1983 Audi UR Quattro 82/83 Early RHD, FSH, low miles, Exceptional For Sale

Sold originally through one of the six authorised dealers, VAG J. B Car & Truck Ltd and registered on the 4th Jan 1983 to the owner of South Wales Blind Co. this Mars Red (code LA3A) Quattro is one of the first UK RHD built examples (chassis no: 85DA9xxxxx built 1st wk Oct '82) and is offered exactly as per her original non-sunroof specification suggest.

A tour around this Mars Red Quattro, will leave most speechless! The panels are free from any dents, with panel gaps consistent with Audis high build quality standards, let's not forget that ever Quattro was hand-built, just 3 a day and subject to even more stringent standards. The paint work has the most sensational shine, free from any fade. All the rubbers / trims / lens / glass / decals remain in superb condition and are free from any damage, with just the lower part of the front bumper showing just the odd stone chip. The original 6" Ronal alloys are free from any curb damage too, original centre caps present and the car comes fitted with a matched set of tyres showing 7mm tread, with the original 'Goodyear' spare mounted in the boot. A remarkable and highly original example in every way it's hard to believe that this Quattro is nearly 40 years old, she could easily be mistaken for a car a 10th of its age and with the trademark twin-tailpipe exhaust and 'Quattro' decals this car just looks right!

Opening the door and the quality continues, Audi's of this period have a certain smell, factual, and this car smells just like it did when new! The seats, finished in the correct Mocha 'Quattro' material are in, nigh-on, perfect condition. The seat bolsters remain firm and supportive with no nasty marks, tears or creases! The rest of the interior also remains in excellent condition; everything in factory fresh condition and detailed correctly, the correct 4-spoke 'Turbo' steering wheel shows little wear, the dash, being an early production example is analogue, not digital, and functions correctly, the headlining (wow) is perfect as is the rear parcel shelf, the carpet, door cards etc are all perfect and off course the original Blaupunkt Toronto SQR32 stereo sits in place (we admit to never turning it on!) and on inspecting the boot area, which appears to have never had a bag in there is perfect too and its great to note that not only is the tool kit present but that the all important Audi 'build' sticker is present too.

Remaining in a collection for the last few years the Quattro has seen little use and so since her arrival at Absolute Classic Cars we've carried out a major service; fitted a new cambelt, water-pump, coolant change, new fuel filters (2), air filter, oil filters (2), new plugs, leads, dizzy cap, rotor arm, thermostat, all new fluids to engine, gearbox, diffs, braking system etc, new clutch master cylinder and a full strip down / check of the braking / suspension components. As such the Quattro runs perfectly and drives fantastically .... if allowed we'd take her home every day, via a long detour (lol), to just enjoy being behind the wheel. She's just a joy to drive, hugely rewarding, an aural delight with the typical 'off-beat' warble.... just a minute behind the wheel of the Quattro reminds you that this car is a motoring legend!

A truly cherished example this Audi Quattro comes with one of the most staggering history files we've ever seen. There are two lever arch folders containing invoices all the way back to her original PDI sheet, a number of magazine features (there are even references to Ashes to Ashes), all MOT's (excluding time in storage) supporting the indicated 62k miles, original Blaupunkt brochure / she comes with her dealer book pack and records confirm that she's been serviced a staggering 31 times (VAG, independent, Quattro specialists etc) confirmation that this Quattro has been fastidiously maintained and an example that's unlikely to be replicated.

Without exception, the finest Audi Quattro we've ever come across and undoubtedly finished in the 'must have' colour, Mars Red, this Quattro ticks all the right boxes, a true classic / icon in every sense and ready now to 'Wow' her new owner and with decades of enjoyment ahead too!
