A4 2.8 Quattro (B5)
|Colour||Pearl Effect Blue Paerl|
A lovely, genuine and original 1997 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro with just 39603 miles from new in the care of only two previous keepers.
With ten Audi main dealer service stamps plus independent servicing, this fantastic example has been meticulously maintained since new.
Finished in the cost option colour of Pearl Effect Blue Pearl, the car is in very good order. The paintwork is completely original and still retains a consistent, deep shine. The odd little touch ups over the years do not detract from its lovely condition. All the factory glass is in excellent condition and have been etched from new with the registration number. Again, all the head lights, indicators etc are damage and crack free.
The interior is just lovely and consistent with a low mileage and well looked after car. The charcoal premium quality leather seats are still nice and tight and show only the minimal amount of wear. The rear seats looked to be un-used and are as new. The carpet is very clean and damage free, along with the door cards, dashboard and head lining. Everything electrical is in perfect working order. Considering the car is now 20 years old, the specification is still quite impressive and consists of the following...Air Conditioning, Climate Control, Electric Windows and Mirrors, Traction Control, Headlamp Power Wash, 6 CD Multichanger, Leather Seats and Leather Steering Wheel.

As you would expect, the car drives like new and is testament to the premium build quality of Audi in the 90s. The performance is still pretty good even by todays standards and the car is rattle free and incredibly well put together. The legendary Quattro drive train keeps everything under control and the brakes are responsive and sharp. Twenty years on and this car will not disappoint in the way that it drives.
Showing just two previous recorded keepers ( Father and Son ) and then the current, we feel that this example is one of those cars to use occasionally and just keep tucked away as a future investment. Complete with the original owners hand book pack, current V5 registration document, two original keys and the additional plastic key. Even the factory supplied video cassette for the Audi A4 is still present!
With a current MOT until March 2018 the car is ready to be used and enjoyed.
