Current customer rating:(2.1) based on 245 votes
This is the legendary 1987 Audi 5000CS Turbo Quattro in Diamond Black with with a two tone black/gray leather interior- rare vehicle! Five speed manual transmission w/Quattro all wheel drive transmission. Western car w/135k original miles with no rust or accident history. Original books and manuals. If you are an Audi enthusiast such as I. you know all about this wonderful car. I purchased this car in August of 2012 and overheated the engine due to a faulty thermostat two months later in October. It has sat in my garage since then until I had it towed to Hyperion Automotive here in Los Angeles last month to have a new engine installed into it. I purchased a good used low-mileage engine w/turbo (71k miles from a wrecked '87 5000CS Turbo- Carfax mileage verified) earlier this month for $1200 which has a 180 day warranty that needs to be installed (see photos). I am moving to San Francisco in January for work and will not have the time or garage space to "tinker" with this hobby/project car on the weekends. so unfortunately I am reluctantly selling it. I grew up in the 80's and this was THE car to own back in the day. so I have much nostalgia for the Audi 5000's- especially the Turbo Quattro's as they were very rare! The original paint is oxidized. but the body is extremely clean and straight (hence why I purchased it to eventually have it re-sprayed). The interior is clean and intact- the gray leather inserts for both driver's and passenger side is split in the center seat bottom panel. so only those panels would have to be replaced. The rest of the leather is in good shape (I was quoted $150 to replace both panels which I was going to have repaired once I had the car up and running). New Pirelli sport tires with the rare Audi Fuchs style alloy wheels. The car was running great until the overheating issue- everything worked fine except the passenger's side window would get stuck open (motor still works) due to a bad window regulator. Yes. this car has much potential and has all the right features worthy to the Audi enthusiast (Turbo. Quattro transmission. black on black color combo. manual transmission. no rust Western car. etc. ). so it is definitely worth putting the work into it. My mechanic quoted me $700 to have the engine installed and all the fluids changed. and I was going to have the interior worked on and have the car re-painted after I had it up and running. but my move will prevent me from devoting the time needed to get everything done. If you purchase the car. I can have the engine shipped included with the sale of the car via Central Freight Inc. to the mechanic/shop of your choice (I paid them $125 to have the engine shipped to me from Florida- centralfreight. com). I really wanted this car to be my weekend hobby car. so I'm sure another Audi enthusiast will enjoy bringing it back to it's full glory. If you are looking for an Audi 5000 to purchase/restore. this is the one!
