Audi S1 2E Sport Quattro Replica - 'Pikes Peak'
"Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence". Vince Lombardi.

On the market for the first time, Keith Edward's legendary 800+bhp, SWB, Audi S1
Initially purchased by rally driver Keith as a family road car but eventually hardly used
One day Keith took the decision to prepare it for hill-climbing, initially at local club level, with the car being further developed every year until it was no longer practicable to run it as a road registered car
Developed, developed and developed over the years, there followed about 10 years In the British Hillclimb Championship, a further 4 or 5 enjoying invitation events around Europe, and finally the ultimate accolade, an invitation from Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to take part in 'The Race to the Clouds'

Keith is a talented engineer with a successful garage business in Cumbria and has a legendary attention to detail and, throughout the two decades of development, every nut, bolt, pipe and bracket was given consideration in terms of its weight, fitness for purpose and aesthetic merit with shaving tenths of a second the criteria

There came a point, however, when the only way to make the car more competitive was to shorten the wheelbase and Dialynx of Swindon, renowned Quattro specialists and builders of SWB cars and 'Group B' replicas, were tasked with the job
The body was stripped of its panels, reduced in length by removing 320mm between the B and C posts, and rebuilt using Kevlar composite panels and mouldings (copied directly from Audi UK's own Group B car), with most of the glass replaced by Perspex. Only the original roof and doors remained and even the doors were pared down to about 4lbs in weight

Shortly afterwards the 10-valve engine was replaced by a 20-valve unit which was extensively modified by Dialynx. Details of these engine mods are academic as the engine has been further developed by Keith himself since then (current spec below)

The car's adventures in Europe in this form are all documented in the enormous history file and on a number of YouTube videos

The invitation to run the car at Pikes Peak is a major honour within the hill-climb community and was proudly received by Keith. The Audi was shipped to
Colorado Springs in both 2018 and 2019, however, neither year was to bring fulfilment with the car overheating in 2018 (subsequently sorted and and tested at Blyton Park, pre-COVID) and, despite good practice runs in 2019, the cloud closed in on Race Day and that was that. The full story is on YouTube below.

Whilst intending to return in 2020, COVID regulations, increasing costs and lack of time mean that Keith has, sadly, made the decision that after 30 years, he and his beloved Audi will have to part

We imagine that the car would be welcome again at Pikes Peak and the 'Hundredth Running' of the event takes place this year on June 26th 2022

This car has been viewed more than 2 million times on YouTube and has been magazine featured all over the globe

It's accompanied by 18 box files of history, entry forms, programmes, results sheets and 30 years of correspondence, MSA paperwork, log books etc.
"Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence" said Vince Lombardi, after whom the Superbowl is named. To suggest that Keith has pursued perfection is no understatement, he has undoubtedly achieved excellence.
