1986 Audi Coupe GT 2.2L from North America
An eye-catcher, powerful ride
Fuel injector distribution sensor burnt out.
Bought the car on August 2000.
Car is in immaculate shape, inside-out.
The car had a hard cold start when I first purchased it, and would loose power at about 3000-3500 rpms. After replacing the sensor, it runs like new. Have not seen another one like it. Have been told that most owners decide to keep them and restore them. That explains how hard parts are to find. Found out that I have a 15 gal fuel tank which means that it's an imported UK version.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have purchased a 1986 Audi Coupe GT (UK) version and am in love with it. My friends and family think I am obsessed with my car.
How rare are these cars?
I live in Vancouver, BC and have only seen 2. This car kicks ass and am in the process of restoring the bodywork and a new paint job soon.
Was going to sell it until some long road trips and almost got a speeding ticket; but alas, just a warning.
AUDI GT Coupe
My father-in-law gave me an 86. I love it, but may have to sell it. Do you think this car one day will be worth a lot?
The only remotely collectible Audi from that era would be the Quattro, and even then prices aren't like those of Porsches. Not that there is anything wrong with Audis of the era, just marketplace whims.
I agree with the eye catcher part. I notice people in their cars on the other side of the highway constantly breaking their neck to see what kind of car your'e diving. Coupes have a very low looking roof-line due to the steep angled windshield. I have pimped mine out over the years, a few modifications, and such. I have to have one of the meanest looking red coupe GTs in America.
Did you ever sell this car?
