There is a growing interest in classic Audi, especially those associated with motorsports. The new Audi Quattro 20V from the UK, which will go through the auction block in June, may set records.
The car was first requested by a customer in 1990 and the dealer bought it directly from Audi. It was a 4,231-mile (6,809 km) control vehicle when it was delivered to its first foreign owner and was one of the last models to leave the plant.
Nevertheless, the owner decided not to drive it too much. Today, 32 years later, he has traveled a total of 32,000 miles (51,499 km) and has a very detailed record of his history. Each MOT test is recorded and each confirms the correct mileage of the vehicle. It also comes with a 1990 price list and an Audi dust cap when you were in the car garage. Vendors will also include a 1987 paper card and a cassette that can be used on the original Blaupunkt radio.

“We were delighted when the car arrived with historically significant memories, but it shows how expensive the car is,” said Gary Dunn, sales manager for Classic Car Auctions (CCA). “There is also a brochure Quattro Collection and a book of moments, published in 2005 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Quattro. This may be the most original Quattro Turbo available today.
In addition, the Audi Quattro has a historical connection to the carmaker’s huge success in racing, and there is a general taste for these cars, which argues that it could break this record at classic car auctions.
“The price of these cars is going up, and when such a car enters the market, we are all very happy, because it shows that there are cars that have been expensive all their lives,” said Dunn. “In recent years, we have set a world record in 2021 and sold a very outstanding Audi Quattros. This car is very well positioned to achieve a similar result. “
If that’s not enough to convince you, Wheeler dealer star Mike Brewer is working with CCA to help move the car.
“I’m happy to work with the CCA, which offers previews of the auction, and I’m going to choose some of the cars that will be offered for their upcoming sales,” Brewer said. “We will shoot some lots before the auction and the final preview will be published on Mike Brewer Motoring and our social media channels.”
The summer classic car auction will take place on June 18, with viewing dates set for Thursdays and Fridays prior to Saturday sales.
