This Audi is originally a US spec car imported to the UAE in 2018. Most of the modifications were made by the previous owner in the US. The A4’s factory AMB 1.8 litre engine was upgraded to a larger 50mm Turbonetics turbo. The factory Quattro drivetrain transmits power to all 4 wheels via a 5-speed manual.
The bodywork and the interior are in great shape with the exception of the front bumper. This was adjusted to fit a larger intercooler. The interior is largely stock and still maintains the factory fitted Audi Sport steering wheel, leather upholstery and accessories. The current owner imported the vehicle to the UAE in 2018 and has maintained it over the past years.
