What you see here is something truly special — at least, if you’re into weird "survivor" cars like I am. This is a 1997 Audi Cabriolet, and it’s traveled just 13,000 miles from new. These rarely become available because they weren’t particularly popular, and when they do, they almost never have this mileage.
First, a little overview. The Audi Cabriolet was the convertible version of the Audi 90, which went away after 1995 in favor of the A4, which came out in North America in 1996. But the Cabriolet was allowed to continue for a while longer, as it was sold alongside the newer A4 sedan and wagon through the 1998 model year.
This particular Audi Cabriolet was sold new in Connecticut and owned by one owner there until four months ago. It’s now being offered by Bridgewater Acura in New Jersey, and it’s truly a time capsule. Most of these are either tattered or no longer available, which makes them truly difficult to find in any condition. This vehicle, however, is in excellent shape. The car is silver with a dark gray interior that shows very little wear, and it’s an excellent specimen of the Audi Cabriolet.
If you’re interested, this Audi Cabriolet is offered for $12,999 — big money for one of these, but it may actually be the nicest one in existence. It’s an automatic, as most were, and it uses Audi’s 2.8-liter 6-cylinder and front-wheel drive. More importantly, it appears completely original. Find an Audi Cabriolet for sale
