Methinks it means 2C = 200 in the same way 4K = 4000 and 5K = 5000. The
letter is a muliplier based on the metric system, C = *100 and K = *1000.

However, you could also encounter "2Cq" (or 2CQ) and while that possibly
means a pair of coupe quattros, it's more likely meant to designate a  "200
quattro" model (e.g., 1Cq = "100 quattro" model)

I've seen that 2CQ abrieviation before, here and various places on the web.
Not sure why you'd do that; 200q is only one digit larger than 2Cq, and more
widely used.  Why abbreviate a 3 digit word to 2 digits?

(At my work, our "standard operating procedures" or SOPs says in reports we
abbreviate things if they're used more than once.  very silly, and more work
for our clients; I believe in plain non-technical language, without jargon,
where possible.  e.g., we say "Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH)" in a
report, and next time just say TPH, even if it is several pages between
references, and thus out of context.  Not that anyone here cares... but
that's one reason I put up the acronym list).
