This Audi 4000S spent its life in Switzerland before coming stateside which explains the European '90' badging on it. Its winter tires are currently resting in Florida, but for $12,500 would it be a shame to put them to use up north?
The current owner purchased this vehicle while he was living in Switzerland and is only the third owner. A great deal of recent service has been performed, but even factoring that and the cost of shipping in, the $12,500 asking price is steep.
Outside, things look good but bring up some questions. We imagine that the tint was added in Florida, but maybe that's an uninformed assumption. There is some faded black trim in the back so maybe Switzerland is sunnier than we imagine.
The paint looks shiny but isn't a shade that we're familiar with on 80's Audi's so we're guessing it's a recent respray. It may be the photos, but it almost looks like some of the lower panels are the more traditional Audi red.
Inside the seats are sportier than the US 4000's and everything looks to be in great shape. The rear seats are also interesting with their integrated headrests which we have never seen. A "heavy duty" dash cover is currently on the car but the seller claims that there are no cracks underneath.
Under the hood things look brand new and the seller mentions that it was cleaned via "acid-drop" which is perhaps a mistranslation? The seller goes on to list "bearings / pistons / crankshaft / valves" and "fuel injection system" under the "new OEM parts" list, which if true would be an extremely bit of work. The motor would need to be pulled for all of that so I guess you might as well do a thorough cleaning.
Additional work includes new brakes and lines, control arms, oil pump, water pump, clutch, timing belt, alternator, and more.
There's no doubt that the car looks good and that a good deal of money has been spent on it. 4000's are some our favorites, but even at 3/4 of this price it would be a stretch. We hope the seller gets what ne needs here but you really need to be a 4000 fan.
