Will the Heritage of the Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO Rub Off on the New TT RS?

Submitted by on August 14, 2012

 

“A race car has a soul, and the Audi 90 Quattro had a very special soul.”  Hans-Joachim Stuck

Hans-Joachim Stuck reminisces about the Audio 90 Quattro IMSA GTO with an infectious passion in this video, which is set against the backdrop of the team’s win at Sears Point in the 1989 IMSA GTO series.

As he enthuses about the uniquely wonderful longitudinally-mounted 530kw turbo five cylinder under the bonnet, Audi engineer Michael Ganz talks about what they learned from it and draws parallels to the turbocharged five cylinder that’s headed for the modern Audi TT RS.

The video is packed with classic IMSA GTO footage and Hans’ infectious storytelling and is well worth a watch!
