1983 Audi 5000S

There seems to be a lot of mint condition Audis from the 1980s coming out of the woodwork. This clean 5000S for sale in California may not be as drool worthy as the 4000S Quattro we posted last week, but this is just one of those cars you never see well preserved. Sure, it’s an automatic and might have an air of anonymity with the metallic brown paintwork, but it builds a bridge between where Audi was in the 1970s and where it was about to go during the rest of the 1980s.

Year: 1983
Model: 5000S
Engine: 2.1 liter inline-5
Transmission: 3-speed automatic
Mileage: 57,436 miles
Price: No reserve auction

To be honest, the bidding on this 5000S is much stronger than I would have first suspected. Someone must really want this car. It seems there’s international interest in this vehicle so that could always be driving the frenzy. The automatic transmission is the major detriment here, as they hampered performance much more than the self-shifting gearboxes of today. So few C2 5000 models exist in this kind of condition that it is hard to place a value on it. I’d guess the best ones might reach around $4,000 to $5,000, so with this car, we’ll probably reach new heights.

    My Dad had a 1982 5000 Turbo when I was about 17 or 18 years old. It was just a fantastic car.

    I just purchased this car last night, and it will have a new home in Houston TX. I had a 1981 when I was in college, and it was by far my favorite car, it was a diesel, and sold it with 265,000 miles on it. I hope this car will be as durable. I think the 78-83, 5000 was the most handsome car Audi has ever made. I wish they were still as understated today.

    This was my first car, same model, color, interior in similar perfect condition, garaged in NYC. I loooooooved driving it. When I sold it to a client who bought it for his house keeper it was dead in 6 months. (Nobody told her to check the oil.)
