I have a rather simple dream garage. It consists of three cars. My current MINI Cooper S, a 1989 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Coupe and this car, an Audi RS2 Avant. Each car serves a different purpose, the MINI being the practical, cheap runabout, the Porsche serving my sports car needs, and the Audi being a bit of a jack of all trades. Sure, there’s a bunch of other cars I’d love to own, but these three are at the core of everything I hold sacred in the automotive world. But amongst those three, the Audi is just something much more. All three cars are fast enough in their own right, but the Audi throws space and all-weather capability into the equation. Sadly, we have another few years to go before these original RS cars are legal in the US, but I can still admire them from afar, like this example for sale in

The one drawback for many is that this RS2 happens to be right hand drive. Barring that, there’s a lot to like about this car, especially the uncommon shade of green. With a full history and one owner, the price seems to be on par with other RS2s across the pond, which seem to be pulling in the low to mid $20,000 USD range. When they start arriving stateside in a few years, they’ll no doubt be a bit more pricey given shipping and importation costs. However, if you find a good one now, it may be worth pulling the trigger and getting ahead of that curve.
