This ex-works Audi A4 Quattro Supertourer was driven in period by Hans-Joachim Stuck in the German ADAC Super Tourenwagon Cup in 1995. Chassis ST07 is a very early original Quattro that finished 4th overall in the championship and had some great races with likes of Frank Biela, Jo Winkelhock, Roberto Ravaglia and Emanuele Pirro. in 1996 the car was used by Chris Aberdein in the South African Super Touring Championship and it went on to be driven in the Spanish Hillclimb Championship. In 2011, under the ownership of Angel Bello, ST07 won the Canary Islands Championship. The current owner purchased the car in 2014 and returned the bodywork to the original Hans Stuck STW livery. After an invitation to the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, it achieved 13th overall up the hill against some very exotic machinery.
This Supertourer has both a distinguished racing pedigree and genuine front-running pace in the HSCC Supertouring Trophy. It finished 2nd and 3rd at last year’s Oulton Park Gold Cup and can be raced in many prestigious events in 2015, such as the Silverstone Classic. The current owner describes the car as: “on the button and ready to race… A sure fire winner in the right hands or with a novice in the wet! Very easy to drive on the limit in all conditions and benefits from O/E differential mounted PAS.”
Technically the car boasts some quite incredible components. The engine is a 2-litre 4 cylinder developing 290 bhp mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox. The ECU is Bosch 1.7 and the roll bars can be adjusted internally. The cost to build these cars in 1995 was in the millions and to see this level of engineering in the flesh is something very special. A spares package includes: 10 spare wheels and tyres including wets, a set of body panels, front and rear bumpers, carbon parts and brakes. A larger spares package is available through the owner by separate negotiation.
