TheNew100/200 Series.

Why is the Audi 100/200Series such a joy to drive? Why does it lighten the heart, quicken the pulse and elevate the spirit? Perhaps it's the unmistakable air of control. The quiet confidence of Anti-Lock Braking (ABS).The superior handling of second generation Quattro, a more highly evolved oermanent all-wheel drive svstem. The obscure , technical wizardry of negative steering roll radiwwhich exerts self-stabilizing force, even as traction conditions change. Or is it secu&y of another kind?The unprece-

rn

dented security of the Audi Advantage. Security no other car maker can match. For example, for the first three years or 50,000 miles, the no-charge maintenance and limited warranty of the Audi Advantage* means all repairs, all scheduled maintenance, all routine oil changes are all paid for. The wheel alignments, the brake pads, the wiper blades, you name it. Even nonnal wear-and-tear is covered,except for tires and soft trim, of course. In short, it pays for virtually everything but gasoline. (An owner still has a few responsibilities, after all; so there's some inevitable fine print about negligence and accidents.)

Ford of Eumpe takes lead on chassis development

e r g i n g the High level talks aimed at m American International Automobile Dealers Association (AIADA) and the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), though termed preliminary by spokesmen from each side, took place recently in a two-hour meeting at NADA's McLean, Va., headquarters. The NADA forces were rewsented by Executive Vice Resident F& ~ c ~ a ntwo h ~ NADA , dealer directors and another NADA staff member. AIADA brought Resident Robert McEIwaine, Chairman Lee G. Seidman and anAlADA dealw duector. "The talks are in the embryonic stages." said AIADA's Seidman. "We have an interest, but we aren't pushing it." Ron Tonkii, NADA first vice president and the man many say has the inside line to the presidency in 1989, feels that a merger of the two groups would be a g o d tbiog as the difference between import and domestic dealers has emded. "We are just plain and simple dealers now," he said. AlADA began as the Vobwagen American Dealers Association, at a time when V W dealers accounted for 60 percent of impori sales in the US.. but changed its name and charter in 1972 when the group recognized the growth of franchises selling Japamse automobiles. rn

Europe plans to put the freeze on the Japanese

U considered by the European Commisslon, sales of Japanese cars in rhe European Economic Community would be capped at 9.5 percent of the market until 1993. But since this agreement would supersede internal barriers, it could actually increase i n pons in some countries. Though the proposed cap is quite close to the total number of imports allowed into Europe today, the number of Japanese cars permitted to enter individual countries within the EEC varies greatly. In Ilaly, for example. cumnt restrictions hold the Japanese to a total of 3000 impons each year. The plan would overturn this limit, which could allow lapanese automakers to cut deeply into Fiat's 60 percent share of the domestic market.

Trim off some pounds and Ford's new Super Coupe would be an undeniable step closer to fully living up to its name.

As a test driver myself, I can tell you tha! the Porsche drivers are among the toughest critics in the world, and their sensitivity and high standards have sent many a tire company packing. Other key tests involve dry and wet handling. F o r the dry portion Porsche uses the famed Nurburgring track, I4 miles of sudden turns, high bunking and ferocious straightaways. Every 4 laps, the test engineers examine the tire for unacceptable wear characteristics. Porsche would rather have a tire that is predictable in its behavior than one with unpleasant surprises.

Considn that the Grwp 7 (yes, the name is borrowed from the unlimited Can-Am series) class cars an equipped with side dams and powwful e n g i i that g e m t e up to 0.6 hp. but weigh barely 60 grams. That's a horsepower to weight ratio of 0.1 kilogram pa horsepower; an F1 cat has a horsepower to weight ratio of 0.7 kilograms. This means thst the Gmup 7 or open elass slots, which can hit 10 to 12 gs, will aaclerate from 0 to 100 kmlh in 0.4 secontls-aboul seven times as fast as Aynon Senna's M c b n . The previous world lap m r d of 2.181 seconds (which was to be bmLur in Chicago). was sct on a Blue King track in Toulouse, France, at the I987 World Championships. That's 49.519 actual mph. And while thst doesn't sound t w imp m i v e . slcd car racns are quick t o tcU you about the difference in scale. In full-size terms. rams say. that 1124tb scale car was traveling at 1188 mph. But the Europeans take their racing seriously, too. S o seriously that they showed up for practice at Grand Raceway at 3 a.m. on the day of the fmt event. Many of the top Americans were there as well, re-jigging their cars to suit the peculiarities of the Chicago track. Other early-morning contenders were frantically working with glue, scissors and wire m prepare for the firs! compctit'ive event of the Championships, the Grwp C concours. The mles require mirrors and wipers on each vehicle entered, a point some competitors overlwked.
l4

Of the 23 concours entries, the British cars were judged the best. Gary Cannell's Silk Cut Jaguars twk first and second place overall. along with $3,500 in prize moncy. American Jan Limpach's Spice Fiero, complete with racing m p o r t e r , was third. The detailing on some of the enbies included radio aerials, liveried drivers and even working LED lights front and rear. Slots not only go fast, they lwk great doing it. Qualifying for the 22 races began June 24 with some interesting twists. One German learn-Diem Jens and BurWlard Werner 4 v e d in Omago with no cars or e q u i p m n t because the airline sent their luggage to a w k country. The pair didn't mind losing their undenuear, but they really needed those race cars. So, being resourceful, they borw e d and begged mntmllcrs, t d s , spares and body pans and cobbled logether a race car-an untried product that managed to dominate its class in the finalsession. The marathon race, originally billed as the 24 Hours of Chicago, was shortened to 12 hours. but retained some of the Satthe atmosphere with its old-style driver's sprint to the start. How did they accomplish that? By placing the cars on the start line and having the drivers run from the street comer outside Lhc racewayaontmllers in handto the track. 'There was a $200 prize for the f m t lap leader. The LcMans dash, it happens, wasn't to the swiftest, but the smanest. Clylh Van Buggenhoul of Brazil knew he couldn't outsprint the field so he ouunaneuvered them

by taping his controller o his fingers. While the others tried to clip controllers to connectors. he was $200 richer. And his shrewdness paid off as he was the overall winner as well. Racer's tape works no matter the series in which it appears. Other similarities with full-size formula racing included course conml. with s m e gically placed "marshals." responsible for untangling the comer pile-ups and scrutineering-ver the racer's nemesis. In the Group 12 Coupes de Benelux race, t h m cars were penalized for rules infractions: one car was t w low and two were t w wide. And a driver had better watch his language. Lap penalties can be handed out for swearing. Hot tempers keep some drivers from completing a single lap! Many of the 22 races were non-invitational, including the event for non-pmfessional racers which offered a (full-size) 1988 Pontiac Fiero as first prize. Unlike Amcrican races, the World Finals are "invitation only." Several imponant American racers, including three-time World Champion Paul Pfeiffer, P.A. Watson and Jan Lasler, stayed home in protest. But it didn't seem to matter as the Americans continued their winning streak-six victories in seven championships-when Mike Swiss, racing for the Stu Koford team, proved to be tw tough for the competition. And this year, in qualifying. American Gary Pueu set a new world recod2.070 seconds. Over I200 mph. And drag racing's Joe Amato thinks he's quick? AUTOWEEK AUGUST 22. 1988

In 1991 comes R6, the replacement for Rover's smallest. the Mini-derived Metro. It uses many of the present car's components, hut is powered by 1.1- and 1.4-liter versions of the K engine. Day intends to maLe tmter use of the Range Rover name in future. The present Range Rover has just k e n uprated again with leather seats and more interior wood. W y next year it'll get stodard ABS; later

in the year there'll be an all-new interior more in keeping with its exotic price. But the big news is a long-wheelbase version, huge inside, with a 4.2-liter version of the ex-Buick pushrod alloy V8. Power is said to be 2W hp and top speed more than 110 mph.

Designed to fight both 928% and SfXSEC. it probably also will be made evenndy as a convutibk. The top engine will be a 350 hp fourvalves-per-cylinder version of the 5.0-liter V12 from the 7-series. Lesser engines will include a two-valve V12 (300 hp) and 3.0liter and 3.5-liter sixes. The full-house model will have ekcuonically controlled shock absorbvs which raise the tail, lower nose at speed, and limit cornering roll, plus lots of other wizardry. The new 3-series, still the car on which BMW's bealth depends, comes out in 1990. With styling very much in the vein estab lished by he 5-series and 7-series, it will offer much more interior room and bener aerodynamics, but with sleekness and elegance.

mid-90s. Egan says that's a less profitable arena lhan the ones Jaguar is currently in.

Mcrades-Bem
Two new models are due by '91. The fmt is the SL. due for launch (and expon) during 1989, and the second is the S-class sedan. l k SL is--like all new Benzes-evolutionary in styling. PaFked with equipment and plushness, it will use the full range of c m t V8s and a six or two at the bottom end. Gadgets naturally include ABS, elecmnic traction conml and one of M e d e s ' various tram control devices A V12 version is possible, although nci for a while. Having had to hear the burden of hearing superlatives heaped on BMW's 7-series, Mercedes intends to make the new Sclass a great car. The premium edition will have a 6.0liter V12 with 350 hp (a 5.2-liter V12 with 320-330 hp is also likely) and engine choices will reach down through the V8 range to a 3.0-liter six in the most basic versions. Wheelbase, but not the car, will be longer than ever. The drag coefficient is said to go below 0.30. Equipment will include double-pane windows that darken in bright light. The idea is to kill heat and noise in a car which will have a bigger glass area than most. Top models will get a development of the air suspension in current models. There's also talk of a six-speed automatic transmission. electronically controlled. and of an active four-whee-steering system to be introduced a year or two after launch.

memorate it. The car will be long and roomy, in the spirit of the good but littleloved 604. The smaller 505 will also die to make way for the new flagship, indicating the 605 will be sold in the U.S. Industry insiders say the new car will be a Pininfarina design (as are the 205 and 405) and will he powered by a familiar range of 2.0liter and 2.2-liter gas and diesel fours (both turbocharged and normally aspirated) with the plushest car powered by a redeveloped Douwin V6 of a little under three liters.

Volkswageo VW may no longer build cars here, but the U.S. is still firmly in its plans. First up is the Corrado coupe. A four-seat threedoor, reminiscent of the first Giugiarodesigned Scirocco but drawn entirely within VW's Wolfsburg works, bows in Europe at this fall's Birmingham show and will debut here soon after. The first versions will have a 2.0-liter four making 150 hp with the aid of VW's G-lader supercharger. in 1990, the Corrado will be first to use the RV6. a narrow-angle V6 of 2.4 and 2.8 liters, with four valves per cylinder and outp t s of around 170 and 190 hp. It is thought that the Conado will use only the smaller engine; the bigger will be used for the Passat. VW's big sedan. Late lhis year VW will show the Golf Syncro GT. a precursor of the all-new Golf for 1992. It will have the 2.0-liter G-lader engine and VW's 4wd system to deal with the car's 150 hp on slippery surfaces. Among other projects are a seven-step autoF'eugeot matic gearbox (to be seen first on the PasNext year is the French fum's centenary, sat) and an air suspension system under and it plans to launch a new flagship, the joint development with Continental. the t i n 605, in next August or September to com- people, which has an adaptive damper sysM

tem to limit comering roll and nose dive. Late next year the Passat, which went on sale in Europe this past spring, will bow here as a 1990 model. Unlike past practice. the largest VW will no longer be a mere rebadging of the smallest Audi. And unlike Audi's 80190, the Passat's engine is transverse-mounted. This, plus four more inches of length. make the V W a much more spacious car lhan its cousin. In 1992 we'll see that the new Golf bean plenty of similarity to the present model. Overall length will remain the same but wheelbase will gmw by several inches. Suspension will continue to be by MacPherson struts in front, torsion beam axle at the rear. Engineered to take a wide range of fwd fours, turba diesels and G-laderquipped as well as normally aspirated, it will also get the 2.4-liter RV6, pmbably with 4wd. The basic GTI will use a new 2.Oliter. pmducing 120 hp with two valves per cylinder and another 18 hp in 16V form. Power steering and ABS will be standard. Volvo The 440 hatchback will be introduced to the public at me Paris show in Octobu, h e biggest news from Volvo for the foreseeable future. A hunt-driver a little bigger than an Escon and using Renault's 1.7-liter four, the car was fm s h o w to the pess last month and is a variant of the 480 coupe. A fourdoor sedan. the 460. is alw, expected evenhdly. Volvo BV, the Dutch affiliate of Sweden's Volvo, builds the 400 series and may be lwking to sell these cars in the U.S. despite objections from Sweden (AW, July I I). In 1990. spies say. a more powerful 2.0liter version of the 480 is due, possibly with four-wheel drive. rn

Davey Alison did not mincs any words: "I hate road coursc races. There ain't no mom to do nolhing when something goes wrong." Most of the scrapping around the 2.4mile wursc was among contenders f a the season championship. Points lcada W a l k led thne times for seven laps, second-place Elliott led twice for 20 laps, and even though third-place Earnhardt didn't lead a lap, he was close all day. Fourth-place Schrader led once for five laps and fifthp l w Teny Labonte led twice for 12. Polesitter Gcoff Bodine (sixth in points) led 10 early laps, but fell out of it when he blew a tirrandwncked. Talk sbwt your otha hanl-luck lorn: DaneU Waltrip was leading until his hnosmission quit with four laps left: Labonte lost third-place in the f d laps because of a tire which went flat during a caution; Sehrader was a top five nuum until a broken windshield and flat tirc got him at the e d , Gant led nine laps and was second when his Chevy's ma end went bad, M i k e Waltrip was -wand when his transmission went Jwth; Kyle Pmy w@ a s @ wf d when he wrsked. Even the winner and mom-up had their problems. Rudd pined for an early tire change, only to leam thm all four t i t s w m fine. "I got rcal down after that, mainly because I'd messed up," he said. "But (cmchief) Lany McReplds talked me bsck toward the h n t . Our gns-and-go stop on a lare caution got us right back in it." Wallace had so many flats he couldn't count them.

Rudd and Labonte ran 1-2-3 from lap 74 until Rudd passed Walnip on lap 87. "1 felt I could get by him if we ever bad enough green laps," Rudd said. Thnc yellows f a 13 laps waved in the final 30 laps. "I had figured out w h m to pass, but it was easier when he began to smoke. All of a sudden T m y wasn't back there (having pined), but Rusty was. I knew he'd come after me hard, so I watched exactly where he ran behind me. I was quicker over threr;quarters of the WEk, h t he was a lot faster through the last two nuns. the ones leading to tk flagstand." And what of Wallace's last-lap strategy? "It was a gwd jolt in the rear.'' Rudd said. "I feh it all up and down my neck. I was half-way out of control. anyway, but he almost turned me around. I was fortunate not to wrsk right there under the flag." But Rudd was nothing if m undentancing abcut NASCAR's s e t - m v i l policy t o ward mannen on the last lap.

It wasn't feud, or even fuel, but an elecmcal w~lnectionon a fuel pump tha~ daamined who would leave Sean Point with the GTU points lead.

But the stary of the mceling was. dependig on your point of view, either Brabham's record eighth consecutive victory or the fact that the Jaguars this time made a real race of it. The laller was no surprise to Jaguar chief engineer Ian Reed, who mid on Saturday. "There's no real secret; Sears Poiint has a IM of slow comers. and our cars work very well in slow corners." Afte~ the race Brabham had U, a m . "I was faster in the fast corners and they w m f w r in thc slow comers," he said. All of which should make the last thne races of the x a s o M w o on street circuits and one on a fairground4ven more interesting. "We d l y wanled to do well hurt," Brab ham said. "because anything can happen on a stnet (rack. This gives me a little buffer (30 points) going into h s e races." From the Porsche point of view, meanwhile, perhaps James Weaver put it best Saturday night. "There hasn't been an lMSA race since Sebring," be said. "Everythmg since has been a massacre."

Marirs, and during the war he bad offend the American-buii ScrippsBooth car from premises In PiccarWly. Loadon. Comcidcnrally, hnm 1908 unbl 1911, thm was a firm called HE.& F. Momff operating fmm No. 4 Athehtane Mews. Stmud G w Road, North London. and 11 built the Moniss steam car. I met Mr. Frank Mmnss when he was m his eighhes anl living m Bnghm, Susrex, but he strcnwusly denmi any wnastlon whatsccvcr wth the chap from Raad~IIy As $all this IS not d s m g emugh, the San&ingbam car. built in King's Lynn, Norfolk, from 1902-1905, was also tk work of a Frank Moniss, and thu pamculsr gentlemen was no charlatan. He had been official repaim to King Edward VII, supplying the latter's Daunkrcar(hwathcusc0f the nune of the mynl r c s d e m for his own car) and scllmg and modlfyrng old Dplmlers and Benz cars. Thm then was Um author Frank Momss who wnte a biography of the two Rolls brothers entltled Two Brow Brorhers. Some day, s o wll MH( them all out. The Morriss-London car was bodied attractively ~ n i tlally by Morgan. the &builders of Loghton Burwd in Bcdfonlsilk. and 1 by Saunders Garage, London. who bougbt up all the w o l d chssls. Quite a few were wld as lslldaukts to the iw W e . but despite the allusions to Lwdon and all the myal C O M M P of~ the ~ Moniss name, the Morris-London was as much a sham as any of its sirmlar mmpetitors. Underneath the pollshed aluminum hood was. admittedly, a Mornss-London motor. but the maker's plate also vouchsafed the mfornmon that it was bwlt by Supnme Motor Corp.

It was. m any event. all over for all these pswdoBntish makes by 1921. and although the Momss-London rema~ncdm the buyer's guik until 1925, this was smply a scllmgoff of old stock by the agents.
