Cohort Sighting: Audi 5000 (100-C2): The Anti-W123

Audi C2

I can show you parking lots full of Mercedes W123s, but a C2 Audi 5000? Not one to be found anywhere, yet their lifespans corresponded almost exactly. And the 5000 was quite popular in the US, at least on the coasts. But NickyD has caught one, in Berkeley, no less. Only one shot, along with the nose of Quattro Coupe, so it appears to be in loving hands. But if we ever get a full set, this is a car that’s long overdue for its day of reckoning here.
