An enthusiast from Nebraska is resurrecting a two-headed Audi 100

Ran When Parked reader Josh H. recently sent us a few pictures of a two-headed, ass-less Audi 100 purchased in Nebraska by one of his good friends.

The 100’s history is vague at best; all the owner knows about it that it was used as a display by an Audi dealership for years. We don’t know who performed the conversion, why, or when it was done, but it sounds like it was reasonably well built because the doors still open and close just fine. The 1981 Colorado inspection sticker affixed to one of the windshields suggests it was registered 35-years ago, which leads us to speculate that it was still a complete car at the time.

One of the two engines has been tossed out and replaced by a fuel tank, and a pair of small red lights discreetly attached to one of the bumpers indicate which end goes forward. The cabin has been left untouched, meaning the sedan (can we still call it that?) boasts two steering wheels, four front seats, and a pair of instrument clusters.

This bizarre Audi needs an array of minor repairs to start, but Josh’s friend hopes to get it running and driving in the not-too-distant future. We can’t wait to see this project come to life… and we can’t wait to hear how many times the owner hops in the wrong driver’s seat. We know we would. In the meantime, has anyone seen this car before? If you have more information about it, let us know in the comments section below.

  2. wow, that is cool. As an Audi 100 specialist I’m surprised to see that something like this was built and, what’s more, has survived. I estimate 30 cars left registered and maybe 50-100 altogether with back yard sitters in the US. Please restore this thing, and if there are questions and parts needed there is a group on yahoo and on facebook with many Audi 100 followers that can supply parts. The front end with the slim chrome bumper is from a ’72 model, the end with the big bumper is from a ’74 car. Goodluck and let us know how the progress is.

  3. Yeah, I can’t imagine parts availability is going to be too good for this. Last I saw one in the wild was 2009 in Albuquerque. A quick peruse on Google Streetview hints that it isn’t there any longer.
