1991 Audi 200 20V quattro Avant

Update 12/26/20: This 200 20V quattro is back up with better photos!

By my account, I seem to have the market cornered on writing up Bamboo Metallic 1991 Audi 200 20V Avants. When today’s example popped up near me in Connecticut, I thought at first that it was the same as the last 200 20V Avant that I looked at in the Constitution State:

An easy mistake, given that 1) they were both in Connecticut b) they were the same color combination and both have Euro headlights and III) there were only 149 imported, so what are the odds?

But that wasn’t the only Bamboo Avant I’ve looked at:

Amazingly, that car also had European headlights, but there were enough differences to tell me that wasn’t today’s car either. So welcome to the third installment of my continuing series that I call ‘1991 Audi 200 20V quattro Avants in Bamboo over Travertine for sale‘. Surely it can’t go to a fourth episode?

Vehicle Details

Has relayed Euro lights. And an S line steering wheel. All stock otherwise.

Seriously, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Bamboo Metallic was a relatively common color on these. It is not. Out of the 149 originally imported here, I’d wager that Lago Blue Metallic, Pearlescent White, and black were the really ‘common’ colors to see on Avants. If you’d like a breakdown on what made the ’91 special, I went into more detail here – but you probably already know if you’re looking at a nearly 30-year-old Avant. Condition on this one isn’t horrible overall, but it’s also far from the best. Bids are already flying though, and so far over $5,000 has been pledged with the reserve unmet. Will it sell? I’d have to imagine this example is currently not worth more than say…$6,000…but I’m also not the one paying. Above that amount and I’d probably hold out for a better example, personally. But it’s not exactly like there are a plethora of options – especially in (I promise, despite what’s shown!) a rarely seen color.

  1. It says new headliner, but what is going on tin the back with the headline? Also, what’s wrong with the moon roof?

  2. I love this color on these. Not near enough photos to be bidding. Registration not showing renewed in 2020….Fuel filter 2007. Needs a lot of love.

  3. @Evan Great find! Two unicorns at the same time!
