Pedigree makes it cool (just) but it aint no Delta Integrale, Alpine A110 or Mini Cooper S in the rally looks department.

And ontop of that, it loses a grade for being an unobtainable collectors piece.
Uncool.

I'm all for function over form, there are lots of really ugly cars that i like. However, the Sport Quattro just looks somewhere between silly and odd.

I'd love one but I don't think it's cool.

Shouldn't it be cheaper because there's a big chunk missing in the middle?

Chunk shouldn't have been there in the first place!

Dislike modern audis (and most German cars) but this is from their quirky days. Liked the urQuattro, but the "sport" always looked a bit too truncated.

A bit like those old buses that get cut down and used as tow buses.

So gave it a cool, but not a sub Zero.

uber, uber cool.

I can vouch for it. In June 1986, i had the chance to travel as a passenger in one. We had to get to our destination before closing time. Now, the lwb quattro was my dream car from 1980, and i knew a lot about the swb quattro; to travel in one, on a mission, was a dream come true. The rural roads of Cheshire provided the backdrop for my first experience of defying the laws of physics. There's no way we can approach that corner at that speed without braking...erm, we're not braking...perhaps we should be braking, braking really rather hard now because - and oh my GOD! - the quattro devoured the bends like they weren't there. Corner after corner...it both challenged and totally reset your perceptions of what was possible (speed wise) on corner entry and corner exit. It played with physics in a way that we never did in class.

From the rural corners, we finally joined the m-way (M6 maybe - i'm not so sure now) and this car was - well, i think catapulted sums it up best - from the slip road to the outside lane in what felt like split seconds. On the m-way, it ate everything in front of it, and toasted a tailgating BMW 6-er, who's driver probably assumed it was 'just a quattro'...until at 120 mph, the Audi continued to accelerate furiously and easily away from the ailing BMW. We hit a shown 160mph in that Audi (its top speed) on the M6; it felt totally stable; the engine was glorious, the wind noise a bit gor-blimey, and the leather creak, creak, creaked...

After the GTV6 and the Miura, the Quattro (lwb or swb) is my favourite car.

IMHO, the Sport Quattro is cool. Very, very cool :-)

A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.

Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.

I love that off beat 5 cyl rip. Even an normally aspirated beat up coupe sounds magical.

The possibly-Quattro I shot in this short video clip does sound cool, and it was impressive to watch. It moved like it was on gravel when it was just navigating the course in the carpark!

It isn't the same car as the subject of this poll, it just looks similar..

Good car but not cool. Cool if you're a man, but if you turned up in that at a Supermodel's house she'd laugh at you.

Definitely cool.

It's slightly odd looks just add to it for me.


Oh, and that mysterious supermodel would be intrigued (assuming she had a brain) because it isn't such an obvious glamour car. Which is cool.

Thing is, you might just stand her up and go for a self-gratifying blast rather than put up with her whining two-carrot-sticks-are-far-too-much-for-dinner-and-don't-you-think-I'm-gorgeous conversation. Even more cool.

She's a Supermodel looks are everything.

She could be the most beautiful girl in the world but if after five minutes of listening to her I want to slash my wrists due to boredom, she can take a hike home. Then I'll go find a pretty girl with a brain and good conversational skills.
