PLEASE NOTE: The hood was not functional when the vehicle was viewed

The Audi Convertible was a very aspirational car from very early on in its life and got the Audi brand in front of a wider audience than just the motorsport fraternity. The pivotal point for this model though was Princess Diana choosing one as her daily driver in 1994. She went for the 2.3 Automatic and took delivery of it in March of that year. Virtually every time she was photographed over the next few months in and around London she was never far away from the Audi and the young Princes were often sat in the back with the hood folded down. Power came from 130bhp 2.3-litre `five' or 150bhp 2.6 V6 engines, as here, mounted longitudinally in Audi tradition and build quality was solid; the galvanised bodies mean that rust is rarely ever an issue unless they have been crash-damaged, and interiors, half leather in this case, are long-lasting, from a time when German build quality was world-renowned.
