This slick ’85 Quattro is still available, now with much better photos and an asking price that dropped to $75,000.
For U.S. Quattro fans, â€™85 models are a bit special as they held numerous upgrades over the prior models. Like the rest of the Type 85/B2 lineup, those included revisions to the exterior, most notably the slanted grill and color matched spoiler, but also inside a new dashboard and revised seat fabric patterns. Like the â€™84s, wheels were 8â€³ Ronals, and the more reliable fuse box was also carried over with the upgrades.
A few unique colors were offered on the â€™85 up models, but since importation ended after one â€™86 made it here, all colors are a bit special. Unique too was the headlight treatment, which had chrome aero bezels to match the grill. A total of only 73 of these upgraded 85s (plus the one 86) made it to the U.S., and theyâ€™ve pretty much always been the most sought of the scant 664 original Quattros sold here. This particular â€™85 comes to market looking minty fresh in what appears to be Tornado Red.
