All U.S.-spec Audi coupes from 1981 to 1987 have 5 cylinder engines.
The 1981-1984 cars have 2.1 liter engines (100hp), 1985-1986 are 2.2 liter
(110hp), and 1987 are 2.3 liter (130hp) (approximate model years, as some
of the changeovers are mid-year).  In 1984 Audi went to closer ratio
5-speed transmission which reduced gas mileage but improved performance.
