1991 Audi 100 - A 22,000 Mile Survivor

1991 was not a good year for Audi. 60 Minutes aired its unintended acceleration report titled Out of Control in November, 1986. Audi's US sales started free falling and bottomed out in 1991, with total sales of just over 12,000 cars.

The combination of low sales and the usual old car attrition rate means that there are very few 1991 Audi 100s left. This one has to be one of the nicest.

The seller says this car has 21,562 miles on it. Frustratingly, he doesn't give any background. (There has to be some sort of story behind a car that has traveled just a little over 1000 miles per year.)

There's not a whole lot I can say about this car. Except for a small crease near the left rear wheel well, it looks perfect.

The asking price is high, but if you're an Audi C3 100 fan, this is probably the nicest you'll ever find. It may well be worth the price.

The link to this car was sent to me by a JaCG reader who didn't leave his name. Thanks!
