This exceptional Audi A6 2.6SE is finished in original Ragusa Metallic, (Code LY6P), an expensive factory option when new. The factory original paintwork boasts a wonderful deep uniform shine and beautiful finish, a testament to the very low mileage and one fastidious owner from new. All original panels are pin straight and even upon close scrutiny imperfections are difficult to detect. All trim pieces, registration etched glass and badges are superb, although worthy of mention is a chip to the nearside headlight and very light scratches to the nearside front bumper corner. Audi main dealer number plates remain fitted. Appreciators of build quality will marvel at the legendary Audi craftsmanship, with this Condition One example being one of the best in existence.
This high specification SE model is trimmed in Platinum Jacquard-Satin upholstery, (Code N2H). The original seat coverings are in perfect order with the firm bolsters and seat structure retaining correct shape and absolutely no deterioration to the material. The supreme build quality can be felt in all buttons, controls and functions, all of which operate perfectly and feel like new. The LCD displays to the onboard computer, warning systems, climate control and gear shift indicator are all in perfect order with no failed pixels whatsoever. The headlining, fascia and doors cards are as new and the quality carpets are pristine having been protected from new by genuine Audi floor mats and a second set to cover the first!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The super-smooth V6 OHC engine with light-alloy cylinder head is entirely standard and performs perfectly, a testament to the low mileage and incredibly fastidious servicing and maintenance carried out since new. Lifting the bonnet reveals a pristine engine bay complete with factory plates, stickers, panels stampings and even PDI markings! The desirable factory optional automatic transmission DSP(G) performs flawlessly and offers an even greater relaxed cruising manner. This example performs as brilliantly as the 23 Audi Main Dealer stamps in service book would suggest!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original and unrestored SE 7J x 15 eight spoke alloy wheels are in pristine order and are shod in matching manufacturer specification Dunlop Sport 205/60 R15 tyres with masses of tread remaining. The original matching spare alloy wheel and Dunlop SP Sport B8 tyre are as new having never seen use! Housed alongside the spare wheel in the immaculate luggage area is the original Jack, tool kit and warning triangle, and the boot floor displays factory build stickers. The Advanced Anti-Lock System (ABS) features discs to all four wheels to offer powerful, assured and safe braking power.
Supplied new on 29th August 1996 by Audi Main Dealer Arthur Prince Ltd in Loughborough, this exceptional example has enjoyed just one owner from new whilst being strictly garage stored when not in use. A new car order form and sales invoice made out to Mr Ian Randall confirms a total price paid including factory options of £27,262.17. It is difficult to imagine another example having quite such an incredible history file which documents full Audi Main Dealer service history. The original service book contains 23 stamped entries, every one being an Audi Main Dealer and in fact the same dealer in Leicester has cared for the car every year since 1998! Each stamped entry has the corresponding Audi service invoice and maintenance checklist in the history file along with every single MOT certificate since the first in 1999. Perusal of the huge history folder is a lengthy yet pleasurable task and the reader will be left in amazement at just how well this example has been cared for. All handbooks, guides and dealership literature have been kept in the immaculate black leather wallet along with three Audi keys plus master and the original key code tag and fobs. An Audi A6 sales brochure completes this remarkable history file.
With just one owner, 53.532 miles and full Audi Main Dealer service history, this example is without question amongst the best in existence, and examples with such provenance are very rarely found.
