It wasn't until the late 1960s that Audi could really take off. The brand with the four rings is a merger of four German car manufacturers: DKW, Horch, Wanderer and Audi, gathered in the Auto-Union. A little later, NSU was added as well. Mercedes was the main shareholder but saw no future and sold the four brands to VW in 1965. In Wolfsburg people were mainly interested in technical know-how (such as front-wheel drive or reliable water-cooled four-cylinder engines). In short, in 1970 Audi still had a long way to go and a very limited range: only the 60 or the 75. These were still DKW models, some versions of which still used a simmering two-stroke engine. Thanks to NSU and DKW, Audi had built up a good reputation of 'Vorsprung durch technik' as a constructor who delivered 'decent' work. But that was equally true, or perhaps even more so for Opel, Ford or VW. And yet Audi would take flight, and build its way up into the premium segment.

It really started for Audi in 1968, with the presentation of the larger 100 series, the ancestor of the later A6. To improve its image, Audi decided to develop a coupé variant. It had to radiate elegance and sportiness. And yes, mission accomplished. On its debut in 1970, this coupé stood out with its rear. It had some of the then Aston Martin DBS, both the rear lights, but also the sporty louvres. Not bad to be compared to this aristocrat. The steeply sloping roofline gave it some more allure, just like the double headlights. In that period, that was only reserved for the more exclusive cars. A lot of chrome was still used. For example for window frames or logos.

A handsome line, but also inside it got a sturdy and thoughtfully designed interior. The successful business or sportsman likes to set the bar very high, so it's best that it looks good (with some wood inlay) and that it remains solid and free of creaks. Leave that to Audi and it will last a lifetime.

The engine for this coupé came from the top version of the classic four-door. A four-cylinder with 1900cc, but ticked up to 115 hp. Manual or automatic.

The competitors at the time had to be sought from (obviously) Mercedes or BMW. But there was also the Alfa GTV or a Volvo P1800. This Audi coupé especially wanted to belong to the stylish club.

This beautiful manual Audi 100 Coupé S in Turkis metallic was delivered on November 17, 1973 by garage Erwin de Ridder in Haasdonk, Belgium (then AUDI NSU dealer) to the first and only Belgian owner.

A few days before delivery, the car received a Dinitrol treatment, which at the time was often used as a treatment against rust. The proof of this treatment is still present, as is the maintenance booklet, which was filled until 1977 after maintenance at garage de Ridder. The car had then 39,332KM.

The car was insured until 1992, after which it was stored until recently after 19 years of service. More than 13,000€ was recently invested in the car and before delivery the car will be given a full check-up again.
