Classic Car Auctions says:

An original 'Ur' car in a rare colour and only two owners from new...


  • From the first year of full production. Personally imported from Gemany in 1981
  • Powered by the  legendary 2144cc, longitudinally-mounted, 5-cylinder, 10v SOHC engine
  • With a turbocharger and intercooler, this unit produced 197bhp and 210lb.ft, remarkable at the time
  • Finished in the rare colour of Helios Blue with a grey interior
  • Only two owners from new - our vendor and a personal friend. Dry stored for 12 plus years
  • Requires recommissioning and, we understand it was driving well prior to storage
  • When returned to form, this smart example would complement any collection
  • Quattro values continue to strengthen. Remarkably, offered at No Reserve
