RM Arizona 2015 Preview – 1984 Audi Sport Quattro


Why so many auction articles, I hear you asking.

Auctions are one of the only appearances of extremely rare and coveted classics, and the photos and bios prepared as owners ready their beauties for sale are some of the best out there. Because whoever buys the car will absolutely adore it and think of it constantly, the pricest ones expecting above $100,000 are truly gussied up for the occassion. It is the equivalent of the Oscars for vintage automobiles — and this is the red carpet.

Few rally cars have as much lasting impact as the Audi Sport Quattro — and this is one of just 214 road cars built. Special.
