Home / Automotive / News / Video: A Trabant Gets An Audi Tt Engine!!


The Trabant was produced in East Germany by VEB Sachsenring from 1957-1990 and continued until 1991. This particular Trabant has been completely rebuilt around an Audi TT powertrain. 

Arek Winiarski, from Poland, originally purchased this Trabant 601s with a 600 cc two-stroke two-cylinder engine 14 years ago. The Trabant now holds a 1.8-liter 20v BAM inline-four taken from a 2001 Audi TT. Winiarski did not stop at the engine, he swapped over the entire Audi TT drivetrain as well; this includes the six-speed manual transmission and Haldex "Quattro" four-wheel drive system. This helps the little sedan to reach 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and 0-124mph in 15.5 seconds. 

It is absolutely perfect! Watch the video below to see more about the hybrid-car!
