Audi 100 & 200 C3 (1982-1991) specifications

Audi 100 & 200 C3 (1982-1991) specifications Classic and Performance Car

One of the most advanced and aerodynamic cars when it was launched, the C3 Audi 100 and 200 remain usable to this day


The trouble with the Audi 100 is that it looks too modern for its own good. It’s hard to believe that the cigar shaped executive dates back to 1982, but then, it did redraw the map when it arrived on the scene. Pioneering use of flash glass and an aerodynamic shape meant that the 2.2-litre version could outpace a 3.5-litre Rover, but use 30 per cent less fuel. The 100 is still reasonably common thanks to tough build and galvanised shell from 1985, but the 200 is endangered – a shame given its 140mph potential. Still not regarded as ‘classic’ enough, so values remain low.
