In 1999 I had an objective to find an adequate replacement for the DKW Monza which was sold a number of years ago related to an overseas assignement. What would come closer than an ur-quattro 20V which is quite rare although not to the degree of the Monza? Both cars stand for the top of the range products of Audi (Auto Union) at their time.|
Preferred colour: Pearl white
After quite a short search I received a call from my Audi dealer that he had traded in a car which could be of interest for me: A Audi quattro Turbo 20V ("ur-quattro"), pearl white, model year 1990 with 85'000 km on the odometer. The price was fair and the only thing to be checked was the condition!
After comprehensive check and a short test drive, we completed the deal: The condition was absolutely outstanding!

From January 2020, thanks to perfect original condition, the car is officially registered under vintage car Licence.|
Thanks to the very attractive purchasing deal, the value of my car has already increased. Based on the glorious Rally- history and the importance of the ur-quattro for the success of Audi in the market, the trend to rising value is expected to continue. Non-modified original cars in excellent condition are very rare today.
