Absolutely, but Audi being Audi, the 2144cc was marketed as 2.2, 2226cc was badged 2.3! Well, I guess it was 82cc bigger 😄

Ha, bit of poetic licence maybe..?!!
By the time of the B3 90 2.2E the KV unit was being badged more appropriately!

Would be brilliant to have any info or old road tests on the original 80q🍻
I think I have a magazine road test report in the loft.
Will dig it out and scan it next time I'm up there then post up here.
I held onto it for sentimental reasons as it was the same B2 model I had years ago

Cheers chap, top man🍺
I had a couple back in the 80s, awesome cars. Got one being rebuilt with an ABY, thinking I might put the KK in an early coupe GT 🤔

No worries, watch this space, hopefully later today if I get a minute.

I sold mine around June '91 when I went to Uni. Too expensive for a student budget!
It was a great car, always wished I could have hung onto it.

An extra 100bhp - that will be quick!!

and indeed I did have.......
From Volkswagen Audi Car magazine, January 1984....







I kept this mag as this exactly how my 80q looked, even similar reg. Zermatt Silver and the same steel wheels/trims. Many had the Ronal alloy options fitted.

Awesome, thank you👍
Will PM, be great to have a copy if that’s O.K?

Funnily the 80q s that I had back then (one in 85, the other in 86) were also Zermatt on steel wheels. My current one was Mars Red (just a bare shell at the moment), It came on Ronals but also has a set of steels/hub caps. Mind, could yet go back on the road on a set of Fuchs 😁

My inspiration (except for dodgy front spoiler!). The 80q of Reinhard Rhode, complete with UR running gear and Fuchs.. back in 1983... Proving that a modded 80q is totally in keeping with the period! 😂

It's no problem, just drop me a line.

Sounds like we had similar (good) taste in our early Audis !
