Auction Block: 1986 Audi Sport Quattro

Feb 27, 2020

Category: Rides

As the car that brought all-wheel drive to the rally circuit, Audi’s Quattro is both one of the most significant rally cars of all time and may be the German marque’s most important vehicle. And that bodes well for collectors, as this concourse-quality Sport edition from 1986 is headed to the Gooding & Co. auction block.

One of the original 10 cars imported to the USA to promote Audi’s participation in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, this absolutely exceptional 1986 Audio Sport Quattro is one of just 164 streel-legal versions ever made. This particular example also has been driven just 38,000 miles from new, went through an extensive 13-month restoration courtesy of Canepa, and (of course) boasts its original Baur-built fiberglass-aluminum-Kevlar body and turbocharged 2.1L engine. However, this automotive legend does come with a high price, as Gooding & Co. is anticipating the hammer to come down between $550,000 and $700,000.

Purchase: $550,000+
