Fancy yourself owning a piece of racing history? If your answer is yes, then we have something that should picque your curiosity.
An independent dealer in Las Vegas claims to have an Audi 200 turbo Quattro Trans-Am race car that he claims to be a completely legitimate car that competed at the American Trans-Am series. And that’s not his only claim; he also says it’s the very same Audi that Hurley Haywood drove on his way to winning eight of the 13 races during the 1988 American Trans-Am series.
The seller is also saying that this particular racer was purchased straight from Audi Sport in Ingolstadt, Germany and that it comes with some pretty intimidating firepower underneath its hood, specifically a turbocharged inline-five engine - it produces over 510 horsepower - that was also used by some of Audi’s world rally championship cars.
No word yet on how much this car will cost and anybody who’s interested will need to inquire to the seller to see how much moolah they’re going to need to fork over. But if everything checks out, this Audi 200 Turbo Quattro Trans-Am race car just may be too good of a deal to pass up.
