    The Audi Sport.......Cleaned up and looking Good!

    Right, well Chuffed to bits as finally have one of these Uber Rare 80's Rally Reps! Basically same 1800 motor as Golf GTI but way cooler

    Got it from a chap down in Lincolnshire, Picked it up and drove it home on sunday!!

    It is a very original car! 73,000 miles in Zermatt Silver, Has all the correct stickers, even the window stickers! Pity the dealer plates are gone Does have a bill of sale from 1986 (part ex'd after 3 years) for £5995 Still has the original M21 Melbourne stereo fitted and it works too! Not used to having to retune it as driving along though It's in very good order, has a couple of small rust spots and is just starting to go under the screen (Must sort that out ASAP) but overall is solid as a rock! 12 months MOT too! Sorted! Has some wheels and interior that I haven't seen before, am lead to believe from the previous owner that as this is one of the 1st Sports then the seats and interior only ran for 1 year!

    Anyway....some pics after I drove it home!







    Anyone seen these before???


    White audi rings????


    Interior Out for a good clean! A neighbour of mine is a car valeter and lent me some super dooper interior car detergent......worked a treat and it has come up very nice, just a pity about the sun turning the black seats purple Lovely brown dash aswell very 80's




    Original radio and VDO Gauges


    Sports Seats?


    Low miles.....


    Gave it a damn good clean and put it back together, the drivers seat has semi collapsed on the back rest but know a good upholsterer who can sort that:






    The engine bay is very clean! Motor runs very sweet and goes fairly quickly too! Has a very odd sump though.....Anyone shed any light, Dunt look standard and wondered if it was an original dealer performance part???



    Finally some pics with my 1.6CL! Is it just me or is the sport very different at the rear??? Did they use different shells or is it just 'cos the sport is 3 years older???




    Well thats it for now! Interior is sorted, just gotta give it a damn good wash, claybar, polish and wax, sort the bumpers and I'll post up some more pics

    What you guys think???

    Re: Bought Another Audi! This Time an Uber Rare Sport!

    they weren't all that rare back in the day tbh,they weren't rally reps or anything like that just basically a sporting 80 with that new fangled injection gubbins

    the reason behind the body difference is purely down to the CL being the slightly facelifted 80 prior to the new 80 coming out in 86/87

    still a good find all the same

    I thought they were Rally Reps as you had the Awesome Group B UR Quattro and in Group A they rallied the 80 Saloon abeit in Quattro form....

    Re: Bought Another Audi! This Time an Uber Rare Sport!

    the sport had an alloy finned sump as standard, just a shame they don't fit the transverse engined Golfs/Corrados
    I think it's used instead of the separate mk1/beetle style oil cooler or the mk2 golf onwards heat exchanger

    from what I recall they have better ratio boxes than the Golf GTI too.

    Re: Bought Another Audi! This Time an Uber Rare Sport!

    check out wiki

    " In 1983 the 80 Sport was introduced in the UK, based on the GTE. It came with quattro-style Ronal alloys, rubber rear spoiler, deep chin spoiler, striped charcoal Recaro interior, and optional body graphics including full-length Audi Sport stripes"

    also explains about the body difference too btw
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audi_80#Au ... 80.9386.29


    I remember when they were first out and them being a grown-up saloon alternative to the GTI

    same sort of sump as fitted to the VW-van/Audi 100 engined Porsche 924

    btw those wheels were also fitted to the early non-quattro Coupes

    Are these front or rear wheel drive? What engines can you swap into them easily? :wink:

    Very cool alternative to an original Mk1 GTI, love the 80's ness of it.

    FWD and a 5cyl 20v would go in nicely.

    A Farmer I know has a set of those alloys kicking around in his paddock. Corroded but would clean up great!
