Glorious Find of the Day: 1982 Audi quattro…Pre-Production Prototype

words: Bill Cho, photos:

Every once in awhile, you run across a car that seems too good to be true. This is one of them…and it’s true. This is reportedly one of the twelve right-hand drive prototypes built on the ‘C’ chassis and is likely the first one in the United Kingdom. When Audi built the production right-hand drive models, they were built on the ‘D’ chassis making the twelve prototypes very unique. What makes this one even more unique, it’s one of two prototypes that still exists (the other one is in Scotland).

Chassis 85CA901328 was built in June 1982. It only has 72,000 miles on it since it was 1st registered in August 1982. One of the previous owners stored it for twenty years which accounts for the low mileage. It had an extensive mechanical restoration in 2016. In 2017, the original paint was stripped and resprayed in the original color.

If you want to own a piece of history, get your wallet out. It’s predicted to sell for between £50,000 and £60,000 but with the rarity of this model, it will probably go for a lot more.
