History of the Audi 5 Cylinder Engine Video

I must admit I am a fan of the Audi 90 Quattro and its historic prowess, and Audi of America have fetched us this excellent insight.

The film tells the story of the legendary longitudinally mounted Audi 5-cylinder racing engine used in the IMSA/GTO circuit in 1989 at Sears Point.

Audi driver Hans-Joachim Stuck focuses on the moment when this fire-breathing, aggressive five cylinder, with its characteristic wasteplate turbo chatter in mid shift, ushered the Audi team to victory.

The piece then links the motor sports moment of truth to a story of modern-day design and engine innovation in the 5 cylinder lurking beneath the hood of the TT RS and unavailable in the standard TT. quattro GmbH engineer Michael Ganz brings to life the visual technological advancements of the 5 cylinder engine at the quattro GmbH engine test bed, and through specific dynamic track footage of the TT RS.

Surprisingly omitted is any reference to the Audi RS3 which us Europeans have access to.

Which Car do you prefer over stateside the TTRS or the Audi RS3?
