1,350 hp and a world record!

This old Audi Coupé has some nice remains since it just broke the world record for acceleration over the quarter mile with a time of 7.47 seconds.

Long before the highly efficient RS3, Audi produced vehicles that hid their play. Rather insignificant in appearance, these proved to be fast and precise thanks to their Quattro all-wheel drive. Equipped with 5-cylinder engine at fabulous musicality which prove to be excellent bases of preparation, these models are sources d’inspiration for many performance enthusiasts. This is the case of Bulgarian Konstantin Dinev which set its sights on an Audi Coupé Quattro produced between 1988 and 1995, based on the Audi 80 sedan.

Complete arsenal

For his project, Konstantin has pulled out all the stops by installing a 2.5-liter engine filled with concrete to withstand the turbo blowing at a pressure of over 4 bars. This 5-cylinder block develops the incredible power 1350 hp on the wheels!

A clutchless dragster transmission supplied by Liberty changes gears by means of compressed air, a system allowing ultra-fast shifts (without cutting the throttle and therefore avoiding wasted time) and tough enough to withstand this cavalry to say the least exceptional

. Built by the Bulgaria’s Heed Auto Team, this car was tested on the runway at Arad International Airport, Romania.

World record

Earlier in the day, a Volkswagen Lupo struck the device which gave the starting signal for the “runs”. Fortunately, this could be repaired in time so that the Audi Coupé set off for a show of force. It covered a quarter-mile (402.3 m) in just 7.47 seconds, shattering the world record in the category of cars with all-wheel drive. To give you an idea of ​​how fast this Audi is, it was timed at the Maximum speed of 303 km / h, which is incredible considering the short distance of this run. Not bad at all for an “old” car!
