On 15th of October 2007, Prospeed has officially started working on the Audi Quattro S1 Replica - the new race car of the team, a Group B legend from the golden years the rally sport.
An interesting fact for Audi Quattro S1, is that it was the first Group B car tested and developed in a wind tunnel.
Our concept was to preserve the original design and geometrical proportions of the body, chassis,engine and transmission, while
further developing them by fusing the newest motorsport technologies.
Some of the Prospeed's innovations implemented in building the replica, include the one-off composite materials body, precise Engine Management System, F1-inspired suspension components, braking system compliant with the WRC standarts and a lot more.....
Making a modern high-tech race car, while preserving the spirit of the Group B Rally monsters from the 80's is huge undertaking and challange, but impossible is worth doing - the real rally fans deserve it....
This project is for all those fans, that want to hear the Audi 20V L5 engine once again, and for those that will hear it for the first time.
Prospeed Motorsports's Audi Quattro S1 replica will be a reflection of the knowledge, abilities, and dilligence of our team.
The car is designed and built for participation in hillclimb, circuit-race and rally events.The development of the car can be followed on our gallery.
Further techincal specification details will be released upon completion of the project.
