1983 Audi Ur Quattro

One of my all time favorites, the original Audi Quattro, was one of the most technologically advanced cars of its time. One of UR Quattro’s the most significant contributions, was the addition of permenant all wheel drive, ultimately making “Quattro” a household term. The first sports car with permanent all-wheel drive, the rally quattros rewrote the book to both road going cars, and more notably motorsports. Because of the URQ, all World Rally Championship cars are four-wheel drive, and so the Audi Quattro legend was born.

This beautiful Gobi Beige UR Quattro for sale outside Chicago is a well kept example of Rally car history.

Owning a legend isn’t cheap these days and the ’80s cars are starting to go through the roof.  While the URQ isn’t in the stratosphere like the E30 M3, it’s arguably just as significant in motorsports and should eventually catch up to the M3 in the price category.

At $19,000 this car is priced just a tick above where it should be as a solid driver. With a little haggling, this car could be had right where it should be, in the $16,500 to $17,000 range.
