1991 Audi 200 20V Quattro

If you walked up to a stranger on the street and said “would you buy a 1991 Audi with 227,000 miles for $6,000″, I’d guess nearly every response would be a hearty laugh. But then, if you asked the same question but instead of the Audi and $6,000 it was a 1970s Porsche and a million dollars, you’d probably get the same laugh. Car valuations are so difficult, because within them lies desirability, condition, and sometimes childhood dreams. I still remember the James Bond movie where the baddie-turned-goodie-but-still-baddie was whisked away from the border guards tucked in the back of a 1991 Audi 200 20V quattro. I was, at the time, a teenager and didn’t really have much of an idea what the 200 was at that point. When I finally bought my Audi, I understood a bit more – it was a luxury sedan with the heart of a World Rally champion, a car whose dual nature few could manage at the time. High speed Autobahn cruiser? Check. Quiet, civilized luxury car? Yes, that too. Spirited on back roads? That could be said about the 200, but so could it about the BMW M5. What set the Audi apart at that time was the combination of the turbocharged engine with the quattro all-wheel drive system, allowing this performance to occur in just about any condition. That made the quattro a ski-trip vehicle as well. With handsome looks, the lightly flared 200 was also a racer, competing in the North American IMSA series as doing quite well for such a large, production based car. While not quite the jack of all trades, one can appreciate what a special package the Audi 200 20V was, and still is:

Stunning 1991 Audi 200 Turbo Quattro 20v

A very rare car in exceptional condition

One of the very few 200 20V Quattro’s that were only sold in the USA for 1991 model year.

A straight well-kept car from the dry climate of the beautiful state of Texas. Of course, a clean and clear title and no accidents.

Carfax shows the car was still serviced at an Audi-Porsche dealer in TX until fall of 2013, at which time the owner traded the vehicle in.

Very clean inside and out – all of the leather, wood and carpets are like new. Loaded with features:

climate control with ice-cold AC, converted to R134a and working very well
push-button diff lock
heated leather power seats
sunroof
trip computer
BBS wheels

Pre-purchase viewings and test drives are welcome and encouraged, for serious buyers.

Thank You

This car was clearly owned by an enthusiast, as witnessed by the specialist “Blau Parts” badge up front. Condition belies the large amount of miles that have accrued, something that owners of these 200s would probably refer to as “just broken in”. The interior especially shows remarkably little wear, a testament to the quality materials and solid build of the Audis of this generation. Another tell-tale, the clearcoated BBS wheels, still shine when many have pitted and look ready to scrap. The question is, is it a $6,000 car? Probably that’s a bit steep but falls in line with an online-dealer. For the right person looking for this combination, $5,000 might be a stretch – but you get a lot of car for that $5,000, and it’s a classic at that. While these Audis may be full of character, it’s the type that leaves few people saying that they wouldn’t like to get into another.

    This thing is awesome. The wheels, flares, fog lights and great condition. Wow. Makes me fall in love with these older Audis all over again.

  2. Jayson says:

    Super neat car, been watching it since last weekend! Every time I look at it I contemplate the 3 hour drive to go check it out.. I also find myself wishing it a was an Avant.

  3. UrSDriver says:

    5K all day, non-sport seats and boring colors are the only let down, I doubt you could find an unmolested car of equal quality anywhere, people drove the wheels off these, myself included.

    Here is another stunning 200TQ20V for less.

    Love it! I hope it finds a good home. BTW, could you tell me what that chrome button does in front of the rear diff lock?

  5. Jayson says:

    urSDriver-ive been watching the one on Craig’s list as well, an even further drive, emailed the seller but he doesn’t have the time to get into the details of the car over email – he would only say that it was dealer maintained…

  6. Max says:

    The car that introduced me to Audis as a kid. I adore it.

  7. Carter says:

    Thanks everyone for the comments! John, that’s the passenger ejector seat actuator for James Bond.

    Very nice Audi when new. Today, unfortunately, not worth much…

  9. UrSDriver says:

    Audemars, it is unfortunate they have depreciated so much. The rarity, robustness, and performance of this one year only car are almost disregarded when it comes to value compared to other great cars from this era. I disagree that it was only nice when new, the drivetrains and body-work of these cars can be insanely long-lived if cared for, which it appers this one has been.

    So much to appreciate about this car that you can’t know till you drive and work on them!
