From the full on Audi R8 supercar to the cheap and cheerful coupé S2, fast Audi's aren't hard to find on the used car market. Here's our pick of the best for every budget.
1 - £11,500 - Audi RS2 Avant (1994-1995)
The RS2 was actually the result of a tie-up between Porsche and Audi, and all the clues are there. It sits on Porsche wheels, has door mirrors from a 911, Porsche motifs on the badges and even an inlet manifold built at Porsche’s factory. In many ways it’s as much a Porsche as an Audi, and in terms of performance it certainly has more in common with a Porsche than an Audi 80.
It was powered by Audi’s five-cylinder turbo engine, but in a heavily revised format. A bigger turbo, better breathing and a host of internal changes meant the engine now produced 311bhp, while a 40mm drop in ride height and the braking set-up from a 911 necessitated that switch to bigger wheels. The results were pretty spectacular, however.
The RS2 had supercar performance, hitting 60mph from rest in 4.8sec and pushing on to more than 160mph.
If you fancy getting your hands on an RS2, you’ll have to hunt around. Just under 3000 cars were manufactured during the two-year life of the model, of which only 180 were right-hand drive and not all of those came to the UK. If you do find one, however, it won’t be cheap, with the best examples commanding something in the region of £15,000.
