It's still a few weeks away from hitting our shelves, but we're loving what we see. One of the most dominant touring cars of the Supertouring era, winner of multiple championships, and which ended up causing the ban on all-wheel drive in the category, the Audi A4 Supertourer, finally in a plastic model. Well-proportioned bodywork, highly detailed interior, voluminous headlights, decal sheet for the BTCC winning version... that being said, we really like very muuuuuch
what we see!

The arrival of Audi into the BTCC came courtesy of experienced racing heads Richard Lloyd and John Wickham (former Arrows Grand Prix team manager). Experienced personnel were signed and soon sent off to Ingolstadt to learn more about the quattro racers while helping to build the race cars.
Audi Sport in Germany provided engineering assistance from Rainer Kamergruber, and engine specialist as the four wheel-drive A4s needed expert set-up work, but otherwise it was a British-run operation. The team raced with the same two cars all year with the spare car based in Germany and allocated on a share basis with the Audi Italia team.
In the 1996 season Biela only had one major shunt, in qualifying at Thruxton when he hit oil, but a day’s grace allowed the team time for a remarkable rebuild of the A4.
The team’s stringent engineering standards were an important part of the success of the operation, with parts “lifed” and tested to an extend that has rarely been seen in the BTCC. Perfect finishing records for both cars; the team’s only non-finish was when Biela was excluded for a driving offence at Snetterton.
At the end of the 1996 season, Frank Biela became the champion with a total of 8 victories, achieving the podium in another 12 occasions, and Audi secured also the Manufactures title.
