CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1985 Audi 4000S Quattro on eBay

Hey guys,
Actually I would like to sell my Audi 4000 S 1985. Don´t be confused by ebay the eBay title. The Audi 4000s is the US version of the European Audi 80. So the car, that is sold here is the American Audi 4000s.

Some hard facts:
• Brand and model: Audi Quattro 4000s
• Year: 1985
• Mileage: only 52 k
• Color: classical white
• Engine: 5-cylinder with 115 hp @ 5500 rpm
• Rims: original Audi 14′ aluminum rims
• Tires: tires has been changed 1000 miles ago
• VIN: WAUFB0853FA173483

• 4 wheel drive
• 5 gear stick-shift
• switchable differential lock
• Air conditioner
• power windows
• electrical heated front seats
• electrical adjustable side mirrors
• electrical sliding roof
• electrical healable rear windshield
• AM/FM Stereo
• emergency tire in trunk
• front and back wheel brakes

• I am the 2nd owner
• top interior conditions
• old school front seat slips (the seats underneath are in super condition)
• 2 small cracks in windshield but they are stable and don’t get bigger
• bump on left front door (hard to see)
• engine is running perfectly
• non-smoker car
• battery is 6 month old

Its overall condition I would describe for a car of this age is very good and completely original. Also it is very low on mileage. You won’t find this car in this good condition a second time. The car is located in Palo Alto, CA and can be looked every time after appointment. Please give me a call. 415 756 0327

The price of the UrQuattro is starting to creep up, so these mid-eighties Audi sedans with Quattro four-wheel drive are the next best thing for enthusiasts on a budget. About $4,500 to $6,000 seems to be the sweet spot for a 4000S Quattro in good condition these days. This is a no reserve auction, no there’s no telling what could happen if the right people are in the (virtual) room. If any one particular example will bring the money, I’m pretty sure it will be this one. I can’t remember when I’ve seen one with such little mileage. There may be a few bumps and bruises on the outside, but nothing to detract from the overall presentation and the interior is in exceptional shape. Yet again, I’ve come across another car I’d love to harbor if I had the space.

    This has got to be one of the last nice original 4000 QM’s these are awesome cars. Any AWD sedan with center and rear manual electronic diff locks is badass.

    They’re not electronic – they’re a vacuum operated mechanical system. Nice car, almost a mirror of my 86 that was my first car! Hard to find one without rust because of the nature of where they were run.

    Nice line up of Audi 4000s Quattros.

    Does anyone know or seen the 1985 Audi Cannonball Quattro by Brock Yates? What would it be worth today if in excellent condition? Only 12 were produced and I have one and it is still amazing. Just curious what it is worth.

    I just bought a 1985 Audi 4000s. It was purchased from original owner and has only 15,??? Original miles on it, the car looks brand new, however every rubber piece is dry rotted. I have been trying to find a good website to get parts. Any suggestions?

    Hi Walt,

    Sounds like a neat car! Rubber replacement options depend on what rubber you are trying to replace. The dealers still stock some parts, but I’d check places like Autohaus AZ (I got new door handle seals there recently) and German Parts and Restoration. Some pieces are NLA. If you’re really desperate, some pieces can be sourced directly from Audi tradition in Germany, but you need to brush up on your German 🙂

    Good luck!
