SUMMARY

Documented as the last 20V, RHD, Ur-Quattro Coupé to leave the factory and with under 10,000 miles, remarkable.

DESCRIPTION

  • Very late production car and believed to be the last car ever
  • 20-valve RR, 2226cc, 217bhp and 143mph
  • Superbly presented in Pearlescent White with a mid-grey, full-leather interior
  • Two keepers from new, the first for 17 years and the latter, our client, for more than 13
  • 9,654 miles indicated, warranted by our vendor
  • Documented full service history up to 2008 and remained in a Carcoon since (regularly started with fuel changes). Long MOT
  • The value of 20-valve Quattros has been increasing exponentially and with "last car ever" status, this may well prove a wise investment

The Audi Quattro may not have been the first 4wd production car (that honour belongs to the 1966 Jensen Interceptor FF), but its place in history is assured. Thanks in no small part to its enormous rallying success, the Quattro popularized all-wheel drive, and is now regarded as one of the most influential and important sports cars of the 1980s.

The brainchild of Jörg Bensinger, an Audi chassis engineer, development work was started in 1977. Three years later the finished product was released. Although the floor-pan had much in common with the 80 and the running gear was largely taken from an Audi 200, the Quattro used a manual centre differential lock (operated by levers next to the handbrake) to govern the 197bhp and 210lb ft power outputs delivered by the 2.1-litre in-line five cylinder turbocharged engine.

By the time this particular car arrived in 1990, the crude cable-operated 50:50 split differential had been replaced with a much more advanced Torsen (torque sensing) diff and the engine had been uprated with double overhead camshafts and a larger 2,226cc capacity, upping power to 217bhp.

The car we present here is documented as the last Audi Quattro to be built with a letter of confirmation of this fact from the supplying dealers, in reference to a confirmation from Audi AG in Germany. Finished in crisp Pearlescent White with Grey leather, it's been in the ownership of just two keepers from new, the first for 17 years and the latter, our client, for more than 13 yet still displays only 9,654 miles, warranted by our vendor.

Incredibly completely standard, it's still on the original Pirelli P700-Z tyres and with its original Blaupunkt radio/cassette player. It comes with it's original purchase invoice (£38,995), as well as four keys, the original dealer key-fobs and much more. No alarm or immobiliser were ever fitted in order to keep the car to standard.

With a documented full service history up to 2008, almost all with Audi, when acquired by our vendor, it has since been regularly started during his ownership with fuel changes etc. but having been part of a collection and living in a 'Carcoon', it's not been driven. It presents to sale with 12 months MOT.

Our car comes with a full Audi book pack, including it's service book, as well as the correspondence from Audi confirming it to be last 'Ur' built. The value of 20-valve Quattros has been increasing exponentially and this lovely example appears guided very sensibly, given its incredible condition, remarkable mileage and unrepeatable history.
