Before turning into a rally car it was featured in a number of VAG Press materials and CAR Magazine did a good article on the car in Apr 1982 where they followed the Monte Carlo Rally in it...

VAG Press photo of BRP 223X attached.
Good to see you on here.

Thanks KenQuattro - should have joined this forum years ago!

A few more photos of BRP 223X from when it followed the Monte Carlo Rally in 1982 for an article in CAR Magazine... It was not long after the photo shoot that the car went to David Sutton Motorsport and got converted to a rally car.

Our old 1988 coupe quattro B3 reg was F924VRP it was reg on the 14th Nov 1998 by Vag UK, never saw it in a magazine but thought it could have been one of the first in the country or maybe the one they had at the NEC show in October 1988 that I sat in, as that was a white 10v quattro, always like to think that perhaps it was ! We finally sold in in 2006 having owned it since 1993. Appears to be deceased now as last MOT ran out in Nov 2014
