Why the 200 quattro?

Audi's five-cylinder 2144cc turbocharged 200 quattro would not be many people's first choice as a potent rally car, so why is it being campaigned in the British Open? According to Edward Rowe of Audi Sport, there was not, in fact, a great deal of choice. As the Coupé used in 1987 went out of production at the end of the year, there was very little point in promoting a model that was unavailable...
