1982 Audi Other Additional Info:

What a fun car to be able to offer! This pretty little red on brown 1982 Audi Coupe is quick to cheer you up on even the gloomiest of days! This is a long ad, but please be sure to read the entire thing - there is a lot of wonderful detail to cover! Let's dive right in!


Made in 1982 in looks remarkably sporty for the time and its big brother the Quattro certainly helped push that image. This car was was painted in Surinam Red which was a $285 option when made and optioned with the D92 Option Group from the factory. The dealer then took the optioning further and installed Thermo Guard, Fabric Protection, Floor Mats and Custom Pinstripes. Of course the car cam standard with a number of features like fuel injection, front disc brakes, alloy wheels, power steering, sport seats and more. This car sold new for $16,020 or $39,000 in 2016 money! This wasn't a cheap for a small sporty car for sure.
Everyone loves documentation on cars, including us. So to really make this special, we have the original window sticker, original dealer sticker, original payment receipts, warranty cost sheet, owners manual and more! The car will include an extra set of wheels, service manual and documentation!
Let's dive into the car further.

The Condition and Service:

Let's start on the engine and drivetrain:


This engine comes to life immediately with a twist of the key. She warms up quickly and revs smoothly. No knocks, bangs, excessive smoke or internal issues. The Bosch fuel injection is in good working order, but perhaps could a little tune. Nothing major though. Little moisture underneath, but nothing major or drippy. It happily drives around just fine as-is, so enjoy it as is or you can take care of some small fine tune items and really hum! Only 70k Carfax verified miles! That is only 2k miles per year on average!


The 5 speed transmission is in great shape. No grinds or surprises.


Nice riding Coupe, nothing clunking itself apart like many of them and Audi comfortable.


Good pedal, pad and rotors have good life in both front and rear


Steering feels good, no excessive play or vibrations.

Let's continue to the exterior:


The paint is fairly nice! It is a 6 out of 10. Overall shiny Surinam red paint which looks quite nice. No signs of a bondo job or accidents. CLEAN CARFAX! Nice for an original paint car, its only flaws come in the form of a couple minor dings/scratches etc, some sand blasting near the tires, some chips etc, and general wear. NO RUST. There appears to have been some paint touch ups as well. Good floors from underneath, some light oxidation on suspension components as per typical of all cars. This car presents as a "Driver -". cosmetically, but really looks quite nice none the less.


Both are in nice shape with no major flaws. Tires have loads of tread and are newer. Wheels have some chips, flaws and light rash but nothing major.


The bumpers are in nice shape! No major dents, cracks or issues! Some minor dings, chipping of paint, and light fading.

Onto the cabin:


The brown checkered seats are supportive, with great bolstering. They have some fabric tears as seen in the pictures, and have been under covers for some time, but the covers were removed to show the true shape of the seats. While not great shape, they are solid without any foam missing and are comfortable to enjoy the drive in. The rears are in very nice shape! Don't let the minor tears distract from the interior, overall it is quite nice, especially for a 34 year old car!


Nice shape, no major flaws, a few hairline cracks as photoed. The tray is in great shape and is clean.


Nice panels, wonderful map pockets. Really nice.


Nice carpet in the car! Clean and no tears.


All windows roll down and up with no issues. Good tracks and no dead rollers.


All the gauges work! Speedo, odo, temp and gas.

The Experience:

This GT Coupe is a treat to drive. It is fun, quirky, reasonably comfortable, nimble and smooth. It has all the power it had from the factory and then some, and from even a little gas is responsive. It is so easy to fall in love with this Coupe. It is fun to look at, fun to drive and you make friends wherever you drive! I find myself in odd cars all of the time, from the hyper expensive and rare, to the quirky, to the mundane. This Coupe seemingly always gets more thumbs up and questions then any other car. In a short drive just to photo it the other day I think I was stopped/waved at 3 times. There is something about a an old Audi! They were somewhat of an odd duck at the time and the rarity to see one on the road really makes for interesting piece of German car history. And that feeling is even greater as a driver then an onlooker. I hope you can tell by my long ad that this car is an great little Audi Coupe. This really is a very special car to drive and with the ongoing care within the collection, it is a worry free Audi, ready to be enjoyed! The minor cosmetics are easy, low hanging fruit on this car and with a solid driveline could be tackled while driving and enjoying the car regularly. Nice original car to enjoy as a period piece or as a father/son restoration!
