1990 Audi Coupe Quattro

509

It’s been a few months since we posted the rare Ginster Yellow Coupe Quattro. That’s indicative of the market; coming by clean and well sorted Coupe Quattros or 90 20V Quattros is extraordinarily hard. Already rare cars to begin with, unmolested and clean examples are as rare as the proverbial hen’s tooth. Those that are unmolested are usually pushing 200,000 miles or in need of serious repair. However, once in a while a clean example pops up, as this sharp Pearlesant White with grey leather example proves today:

This is the cleanest audi coupe that I have ever seen. It has new bbs 17″ wheel with new tires, (original speedline wheels included). This car is an early production model which has the tubular header. The car has many new parts including a new fuel pump and a new water pump. This car is also for sale locally. Please don’t hesitate to call with any questions, I can be reached at 908-685-2671 Tom

I’ll start off with the likes; like a big, all-wheel drive GTi, these cars are fun to drive. Though not seriously quick in stock form, they’re also not hugely slow, especially once on the move. Yes, you need to rev the 7A 20V to get the car to shift, but that’s where it makes great noises, so enjoy your trip up the tach – which you can easily do for the next 100,000 miles or more given proper maintenance. The early models have the stainless tubular header which is a work of art though unfortunately covered by the necessary heat shield. Some recent maintenance ticks the right boxes, and while Pearlesant may not be everyone’s favorite it sure fits the character of the late 80s/early 90s Audis well.

Is there a downside? Well, I don’t really feel like the wheels fit the car particularly well despite being one of the biggest BBS fans in the world. I’d rather see the mentioned Speedline wheels clean and on there. Want an upgrade? Plenty are available, such as these Team Dynamics wheels currently on Ebay (click the picture to link to the auction):

Otherwise, I think the only drawback is the entry price; clean Coupe Quattros have maintained a strong market in the mid to high single digits; still, it’s a lot of car for that amount – most enthusiasts are now considering $10,000 the number for a clean E30 non-M3 to put this into perspective. Ditch the US spec diving board bumpers for some S2 units, throw in some Euro lights and an S2 wheel, and if you have to go crazy, drop a 20V turbo into it; you’ll slay E30 M3s in a drag race and with proper suspension components, you can keep up with them around turns, too – all for less than half the amount of a well sorted M3, and you’ll be in a much more rare car. That’s a win to me.

On Ebay right now are some parts to dress it up and make it quicker (click the item to take you to the auction):

1992 Audi S4

We’ve featured quite a few original Audi S6s recently, and they always get the attention they deserve, as one of the best performance bargains available in German motoring. It’s rare, though, to find their older brother S4s in good shape for sale. Launched in late 1991, the S4 took the platform of the 200 20V to another level, utilizing mostly the same drive train encompassed in a new aerodynamic and smart looking package. Like the 200 20V and V8 Quattro, the S4 featured flared fenders covering wide rubber, this time mounted to (gasp) 16″ wheels – Audi was still pushing the ride quality virtues of larger sidewall tires compared to those racey boys from Munich. While the S4 lacked the punch of either the M5 or 500E, it was a more complete package for many of it’s buyers, offering year round performance coupled with reasonable economy. Imagine the other firms going to smaller displacement turbocharged engines….cough, cough. Anyway, enough history, let’s look at one of the nicest S4s I’ve seen in quite a long time:

Desirable upgrades, recent maintenance, perfect color combination…does it get much better than this? With a claimed and usually believable 340 horsepower on tap, those pesky M5s and 500Es are nothing to worry about for this car. A/C is converted, most everything works (I can live without the toasty tush), and it just looks loved and taken care of. I have to admit, the front chin spoiler and wheels aren’t my favorite but are changeable without too much difficulty. Ideally I’d love to see a set of Euro-market 17″ Boleros on there, but they can be hard to come by these days.

Asking price for all of this is a scant $9,000 – as I’ve argued before, just look at what condition 500E or M5 that puts you into, and this car is certain to trump it. It may be on the high end for C4 S4s but with the work completed, service records, the lower miles, two sets of wheels and the desirable modifications, this car looks like a stellar deal to me.

1991 Audi 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant – REVISIT

There was a lot of interest in the black 91 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant Paul wrote up last month. Rightly so, since it was a classic color, in fantastic shape, and had lower miles. As one of our readers noted, it was no surprise that car disappeared in a hurry. Running across these 200s – especially in the more understated black or silver colors – is pretty tough, and finding any color in good shape is becoming a longer search. Today I found the same Lago Blue Metallic 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant for sale that we featured last year on GCFSB. The seller has lowered the price by $1,000.

509

Year: 1991
Model: 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant
Engine: 2.2 liter turbocharged inline-5
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 215,000 mi
Price: $5,700

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1991 Audi 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant on Audifans.com

1991 Audi 200 turbo quattro Avant – This is an amazing example of a 1 year only vehicle that is both fun and very practicle. 215,000 well kept miles. Just had the timing belt done, new brake accumulater (bomb), complete tuneup, new battery and new headliner. This is the first year of the 20 valve turbo motor and with the stage II chip and 3 inch custom exhaust it is running at just about 280hp. We get a constant 20mpg and have seen a best tank of freeway driving of 26mpg. The interior is in excellent shape with only some padding break down in the drivers side bolster of the drivers side sport seat. The factory sport seats are excellent and the seat adjustment memory panel functions great as do the original seat heaters. The only two things that aren�t operating well is that the sunroof motor is very slow and the airbag light is on due to the clockspring being worn. Other mods include euro lights with relays, H&R sport springs with Koni adjustable struts, upper strut bar for extra chassis stiffness, Porsche big red brake calipers in the front, 17� Ronal R-28 wheels with low mileage 215/50/17 Toyo Proxes4 tires. The wheels have some slight curbage from daily driving but present well. The traction of this car is absolutely amazing and this is one of the last cars with the center diff lock and the ABS switch to turn off the ABS. I also have plenty of high quality Mann and Mahle oil filters and the three volume set of factory manuals that will go with the sale. We have put 100,000 miles on this car with virtually no problems and still have a hard time giving it up since there is very little out there that compares (supposedly less than 200 of these 91 20 valve turbo wagons were brought into the states). This car will pull hard to over 130mph (not that I have done that) gets over 20mpg and can easily carry a family of 4 and a dog in complete luxury in any weather condition and all of that for only $5,700 obo.

I owned a Lago 200 10V Avant for a while, and it was a very capable highway cruiser that left me with lots of memories. As much as I liked that car, I always wished that it was one of the bigger brother 20V models. This car looks to be in good shape despite the high miles, and as you’ll hear from most who have owned one of these generation Audis, higher miles shouldn’t scare the prospective buyer away. Yes, there will be more repairs down the line – especially with the hydraulic system – but these are well built and solid cars. This particular car has some nice upgrades, such as relayed Euro lights and upgraded H&R suspension to help eliminate the float. While I miss the stock 15×7.5 BBSs (or even better on these cars, the optional Euro market 16″ BBSs), it is nice to see those Porsche boat anchors under the Ronal spokes. The sport seats are also the preferred option for most buyers; both my V8 and 200 had the comfort seats and they don’t offer much support in the corners, nor were they particularly comfortable.

$5,700 is a few thousand less than the black 200 Paul wrote up, but as the miles climb the market for these cars shrinks. It’ll likely be a die hard Audi fan that picks this car up, and my guess is that it will probably be in addition to another stablemate to take some of the daily driver heat away. Still, it looks way too nice to be a winter beater, but for less than $6,000 this car offers a great glimpse into German motoring with a healthy dose of practicality – plus, with dwindling numbers remaining you’re just about guaranteed to not see another pass you on the road.

1991 Audi 90 20V Quattro 2 for 1 project

Last month I wrote up a very clean Ginster Yellow 1990 Audi Coupe Quattro, a rare color on a rare car. However, if you thought that was rare, today’s Audi duo is nearly extinct – the Coupe Quattro’s twin 4 door brother, the 90 20V Quattro. The Coupe version outsold the sedan at a nearly three to one clip, and with massive depreciation and heavy use, few remain today. While it’s downright hard to find a one in good shape, I found a two-for-one deal driver/project on Ebay today. Winter is coming soon, and it’s time to start thinking about winter drivers and ice racing; few are better than the early Quattros in the snow:

Year: 1991
Model: 90 20V Quattro (x2)
Engine: 2.3 liter inline-5
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 159,605 and 161,514 mi

1991 Audi Sport 20V (Qty. 2)

Yes this auction is for two (2) Audi 90 Quattro 20V sedans. As you know, the 20V was brought into the United States for just 2 years (1990-1991)

These cars were imported as 2 door coupes and much rarer 4 door sedans as these are. Fewer than 500 sedans are believed to have been imported.

These are the 2nd gen Audi “Quattro’s” when AWD cars in the U.S. were pretty much unheard of. These 2.3L, 5 cyl, 164HP Quattro’s were developed for Rally racing in Europe at the time.They came with 5 speed transmissions, VDO gauges, differential lock and ABS, sport tuned suspensions, rear spoiler and BBS “mesh” wheels stock.

The main car is a great running vehicle. Bought from the original owner and sold new in Reno, NV where it has lived it’s rust free life. It drives/steers/stops fine and has that unmistakable exhaust growl of the rare Audi 5 cyl 20V engine. The interior needs cleaning and the seats been recovered in naugahyde. It has had an inexpensive repaint/respray as well. The front valance is cracked and needs repair. It has the optional Driver’s and Passenger’s power seats. However, Driver’s side seat motor is binding somewhere. It also has the Cold Weather Package-heated seats, heated windshield washer nozzles and heated door locks. Mileage-159,605

If that’s not enough, there is another Audi Sport 20V as a “parts car” or it would be possible to restore this one as well. It has an incredible cloth interior with little wear and would look nice in the other car. It has been a donor car for the last few years to the above car but is mainly complete. I consider it a parts car as there is a crack in the oil filter housing on the block and leaks oil. It might be able to be repaired by a competent welder. It also has no key and the steering wheel is locked making it pretty hard to steer as you can see by the odd angles of the wheels. We had this car loaded/unloaded by a forklift on a flatbed trailer. This car is NOT running at this time.

Mileage- 161,514

Thanks for looking and remember, one BID and this car will sell. Feel free to call/email with any questions. (775)843-7911

They say misery loves company, so if you’re ever concerned your broken Audi would need company, this one comes with a not-so-imaginary friend. That’s actually a nice bonus on a car like the 90 20V, which has some unique parts not found on other Audis, such as the brake assemblies. The running vehicle doesn’t seem to need much to be a reasonable daily driver, but the seller’s suggestion of restoring the parts car may be a bit of a reach. With older Audis having a spare of most items – especially electric – isn’t a bad plan. The parts car has the more desirable “quattro script” interior, but although labeled as “Sport” neither is the sport package of this car – those came with a unique version of the Coupe Quattro Speedline wheels. Although the repaint is a blue similar to Oceanic Blue Metallic, from the door sills it seems both of these cars were Lago Blue Metallic originally. I mention this only because Lago is famous for having clearcoat issues which may explain the repaint. With an opening bid at $2700 and no reserve, the seller is probably in the right ballpark for pricing – I would guess this duo would be worth no more than $4,000 in current state.

1995 Audi S6 Avant

If the Porsche 944 Turbo remains the best value among German sports coupes, the 1992 to 1995 Audi S4 and S6 are solidly the best value in the fast executive saloon market. Not only can you purchase a very clean example for well under $10,000 (hard to do with either an M5 or 500E), but you can also get that speed in wagon form. Long considered one of the classics produced by Ingolstadt, these cars were snapped up by enthusiasts when they were undervalued in the early 2000s. Despite an uptick in their value on the market, you can still see clean examples regularly trading for $5,000 – but the good examples are getting harder to find. Today we found a solid looking example of what is to many the most desirable of the breed, a 1995 Audi S6 Avant:

OVERVIEW

This auction is for a 1995 Audi s6 Avant with ~171,000 miles. I am the second owner and purchased the car from BMW of Mountain View (1st owner traded it in) in early 2009 with 149,000 miles on it. It’s been garaged for the entire time that I’ve owned it. I’ve changed the oil every 3,000 miles using OEM (Mann) filters and Mobile 1 full synthetic 15W-50 motor oil. It’s been power waxed and polished every 6 months or so and had Meguiar’s spray wax applied when washed in between those 6 month intervals. Techron fuel cleaner has been used in 1 year intervals. I have three keys (1) master key with separate electronic key fob (2) backup key identical to master key and (3) a valet key (doesn’t open the glove compartment). I have all original documentation and owner’s manual. The car has it’s original paint, it’s never been restored or touched up. As such, the front, hood, and headlights do have some pitting and rock chips. There are some parking lot dings (see pictures) and general use scuffs. Also, when I replaced the battery, I thought I had the radio code but I didn’t and so the radio is in safe mode and will need to be unlocked by Audi or replaced. The car has never been in an accident. See FULL DISCLOSURE section for additional details.

The car is fantastic, it’s been my baby for the last 4 years. It’s drives really well, the engine is smooth, and I’m going to miss it when it’s gone. My original intention was to fully restore this car, however, I just don’t have the time or space. It’s my second car and it spends a lot of it’s time in the garage (22,000 miles in 4 .5 years). I want someone with an appreciation for the original s cars to give it a good home.

FULL DISCLOSURE

In the interest of being honest and open, here is a list of things that I’ve noticed that will need work or are wrong with the vehicle:

· The front tires are wearing and will probably need to ne replaced within a year (rears look great though)

· As far as I know it’s the original clutch although you wouldn’t really know it by driving it. I’ve babied it, always rev matching on downshifts and never done any crazy launches or anything. Being 171k miles though I would say this would be a replacement item to consider when purchasing.

· There are three noticeable parking lot scratches/cracks/dings and a couple other minor paint issues that you can see from the pictures. (1) crack on the front bumper corner with (2) scratch on driver’s side front lower fender (3) ding above front driver’s side wheel well (4) rear roof spoiler paint is fading and has some visible defects (4) rear bumper corner trim piece paint is fading with visible defecting.

· It has the original paint and thus there is fair amount of pitting and rock chips in the front, hood and, headlights (see pictures).

· The radio works, however after replacing the battery it went into safe mode and I don’t have the radio code to unlock it. Fixes would be (1) call Audi and try to get a code from them (2) replace the radio head unit.

· The leather seats do show wear and the front driver seat is the most visible with some cracking in bolsters. The left torso bolster cracked open exposing the foam underneath and I’ve patched it with beige duct tape to stop further damage (see picture).

· It has not had the timing belt and water pump service. It’s been babied and garaged so the belt actually looks to be in really good condition but this was something that I had planned on doing soon and something you will want to factor in when purchasing. (I have the parts for this for DIYers).

· There is a very small coolant leak, it’s so small that it evaporates in the engine compartment as there are no drips on the floor. Just FYI.

· It didn’t come with any of the OEM floor mats for some reason. I have two rubber matts that fit decently from a first generation VW R32. There are no rear mats.

EXTRAS FOR DIY

· New water pump and timing belt

· 8 OEM Mann oil filters / 8 OEM crush washers for oil drain plug (replace after every oil change)

Sellers, take note; full disclosure is such as great thing to see. The seller could likely have gotten away without disclosing things like the small coolant leak, but the attention to detail is reassuring when looking at purchasing a car such as this. Most of the cars that we feature on GCFSB are out of the reach of your average buyer, but these cars offer an opportunity to get a reasonably reliable daily driver that’s exotic and fun to drive while practical. There are items that are harder and more expensive to replace, but this is a car that you really can DIY and keep running for hundreds of thousands of miles. This car has a leg up on most with a well documented history of repair.

Mileage is on the higher side for many “normal” cars, but still in the reasonable range for one of these limited production cars. The interior is what I would prefer in Ecru; while it shows more wear than the black typically, with all of those windows having a black interior can eliminate the need for seat heaters. Speaking of seats, this car also has the third row option, making it even more functional as a family hauler. The silicone hoses and coil pack replacements are necessary items for the long term, and Bilsteins help to firm up the floaty ride many older Audis suffer from. This may not be the dream ride that many who look through these posts hope for, but it is a solid driver that offers high performance and practicality on a level few cars can attain. Watching the prices of 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avants rise over the past few years, one has to wonder when the market will similarly take off for these S6s.

1990 Audi Coupe Quattro 20V

In 1989, Audi’s lineup in the U.S. was pretty flat. Although they had renamed both the B3 and C3 chassis to fall into line with the rest of the world nomenclature and the B3 was a “new” car, the performance of both chassis relative to their competitors was pretty poor. Indeed, Audi’s only claim to fame was that the retained the Quattro drive train option. In Europe, though, Audi released two brilliant engines that would find their way to the U.S. shores in 1990; the awesome all-aluminum 32V V8, and the 20 valve version of their venerable inline-5. While immediately everyone thinks of the turbocharged version, the normally aspirated 2.3 liter version, named the 7A, was a solid performer of its own. The 7A, like the 2.0 16V in Volkswagens, was only available in the U.S. in two cars; the 4 door 90 Quattro 20V and the new Coupe Quattro.

With scandals hurting Audi’s image and poor performance to price value compared to most of its rivals, both 20V versions sold slowly and were only available for two years. Still, the Coupe Quattros developed a cult following for their all-weather hatchback practicality. Because of that few remain in good condition, unlike this Ginster Yellow Coupe Quattro for sale today:

Very Rare 1990 Audi Coupe Quattro. Extremely Rare Early Build in Factory Ginster Yellow with Black interior. 6/89 build date. Carbon Fiber Drive-shaft and Bag O’ Snakes Stainless Steel Headers separate the early builds from the later builds after September or October they did away with both. as well the computer control switch is located on the dash and the later models have it on the wiper stalk.

Only 1730 of these came to the USA in 2 years, of which 1400 in 1990. Every Interior Light, Cluster Light, Everything Works. Cruise Control is the only thing that isnt working. The color combination makes this car 1 of only a few. The best part of this car is the care it has had and maintenance history which shows in the condition it is in today 24 years later.

1990 Audi Coupe Quattro Ginster Yellow, Black Leather interior. Winter Package which includes heated mirrors, door locks, headlight washers, and Heated Seats that work perfect. Rear Fog-light and Front Fog-lights, and Ski Bag inside the car. Power steering, brakes, windows, mirrors, locks, sunroof/moonroof, ABS. A/C that has been converted to r134a that needs a recharge. Factory Alarm still Works.

145k Miles of which I just put 3k miles on a road trip with it. did not burn or drip a drop of oil and the compression was done on this car with all cylinders either 170 or 175 which is amazing. H&R Sport Springs which are very firm with Boge Turbo Gas Struts. Valve Cover Powder Coated and new Gasket installed about 6k miles ago. Ja-Max Upper Strut Brace Stray Bar. 034 Short Shift Kit is as tight as any new car. 034 injector upgrade kit with adapter set which makes a huge difference on performance and gas mileage. I averaged 27.6mpg on this last road trip averaging 70+mph which is 3500 rpm and got this mileage. Imagine a 6th gear or any other 5sp tranny with a tall 5th gear and this car would get over 30mpg easy and perform.

I have had many of these coupes and this is by far the best one, tightest, drives tight and no shakes or ticks. Engine runs perfect, tight and zero ticks. Synthetic only. Also has the Euro Rear Lights and center tub. OEM RS2 Badge. Euro S2 Steering Wheel. Original Windshield, Original Quattro Floor Mats, Mint Leather interior. Cargo Cover still works as it should, no broken parts. Most are missing or broken. All interior lights work, cluster, door, trunk, gauges. Zero Rust anywhere. garaged and meticulously taken care of.

This car sold 2 years ago from Carrera Motors off the Showroom floor for 13k. That should tell you about the condition of the car. I have the receipt to show. Original Wheels will be sold with the car and they have $800 Michelin Pilot Alpina Studless Snow tires on them. This car will go anywher with these on there. The Wheels on the car do not go with the car unless I get full Price for the car. They are perfect condition Keskin 16″ Wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Z rated Tires. Not Cheap!

Without a doubt, Ginster Yellow Coupe Quattros are the most rare of an already rare breed. Reports vary on numbers, but figure less than 200 of these made it to the States. Couple that with one of the few remaining good condition Coupe Quattros that haven’t been snapped up for 20V Turbo conversions, and this is indeed a very rare sight. While for most cars, 144,000 miles wouldn’t be considered “low mileage”, the condition of this car seems to shrug that off. The owner has an extensive photo album available, documenting the low wear on the interior and exterior. The original Speedline alloys are included with the sale with mounted snow tires. They’re famously difficult to keep looking good and hard to properly refinish (ask me how), so it would be nice to see them in equally good shape as the car, but most owners seem to toss them in favor of larger stock.

There are a host of great upgrades with this car – the 034 Motorsports injectors are great replacements for the stock units which seldom function properly at this point, H&R springs and the Jamex stress bar are desirable to keep the original floaty ride in check, and the S2 wheel has a fantastic feel and just looks right. Most of the Ginster cars were early builds which includes the more desirable tubular header (dubbed the “Bag of snakes”) that is a work of art by itself. There is a solid community behind these cars that will both appreciate the condition of a mostly-stock yellow example and help the owner keep it running for many, many years and miles to come.

Now, the ask price – $8,750. Keeping in mind that the owner says at that price the car comes with both sets of wheels, you either get a few thousand dollars worth of wheels and tires with the package, or you could opt out and save a few dollars if they weren’t to your taste. Values on good condition Coupe Quattros seemed to spike a few years ago when people looking to make S2 clones were searching for the best possible chassis, but that trend has cooled and subsequently values have fallen a bit since then. Indeed, you can usually find a 20V Turbo equipped Coupe Quattro at this price point without too much difficulty. In that light, the price seems a little bit high if your goal is to make a 20V Turbo Quattro monster. However, when you factor in the wheels and the general condition of the car, along with the exclusivity of Ginster Yellow and the relative originality, I think the price is just about spot on. Most enthusiasts wouldn’t flinch at a clean original E30 325 in this price range, and the Coupe Quattro is equally deserving of that respect. Buy it and enjoy the ride knowing you’re not likely to see another one like this anywhere you drive.
