I ♥ the 80s: 1985 Audi 5000 Turbo



Does anybody else remember what a futuristic mindfuck this car was when it was introduced? With flush-mounted windows and shit? It was so clean as to be almost featureless, sleekly neutered like an automotive Marilyn Manson that you could somehow (strangely) bring home to meet the parents without consequence.

what i've never understood about audi is their incessant need to shove the engine as far FORWARD as possible. otherwise though, undoubtedly cool in that minimalist audi sort of way.

Audi pushes the engine forward due to the AWD. The front wheels have to be behind the engine so the axels can come out of the tranny and mate straight to the wheel.

That's also not an '85 5000, looks like an early 90s...90.
