KRB Audi S1 Silhouette 1.0

    If you are a frequent visitor of Speedhunters.com, or any tuner blog or site, there is no way you never seen this car before.

    It’s a one-off build by KRB-Trading of Norway for the “Extreme”-class race series, held as part of the Scandinavian Gatebil tuner/car culture festivals. A car built with basically no rules and limits. Somewhere between Unlimited Time Attack and “cure for polar night depression”. Over 1000 bhp at all four wheels. Big turbo lag, even bigger wings.



    While it looks like an Audi S1 Evo 2 rally car on steroids, pretty much only the S2 cylinder head sports the four rings. This emulsification of Scandinavian performance and tuner culture further consists of a VW Transporter inline-5 2.5 litre TDI engine block, Comp Turbo CT 43 71/79 turbocharger, Sellholm MPG Rallycross transmission and front differential, KRB-custom Ford 9” rear differential, Porsche Cup tires, Volvo S80 front uprights on all four corners and a fully custom tubeframe chassis that may even have some sheeting left from a FWD ’85 Audi Coupé, among other things. All clad in a Quattro E2 Pikes Peak replica bodykit, modified to fit the tubeframe and extended wheelbase.

    With this mod I tried replicating the car in as much detail as possible, and feasible, for Assetto Corsa. As the car was constantly being modified over the years it’s pretty much impossible to get everything 100% right. The cockpit for example is closer to the current form of the car (which now runs a twinturbo V8), while the engine and body are closer to the state of the car in 2013.

    Suspension and cockpit are fully animated, plus visible aero settings too. Custom soundbank.

    As with my Porsche, the car comes with 8 skins, two based on the real KRB, three based on classic Audi motosport liveries, one inspired by Karl Werner's Bergcup S2, one inspired by Darren McNamara's new DMAC S1 drift car, and a clean one. Skin template is included, let me know what you create with it.

    Aero of the car has been simulated in OpenFoam, and makes the car pretty tricky to handle. See for yourself…

    Wow. Where to begin? Surprisingly, this car drives much easier than I thought it would. Downforce probably helps in that regard. Just brutal power in this car. Brutal. However, she handles like a much more nimble car which is very nice. You went above and beyond the typical modelling details and I certainly appreciate all the time spent putting detail into this KRD Audi S1 Silhouette. Every detail is 5-star in my book. FFB feels awesome! When I'm really pushing the lateral grip, almost to the limit there is this feeling that's hard for me to describe, but it feels natural - not artificial - and that is much appreciated as well. The entire team should be applauded for this wonderful effort. Thanks!

    Its a great car but it needs some tweaks, for a example i cant modify gear box, and i cant make the car drift even at 1st gear full throttle but the car is fun.

      Gearbox is not adjustable on the real car. And it's got racing slicks, it'snot a drift car (tho if you select the semi-slick tires it can get sideways if you provoke it).
