2002 Audi S8

Last week, I wrote up a lovely Ming Blue 2001 Audi S8, and while it wasn’t the most perfect example out there, it was an honest, well maintained example. It seems that there are a plethora of 2001 models in the United States; more rare are the 2002 and 2003 models of this short-lived sports executive sedan. Today’s example looks like a carbon copy of last week’s example; again in Ming Blue and with the tan Recaro sports interior, this one is one year newer with less miles and the correct 18″ original Avus wheels:

GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY BIDDING!

While less miles is generally a very good thing on these complicated, large Audis, history has proven that well maintained examples are better to buy even with more miles. Still, because of the high entry price not many S8s were mistreated, and unlike their turbocharged S4 brethren they don’t draw the tuning crowd. Like the E38 7 series, they’re just a very good looking, sporty large sedan that offer class, luxury, and seemingly effortless speed on a reasonable budget. Every time I see one, I take a look at the bank account; today isn’t the day for me, unfortunately, but I hope someday soon will be!

  1. It’s the best car I’ve ever owned. Bar none.

  2. I would need more info before considering this one. It shows it was sold on the seller’s feedback in March. So, why is he selling it again a month later? Also, on the carfax no info between 2006-2012. So, I would want to review the records for that time. I had a PPI done on a 2002 S8 that I was interested in. It needed about three grand put into it. Output shaft, etc, etc. I decided to pass on that one. Nice examples are somewhat hard to find and 2003 limits you to exterior three colors. I think some of the ones out there have not been maintained the way they should be and that was the case with the one I was interested in. Not that it didn’t look good and drive seemingly fine. It just has some issues which cost some big bucks if you can’t do them yourself.

  3. Gawd dam! That’s a proper looking car.

  4. Isn’t it a given the automatic transmission will eventually fail on these models? I may have the wrong generation, but the autos Audi spec’d during this period were quite problematic.

    I’ll take my URS6 any day, but do appreciate the Ronin heritage. If only they’d given us the proper manual…

  5. Audi wheels are notorious for scrapes and curb rash, I believe they actually jut beyond the tire ever so slightly if my countless visual examinations in person and in photos are accurate.

  6. Sam, the S8 and S6 variants don’t quite as much due to the tire width, but the S4 is much more prone to it. Still, the rubber bends more than the wheel does, so they’re often scraped. Chris, the revised S8 transmissions don’t seem nearly as prone to failure as the A8 transmission. It’s pretty rare to spot a failed tranny S8.

  7. I would also be concerned about the lack of data from 2006-2012. Plus, and maybe this is just an oversight, but the cluster is showing a date in 1999. It should be a simple thing to change before taking photos and putting it up for sale, but it wasn’t done. Given the other details that were paid to the car in preparation for sale, it makes me wonder if the cluster has been replaced, and if so, why.
