> 1980-1991 Audi Quattro Coupe
> by the Auto Editors of Consumer
> The 1980-1991 Audi Quattro Coupe was the first series-production car with
> full-time all-wheel-drive since the rare late-'60s Jensen FF and was a
> prelude to many future AWD Audis. The series bowed in Europe during 1980
> in America two years later.
> The 1980-1991 Audi Quattro Coupe featured front suspension and sheetmetal
> shared with contemporary 80/90 sedans (called "4000" in the United States)
> but offered unique fastback coupe bodywork behind the cowl, plus a rear
> suspension with essentially duplicate front-end components (struts and
> springs plus fixed "steering arms").
> The 1980-1991 Audi Quattro Coupe was sold mostly with a five-speed manual
> transmission teamed to a turbo-charged, air-to-air intercooler version of
> the 2.1-liter inline five from the senior Audi 100/200 series (called
> in the United States); a normally aspirated 2.2 was available in certain
> markets from the mid-'80s.
> All-wheel drive (with center and locking rear differentials) made this a
> nearly unbeatable European rally car for several years, but a lightweight,
> short-wheelbase "homologation special" actually had less success than the
> stock models.
> The series began the worldwide industry craze for high-performance
> road cars -- including other Audis, which is one reason the car was
> from the United States after 1985 (though limited production continued for
> Europe all the way through 1990). But that historical significance, plus
> relative rarity and technical appeal, would seem to ensure its place as a
> future collectible.
> *Pluses of the 1980-1991 Audi Quattro Coupe:*
> - As for 1981-1987 Coupe/Coupe
> successful, pioneering concept
> - Spirited performance (8 seconds 0-60 mph, up to 130 mph maximum)
> - Great poor-weather traction
> - Rally-winner appeal
> - Not costly
> *Minuses of the 1980-1991 Audi Quattro Coupe:*
> - Exact appreciation potential unclear now
> - Some parts bound to be scarce in a few years
> - Audi image still tarnished in the United States
> *Production of the **Audi Quattro Coupe (U.S. calendar-year sales)
> - 1982: 287
> - 1983: **240
> - 1984: **65
> - 1985: **73
> - 1986: 1
