In the 80s, Audi was the king of rallying, and it was all because of Quattro. Every Audi available today owes its life to the Ur-Quattro and the Quattro Sport.The first Audi Quattro rally car (sometimes called Ur Quattro, “Ur” being the German word for original) was the brand’s foray into 4-wheel drive sports cars, which coincided nicely with Group B rally rules changing to allow 4 wheel drive cars to enter, and Audi cleaned up for the next 2 years because of the Quattro. The 1985 Model featured a 2.1L turbocharged engine making just 160hp in the US/Canadian market, fitted to a 5-speed transmission, sending power to all 4 wheels and sitting on fully independent suspension all around.

This 1985 Audi Ur-Quattro is one of the last of the 18 cars officially imported into North America, states the seller. The car was prepped by Frank Sprongel, who was a Canadian Rally Champion. In the mid-90s the car received over $30k of work, and a particular boost in performance with 245 hp to the wheels, 85 more than stock. This is a super cool and rare car, and if you were a child of the 80s growing up watching these fly over dirt and snow, this is a rare opportunity to own one.
