The Audi Coupe Quattro is an interesting car because it’s rare, it’s cool, and it’s good looking. But it’s also sort of slow and parts can be difficult to find and are expensive. However, it’s also usually an affordable cool Audi to get and modify, such as the one currently on sale over at Bring-A-Trailer.
This specific 1991 Audi Coupe Quattro was modified to sort of embody the spirit of the Euro market-only Audi S2. Which means it wears a red wrap, sits on OZ wheels, has an S2 hood and front bumpers, and even has Euro market Hella headlights. It very much looks like an Audi S2 and it’s pretty cool.
Inside, its gray interior gets some modifications as well, such as Sparco racing seats and a very cool Sparco steering wheel.
Under the hood is a 2.3 liter 20-valve five-cylinder engine, which only make 164 horsepower when new. Admittedly, this car has an ECU tune but, on an old naturally-aspirated engine such as this one, that likely does very little. Still, the engine is paired with five-speed manual, Quattro all-wheel drive, and a locking rear differential. So it should be fun to drive, even without big horsepower.
The car isn’t exactly minty fresh, though. With 188,000 miles and quite a few modifications, this Audi Coupe Quattro could be troublesome for its next owner. That’s the price you need to be willing to pay to have such a car, though. Thankfully, it shouldn’t be too expensive to buy, as there are four days still left on the auction and the current bid is up to $5,150. Which means it shouldn’t go too much higher, considering what it is. Though, this market is crazy at the moment, so there’s no telling what someone might overspend on .
If you’re looking for a relatively inexpensive classic Audi, this one could be it, though.
