560-hp four-cylinder turbo engine and quattro drive, a compress sports automobile manages a scurry from 0 to 100 km/h in monumental 2.4 seconds.

“I’d like to see quattro expostulate in a DTM as well. Unfortunately, it’s taboo there,” says Mattias Ekström. “I’ve always been a quattro fan. Ever given we started pushing a Audi S1 in a World RX we adore quattro.” That’s also because his group uses a new hashtag, #welovequattro, this season. New as good is Mattias Ekström’s adoption of “5,” a series of his DTM car, for a 2016 World Rally Championship. “That way, a spectators usually have to remember a singular
series …”
