Back in January, I took a look at this European-specification 1995 Audi S6 Avant. So why is it back? Well, it’s now with a different seller, has different photos, and is now a no reserve auction. Strangely, the new photos also appear to be taken in Europe, but the car is claimed to be in Stamford, Connecticut now. Given that the US model I just looked at traded exactly where we expected in the high teens, and this one is currently under 10k. So, let’s take a look again!
Original text from January 2021:
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.
