Many preparations see its beginning in a sinister in the ability to install parts of a car damaged in another. But usually not, in the first place choose to prepare a Trabant, or on the other side to modify their mechanics in a way so extreme. But thus was born the Trabant that we present to you today, with engine of Audi TT 270 horsepower and all-wheel drive quattro.
This little Trabant was the dream of restoring her to her owner. It was purchased 14 years ago with the intention of leaving it in working order, for which he laid hold of a engine 1.1 of an old Volkswagen Polo. With the years was improved in, and its owner was increasing the power of the motor with mechanical up to 2.0 liters of a Golf GTI.
What was not expected, this Trabant is its current state, a state that could perfectly pass for a rally car. Its owner siniestró a Audi TT engine 1.8 turbo and quattro, but it seems that the death of the coupe German served to give life to the small car communist. And what a life.
neither short Nor lazy, his owner installed the engine 1.8-TT in the bowels of the Trabant, with a power that now reaches the 270 horses. In a car so small, light and no options to digest so much power, the system of all-wheel drive quattro has also had a second life. Thus was born probably the Trabant sports most effective of recent times.
Continues to maintain the essence of their car simple and humble, despite the fact that its interior has been lost to the communist philosophy. Painted in black keeps the body original, and the only thing that allows you to catch a glimpse of that is not a Trabant any is the intercooler looks in the front. Up the wheels are made of sheet metal, although they hide a new team of high-performance brake.
The result is a Trabant discreet, if you remove the backets and the safety cage, or the box of watches directly imported from the Audi TT donor. But fast, very fast. Accelerates 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds and exceeds 200 km/h. In short, if you wanted a Trabant probably now begin to see the Audi TT with other eyes.
