  • Hello from Australia

    Hi Everyone,

    Love this site. So much great info and some absolutely beautiful machines. Very few rs2 and s2s down here in Australia as I dont think they were ever sold here.

    cheers

    Welcome!... nice to see another member from down-under.

    I think there were a number of factory Australian delivered S2s - less than 50 I believe. However, I've never seen any official proof of sale numbers. Not sure about RS2s tho'.

    Prices are very steep...
    Last couple of RS2s for sale were advertised in the region of $135k
    Last UR advertised was up for sale for $100k.
    Doubtful if you'll be able to get hold of a S2 for less than $40k+

    As you say... very few and far between here.

    Cheers

        Hi yeah ive since head that there are a few coupes. Im keen on an Avant but havnt seenany on the road or advertised. Been thinknig about importing one but yes will be an expensive exercise once freight and customs etc have been paid. not sure that people in Aus would ever appreciate ( in terms of numbers and hence price) the value of an s2 avant if i ever wanted to sell it again late either.

          I have not heard of any S2 Avants here, but a few (maybe 5-ish??) RS2s have made their way over here recently, and importing 25+ year old cars got a bit easier a couple of years ago

                    So i hope you find something to your liking and budget. Although sounds like you have your work cut out for yourself. Happy hunting and best off luck Lynn.

                        As far as I know, there are about 12 left in SA of the original 19 that came here..........but I cannot verify the numbers
