Find of the Day: 1985 Audi Turbo Ur-Quattro Coupe

Barrett-Jackson has proclaimed 2016 the ‘Year of the Poster Car’, and while this particular Turbo Ur-Quattro Coupe won’t be offered this year in Scottsdale, it still is very much a product of that line of thinking.  One of just 664 brought to the United States, this relatively rare Turbo Ur-Quattro Coupe features everything that made us originally fall for the brand: Group-B inspired box-flares, quattro all-wheel-drive, and a turbocharged 5-cylinder engine.


Currently being offered as a Bring A Trailer auction, this particular example has covered just over 117,000 miles in its 30 years of existence.  As such, the interior appears to be well worn, although it does boast a crack-free dash and the original leather seats are in fairly good condition.  This ‘worn-yet-preserved’ theme extends to the exterior of the vehicle as well, with the seller noting that the car’s rust-free condition, and very few deviations from how it came from the factory.  The more detail oriented among us, however, will notice that European bumpers have been fitted as a subtle OEM+ touch during a previous respray.


At time of writing, this Turbo Ur-Quattro Coupe has been bid to a price of $20,000 with a little more than 3 days left in the auction.  Seeing what other poster cars of the era are currently bringing, we’d say that at its current price this car will be well bought.
