The pearly white UR Quattro 20V has had two owners and just 9,700 miles on the clock.

The car — with a top speed of 143mph — sold for £145,000 before auctioneer’s fees were added.

The previous British auction house record for a Quattro was £72,000.

Gary Dunne of Silverstone Auctions, Warwicks, said: “It’s the best Quattro we’ve ever seen.”

The road and rally cars were made between 1980 and 1991 and have become a cult classic.

DCI Gene Hunt drove a Quattro in hit TV crime drama Ashes To Ashes.

Gary Dunne, sales controller of Silverstone Auctions, said: “The car is quite simply the best Quattro we have ever seen.

“It is believed to be the last one to be produced and until the sale it had had just two owners.

The first for 17 years and the second, our vendor, for the past 13 years.

“The condition of the car was superb, with less than 10,000 miles covered, and we are thrilled we were able to achieve such a fantastic result for our vendor.

“The vendor is over the moon with the result and the world record price achieved.”
