Great-Grandfather – 1995 Audi S6

May 24, 2015

It’s not often a car from the high-tech nineties, whose original sale price was well into the five figures, appears here, but sometimes a chance is too good to pass up. Imagine picking up a contemporary of BMW’s M5, or an AMG Mercedes, in apparently good condition for the kind of money you’d spend on a driver MGB. And yes, a driver MGB certainly has many virtues, but there’s also a lot of fun in piloting a 230hp turbocharged inline 5 with all-wheel-drive and fairly direct lineage to the original Quattro. Check out this 1995 Audi S6 for sale for $4000 in Portland, OR.

Two or Four? – 1981 Audi 4000 5+5 and 1984 Audi 4000S Quattro

April 29, 2015

It’s pretty unusual with som eof the oddball cars featured here that you can have anythin gclose to the choice that you could get at the dealer’s 30 years ago. But in this special feature, you get the choice – 2 or 4 driven wheels? 2 or 4 doors? What you have to put up with is the semi-famous Audi 5 cylinder with a 5-speed manual transmission, but that shouldn’t be too much of a burden. To get things started, check out this 1981 Audi 4000 5+5 for sale for $2500 in Oregon City, OR.

Due – 1984 Audi GT Coupe

April 16, 2015

It’s funny, in a way, to name a car after a number. There are definitely other manufacturers who have done it, and many manufacturers have numerical model designations that follow a definite logic, but but if you think of a certain Audi coupe with all-wheel-drive and a turbocharged five-cylinder, would you call it the “Audi 4”? Following this admittedly thin premise, let’s take a look at the 4’s cheaper sibling, the “2”, or in Auditalian, the “Due”. Check out this 1984 Audi GT Coupe for sale for $2800 somewhere west of Portland, OR.
