1997 Audi S6 quattro

A few weeks ago, we saw a nearly perfect low mile 1997 S6 quattro. I say nearly perfect, because it was in England and right hand drive. Well, today, we’ve got another one thanks to some searching by our reader John. This one appears to be in similar shape from what can be seen, and is another of the great rare color combinations we didn’t get much of in the U.S.. Finished in Cyclamen Pearl with S6+ wheels and that great two-tone Recaro interior, this right driver 1997 sure looks awesome to me:

While the last car was bone stock, this car has been lightly modded. With double the miles of the last car, it’s still well under half what even good condition C4 S4/S6 models in the U.S. turn up for sale with. The modifications are limited to the wheels, which look to be factory S6+ 17″ units that are some of my favorites, and the MTM chipset – good for a healthy bump to power. In both cases, I find those mods completely acceptable and the ones that I’d likely do. The rest appears original and in great condition. At half the asking price of the last model, it’s about as good of a value on one of the C4s you’ll see – assuming you don’t mind driving on the “correct” side of the road.

Thanks to John again for this great spot!

  1. $6,602 for a creampuff, low-mileage, ’97 S6 with that gorgeous interior?! That car would fetch $9-$10K in North America for the right buyer. Buy the car, drive around Ireland for a week or two, ship it back and enjoy. When you sell, you’d pay for some of that Ireland trip with the car’s increased value. If someone does this, please post about it so we can enjoy vicariously. 🙂
