Audi S1 Building of Walter

Having been competing in motorsport from a young age and growing up watching Group B rally championships I fell in love with the all mighty Audi Quattro. So after a few late nights I created my take of the Audi S1 and Walter was born (named after the legendary Walter Rohrl). I wanted something with that old school feel on the outside and but under the body, filled with all the latest technology. The plan is for the car to be used for Hill Climb events and what ever else tickles my fancy! Check out walters Video and Pic’s
