Audi RS "Moments of Truth" is a series of highly stylized, dynamic
short-form documentaries that capture a moment in time -- visual, visceral
proof of the impact that technological innovation and risk-taking has had
on performance in a highly competitive world.
This film tells the story of the legendary longitudinally mounted Audi
5-cylinder racing engine used in the IMSA/GTO circuit in 1989 at Sears
Point. Audi driver Hans-Joachim Stuck focuses on the moment when this
fire-breathing, aggressive five cylinder, with its characteristic
wasteplate turbo growl, ushered the Audi
team to victory. The piece then links the motor sports moment of truth to a
story of modern-day design and engine innovation in the 5 cylinder lurking
beneath the hood of the TT RS and unavailable in the standard TT. quattro
GmbH engineer Michael Ganz brings to life the visual technological
advancements of the 5 cylinder engine at the quattro GmbH engine test bed,
and through specific dynamic track footage of the TT RS.
