1985 Audi 4000S for sale

Here’s a model we haven’t posted too many of. It’s no speed-demon, but the 4000S is a handsome sedan full of 80s style. Family-owned since new, the son of the original owner has given it some modern Jersey style. The overdone stereo and powdercoated engine parts are a bit much, but reflect that this car has been loved, not abused. It’d be even better with the 4000CS’s 2.2L engine instead of the S’s 1.8, but if you’re looking for power, start thinking about engine swaps. 210k miles down but with tons of new parts and a beautiful exterior, this is a nice vintage Audi.

  1. Classic 80’s clean exterior design, classic 80’s outdated interior design.

    Without quattro, the only real draws here are the manual trans, silver paint, single family ownership history and no accidents.

    It would probably take most of the purchase price just to undo all the cheesy teen driver mods. Oh, that’s another significant negative – the fact that the son apparently spend a lot of time with this car.

  2. Those wheels are a travesty to put on that auto.

  3. The word you’re all looking for it “traveshamockery.”

  4. Waaaay too much $ spent to “customize” a first car, and too costly to undo, considering what the end result would be. Oh, and pass the eyebleach for those wheels. Terrible.

    Still, thanks for posting this just as an example of how first cars can go horribly wrong.

  5. Sorry, this thing is hideous. I’ll pay a few $k more and get that A8 with the six speed.

  6. Auction ended, 10 bids, $1300. Reserve not met.
