Thanks go out to a good friend of mine involved withn the Volkswagen performance community for pointing this one out. The Audi 4000 has always been one of those cars, at least in my opinion, that blends into the woodwork, but done up right, can be a standout vehicle. This example, with its 2.2 engine, larger rims and tasty accessories fits that bill:
The seller states:
I am selling my 97% complete (it will be completed for the buyer) 4000 Turbo Quattro. The car was originally a Southern California car (NO rust) and during its life was owned by Intrax, where it was a test car for their suspension, which was completely replaced. About 18 months ago, it was purchased and brought to Michigan. The owner decided to swap out the original engine with an MC1 turbo engine from an Audi 200, however he moved to California (ironically), got engaged, and didn’t have the time or place to finish the car.
I bought the car last summer with the goal of turning it into my dedicated track car, but realized that its condition was too nice to strip the interior out and put in a roll cage. Additionally, I was convinced to replace the prohibitive CIS with Megasquirt EFI in order to achieve much better engine performance. I have been told that this car should put out in the neighboorhood of 250-300 HP, in a 2,800 pound car, which should be as much fun to drive as my Stage 3 S4.
The interior has been replaced with Recaro seats from a VW GLI as well as a MOMO steering wheel and shifter, which gives the car very nice charachter.
The seller is asking interested parties to contact him via email. NADA is pegging values on 1986 4000 quattros around $3,800 at the high end. Given the conditions and mods, the seller may be able to get closer to $5k for this, with $4,000 to $4,500 as a more probable range.
