New Audi Club sweepstakes for spring 2022!

Audi Club is offering our most iconic prize ever. The Audi quattro Coupé, also known as “ur quattro” (German for “original quattro”) is the car that started it all, launching the Audi brand’s long history with all-wheel drive and asserting the four rings as a rallying legend. This 1985 specimen painted Zermatt Silver Metallic was originally built to U.S. specification, making it the penultimate evolution of the ur quattro sold in the United States. This particular car has been professionally augmented even further, with 20-valve AAN-code 5-cylinder engine built to produce over 300 hp, sport shocks and springs, Porsche brakes, RECARO seats and more. These components combine to make this quattro true to original form, yet a more capable and reliable for ultimate driving enjoyment.

More details and history of the car to come. Click the Sweepstakes Updates link below for the latest on this remarkable car.

Our goal since opening in 2012, has been to give owners a viable alternative to going to the dealer. This means a substantial investment in training, special tooling and factory diagnostics.

January’s Member of the Month:

Jamie Overcash

Longtime skateboarder, snowboarder and DJ. I started looking at wagons because I was tired of trying to stuff DJ equipment into sedans. My college roommate had a B5 manual A4 that was a blast to drive so going Audi for my wagon was an easy choice. I’ve always been a car guy growing up helping my dad work on his 62 Oldsmobile convertible. In high school the foreign car bug bit me, starting with my turbo’d 2001 Mazda Protege MP3 that I loaded down with JDM goodies, and continuing to today with my two German wagons.…
