Back in July, I took a look at a pair of Audi 4000Ss, the easy-to-forget lightweight brother of the 4000 quattro and Coupe GT:
The S package actually rolled out the year before with the pre-facelift model, though, and Audi steadily increased the appeal with the Type 81 four-door with the GTI-sourced 1.8L engine, a close-ratio 5-speed, alloy wheels, and a chin spoiler. Although these cars didn’t have the visual appeal of the GT, the rally-inspired drivetrain of the quattro, or the thrum of the 5-pot, they were nonetheless attractive cars that were fun and economical – and it helped that they were also several grand cheaper than their more illustrious counterparts. Today’s example is probably one of the nicer ones left:

I’m not sure where the seller is getting “Custom” from, as there was no trim like that for ’84. There was a more desirable Limited Edition model, which was (in essence) a complete clone of the quattro without quattro – black trim, sport seats, 14″ Ronal wheels, and a rear spoiler. This isn’t one, and they’re quite hard to find. Still, it’s a nice example that appears to be largely original. At $9,500, though, it’s a strong ask – you’re into nice Coupe GT money at that point. But it’s neat to see one of these still floating around and in good condition, to boot!
