This is my fourth car pixel. To be precise it is a Gr.A Audi Quattro from 1982, with the number that M.Mouton drove with in that year. I got rid of the sponsors and gave it rims from another year, but besides that it should be exactly like the the original one.
Finally, I finished this piece after a few months, After many attempts to get the colouring right. And at last, things worked out as I wanted it to, which resulted in this piece.
I used quite some references, but the most important references can be found here.
I also wanted to make an animated image before, but I didn't take the time to do it. But with this preview image I made my first animated pixel, too. (PS: The animation looks best in Firefox on my PC, cause of the frame rate)...

Thanks for the comments so far ^^ I made a shorter preview image for this week, to get below the 10k size limit for the weekly showcase on the frontpage (I see i'm fourth now, so hoping for a top 3)
