1985 Audi 5000S

The 3rd generation Audi 100 sedans were introduced in 1982, with the slightly more upscale 200 arriving a year later. In the U.S., the car was known as the 5000 before 1988, when it adopted the 100 and 200 designations for the tail end of the 3rd generation. At the time, the cars were extremely advanced and modern, with styling that still looks amazingly fresh today, and competent mechanicals to back up the modern looks. The Avant, or wagon, featured a beautiful sloping, fastback silhouette, making it, in my opinion, one of the best looking cars of the eighties and nineties.This 5000S has the earlier non-flush front lights; a change in crash rules eventually brought the front end styling up to date with the rest of the car.
