    4.2 V8 DTM rally A3

    thought you guys might like this, this is David Kynaston who drives in the rally up in my neck of the woods in Brecon Beacons. this is my favourite sound on all the rally cars that take place.
    nothing beats the sound of this A3 when your actually there mmmmmmm

    it is a 4.2 V8 DTM(not sure what from but i spoke to david before and thats what he says is under there) rally tuned engine that sounds the nuts.

    duely noted lads, someone must have been pulling my plonker at the time then, although when you hear this thing for real about 3 feet away it does sound V8ish, this thing is a purerally car with 2 seats and an engine and thats it, unfortunately i havent seen the engine so cant confirm. i shall try and find out what it is though as it is a monster thats for sure

    No A4/A6 "V" engine will fit an A3 unless they've totally reworked the drive train, subframes, 4WD system and floorplan as the engines mount totally the wrong way. A3 is transverse and the A4 upwards are longitudinal.

    I think it's more likely to be the 2.4 v6 engine from an old 80 or coupe.
