Auction Block: 1990 Audio Quattro Coupe

Oct 29, 2019

Category: Rides

Thanks to its inclusion of a revolutionary all-wheel-drive system, the Audio Quattro changed the world of rally car racing forever. And its historical significance can sometimes mean finding a road-ready example can be an almost herculean task. Thankfully, today, that’s not the case because this modified 1990 Audi Quattro coupe is headed to the auction block.

While the standard edition of this vehicle was plenty capable, this particular version has had some extensive work done to it by its previous owner to make it into an even better all-weather, all-terrain rally racer. For starters, it’s gotten an engine swap in favor of a 1.8L turbocharged inline four-cylinder complete with a 5-speed Tiptronic transmission taken from a B5 Audi A4. It’s also been kitted with a comprehensive lift kit, has a roof rack with an LED light rig, and boasts BF Goodrich all-terrain tires on factory Speedline wheels. As of this article, the current bid on this speedy off-road coupe is $8,500.

Purchase: $8,500+
