1995 Audi RS2 Avant

In the high performance, exclusive world of Audi’s RS models, most enthusiasts believe they never got it quite as right as they did with the original model. Sure, the RS4s, RS6s, RS5s and TTRSs are impressive, fast and luxurious. They’ll all decimate the roads on the way to your destination, with little regard for supposedly faster marque’s badges. But there was something that was extra special and just a bit more magical about the original RS2; the first of the super wagons, the splashes of red and RS blue were like a poison dart frog – a warning to the rest of the big boys that this little wagon meant business. Packed with a special 311 horsepower Porsche-messaged version of the venerable 20 valve turbocharged inline-5, the RS2 was very special indeed. Power made it to the ground through all four wheels mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with Brembo brakes and Porsche wheels; the small chassis Audi could break 5 seconds in a 0-60 sprint and was good for over 160 m.p.h. making it one of the fastest road cars in the 1990s. About 3,000 of these cars were made, making them not quite as rare as one would expect given how infrequently we see them for sale – but there’s a stunning low mile example today on VW Vortex:

Since the last one that I sold was seen by its new owner on here I figured it was worth it for me to advertise this one here as well!

Asking price is 56 000$

You want more info or more detailed pictures just ask! PM or Phone usually works best (819-329-3443). I believe this is the lowest kms RS2 offered for sale at the moment and maybe beside the one sitting at the Ingolstadt Audi Museum maybe the lowest kms Audi RS2 there is out there.

Low miles, the right color combination and a restoration make this one of the best RS2s for sale in the world. The claim that it’s the best outside of the factory might be a bit of an exaggeration but it certainly looks impressive. It is certainly one of the lowest mileage RS2s I’ve seen for sale in a long time, but that makes me wonder a bit why it needed so much restoration. I don’t think that the color-matched roof box does the car any favors, but I suppose it’s pretty neat to have. Still, were this car mine it’d quickly be off the roof. Given the car’s provenance, it’s hard to argue with the asking price of $56,000 – that puts it into the price bracket of some of the more desirable German cars, which is honestly where it belongs. If I’m honest, I think I’d probably prefer to save $45,000 and buy a similar RS Blue S6+ Avant from Germany and have it shipped over; but if you want an RS model, this is one of the best available.

  1. Gorgeous car, one I’d like to at least drive someday. There’s nothing like the sound of that blown 5-cyl mill.

  2. I know both, the car and the owner. Owner is a stand up guy with plenty of RS2 experience, he had a volcano black one for sale couple of years ago. He is a stickler for perfection hence the extensive list of parts that most people would not bother to replace. Car is trully like new! If I win the lottery in and its still for sale consider it mine. 😉

  3. How much less would this be worth after the 25 year importation rule applies to these in 5 years?

  4. Jason, I doubt they’ll go down much in value. They’re already considered legendary and with the late 80s/early 90s cars starting to take back off, in 5 years 50 grand might seem like a good deal for one.

  5. You’re probably right – the appreciation in value will likely outpace the increase in supply of these stateside in a few years. Good find as always, btw…

  6. The RS2 is my favorite of all.

  7. A year to restore? Is he even gonna break even at that price?

  8. One of the two Audis that gets me excited and probably the only one I would purchase.
