Last week, we featured a 1981 Audi quattro Group 4 replica. This week? Well we’ve progressed to an Audi Sport quattro S1 Pikes Peak replica. Here’s the ad (translated from German):

You have the unique opportunity to purchase an Audi S1 ​​Pikes Peak replica. With the legendary Audi S1 ​​Pikes Peak, Walter Röhrl broke the record in the famous mountain race up Pikes Peak (Race to the Clouds) in America in 1987.

The Pikes Peak represents the final expansion stage of the Audi S1. In addition to its appearance, this example impresses with its technically and qualitatively high-quality equipment. The components installed range from a polygon exhaust turbocharger, which not only ensures sufficient power but also the typical 5-cylinder turbo noise, to a 3-way adjustable KW Competition chassis (tuned on a driving dynamics test bench) to an AP Racing brake system. A straight-toothed 6-speed dog-ring gearbox (racing gearbox) and an FIA safety tank system are also installed.

If you are interested, we can provide you with a comprehensive list of the installed components. The Pikes Peak has German road approval (with an exception) and is therefore particularly attractive and unique. Attention: This vehicle could make you smile all the time, there is an explicit risk of addiction!!!

The vehicle is owned by the customer and is therefore sold on behalf of the customer.
