When Audi Sport factory driver and two-time Le Mans winner Andre Lotterer contacted us during his search for a Sport quattro, his cred as an enthusiast went up in our book. Sure, he’s a factory driver and one of the inaugural WEC champions, but to be all that and be so genuinely into Audis as to pick up such a niche automotive icon is above and beyond. The car he purchased, as he relayed to us, was a Hohenester tuned 450-hp red example fitted with rally spec Speedline alloys. Even better, you’ll see below proof that it’s no garage queen.
