1995 Audi S6 Avant Euro-Spec

It used to be a bit unusual to see 90s-era European-specification cars come this way. But with the advent of the internet and 25-year-old cars being relatively cheap in other areas of the world, coupled with a current soaring market in the US and nostalgia for easier (they weren’t, but it’s okay to think they were) times, it’s less unusual to see Euro-only models for sale stateside. That’s not the case today; this S6 Avant was available here in nearly identical spec. However, there are a few things interesting on this one and it’s worth taking a look:

So there were some really cool color options and unique engine configurations available in Europe; you could get two different V8s, a six-speed manual, and an automatic, among some other nice items. This has none of those things, and in fact is a relative stripper. That’s where it becomes interesting – no sunroof, no roof racks, no heated seats, no radio, manual seats – this was about as low-spec as you could get one, it would seem. And that makes it pretty neat, overall! It’s also in good condition and has some recent maintenance done, plus the European-specification lights and slim bumpers really do lighten up the look of the C4 slightly. Bids so far are over $12,000 – no surprise there – and it’ll be interesting to see if this one sells, and what for. There’s a lot of heavy lifting done on a low-spec Euro model here, and that makes this a fairly unique opportunity.

  1. Having dealt with these cars; No sunroof is a huge bonus, the lack of seaters on the other hand(although failure prone, like the sunroof), is a huge bummer, they were phenomenal in these cars.

    @Carter
    The standard Audi 100 steering wheel is peculiar, US counterpart would have the 3-spoke sport wheel standard. Was that an option in Europe?

  2. @krauthammer The build sticker here is crucial, agree.

  3. @Krauthammer I’ve seen that steering wheel on other Euro S6’s. (94/95)

  4. I’m not seeing anything particularly exciting over a US model, though it looks to be in nice shape. Pretty easy to add the Euro bits to a US car, BTDT. An S6+ with a V8, then maybe.

  5. @Krauthammer – the S6 here had the three spoke, but earlier S4s had the four spoke like this. Not sure about all Euro models and it could have been replaced, but it also wouldn’t surprise me if it was stock and an option to upgrade to the three spoke.

    I respectfully disagree. Those factory euro bumpers, headlights, taillights, etc. are unobtanium now. They are worth as much combined as a clean sorted NAS wagon, if not more. The E-code headlights are far better than NAS/DOT trash of the period. The low profile bumpers are a massive aesthetic improvement.

    But I owned 2 of these cars(sedans) so I am biased. C4S6+ is my unicorn as well.
