Nothelle N300 Avant

Post by B300ABT » Tue Feb 06, 2007 2:42 pm

I've had this car for a couple of weeks now. It's the ex Paul Harris ( Audi Driver ) car, and was bought as a RHD replacement for my LHD RS2.
This car seemingly gives away nothing to the RS2 in terms of power and torque, but delivers it in a completely different fashion.
Unlike many other reports, I didn't find the power delivery of the RS2 "manic" - I just found that I tended to be travelling 50% faster than I thought I was very quickly and with very little fuss.
The N300 on the other hand is very noticeably either on or off boost - and when on, it absolutely flies.
Looking forward to getting even better acquainted with the car, whilst being mindful of the fact that in this weather especially, the quattro drivetrain, no matter how good, cannot overcome the laws of physics!

Due to redundancy, I've had to put it up for sale, so pictures and details are here!

A fair amount of interest shown over the past couple of months, but only had one person has come to view it. He liked it, but was actually looking for an RS2!
Will be sorting out new MoT next month, and at this rate may well be hanging on to it for the winter.

Is this car still around? Had a Nothelle S2 Avant and loved it. The car is now in New Zealand and the new owner sends me regular updates on the restoration. That's all great but it just make me realise how much I miss her.

Yes it is a bit rawer than an RS2 but I prefer the Nothelle N300 any day.

Anyway who owns this car now?

Cheers

Rich :D
