For sale is my cherished 1985 Audi Ur Quattro Turbo. This has been Quattro 'enthusiast' owned for the last 30 YEARS!. As a founding member of Club Audi, I knew how special these cars were way before they became the highly collectable car they are today. In fact I was more knowledgeable than the dealers back in that day at fixing them!. As the earlier WR variant of the Quattro, this is now being appreciated by the motoring world as a more involving 'drivers car' than the later MB and RR and is certainly by far the best sounding quattro, as later ones were actually quieter and more refined as they went on. Currently there are only 37 1985 WRs left on the road..so they are becoming very rare. This car has always been lovingly looked after and was only used as a weekend special, given I used my other cars for work. It was taken off the road in the late 90s and garaged. Owing to a growing family and three house moves later, it wasn't then resurrected till 2013. Although in very good condition, it then underwent a full nut and bolt mechanical and body restoration. A full bare metal windows out professional re spray was carried out by JM Rice bodyworks in Chelmsford. Every part of the restoration is documented and photographed. In 2014, this car was on the FRONT COVER car of PRACTICAL CLASSICS magazine, with a six page centre spread, such was the quality of my restoration work. Another two house moves later and the car was recommissioned back to the road over the summer. It had a new 3 part sachs clutch fitted by Quattro Concepts in Bucks, a full brake overhaul with new master cylinder, clutch master, clutch slave and brake hydraulic accumulator...so basically everything known on a Quattro to fail has been replaced! So the new owner can be confident the big jobs have been done.. It was then MOT in late August 2020 with NO advisories. As can be seen by the pictures, the bodywork and wheels are still in superb condition, which is a testiment to the quality of its restoration.it has no rust and the underneath suspension and brakes were all powdwercoated. This car has a very rare full black leather interior which I fitted in 1991. This is is excellent condition. (I have the original cloth interior and steering wheel which have been stored so are in time warp condition!) . The interior is completely unmolested without speaker holes in the parcel shelves or doors. It has its blaupunkt stereo with the original working fuba aerial.all of the digital voice works exactly as it should along with the diff locks. Unfortunately, it has become obvious the time has now come to sell my beloved Quattro. This is because with 5 cars, the reality is I really have to downsize!. Given I do so few miles in this car, I would love to see it go to a new owner who will look after it and appreciate what they have. Looking around at what's for sale in the UK, you will see this is a very rare low mileage car, with a huge service history covering 3 big A4 folders and old Mots etc. Its not some high mileage, car with a shiny recent paintjob....it was always good before it was restored! Clearly there is far too much to say about this car in an advert...it needs to be seen to be appreciated, along with its huge history file. As can be expected, I am in no rush to sell this car, so please don't insult me with silly offers or swaps etc. . I know exactly what this is and how good it is. As a rock solid appreciating investment classic....this is an ideal car for someone to enjoy, take to shows and cherish.
