When you think GT nowadays the brawny new R8 GT comes to mind, however the GT nomenclature dates back further than that albeit in a less exotic fashion. Exotic or not though, the Coupe GT of the 1980s has long been a favorite of Audi enthusiasts for its affordable price yet shape (if not performance) quite close to the iconic ur quattro.
Sold only in front-wheel drive and with a normally-aspirated engine, the Coupe GT wasn't the performance beast the Ur quattro was... at least most of them weren't. This particularly clean Coupe GT found on Ebay has benefitted from a turbo engine swap. Here's the description.
