Two interesting Quattros for auction this month

Two interesting Quattros are coming up for auction this month (21st March) in the Bonhams auction at the 73rd Goodwood Members Meeting.

Ex-works, Hannu Mikkola/Arne Hertz 1982 Audi Quattro A1 Group B Rally Car

Estimate 240,000 - 280,000

Audi's win in 1983, when Hannu Mikkola took his first World Drivers' Championship, had been achieved despite a rule change that placed the Quattro at a notional disadvantage compared to the lighter two-wheel drive Lancia Rally 037. Manufactured during the first quarter of 1982, this well-restored Group B Quattro is one of the works cars that helped him achieve that well-deserved success after so many years in rallying. Mikkola used '900012' (at that time in Group 4 specification) in the 1982 Monte Carlo Rally, finishing 2nd behind the Opel Ascona of Walter Rohrl, and in that year's Swedish Rally in which he finished 16th. It was then retained for training duties well into the 1983 season before being converted by Audi to Group B specification and sold. Its purchaser was the Finnish VW/Audi importer and for the next few years the Quattro would be driven by the famous ex-SAAB rally driver, Antero Laine.

1985 Audi Sport Quattro

Estimate 220,000 - 280,000

This particular Audi Quattro Sport has an 'mph' speedometer and is understood to be one of the original six cars delivered to the UK. The car is a superb example of the Sport Quattro, in excellent condition and the best colour scheme in terms of the model's rallying pedigree. Purchased from William Loughran by the current vendor in the early 2000s, it has had two previous owners and has covered only some 24,000 miles from new.

The Sport has been serviced and re-commissioned to a very high standard by AM Cars, one of the UK's leading Audi specialists. Work carried out includes a full engine service (cam belt, idler pulley and water pump replacement); brake overhaul (new fluid and the AP callipers re-conditioned by AP Motorsport); and a full suspension rebuild (new bushes and mountings, genuine Sport shock absorbers re-valved and reconditioned by Bilstein). In addition, the sub-frames, wishbones, etc were stripped and powder coated; drive shafts and prop-shaft refurbished; and all four wheels aligned. The floor pan and underside have been cleaned, with all old under-seal removed, and then retreated with new under-seal and Waxoyl. New fuel and brake lines have been fitted and the alloy wheels refurbished by Pristine Wheels of Milton Keynes. Some small trim pieces were missing from the interior, and replacements have been sourced and fitted. The paintwork is original, albeit refreshed in areas that needed attention. Representing a rare opportunity to own a piece of Audi's rallying history, this ultra-rare Quattro Sport is offered with sundry restoration invoices and current MoT certificate.


Conservative estimates!

Amazing  price these went for: road car 287000 rally car 253500 , to think they could be had for 30-50,000 not to long ago. I hope it has an effect on the price of  the 10/20v ur's

Thanks Hedge I meant to put the achieved prices up.
