Audi Sport quattro A1/A2
Speed Champions Version of the '1984 Audi Sport quattro A1/A2' rallye car. My second entry for the '2017 Speed Champions Building Contest'.
About this creation
Link to the contest: Speed Champions Building Contest 2017

The original Audi Quattro competition car debuted in 1980, first as a development car, and then on a formal basis in the 1980 Janner Rally in Austria. Largely based on the bodyshell of the road-going Quattro models (in contrast to the forthcoming Group B cars), the engine of the original competition version produced approximately 300 bhp (224 kW; 304 PS). In 1981, Michèle Mouton became the first female driver to win a world championship rally, piloting an Audi Quattro.[1] Over the next three years, Audi would introduce the A1 and A2 evolutions of the Quattro in response to the new Group B rules, raising power from the turbocharged inline 5-cylinder engine to around 350 bhp (261 kW; 355 PS).

The Quattro A1 debuted at the WRC 1983 season opener Monte Carlo Rally, and went on to win the Swedish Rally and the Rally Portugal in the hands of Hannu Mikkola. Driven by Stig Blomqvist, Mikkola and Walter Röhrl, the A2 evolution won a total of eight world rallies, three in 1983 and five in 1984. Two examples of the same car completely dominated the South African National Rally Championships during 1984 to 1988, with S.A. champion drivers Sarel van der Merwe and Geoff Mortimer.

A 1988 Audi Ur-Quattro driven by Audi Tradition driver Luciano Viaro won the 13th Silvretta Classic Montafon.

I LOVE THIS CAR!


1 Front 3_4
I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.

Just one thing:
Stickers are pretty annoying (when used to create the shape of certain car parts) and I mostly try to avoid them.
But, this time they were necessary.
The car looks cool without them already, but for a rallye car leaving them out wasn't an option.
No rallye car is complete without appropriate advertising labels!

Of course, a minifig fits inside!
He's so happy to drive a real car and not that e-tron trash...

Quoting Jack Sparrow Awesome work on this! Got as lot of details, and the presentation is outstanding!
Thanks, Captain! Although, presentation was fairly easy this time. No need to edit out the whole background with GIMP. Just added the emblem, writing and did some cleaning...

Quoting Sir Flexalot What? Audi? Rally car? I never knew they did those! This is an amazing model!
Yeah, back in those days, as cars were big, boxy, beasts of joy! No-one wasted a thought about the hybrid-junk Audi comes up with. *sigh* Innocent times... ;-) Thanks!

Quoting Nick Barrett Superb entry, this should do well. Pure Group B awesomeness!
Thanks, Nick! I guess, I should make the 'A2' version, that monstrously overpowered wing-beast, for even more Group B awesomness!?

Quoting Petey Bird Wow man, amazing job on this one! The shape, the colors, the stickers, everything looks right. Really cool to see a rally car in speed champions trim. The added ride height looks great with these mudguards.
Thanks, mate! I agree with you on the ride height, although this didn't allow the Speed Champions axle holders to be used. So what...

Quoting Parrington Levens The legend. I heard there was a 600 hp version of this car that raced in the USA and kicked some as at the time. And Barto has raised a point I have been dwelling on for an age, may have to do it quick now, but that was to turn a SpeedKing into a star fighter. Their cocpits are like just begging for the wheels to come off and wings to be attached to the sides! lol... Beautiful car mate. The stickers the colours and all. Now to figure out a way to make those wheel arches thicker? I can't believe how those crowds used to just stand along side the dirt tracks as these beasts literally flew past!
Yeah, there was that beast, they turned into a spoiler with an engine. The Pikes Peak version A2. Monster! They flew past? Sadly, sometimes they plowed through... I know that the wheel arches should be wider, I tried it, but didn't look too good. (On this one!) The Pikes Peak version is a different thing. Seven, or eight wide could be good. Didn't you come up with these space racers, racing on Mars and in space?

Quoting El Barto ! Great entry! How about turning this into a GAIA fighter?
Flying Audi? :-D But, I definitely need to try the windshields on a fighter!

Quoting Sven ;o) Fantastic work my friend! Love the paint scheme, the shape and your idea with the roll cage a lot. A really nice detail!
Thanks, my friend! Instead of adding stickers, I try to add as much brick-built details as possible.

Quoting Daniel Ringuette Great job! I like the roll cage, windshield wipers, interior details as well as the shaping of the car! I feel that stickers are fine with this model and make it look more realistic! Well done, Marc!
Thanks! Now with stickers, this is a true Speed Champions creation! ;-) ~Cheers

Quoting Gallardo of LU what a fantastic Quattro, I love seeing these legends of Rally make it to 'city scale' the cage is a great touch, and the body work is accurate (as I've come to expect of your cars) but I am hung up on 1 detail... How is that 1x2 jumper attached? if not glued I can not solve that connection. also as you mentioned the stickers are needed for a car like this, to see a rally car with no livery is just wrong (unless it is a road version) but at the same time I can't stand stickers. on the whole though this is a win for me, maybe i should set about building an 037 for this to compete against, Lancia > Audi ;)
Thanks, dude! I'd sooooo much like to see you do a Lancia for an epic competition. You mean the jumper plate with the antenna? Hehe, it's held together by pure magic. ;-) Nah, I used a simple 2x2 turntable without the base. Maybe I'll post a photo of it...

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Standing ovation! This car is absolutely stunning. It looks like a diecast model. I love all the decal work mixed with brickwork. The roll cage in such a small space is just brilliant! Most impressive!
Thank you, man! Finding a satisfying solution for the rear window was more difficult! I cosidered placing a sticker for the c-pillars, but scrapped that idea, as it goes totally against my philosophy. The cage pretty much fell into position by itself. ~Marc

Quoting Blaine R. Another excellent creation. Adding the roll cage i side a car this scale is a fantastic achievements.
Thanks, Blaine! A roll cage is a must have for a rallye car, imo. So, I had to squeeze it in. Fortunately it wasn't that difficult! ~Marc
