Before fame: 1971 Audi 100S Coupé

Before becoming a status symbol, Audi was an almost unknown manufacturer outside of Germany, with an extremely niche market in the rest of Europe.

Also because his cars were not cheap: they were still a product made with high quality standards, however they lacked the image and, too often, the captivating aspect: the 100S model instead was a pleasant-looking car with a four-cylinder, double-carburettor engine that produced the power of 113hp in its most powerful version: an absolutely respectable power for a coupe – derived from a sedan – from the very early 70s.

This particular in particular seems in really remarkable condition: the appearance is that of a car that has always been carefully preserved and never abused, it still has the original black plate and the interior also seems correct: we have not seen many 100 S Coupes but we suspect that this is among the best out there. Find it for sale at €32,000 (today $36,000) here in Padova, Italy.

  1. Someone said a good copy of Fiat Dino Coupé, but apart this consideration I could say that everyone who had any Audi in those years and until the early Eighties could be considered a satisfied client: good quality, good customer service, discrete look ( not for peacocks), a generous and reliable mechanics, and, talking about that age, surely the safer german car brand under the rain, far far safer than all the others!
