Looks like a Fiat Dino or Aston Martin DBS, and is built like an Audi
A fairly ordinary drive, rust killed a lot of these

Introduction

The Audi 100 Coupe S added a much needed shot of glamour into the range during the early 1970s, proving to be a perfect halo product for a manufacturer that was trying hard to establish itself. Shorn of its sensible suit and clothed in an Aston DBS-like coupé bodyshell, the Audi 100 looked very enticing indeed.

Although never a massive seller when new, the 100 Coupé S is one of those cars that has become more desirable with the passage of time, as classic car enthusiasts warm to its love-me styling combined with thorough German engineering. That’s turned it into something of a cult car.
