How much would you pay for an Audi Coupe quattro. The cars are rare, but not that hard to find in varying levels stages of being worn out. If you’re lucky you’ll find a well-kept example or some sort of S2 or RS 2 swap. But what about a pristine one?

Back in 1991 Audi was getting ready to re-set the technological bar for aluminum structures. A prototype looking a lot like an Audi 200 was the picture of stealth in Ingolstadt, going unnoticed by the press as it was driven by engineers who were in on the secret.

We need to do a little more research to determine the time and the place, but #ThrowbackThursday seemed like excuse enough to run it on the site.

These were the days before the legendary quattro, and the car appears sponsored by Audi tuning firm Abt.
