Lot 018: Audi Cabriolet

Classic & Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (13 July 2011)

Audi used the excellent 80 as the basis for the Coupe and Cabriolet, although they were never badged as such. Introduced along with the B4 version of the 80 they used a longer wheelbase and wider wheel arches than the outgoing model. Using the 116bhp 2.0E 4-cylinder engine, the Cabriolet featured a greatly strengthened screen which doubled as an effective roll bar and a simple but effective manual hood which proved very reliable in operation. The Cabriolet and Coupe versions remained in production long after the 80 was replaced with the Passat based A4, a direct replacement in the form of the A4 Cabriolet not arriving until 2002. This 1994 example was specified with green leather upholstery, alloy wheels and a boot mounted CD multichanger. It has covered 105,200 miles and has 14 service stamps in the service booklet. A number of invoices are included in the sale, showing a recent new fuel pump and filter. Purchased by the vendor in July 2009 it has had very limited use since, hence the reason for sale. It is MOTd until July 2012. This very presentable Cabriolet is ready to enjoy.
