About the 1985 Audi Quattro S
While working for Car & Driver Magazine, Brock Yates founded the event known as the Cannonball Run. After the event ended in 1979, he began organizing an event called One Lap of America which was run for the first time in 1984.
As Cannonball became the stuff of legend, his friends at Brumos Audi asked if Brock would help them design and market a Brock Yates Cannonball Edition of the 4000S Quattro. The cars featured unique Recaro seats, a Nardi steering wheel, Gotti Wheels, an advanced trip computer, a larger fuel tank, a unique Red White & Blue stripe on the hood and doors, special badging, and Brock Yates hand signed each car’s trunk.
12 cars were modified by the Jacksonville dealer and 6 were sold there, 6 in Atlanta. Only #1 and #11 survive today. This is #1 of
12. Ed Bolian bought this car is 2016 with the plan of running in the final The 2904 event. The car had been sitting in a garage in Lansing, Michigan for 19 years when Ed found it and unfortunately it could not be revived in time for the drive so Ed bought a 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham Limousine for the event.
The following year, the car was ready to go and there was an event inspired by The 2904 called The C2C Express that was happening. Ed was joined by Alex Roy (whose record he had broken), and Arne Toman (who would go on to beat Ed’s 28:50 record 3 years later) and they drove the car from the Red Ball to Portofino in 37 hours 40 minutes.
