If you're looking for a vintage sports car and love rallying, you might be interested in this vehicle. It's a European-market 1983 Audi Ur-Quattro that for a pretty reasonable price. It's painted in a deep navy blue, and recently underwent a major service. You should buy it.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

According to the description, this Quattro was delivered new in Germany, where it was eventually sold 1991 to a new owner in Colombia. The car was kept there up until recently, when the owner exported the car to Florida and added much of the 38,860 miles shown on the odometer. Eight years back, it was given a full glass-out respray in that lovely shade of blue, and treated to some sweet four-ring decals on either door. The car received a service four months ago which included an oil change, an air conditioning recharge, and new brake pads.

European-market-spec headlamps, bumpers, headliner and German-language differential controls confirm this car's origin. The 2.1-liter turbocharged inline-five engine is said to work great, sending power to all four wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. The digital gauge cluster and original Blaupunkt radio are said to function normally. Thankfully the Recaro-branded seats don't have any rips or tears (though they do look well-used).

The car is . Considering you can find less desirable American-market Quattros for a whole lot less, we can understand why this price could offend some people. But locating a well-driven, cared-for Euro-market Quattro like this one this side of the Atlantic doesn't happen often. Better act fast before it disappears forever.
