For a car that sold in such limited numbers in the US, it’s impressive the impact the Audi Coupe Quattro had on the future of Audi and the automotive landscape in this country in general. This was the first car that took advantage of the revamped rules in World Rallying allowing four-wheel drive in competition vehicles. And to this day, WRC has never looked back. Rear-drive became a thing of the past. Today, many ordinary street vehicles these days offer all-wheel drive as an option, particularly on luxury vehicles. Whenever I go to the Mercedes-Benz dealer, it seems there are more 4-matic C class sedans on the lot than your standard rear-drive version. Such was the wide ranging impact of this car over time. It surely wasn’t the first passenger car to feature four-wheel drive, but it certainly was the one to popularize the idea.
This Coupe Quattro for sale in Saint Louis is a fantastic looking piece of Audi history and represents a neat collectors piece for WRC buffs.

While this Ur Quattro is not exactly original to its core, I am a big fan of the BBS wheels. They aren’t too oversized as some wheels you see people slap on modern classics these days. Driver quality Quattros in good condition can be had for around $13,000 to $17,000 these days, with mint condition, lower mileage examples fetching around $20,000 and a little bit upwards of that. I am curious about the aftermarket gauges and exhaust, as it leads me to wonder whether there are other modifications lurking elsewhere. Still, with so few of these on the road, this one, based on cosmetics alone, looks like its worth a go.
