My S4 is UrS4: 1993 Audi S4

The C4 generation Audi S4 was the first car to wear the S4 badge and as such is commonly called the Ur-S4, Ur being short for Ursprünglich or original in German.  Audi was nipping at the heels of BMW and Mercedes in the sport/luxury sedan segment, and when introduced in 1991 the S4 added a well needed dose of fun to Audi's lineup of luxury sedans.  The big part of Audi's recipe for creating an ///M & AMG competitor was the addition of a turbocharged engine to the quattro equipped sedan.  Turbo Audis had been around before, but the 2.2 liter inline-5 in the S4 was boosted to 230 horsepower and 258 ft-lbs of torque.  Performance was great for the day with 0-60 in about 6 seconds and a top speed governed at 130 mph.  Today we've got an example that isn't some low mile over-priced trailer queen -- and looks to be a great way to spend less than $5k and have a good time. Find this 1993 Audi S4 offered for $4000 in Fort Collins, CO via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

More detail:
The time has come to sell my 1993 Audi S4 (UrS4). I have owned this car for over 12 years and it has been a fantastic vehicle. I am the second owner. Garaged 99% of its life and pampered. Colorado Car, imported to Aspen CO from Germany. Original price was $47,450.00 in 1993.
No rust, the Emerald Green paint is in good condition. There is some oxidation on the clear coat on the trunk, some minor scratches and a few small dings but looks great overall.
The interior is in good condition. Rare black interior with carbon fiber. The bolsters of the Recaro seats are still soft to the touch with no rips or tears.
The interior of UrS platform is top notch, from the Recaro seats to small details like gauges with white faces and the UrS “S” logo.
The 20v Turbo is one of the finer examples of this amazing motor configuration. The turbo is in good working order. 5K oil changes (always with Rotella T6 and Audi filters). This car is fast and sounds great.
