Thanks Eric.  I was trying to dig up my copy of the book to scan a few 

Perhaps using the word "ugly" isn't appropriate.  It was attractive to me 
when it was new.  It's aged much better than I expected too.  I think the 
lines of the Coupe S are far nicer than the sedan.  In its day it was a very 
elegant car and the ride was fantastic.  Handling was.....well, average at 
best.  FWD was still pretty uncommon in mainstream sedans and the 100 LS had 
some quirks.

I saw this one in Ingolstadt: 
http://5000tq.com/audifanspics/Ingolstadt/DSCN2988 a few years ago at the 
Quattro 25 cellebration.  Even at an event where rare Audis were all around, 
this one attracted a lot of attention.

  Pics of said testbed can be found not too far down the page here:
  ...just below pics of one in Greece with urq ronals. I've seen
several 100S coupes in person, and they are gorgeous, even if the
styling isn't all that original. Didn't someone (John on the 20V
list?) claim that one of those 928 testbeds is still running around So

  It's so ugly that I want it.
  The first time I saw one of these was in the pages of Project 928:
  where Porsche used the body of one to disguise the 928 drivetrain so
  could test on open roads secretly.
