1983 Audi Quattro

This post is in our archives. Links in this post may have been updated to point to similar cars available to bid on eBay.

Considering what it takes to be called a supercar these days, it’s somewhat amazing that in the early 1980s the Audi Quattro sparked such a revolution. After all, the boxflared wonder arrived in the U.S. costing about the same as a Porsche 911 but sporting only 160 horsepower. Factor in the relatively heavy for then (though admittedly light by today’s standards) 3,000 lb curb weight, and the Quattro was anything but high performance by the standards we consider today. But a revolution in performance it was, as it allowed you to push the car hard in any condition with confidence. Recently I watched the old Motorweek clip on the Quattro; performance was about what you’d expect from the numbers presented above and is probably on par with a base Honda Civic these days. But still the reviewers raved about the performance of the luxury coupe, and though few sold on these shores they’ve always enjoyed a cult following which today is growing into a greater appreciation:

The values of these cars are going up for sure, as many have been snapped up by European customers who can’t find them in the homeland. This example overall presents pretty well and in original form, though the paintwork is suspect considering the amount of rust that’s popped through the windshield frame. Inside the chocolate leather overall looks presentable minus the driver’s bolster which is quite worn, bu the cracked dash looks very tired. Only a few years ago, this would have been a car that struggled to meet high single digits in price, but the opening bid is a lofty $20,000. That will currently buy you this car, but I think based upon what’s presented that may be a little ambitious. There’s going to have to be some serious going-over for more rust to confirm the value and without a complete restoration this is more of a driver than show car. But it’s fairly rare to find one at all, given that only 240 1983s were sold here.
