The body - an Audi 80 was built by Audi and shipped to Porsche where the suspension was uprated and lowered by 40mm, four pot Brembo brakes and vented discs were fitted, the 6 speed gearbox reworked to accept and respond to the power given by Audi's famous 2.2 litre engine with larger turbo. Door mirrors and wheels were taken from the 968. The car achieved 162mphand interestingly, Autocar in test recorded 0-30mph in an unbelievable 1.5 seconds (which outpaced the McLaren F1) and 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds.

Other examples of the many improvements include; brakes uprated to Porsche GT3 four pot calipers, uprated turbo, oil cooler, suspension and custom mapping.
