Sunset Red Star Tricky To Find

May 28

Fire up the Quattro…or not. The final series of Eighties-inspired BBC One drama Ashes to Ashes was almost a non-starter due to a lack of spare parts for DCI Gene Hunt’s Sunset Red Audi Quattro. Since the series first aired back in 2008, sales of second-hand Quattro’s have taken off according to The Sun newspaper, and as a result it’s almost impossible to track down old parts.

Speaking to the Radio Times, show mechanic Guy Bostock said the growth in popularity of the car, meant it was growing increasingly harder to source parts, and that finding stunt doubles for the show’s Sunset Red star was proving tricky, as the asking price for an ur-Quattro has soared since the show began. Debuting at the Geneva Motor Show in 1980, production of the Quattro finished in 1991. Since then it has become one of the most in-demand Audis ever built.
