It looks very good in many respects, but why claim an 'extensive' restoration whilst not finishing the pin striping and leaving a fooked drivers side headlamp on it?????

It hasn't got a 20v steering wheel either as claimed.

Some stuff in auctions doesn't add up....

I watched a mark 2 escort last time with a stack of wrong bits on it but this is down to the vendor not the auction house I suppose.

I agree, but if it is the vendor's description, and they get aspects wrong, it always makes me wonder / question just how 'extensive' it was done when it's obvious some of the very visible basics have been overlooked!

You've got to love the flowery, plum in mouth, thumb up a@*e language in some of these descriptions. It's only a car for goodness sake, not the ark of the covenant.

They'd at least get 40k for that!

Yeah, that would be a different proposition.

I remember a workmate turning up in his dad's brand new tornado red Ur Quattro back in the late 80's and driving it around the work car park, a few days later he bent it on a roundabout in north London with only a few thousand miles on the clock.

I've talked some cod shite in my days, but this excerpt is a real peach:

Keeping up with this particular example would have been a challenge beyond most mere mortals given that it was road registered to Nigel Mansell on 13th June 1984. Driving for Team Lotus and resident on the Isle of Man at the time, the future Formula One and Indycar World Series Champion appears to have sold the Coupe following his move to Williams Grand Prix. Interestingly, Mansell's new race number at the Grove-based equipe - the iconic Red Number '5' - matched the colour and cylinder count of the Audi.

So being registered to NM makes it a fast car? Could the same logic be applied if he fancied a Lada?

NM's car having a red 5 on it... fascinating.

Closer inspection of this car has revealed that it has the wrong period nose on it (probably upgraded to facelift after it's smash) as it should have the pre-facelift flat nose on it.  It has a painted rear spoiler which it shouldn't and the decals should be black and not silver.

The list of anomolies for this 'extensively' restored car is a bit of a shame as it's obviously had a lot of work.  A lot of miss directed attention to detail though for what is expected to fetch loads of cash.  

I'm not sure the provenance of Nigel Mansell's ownership is worth such a premium over what is, a fundamentally flawed interpretation of a 'restored' quattro, however good other aspects may be!

Yeah!  I'm sure his number 5 was in honour of his 5 cyl Audi - he just sold!
