Up for sale is my 1987.5 Special Build Edition Audi coupe GT. The special build was made mid-way through 87 and only 804 were produced. The SB came with a 2.3 liter 5 cylinder NG motor that produced 130 hp over the regular 110. The motor has a shrick 272 racing cam installed along with a custom exhaust which puts it up to about 145 hp. The car weighs an estimated 2390 lbs with the stock weight being 2500. This is the second rarest color with Black being the most rare. The car is about 95% done as a project. It runs and is street legal with PA inspection good through JAN 09. All that needs to be done is have the roll cage finished. The roll cage has been tacked into place so all the welds need to be finished and 3 of the rear bars need to be put in. All tubing needed to finish is included and no bends need to be made. The car has MOMO VTR 1000 seats that when new, were worth about 800 each. It has a new digital gauge cluster which is also rare. It comes with 3 sets of wheels: 15"
white speedlines currently on the car. The stock ronals and a set of plain black steel wheels. As far as suspension that car has Eibach springs and Bilstien shocks, front and rear sway bars, and a front strut brace. The decals on the car are original Audi HB rally team stickers from the days of group B. It has 232,XXX miles on it and still runs strong. As far as maintenance is concerned The oil has been changed ever 3k miles with Castrol GTX, I did a complete cooling system flush with new coolant some new hoses, new thermostat, new auxiliary radiator (also unique to the special build) New reverse light switch , oil changed under 500 miles ago, new coolant temperature sensor and plug. The transmission shifts smooth and all synchros are in good condition. The clutch was replaced under 3k miles ago with a sachs performance clutch kit which feels excellent. Brake pads and lines have all been replaced under 200 miles ago. I have seen these cars get into the 300 and 400 thousands with no
problems. The car pulls harder than any coupe ive driven and handles like a dream in the twisties. Very little work will need to be done to have this car tearing up the autocross circuit or back country road. This car is competitive with AutoX prepped GTIs and similar cars. ASKING $2,700 OBO I am also open to trades and flexible on price.
