The truth about granaries is that they can sometimes be a little rough near the edges. This 1982 Audi Quattro Turbo, for example, has been in storage since 1994 and has experienced more than slight wear and tear. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person.
After being in a Scottish garage for almost 30 years, recently discovered on The Late Break Show, it has seen even better days. Rusty and not running, it doesn’t take much work to get the car back on the road. Its body, however, in spite of decay, is in a salvageable condition and it has traveled only 58,083 (93,476 km) in its time.
Despite its age, the Audi Quattro has original, optional Fuchs alloy wheels that give it an attractive white-on-white color scheme. However, it is an aftermarket body kit whose source is unknown. Although it is its time, it should not hit the standard and, since the body needs recovery anyway, it can probably be reversed without too much hassle.

The interior, on the other hand, has managed to avoid major damage from animals, although there are some signs of erosion. That said, since it has been out of the sun for decades, the dash and seats are in good condition.
In terms of style, it’s up to you to decide but one thing is for sure, this car is a product of its time. Described as a zebra velor interior, it was a bold choice by Audi but the only major thing missing here is the radio.
Underneath the hood, its 2.2-liter turbocharged inline-five is more or less complete (its camera cover has been found since starring in a late brake show, as it has a brake caliper) although it is not currently running.
A great candidate for recovery, this Audi Quattro Turbo will undoubtedly entice enthusiasts. The amount of work required to get back on the road can turn some people off. Offered through Car and Classic, this online auction will end on June 14
