Audi’s priorities in the mid 1990s in regards to the U.S. market shifted, as they concentrated their efforts on reestablishing any semblance of market share with what would prove to be the very successful A4. The A4 itself was evolutionary rather than revolutionary, as it incorporated most of its technology from the existing platforms. Similarly, Audi backed away from its venerable turbocharged inline-5 platform; a new V6 had become the go-to option choice in both B4 and C4 platforms in 1992. It was far from sporty, but the combination of moderate V6 power, updated looks with the 1995 refresh of the chassis and legendary build quality resulted in what I consider the most Mercedes-Benz like car Audi built. THe A6 2.8 quattro was luxurious in a Spartan way; just enough power options, but not tech-heavy. It was quiet, comfortable, handsome and capable in a time when it still held the monopoly on all-wheel drive wagons – remember, this was the time when the widespread popularity of SUVs was still a generation away. You could even squeeze seven passengers in to a A6 thanks to the optional rear bench seat. They became vogue with the ski-set, and as a result few appear in the condition of today’s example:

Though you could opt for a 5-speed manual in the A6 quattro, nearly all are equipped with the dull but dependable 4-speed automatic. Options were fairly limited, too, and most came pretty fully equipped. This car has the optional Cold Weather Package including heated seats and headlight washers, along with optional sunroof and power leather seats – all pretty standard for the A6 quattros of this vintage. The 3rd row seat is a desirable option for those with larger families, too. Pairing the Emerald Green Mica paint with platinum leather was a bit more unusual, as typically we would see Ecru inside but that means the interior looks better than the generally worn appearance of the lighter shade. All around this car appears to be in top condition and commensurate with its low mileage. Bidding has recognized this rare opportunity, too. While the Buy It Now of nearly $10,000 seems pretty staggering, that hasn’t stopped a light bidding war to reach past $5,600. However, that’s about where I’d estimate the ceiling on this car to be for most rather than double that amount. Towards $10,000, you enter a different realm – suddenly, the number of allroads, S6 Avants, 5 series Tourings and Mercedes-Benz Estates you could pick up is pretty staggering to contemplate and it’s hard to argue that this car is nicer than any of them, though it may be in better condition. But it’s so rare to see such a nice condition and original A6 quattro Avant that is was certainly worth the look, and if bought reasonably this car will make some Audi fan happy for some time to come.
