Audi 100 Coupe S

With Audi only being early on into its Volkswagen resurrection plans this was released a few years after the 4 door salon version in 1970. With shorter chassis it allowed for some more power from that upfront engine over the saloon and was offered with bored-out 1.9 litre producing 113bhp. The stylish fastback body allowed it to be sold as both a GT car and the sports car in the limited Audi line-up in the 70’s.




In total just over 30,000 were built until 1976, but when was the last time you saw one. The one below showed up at the recent VWNW show in the UK and was in stunning condition, it was also the first one I’ve seen in the flesh. It grabbed my attention as it drove past the stand I was on to park up. I’ve read that worldwide there are as little 600 left making this one of the rarest car’s I’ve seen recently. That sweeping body certainly makes a statement with those rear “air intakes” making it sleak and stylish.
