Lot 217 - 1993 Audi 80 Cabriolet
|Odometer reading||106,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,528|
The Audi 80 was manufactured by the subdivision of the Volkswagen Group across four generations from 1966 to 1996. It shared its platform with the Passat from 1973 to 1986 and was available as a saloon and estate version, the latter marketed by Audi as the Avant. The Audi 80 obtained a major facelift in the autumn of 1991, although the UK launch was not until early 1992. It was from then on known internally as the B4. Changes from the previous model included a longer wheelbase, a redesigned fuel tank and rear axle to enable the use of folding seats, 15" wheels with more prominent wheel arches, redesigned and painted rear and front bumpers, as well as higher-quality materials for the interior, and a larger boot. The front grille was merged with the bonnet and given a bolder look.
This well maintained Audi was originally registered on 3rd June 1993 and presents in good condition. A new hood was fitted in 2015 and, we are advised, she drives well with no known faults. These stylish cabriolets are synonymous of the time and benefitted from a period of ‘over-engineering’ by the VAG group. The 2.3 litre, five cylinder engine is a reliable unit with a suitable level of torque for such a car. Finished in white with a blue interior, this Audi is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 5th June 2020. Offered for sale without reserve.
