In Bavaria, we weren’t suprised to hear Road & Track named it “the best sports coupe for the 80s.”

For many cars, such lavish praise might be impossible to live up to. But not for this car.
The Audi Coupe is, clearly, the quintessential Gran Turismo Sports Coupe.
In naming it the best sports car for the 80s, the editors of Road & Track are not alone. Motor Trend: “… we’d have to call it the most ferociously desirable new car in 1981.”
Car and Driver: The Coupe is “… one of the most effective remedies yet, for creeping four-door boredom.”
From the drawing boards in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, Audi engineers have created a car that truly advances the art of GT Coupes.
In sleek, good looks and aerodynamics, it is second to none. In engieering, the Coupe offers Audi’s matchless front-wheel drive, five cylinder powerplant (0-50 in 7.4) and a tenaciuos road-holding ride. The interior is first-class European GT styling. Even the EPA numbers are impressive: EPA estimated 24 mpg and 37 estimated highway.*
All in all, quite a coup for our Coupe.

*Use “estimated mpg” for comparison. Mileage varies with speed, trip length, weather. Actual highway mileage will probably be less.
