Audi developed a sports version of the Coupé in 1990, called the Audi S2. This replaced the famous Audi Quattro and featured the well-proven 2.2-litre in-line five-cylinder 20-valve turbo petrol engine, which was derived from the engine used in the Audi Quattro. The S2 came as standard with quattro-permanent four-wheel drive system and was capable of 150 mph.
The S2 was initially available with a 2.2-litre turbocharged engine which produced 217 bhp. In 1992, the engine received minor upgrades, including distributor-less ignition, which increased power output to 227 bhp. Although not a dramatic power increase, the engine now produced 350Nm of torque (up from 309Nm) and featured an over boost function that allowed up to 380Nm in short bursts. The S2 will accelerate from 62.1 mph in 5.7seconds, continuing to a top speed of 152 mph.
On offer here is a very solid 1995 manual car. The vendor spent a long time looking for the right one, with so many corroded or abused cars out there. Bought because “he just always wanted one” he has now scratched the S2 itch and has decided to move the car on. He always buys his cars based on condition rather than mileage and it’s true with this one also. Whilst not perfect, it is very good structurally and mechanically, having just had a service on done which included all oils and the cambelt. The interior shows some signs of wear, but this is hardly surprising for a car of this age. The vendor reports that the car runs and drives perfectly and that it accelerates quickly embarrassing many much more modern cars. These cars are becoming rarer by the day and are surely a future classic.
Supplied with its original service log book with many service stamps, V5C registration document and MoT test certificate that expires in June 2019.
