Re: 1985 Coupe GT (classic)
What future classic list is that? Dubious claim. Several years
ago a friend of mine was told by a dealer the same thing when he paid
well over invoice for a first year IROC Camaro. GM only made 44
bazillion of those. Beware of any "future classic" claim. The Coupe
GT was certainly exported in very few numbers. The GT was considered
ugly by most Europeans and was priced close enough to the 5K that Audi
wasn't too interested in manufacturing too many for export.
Comparatively speaking there were a lot fewer Coupes manufactured
than Corvairs for instance. There were a lot more produced than say
Triumph Stags. Based on numbers alone neither of those cars are worth
much as "classic" cars. I would think that if you had an '85 to '87
Quattro Coupe it might be something fairly unique. I'm not sure they
even exported those to the US during this period.
