Audi 5000 - The original King of Unintended Acceleration - Whatthedileo
This is my 1985 Audi 5000. I still have the window sticker from this car.
The video is from ~1995. I'm proud of some of my tweaks. The fake
'el-cheapo' car stereo faceplate that I used to hide my super-incredible
JVC head unit. And the hole I cut out behind the back seat to mount my CD
Changer (so I didn't have to go out into the trunk when it was raining).
Back to the JVC- that thing had a AUX jack that would let yoiu plug your
iPod into. But it came out in 1989!!! Also, notice the center console...
the 1985 Audi 5000 didn't come with one! Shawn helped me get that piece
from a salvage yard, and I made brackets and carpetted the sides.
I have always been a huge fan of the Audi 5000. I feel that vehicle, and
the Benz 190, gave birth to modern automobile design, what I call the
'molded' look. If you look at the styling of cars American cars from the
mid 80's and the late 80's, it is startling. One by one, U.S. cars went
bumpers and choppy steel bodies to suddenly looking like they were formed
out of a plastic mold.
The Mercedes Benz 190 was introduced in 1993.
The Audi 5000 was 'born' in Germany in 1983 as the 100.
At Chrysler, the '87 Le Baron coupe was their first new-age design.
At GM, I believe the change started with Boneville SSE in '87, and then the
Grand Prix SE in '88.
At Ford, I think the '86 Taurus is the most vivid example of the

bis 1994 insgesamt etwa 21.000 mal produziert.
