1986 Audi Coupe GT

Another week, another rare Audi from the same seller in the Pacific Northwest. This time, unlike the 4000 quattro that had been subjected to a series of questionable modifications, the Coupe GT featured today was well built between the late 1990s and early 2000s to compete in SCCA competition. Featuring most of the upgrades of the later 1987.5 “Special Build” GTs, this GT was a favorite of the 4000/GT crowd long before the current seller got his hands on it. Since those days of the original builder, not much appears to have changed except the deteriorating condition of the paint and the skyrocketing price:

Afternoon Accessories: OZ Racing 17×8 Magnesium wheels

I still remember well the first time I got to hold a magnesium wheel – I was at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut, and a bit of a joking and free-loving owner of a Pantera literally threw one – complete with steam-roller tire – towards me with the tagline “Here, catch!”. Grimacing in the impending pain I was about to experience as this dishwasher-box sized wheel lobbed at me came closer, I reached out and caught it, fearful that I would be on the hook for the wheel’s cost when I dropped it even though this joker wouldn’t be by my hospital bed for the multi-week recovery from my collapsed lungs and broken ribs. To my shock, I caught the wheel, and my tensed muscles experienced nearly no shock. It was comical how light the wheel was; something I wouldn’t experience again until I picked up a Formula One Ferrari wheel years later. Today, there is a set of ultra-rare OZ Racing wheels on Ebay for a very reasonable price:

1985 Audi Coupe GT with claimed 11,500 miles

Hot on the heels of the mint condition 1987 Graphite Metallic 4000 quattro and
1985 Alpine White 4000 quattro we featured over the past two weeks comes another pristine mid-80s Audi, this time a front wheel drive Coupe GT. Just like the 4000, the GT has a devoted following in the Audi community; a solid all-around package, it offers the original Quattro styling and most of the driving experience on a budget. This particular car is claimed to have covered a scarcely believable 400 miles per year – just enough to empty it’s gas tank! Looking splendid in Tornado Red over the classic Ronal R8 wheels, take a look at this GT:

1985 Audi GT .. Coupe
We have been a licensed Automobile Dealership in Philadelphia, PA. for the past thirteen years. We are primarily an Auto Wholesale Operation supplying other dealerships, and we are now listing select vehicles for sale to the public as well. I am the internet/wholesale manager and my name is Chris. Please feel free to call me with any questions at 215 669-6400.

We offer our online customers a full guarantee on the purchase of any of our vehicles. If you come here to inspect this vehicle and then decide for any reason that you don’t want it, you will be excused from purchasing it. The stated auction terms must be observed to maintain this guarantee.

This is an absolutely gorgeous 1985 Audi Coupe GT. These cars have become quite rare, especially in this kind of fantastic condition. There has been only one owner since new, and this Audi has 11,567 miles. You read that correctly – the odometer has six digits and has not turned over. Everything about this Audi indicates that it was meticulous treated, and was the pride and joy of the owner.

The original owner passed away, and left this car to his family who kept this car tucked away for many years before parting with it now. This Audi was purchased, registered and spent its entire life in Virginia. The complete vehicle history report can be found by clicking the “Vehicle History Link” above. The report shows an errant odometer recording in 1989 of 49,568 miles, rather than the correct mileage reading at the time was 4,956 miles and 8 tenths. The family assured us this was the case, and gave us the title for this car that was issued back then. The title has been transferred to us and the mileage reading is now exempt due to the age of this car.

The condition of this car as seen in the photos below is the way we received it. We have our own high-tech service facility on location, which performed a full inspection of the car, checked all of the equipment and road tested this Audi at length. I am not an Audi Coupe GT expert, so if you have any questions that you feel were not addressed, please feel free to contact me.

The 2.2L engine runs excellent. The 5-speed transmission shifts easily and the clutch engages smoothly with lots of grab. There is a complete set of Yokohama tires on this car showing most of their tread, and the brake pads are all in excellent condition as well. Every power item and feature in this Audi has been checked and tested, and everything is working including the air conditioning. The only modification to this car is the Pioneer stereo, which was installed many years ago.

The exterior of this Audi is in fabulous condition. The Red paint is super glossy over the entire body with nothing more than a few minor imperfections. The body is straight and there aren’t any dents, scratches or body rust. All of the exterior trim on this car is intact, tight and in excellent condition. Both of the bumpers are in excellent condition. There aren’t any cracks or damage on any of the exterior lights, lenses or glass. The alloy wheels are very clean, and undamaged.

The interior of this Coupe GT is in equally fantastic condition. All of the seats are in excellent condition. The carpeting is super clean and fluffy without any stains or damage. There aren’t any wear spots or wear damage in the interior, even on the driver side. There is not any UV damage on the top of the dash pad or the upper door panels, which is a testament to the fact that it has been stored out of the elements when not in use. The dash pad is perfect. All of the interior trim pieces, all buttons and switches and the dash are in just about perfect condition. The leather steering wheel does not show any wear at all. This was a non smoker owned vehicle. There aren’t any burn marks or odors of any kind inside this car

This is a very collectable car, but it is also a vehicle that I would not hesitate to jump in and drive anywhere. I can’t imagine that this Audi will last long, so you are welcome to call if interested.

Tornado Red may be the most recognizable shade on these GTs but it always looks great. The exterior of the car seems to support the mileage, but there have been concerns voiced over the legitimacy of the mileage on some of the fan pages due to the odometer sitting at “0000” and the errant reading showing on the vehicle report. Having owned a 1986 with a broken odometer in the same position, it’s understandable why this would be a concern. True, there appears to be more wear in the engine bay than the exterior would support. There are other oddities, too – small details such as all of the silver missing from the badges; this usually only occurs on higher-mile models, though if it were over-polished that might do it as well. The wheels also appear to have a bit more wear than I would expect on an 11,000 mile example – the paint is down to the undercoating between the spokes – something I saw on my 200,000 mile GT but not what I would expect on this one. The rings on the side aren’t correct, and obviously neither is the striping on the hood but I would guess both of those to be easily reversible.

Regardless of whether the 11,500 mile odometer is accurate, though, this GT is in rare-to-see condition even if it isn’t the most rare color combination. Anyone who has undertaken a repaint in Tornado Red will tell you how expensive the paint alone is. With no reserve, bidding has been strong and this coupe has already broken through $5,000 with still over a week left on the auction. The advertisement lists the original Buy It Now at $8,600, and I suspect the bidding will come close to or perhaps exceed that. While that may sound like a lot for a Coupe GT, you could easily spend a sizable portion of that amount alone trying to repaint a worse-condition GT. Like the 4000 Quattro, these classic Coupes are on their way up so get used to higher sales numbers in the not-too-distant future.


Afternoon Accessories: Audi 4000 Cassette holder

Just because it’s a rare accessory doesn’t mean it has to break the bank. In the case of this afternoon’s Audi 4000/GT cassette holder, it’s downright cheap. I know, I know, cassettes are so 1980s, but hey – so were the cars. If you own a mint condition 4000 or Coupe GT, this might be just the accessory you’re looking for to complete the look:

1986 Audi Coupe GT

It’s been a while since we’ve shown a Coupe GT – back a month or two ago, we had a pretty good string of rare Coupe GTs. Here’s another, and while it’s not the most desirable combination it’s sure a rare one. Why? Well, this car is an automatic Coupe GT – already a rarity, but then it also carries a digital dashboard. Normally reserved for the Commemorative Edition GTs and the 1987.5 “Special Builds”, the digital dash randomly found its way into other 1986 and 1987 models, this author’s included. It was a bit of a gimmick, but it’s a neat period piece and it’s the first non-CE, non-SB Audi Coupe GT automatic I’ve ever seen with the combination. Take a look at this great looking Tornado Red coupe:

86 Audi Coupe GT Tornado Red

Auto with currently 92,xxx mi everything works, from R12 A/C to cruise. Time machine interior near mint. Exterior is faded tornado red paint with a single surface rust spot on rear C pillar. Tires are Hakka all seasons M&S, with over 2/3 tread. Exhaust recently replaced. This Coupe GT shifts perfectly, and drives really well. It starts right up everytime I jump in it and hit the key, and you can drive it anywhere. It’s very quiet and peppy for all it’s 110 ponies.

Included in purchase are a bunch of receipts that track the history since new (appears to be a vw exec car purchased and delivered in detroit area, then the second owner bought it was from Chicagoland, and the third owner was a 20 year Audi mechanic whom I purchased it from this year). This car was very well documented in service and miles by the PO, and drives that way.


The digital dash flickers from time to time which is an issue for this model.
A/C works great but is a little noisy in operation.
A front axle just started popping when turning left.
Only spot of rust is on the rear C-pillar. No rust was found anywhere else.
Hey it’s an 86 not perfect, but very close!!!


Runs great and starts every day in one crank!
Windshield has no cracks.
All electronics work perfectly including the power antenna.
Tires have plenty of tread.
Automatic transmission shifts great!
Interior is near mint.
Car was maintained meticulously over the years by all owners.

Brand New Extra Parts:
Timing Belt Kit
Transmission Filter and Gasket

Want to see a video of the engine running or have a question just message me.

Thanks for viewing!

For all of the complaints about the automatics in mid-80s Audis, they’re not really a bad transmission and work reasonably well with the torquey power delivery of the inline-5 – certainly better than the 4 cylinder cars did. I actually owned the twin of this car but with analogue dash back in the 1990s; I’ll say that it was an enjoyable car to drive, even in the snow! This car is equipped with some meaty Nokian snow tires which will help the cause. Everything is claimed to work, and that’s a bonus, as is the crack-free windshield which is hard to replace. The Tornado Red paint is a little faded, there are a few rust spots, and the wheels look like they need a refinish, but overall this appears to be a pretty complete and well maintained GT. Some time detailing and polishing would really turn this into a looker. With everything working, lower miles and no reserve, this could be a fun winter driver for someone who doesn’t want to get their normal ride battered. I would expect it to hammer in the $2,000 – $3,000 range given the condition and automatic transmission.


Motorsport Monday Part 2: 1985 Audi Coupe GT Race Car


If this morning’s Quattro was a little too expensive and sacreligious for your taste, there’s a way that you, too can experience the 5 cylinder Coupe magic on a much more affordable basis. The Audi Coupe GT has long been a staple of SCCA’s ITB class; slightly heavier but better balanced and a tad more powerful than the VW GTis, a well built GT is nearly always a front runner in the class when well driven. Today’s example is no exception, as a top contender in the North East. I have a personal connection to this car; at one point, it was mine! I bought this car in pieces and got it mostly together though not running, but the current owner has taken it to the next level and made it a competitive car. Take a look at this rare Oceanic Blue Metallic 1985:

Unlike the Quattro but like most of our builds, you couldn’t replicate this car for the asking price. Though not the cheapest ITB car for sale, this car is well built and well sorted. The GT is a unique car for sure, and while on paper it shouldn’t work well as a track car, they’re a joy to drive, neutral when well set up and make you really enjoy the driving experience. Think of this as the E30 of Audis, and you’ll start to understand the magic. Looking at this car I wish I had finished the build I started, but building two GTs at the same time proved too costly and time consuming for me. Still, seeing it for sale makes me pull up my most recent bank statement to see if I can go grab it. This car is a steal, will be much cheaper to run than a Quattro rally car, and will give you plenty of thrills. Plus, most people will think it’s a Quattro anyway. Win/win!


1983 Audi Coupe GT

There was certainly a lot of interest in the 1986 Coupe GT Commemorative Edition I posted the other day. Though in rare to see color combinations and good overall condition, there were lots of questions about the car – especially at the advertised price. While we have featured many of the later aero-bumpered cars in both GT and 4000 form, we rarely get to see the original quad-headlight equipped versions come up for sale, especially in good condition. Today we have an exception to the rule with a clean 1983 Coupe GT in the desirable Mars Red often found on it’s bigger brother, the Quattro:


Year: 1983
Model: Coupe GT
Engine: 2.2 liter inline-5
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: N/A
Price: $2,950

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1983 Audi Coupe GT on Craigslist

I’m reluctantly selling my ’83 coupe, and hoping it will find a good home. Originally sold in Georgia, where it’s spent its whole life, I am the 3rd owner. It has a clear Georgia title and comes with the original owner’s manual and warranty booklet, and even the salesman’s business card who sold it!

The car is all original, except for the paint. It was resprayed a few years ago in the original Mars Red and is in great shape cosmetically, save for a few hail dings which a paintless dent guy could iron out easily. There are also a couple of minor rust spots starting, but the car looks awesome and gets a lot of attention. It runs and drives great with a brand new battery, timing belt and water pump, and all new vacuum lines.

The interior is beautiful. The cleanest interior you’ll ever expect to see in a 1980s car. The only negatives are a cracked dash (typical), worn/cracked leather on the top of the steering wheel, and the original vinyl driver’s seat has a split in one of the seams, so the car has seat covers that are black with red stitching, which look awesome in the red car. Everything works, even the original Audi radio, power windows, etc. It’s missing the rear wiper, radio antenna and the 4 rings emblem on the front grille, which you can find on eBay for about $15.

Will consider a trade for a motorcycle or a MK1 VW Rabbit GTI.

These cars often suffer neglect and early deaths as the result of rust creeping in; as a Southern car, it’s nice to not have to worry about that eventuality quite yet! Another issue that plagues the running condition of all CIS cars is vacuum leaks, so having new lines will certainly keep this car running well for a while. Though CIS is often reviled for the lack of tuning ability, the reality is that it’s a pretty good and dependable system when the vacuum leaks are sorted. Having fresh paint, clean original wheels, and a good mechanical history sets this car apart from the 1986 we featured the other day.

While I’m not the biggest fan of the earlier car look in U.S. spec with it’s diving board bumpers, much like the BMWs from the same period there are very slick European units which look stellar when fitted to these cars. The seats, too, can be sourced from other models, and a really industrious owner could swap to a later dash if they really wanted to do away with the cracks. Despite flaws on the interior, I think this car looks solid and is very well priced under $3,000. At that price, it doesn’t bother me at all that the miles aren’t disclosed. This is truly a good looking collectable classic that could be owned and run inexpensively but would always draw a crowd at any European show.


1987 Audi Coupe GT “Special Build”

Since I’ve come aboard GCFSB.com, I’ve really wanted to write up an Audi Coupe GT. In fact, long before I started writing for the blog, I wanted people to appreciate these cars more. Perhaps it’s because I’ve owned a long string of Coupes, or perhaps it’s because not many people even know what they are. I missed the white 87 Special Build Paul wrote up later in the month. I found this particularly disappointing since I love the Alpine White Coupe GTs, especially the CE 1986 and SB 1987.5 with their color matched trim. Still, I always keep my eye out for another, so I was greatly excited to see a clean Tornado Red 1985 pop up on eBay – only to see that Paul had grabbed that one too! Not dissuaded, I challenged him to a “Coupe-off” and found another white 1987 Coupe GT Special Build on eBay. Now, I’ve owned two Oceanic Blue coupes (85 and 86), a 85 Zermatt Silver, a 86 Tornado Red one, and my current Black 1986 GT, but I’ve still always wanted one of the triple Alpine White models, and even more so one of the last of the run, a Special Build 1987:

Year: 1987
Model: Coupe GT “Special Build”
Engine: 2.3 liter inline-5
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 200,720 mi
Price: Reserve auction, $2,000 opening bid

This is a survivor, pretty much original except for front, adjustable coil over springs with shocks and the Momo steering wheel but the original parts also come with. Runs great and looks distinctive! Of 1,600 Special Build editions built, about 850 were imported to the USA. They use some of the heavier 5000 drive train pieces like the inner CV joint and transmission. This is the successsor to the famous ralley cars that ran all wheel drive with a turbo 2.2 engine. Advantage here is much more reliable and economical. (You don’t really intend to ralley, do you?) The GT Coupes were voted among the best handeling cars of their time and still do pretty well with modern tires. Original Ronal 14″ wheels white powder coat makes them easy to keep clean.

The Special Build came in 3 colors with the trim including the spoiler and wheels matching body color; white, black and red. They have a heavy duty 5 speed transaxle, four wheel disc brakes, digital dash which incorporates a computer read out of mileage, range, etc. The 5 cylinder 2.3 ltr. NG high compression engine has multi-port electronic fuel injection and a larger throttle body that gives 130 H.P. from the factory. Audi started using this in the new of the lines in 1988. I regularly get 26 +mpg on the highway, but I tend to drive a little fast.

New are the battery and starter. The tires have less than 1000 miles on them and are performance 195x60x14″ BFG G Force Super Speed.tires. I installed new front wheel bearings and strut bearigns when I converted to the coil over front shocks a couple of years ago, so they are virtually new, too.

No obvious rust, dents or scratches; although he car is 25 years old and has been used so there are a few very minor chips and things. Original paint still shines. I had the front of the hood repaired to remove rust on teh front edge 3 years ago. Seats are fine, clean and with little apparent wear. Dash is not cracked. All instruments and controls work except for the right side window, the malfunction is in the counsel switch, I think. Check out Forutitude website for more information.


I’ll be honest – I think I’m over telling everyone what a great car the Coupe GT is. I’m tired of dragging out the old magazine reviews where it was one of the ten best cars and proclaimed the best handling GT car. I’m tired of telling people that it’s an affordable classic. I’m through explaining why a stock Coupe GT will beat a stock U.S. spec Quattro around a track without four wheel drive or a turbo. I’m not even sure why I’ve defended Audi’s honor, considering they barely acknowledge this car existed. From now on, I’m going to agree with all of the typical Audi commenters, so let me sum this up in a few sentences.

“It’s got 200,000 miles. Who would buy a car with 200,000 miles? It’s sure to break before you even buy it, and then repeatedly every time you look at it. All Audis are horrible. It will cost you the best part of a million dollars to own this car for anything more than a month. It’s sure to rust away to nothing by the end of the week. A good friend of mine once owned an Audi, and after it raped him and killed most of his family, it stole his identity and charged up a storm in Eastern Europe. This car would be great with a quattro conversion. What, no turbo? The RS4 is the only Audi worth looking at.”

Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, about this car. It’s one of the rarest of the Audi Coupe GTs. The 87 Special Build cars are indeed special and were the highest performance version of the car, and it’s more than capable of holding it’s own against most of its contemporaries. It appears to be in great shape and cared for, minus the one poorly placed political sticker that may be hiding something. I’ve owned enough of these to know the window “switch” issue could be diagnosed quickly – pop out the ashtray, wiggle the switches out of place and swap the switches to find out if it’s the harder to replace regulator, or perhaps the wires broke in the door. Otherwise, it looks like this car is ready to be a fun driver. I bought my current car with 192,000 miles on it 15 years ago, and it’s still running strong. Although there is little dealer and manufacturer support, there is an avid community to back these cars up and keep them running. Parts are reasonably cheap, they look good, get respectable mileage, and are fun to drive. But please, keep thinking they’re horrible and don’t buy them up, because I’ve seen what happened to the E30, and I’d like to be able to afford one of these Special Builds one day.


Watkins Glen Vintage Grand Prix GCFS 2012 Audi & Elva

Back from this outstanding event where many a German car are out being put through their paces on the track with my annual post of the German cars for sale that caught my eye. The car that most caught my eye this year, was unfortunatley not for sale. It was a stunning 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing that won the Concours d’Elegance for the weekend. What made it extra special though was this car was driven to the event from Massachusetts, we’re talking a journey of several hundred miles and hours. The owner, upon winning the top prize, took the microphone and remarked how concours cars should be used as they were intended and not trailered to events. This is a good reminder to those attending car shows that if you see a nice car and it has a few rock chips on the front, instead of being a dick and pointing them out, compliment the owner on actually having the balls to get the car on the road rather than using white gloved staff to drive the car the 10 yards off the enclosed trailer and onto the car show lawn. At the end of the weekend the Gullwing’s owner was hopping back into his multiple $100k car and driving back to MA, a journey I’m sure the car and driver both enjoyed. Click the images to see large photos of just how clean this car was despite the highway journey.

Ok on to my two picks for listings. This year the two I’ll post are at vastly different ends of the spectrum.

The first is a facelifted, late 1980s, Audi GT Coupe that needs some love.

Audi Coupe GT

These coupes have unique lines and are pretty hard to come by these days, despite their observed scarcity, other than the Quattro model, they remain quite affordable.

This one has relatively low mileage for the year, 86,000 miles, and a ask price of $1,200. It clearly shows some wear and tear issues. Fading logos, a few rust bubbles, worn interior, etc. I know we usually try to find finer automobiles than this, but this car looked lonely parked on the side of the road under the overcast sky, watching as millions of dollars worth of vintage street and race cars drove past. It has a manual and if it runs well it is certainly worth saving and I bet the seller can knock a couple hundred off the price. You can give your kid a pretty unique fun first car to work on with this on the cheap. A few hours of elbow grease and this car could be a lot prouder. You can see from the photos its not a bad 10 footer at all. I don’t want to post the seller’s phone number, but post a comment if you are interested and I’ll get it to you.


The other car for sale that I thought would be fun to list, it being a Grand Prix event and all, is this 1965 Elva Mk.VIIs racer.

1965 BMW powered Elva Mk.7s

The Elva 7s racers were tiny cars, barely coming up to the knee, and were powered by a range of under 2.0 liter engines. While Elva is a British car company, this race car is powered by a very German BMW engine and comes complete with a BMW badge out front. Some Elva cars, think Can-Am, were fitted with very much over 2.0 liter 500 horsepower V8s by McLaren, which must’ve been immensely scary to drive.

The car has eye catching looks, the covered headlights up front present a really nice smooth face. The looks maybe confused for a D type Jag or Porsche Spyder if you squint, but the Elva isn’t like either of those, though Porsche power was found in other Mk.7 Elvas.

This particular car is super fresh, it has a recent restoration in which everything has been gone over. Basically everything is new or rebuilt from the body to the chassis to the engine. Transmission is a Hewland unit which is loaded with new internals. The new parts on the car are too many to list. The owner also states that the car can handle a 6′ + driver thanks to some modifications.

The car is available through Lee Chapman Racing, http://www.leechapmanracing.com

Obviously this is going to run you a bit more than the Audi listed above, but I suspect it isn’t obscene. No price is given, but I’d bet we’re looking at something in the $150,000 range with it in its race ready condition. I’m not really sure, I haven’t seen to many Elva’s cross the block in my time.


As always I highly recommend a pilgrimage to Watkins Glen, the birth place of modern road racing in the U.S., to any gearhead and the annual vintage festival is a perfect time to make the trip.
