At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed one of the most notable cars in attendance was the Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO from 1989. With its menacing wide exterior, this turbocharged 720bhp five cylinder bruit ran in the International Motor Sports Association’s GTO class races covering 200 to 500km.
It also included not 1 but 2 McLaren F1 GTR’s. The #06R ’95 Le Mans podium finishing F1 GTR in the original Harrods Livery, which has now been converted to be road legal. The other and the first of the “Long Tail” version’s made in ’97 to increase downforce, was #19R in the original presentation Livery.
