Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO Dev Drive
In the latest SimBin development blog, Physics & AI team member Mark Reynolds takes the Audi 90 Quattro IMSA racer for a test drive while talking about the history of this famous car. The Audi 90 Quattro is an all-wheel-drive vehicle, and that meant that the physics had to reflect this in the best possible way. SimBin’s physics team member, Marko Hartikainen gave it his best shot and it is reported that the results are nothing less than impressive. In the Video Mark states that Marco really captured the spirit of this GTO legend. The team reports that after the amateur and novice game modes, they are now strengthening the Get Real experience. Knowing that Mark and Marko are both avid Sim Racers, they do know the expectations of the community.

The 1989 Audi 90 IMSA GTO was a wide-body turbocharged 4 wheel drive racers powered by a 5 cylinder 2190cc engine with 20 valves derived from the Group B and Pikes Peak rally cars. With a massive 720hp at 7500 rpm the car could beat the much bigger engined American IMSA GTO monsters.
During a race the car just looked menacing . With an exhaust that was routed trough the passengers door while spitting huge flames generated by the KKK turbo, and the whistle and waste gate noises of the turbo powered engine, it was a feast for the spectating race fans.
