High Five: 1984 Audi Coupe GT

The B2 generation Audi Coupe (or Coupé if you are into that kinda thing) was a cheaper version of the Audi Quattro Turbo and shared its aggressive styling but was available in the non-turbo GL, GT and Coupe Quattro versions.  The Coupe GT combined the basic style of the legendary Quattro with a budget drivetrain and was actually an adept car on a back road.  Find this 1984 Audi Coupe GT offered for $4,000 in Roanoke, VA via craigslist. Tip from Richard.

The 5-cylinder Audis from this era have a very rabid active fan base and future values should trend upwards if my crystal ball is correct.  When new, folks from the world of print media lauded the Coupe GT for its handling/style/luxury — you can read this article from Car and/or Driver where it beat the Chevy Camaro Berlinetta, and Ford Mustang SVO in a comparison test.

The Coupe GT is powered by a 2.2 liter inline-5 cylinder Audi engine
that puts 110 horsepower into the front wheels via a 5-speed manual
gearbox.  The inline-5 is mounted so far forward in the engine bay that
the radiator is mounted under that plastic shroud to the right of the
engine.
