Known by many as the Ur-Quattro (Ur being a German prefix
meaning “original”), the Audi Quattro Coupe is one of the
coolest and most significant road-going rally cars of all time.
When the car hit the scene in 1980 it was one of the first to
take advantage of freshened rules allowing competition rally
cars to utilize all-wheel-drive. Early skeptics doubted the
validity of using such technology in a sports car, but were
quickly proven wrong when Audi began racking up rally wins.
While the customer spec Quattro is undoubtedly tamer than its
fire-breathing racing brothers, it is by every account still an
involving drive. The turbocharged five-cylinder engine and five-
speed manual should make willing companions for those looking
for fun on the twisty bits. While the legendary Quattro system
should keep even enthusiastic drivers safely on the pavement.
This particular 1985 example on eBay Motors is in fine tune for
someone looking for a classic driver. With over 40,000 miles on
the clock the Audi hasn’t lived a sheltered life, but the car
seems to have been maintained to a high standard, with paint and
interior in almost showroom condition.
