    Cannot say I've ever seen that before.
    The grille threw me off.

    I wonder what's underneath that off center hood scoop.

      Optical illusion. It's centered on the windscreen.

        Dammit, you're right. I was fooled by the reflection and the recollection that the motor in my old 200Q was a bit off center.

    What Kind of Audi is that? I've never seen it before.

    Need more info on this build. What's under the hood? Chevy 502? I'm guessing by the photo credit this is somewhere in Sweden… friggin Scandinavians come up with all the best/batshit-craziest shit.

      Found this (but it doesn't explain enough):
      Dragster with Type44 body. What is underneath? Hard to say, but one thing is sure: Rearwheel drive 😉 The body seems to be the stock metal one. The car starts/started(?) in the "Competition Altered" class with driver Kenth Svensson from Växjö, Sweden. lists for the Type44 that is run under the name "Andersson´s Mek" a personal best of 9,08 seconds for the quartermile with a topspeed of 243km/h (151mph) in the year 1998. At the "Sko Uno Drag Festival" race in Mantorp, Sweden (where the photo was taken), he reached 9.316sec, 234,2km/h (145.5mph) in round two which was the end for him on that day. At the Mantorp qualifying in 2000 he even reached 9,084sec | 240,0km/h (149.1mph) at 0,014 "under", whatever that means. I think that has soemthing to do with a handicap system of that class. After 2000 I could not find any info of races where Kenth Svensson started.

    The body is a Audi 100 2nd generation, we scandihoonians use whatever to run from the polarbears,,,, mantorp is THE dragstrip from -68 , nowadays we do "some" streetracing too… Running under seem to indicate it ran in Bracket ..
