The Trabant pictured above is a late-model example that started life with a 40-horsepower 1.1-liter four-cylinder engine borrowed from the Volkswagen Polo. Seemingly well-versed in engine replacements, the owner initially upgraded his car with a 1.3-liter engine, later moved up to a 1.8-liter, then a 2.0-liter, and finally shoehorned a GTI-sourced turbo four that he ran until he got the chance to buy a wrecked first-generation Audi TT. Naturally, he saved the engine for his Trabant - and that's how now Arek Winianski drives his so called Trabant Quattro TT with a 1.8 engine. FULL STORY TO FOLLOW IN THE COPY.
