We Weren't Kidding: 1990 Audi Coupe – $2500


You thought our clever little line about EscortsForever’s rally gallery giving us Quattro Fever (aka H1-20V) was empty wordsmithing? Think again! One of the benefits of living in LA—aside from the police helicopters and wildfires—is a well-stocked Craigslist. One beautiful black UR-Quattro coming up! [Edit: Nevermind, we’re off our game today we’re merely talking about an Audi Coupe, not a true Quattro. Attach the stone of shame!]

That's <i>UR-Quattro</i> to you, mister
Just Kidding

Bam: $2500 OBO. The mileage is a little high, but that’s nothing Klaus, your local classic Audi mechanic can’t fix (for a wheelbarrow full of money). Even if you end up dropping thousands into it, $2500 is a decent starting point. From our seller:

Audi coupe quattro 20v with about 234,XXX miles. The car runs good, has a lot of extras and is all-wheel drive. 5spd 5 cylinder. Black on Black. I just got a new car so this one has to go, come check it out and make an offer.

You could be bombing over Angeles Crest all winter in style with one of these. Apparently scantily clad women will wash it for you, too [Update: even if it isn’t an UR-quattro].

Klaus fixes is, Heidi washes it

Orange County (close enough) Craigslist (while it lasts!).

    There’s pic of Ur-quattro and then there’s newer Audi Coupe for sale. Both nice looking. I suppose one needs tons of money for repairs if planning to buy 234000 mile rare Audi with 4wd. My friend had Audi 90 Quattro, basically the same car with 4 doors. Buying this car was costly mistake. As well he could have burned the money in bonfire.

      Crap. Totally my screwup. Just realized that’s a an Audi Coupe (with quattro AWD), not an actual UR-Quattro (as it says the lead pic’s from wikipedia b/c craigslist resolution is pathetic).
      Good catch, post is updated, epic fail on my behalf.

    Has anybody told Deartháir about this yet? If so, I expect he’s on a plane to LA already.

      Obviously not, because he’d be on a plane down to LA just to give me a whupin’ for the screwup I just did.
      Not the stonkin’ true UR, but still not a bad ride for $2500.

        Mr. Science, do I need to send you back to my Auction Adventure post for a refresher?

          That’s it.
          I’m sending myself home for the day.

            In your defense, at least this one is actually a COUPE.

    Ohhh, I read Orange County and I immediately thought NY, but when I clicked through- it was CA. I should of known, no good cheap cars usually last long enough in nature to be sold used in my state.

    umm… this car is practically next door to me…
    I am in Huntington and this car is one town over. (same town and zip as my office actually).
    Too bad my wife hates Audi… The ‘99.5 A4 I convinced her to buy a few years ago has sullied her on the brand for life.
    Also, Tim… post a pic of Jack’s UrQuattro and make it all better…

    If it’s not an ur-Quattro, I don’t know if I’d get an Audi Coupe. It’s just not sufficiently awesome over a 90 Quattro, or better yet, a nice 5000 (I miss the 80’s, despite barely remembering them).

      This UK based half done replica would be much more believable if it’s converted to LHD. I’m not 100% sure but surely original rally versions were made in Germany and LHD. But that’s not a big job to convert (probably) when you have stripped shell to work with.

    I love the Audi moneypit Coupe. I wouldn’t buy it, but still.

    For about a 15-20 year period with his job, my father would go through a car in 2-3 years. Get a decent car with 50-75k miles on it and drive it into the ground, putting about 50k miles/year on it. He got an Audi 5000 for a deal at the height of the unintended acceleration scare. Out of the dozen or so cars he went through in that time the Audi is the ONLY one he GAVE AWAY. It was a great car when it ran, but towards then end that wasn’t very often. Back in the 1980s there were about as many Audis around as BMWs and Mercedes. When was the last time you saw a 1980s/90s Audi on the road? They are a rare sight. I still see plenty of Mercedes and BMWs going strong 20+ years later.
    Audi has all the performance of a Volkswagen with the repair cost of a Porsche.

    Can someone send Mrs. engineerd out of town for about a week while I go and buy this? She’s an accountant, so maybe someone will have a filing emergency for their LLC? Anyone? Please?
