1982 Audi Quattro Coupé
Chassis no. 900190
One of the most influential designs of recent decades, the Audi Quattro brought four-wheel drive into the motoring mainstream. Introduced in 1980, the Quattro was based on the outwardly similar Coupé's bodyshell but used a different floorpan to accommodate its four-wheel-drive transmission and independent rear suspension. The engine was a development of the five-cylinder, 2.1-litre, single-overhead-camshaft unit first seen in the 200 saloon, equipped with a KKK turbocharger and producing 200bhp in road trim, considerably more being available in competition tune. Phenomenally fast and sure-footed on the road, the Quattro excelled in international rallying, winning the Manufacturers' Championship for Audi in 1982 and 1984 and the Driver's Championship in '83 and '84, but its enduring legacy would be the demonstration of four-wheel drive's advantages for passenger cars. Since then Audi has gone on to apply the quattro 4WD system to many other models but only the original (or 'Ur') version is spelled with a capital 'Q'.
This beautiful Ur-Quattro has recently been subject of some substantial restoration works including a re-spray in the original colour of dark green metallic in 2010, while the interior features the correct multi-tone brown velour upholstery. Having resided in the dry and sunny climate of the South of France, it is described by the owner as in generally good condition and comes with French export documents. A very interesting motor car for all 'Youngtimer' fans!

L'Audi Quattro à 4 roues motrices fit date en rallye dans les années 1980.Le Coupé Quattro original (version « Ur ») est le seul qui s'écrit avec un « Q » majuscule. Ce superbe Ur-Quattro a fait récemment l'objet de substantiels travaux de restauration avec peinture neuve dans la teinte d'origine (vert métal foncé) en 2010, l'intérieur en velours conservant ses tons brun corrects. Conservé au sec et au chaud dans le midi de la France, il est présenté en bon état général et accompagné de ses documents d'exportation français. Une valeur sûre parmi les « youngtimers ».
