V8 Week: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG

V8 Week: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG

We don’t often feature SLKs here on GCFSB.com, nor do we often feature any of the “three German hairdressers.” The Z3, TT and SLK were all popular, and in general all hated by enthusiasts but loved and desired by the public at large. But in each of their own ways, they had something special to offer enthusiasts. For the TT, it was all wheel drive, turbocharged power and a body that has aged better than most French wines. For the Z3, there was the undeniably sporty Z M Roadster and the fastest breadvan in the world, the Z M Coupe. What did the SLK have to offer then? Well, the nutters at AMG decided that it needed a 5.5 liter V8 mated to a 7 speed auto. With 355 horsepower and enough torque to melt your tire budget like the proverbial knife through butter, these cars were the closest thing the Germans had made to both a hot-rod and a joke. Still, as one just like today’s silver example rumbled by me on a particularly sunny day last week, the thought crossed my mind that they were very undeserving of their lack of respect. V8 week offers us the opportunity, then, to take a peek at the alternative to the Z M Roadster and the Boxster S:

Wednesday Wheels: The Best For Your BMW

Wednesday Wheels: The Best For Your BMW

We’re going to try out another new feature we’re going to call “Wednesday Wheels” here at GCFSB.com. If you’re like us, you have a passion for all aspects of cars, and one of the favorite items to change, replace or refinish are a car’s wheels. Today we’re going to bring you a few sets to dress up your BMW. We’ll start with some M-System 2 wheels from a 1993 M5, often called “Throwing Stars”. These arrived on the M5, the M540i, and the 850CSi but look good on many of the early 1990s BMWs. Got an E34 and looking for a set of wheels to dress it up? These might just be the ticket – light weight, the right OEM look, with decent looking tires and freshly refinished, this package looks like a pretty decent deal for some high quality and rare wheels:

Year: 1993
Model: M-System 2 “Throwing Stars”
Diameter: 17″
Width: 8″
Bolt Pattern: 5 x 120
Offset: ET 20
Condition: Refinished

I have for sale a spare set of OEM BMW 17″ M System II Throwing Star wheels that were removed from my 1993 BMW M5. The size of the wheels is 17″ x 8″. The wheels were completely refinished professionally by the local wheel shop The lips were machined and clear coated. The centers and inner barrel were painted in OE black paint. The throwing star covers were stripped down to the bare metal and repainted in the original silver finish and clear coated. I also removed the old fading center roundel stickers and replaced them with new OEM stickers. The wheels are perfectly true and balanced. There are NO bends, dents or cracks.

1991 BMW M3

1991 BMW M3

Care to roll the dice? From what I can tell, this 1991 BMW M3 appears to be an Evo-spec car, though it is not listed as such. The red trim, graphite wheels, spoiler lip and claim of 215 hp all fit in with the Evolution model. Amongst the already expensive world of E30 M3s, the Evolution models carry extra clout and command more money. Either way, these M3s are continuing to increase in value with seemingly little regard to condition, location, and sometimes even originality. Today’s 1991 example looks Knight Rider ready with it’s black-out look and red accent trim:

Year: 1991
Model: M3
Engine: 2.3 liter inline-4
Transmission: 5-speed manual

I question, in some regard at least, what “devout” BMW M3 enthusiast would put such a car up for sale and start the bidding at a high point despite even higher mileage; but then offer so precious few details and poor pictures. Even so, the car appears to be in good shape given the mileage, so it’s possible that it was well maintained. The engine is listed as rebuilt, which if done properly saves the future owner $10,000 plus in bills. With lots of miles already on the ticker, this won’t be a museum quality car, which leaves you free to add some more of your own (s)miles. That’s good news with a car like the M3, since they were meant to be driven and not parked. While darker colors aren’t my favorite on the E30, the contrast of the wheels and red striped trim give the car a unique feel that some of the earlier graphite cars fail to achieve.…

V8 Week: 1990 Audi V8 Quattro

V8 Week: 1990 Audi V8 Quattro

The Audi V8 quattro; where do I begin? Few cars that I’ve owned have cost me as much, caught fire, had the throttle stick open, had all of the window lower and sunroof open in a rain storm, were in the shop more for fixes, suffered brake failure, suffered power steering failure, and randomly filled with water. But, few cars that I’ve owned have generated as many smiles and kept me wanting more. Call it masochism if you’d like, but I really enjoyed my V8 quattro (especially in hindsight). This was the car that revolutionized the large executive sedan market and set the blueprint not only for most larger future Audis, but even those of its’ competitors. It was also (arguably, but in my mind) the best looking and last hurrah of the Type 44 platform. Headlights, hood, grill, bumpers, flares and lower sills left the V8 looking decidedly more aggressive than the 200 had been, but also more modern.

To match those looks, Audi built an all-aluminum 4-cam high revving V8, coupled to the company’s first automatic capable of working with the quattro drive train. Utilizing a multi-clutch center differential and a Torsen rear differential, the V8 was surprisingly less nose heavy than the 200 had been which resulted in out of the box better handling, especially at higher speeds. Audi was even able to utilize these cars in shockingly stock form (minus some trick cranks) to win the DTM Championship against the venerable M3s and 190E 16V Cosworths. The car underwent several changes in it’s short lifespan, gaining a manual option in the U.S. in 1991 only and new colors, climate control and greater displacement in 1992. It wasn’t enough to save the V8 from Audi’s woes in the U.S., though, and by 1994 less than 100 V8 quattros were imported, leaving it a rare site on the roads then and even more rare today.…

V8 Week: 2003 Audi S8

V8 Week: 2003 Audi S8

The Audi S8; a legend in its own time. Few cars are as memorable as the movies they star in, especially when it’s a good movie with super stars. Yet talk to any enthusiast, and the words “Ronin” are usually followed by “Oh, that S8!!!.” Hard to blame them, for as great as the driving was in general in that movie, the scenes featuring the S8 chase leading to its early demise are some of the most memorable in car chase history. Despite its star power, the Audi S8 has maintained a fairly low profile in the large fast sedan category, and it’s now possible to get one of these truly special cars for not much of your hard earned money. Though their image softened between the Ronin car with its chunky Avus alloys to the end of production, arguably the best models that came to the U.S. were the last year, such as this Ming Blue 2003:

V8 Week Tuner Tuesday: 2003 BMW Alpina V8 Roadster

V8 Week Tuner Tuesday: 2003 BMW Alpina V8 Roadster

I still remember hearing the news that Alpina was going to be tuning a Z8 around 2002. “Awesome”, I thought, “this thing is going to eat Porsches for breakfast!” Imagine my shock when I found out it was going to be an automatic; I was confused and felt lost. Then, I found out they yanked the 4.9 S62 M5 powerplant out in exchange for something less powerful. It was as if Alpina had broken into my mind and destroyed my dreams – I didn’t get it. Then I saw one, and I thought “Wow, they actually made it look a little bit better”. Yes, it was only wheels, but somehow those wheels and Alpina badges were still magical and understated but hinted there was more to this car than just less horsepower and more money. Fast forward a few years and the Alpina Z8s are commanding more money than the original they were based upon. What had I missed?

Well, I missed that Alpina hadn’t just slapped some wheels onto a Z8; Alpina had completely reworked the E52 to be their own car. Yes, the tuned V8 borrowed from the B10 had a few less horsepower than the S52, but critically it had more torque, and that torque was available lower in the rev range. Alpina had also softened the suspension, which improved ride quality despite the massive 20″ wheels. Indeed, by softening the character of the Z8 slightly, Alpina had made the V8 Roadster a more enjoyable and more relaxing car. One thing they didn’t change was that bite-the-back-of-your-hand good looks. Today’s example looks stunning in black, a nice change from the very popular silver that most seemed to be painted:

V8 Week Motorsport Monday: Turner BMW/Riley M3 Race Car Pair

V8 Week Motorsport Monday: Turner BMW/Riley M3 Race Car Pair

I have to admit, I got pretty excited when we first started talking about V8 week. There are so many different cars to choose from; but, it makes “Motorsport Monday” a bit more difficult. “Why”, you say? Well, it turns out that even though most of the marques we feature use V8s in their road cars, not that many of them use them to race with. Finding an Audi DTM V8 Quattro would have been my preferred method of solving this problem, but there just aren’t that many out there for sale. The Mercedes SLS AMG GT3s and Audi R8 GT ALMSs are still a bit too new to come up on the used market, and that really only leaves one option: The BMW M3 V8. Well, at least, that’s what you would think, though the reality is that calling these Turner M3s “M3” is a bit of a stretch. Tube frame, carbon fiber bodied, M5 powered race cars that look like M3s, sure, but the reality is that these cars share only some dimensions with your road going E9x. Still, since this isn’t “M3” week, but “V8” week, I think we’ll allow them – and besides, for the asking price, you get two!

V8 Week: 2007 Audi RS4

V8 Week: 2007 Audi RS4

When we at GCFSB.com wanted to do another theme week, we really wanted to cross marques, and what better way than with a engine layout that is used pretty universally? Audi started it’s love affair with the V8 engine back in 1988-1989 with the release of the then-revolutionary V8 quattro. Boasting reasonable performance, high-class luxury, and go-anywhere in anything quattro all-wheel drive, the V8 quattro would become a cult-classic for Audi fans. Since then Audi’s V8 engine has increased slightly in displacement and sprouted more valves, but the heart of these cars has most been assisted by modern electronics that allow cars like the RS4 to pump out an incredible 420 horsepower. Though they more recently have backed away from V8 engines in an effort to gain fuel economy, Audi’s legendary RS4 V8 was shouty and sonorous at the same time, producing notes that few other engines can on the way up the tachometer. And while there are few RS4s who’s exterior match the shoutiness of the engine, today’s example of a Sprint Blue RS4 is shouty for all the right reasons:

1971 Porsche 914-4 Ginther replica

No, you’re not on the wrong day; it’s Sunday, and I’m reviewing a race car, something I’d usually leave until Motorsport Monday. But with “V8 Week” upcoming and time running out on this car’s auction, it was too good to not write up – plus, we have something special for you tomorrow. While in the past I’ve focused on some big dollar 911s, today we’re looking at a much more affordable to buy and run 914. For a long time unloved by most of the Porsche crowd, in race trim the 914 is a solid performer and hearkens back to a time when you had to drive the car yourself rather than relying on computers to do the heavy lifting. Better yet, without relying on the power of it’s bigger brethren to drag it out of corners, the 914 is a fantastic platform for you to better yourself as a driver. Like the Martini Racing RSR replica I wrote up last week, today’s 914 is a recreation of a more famous race car, this time the Richie Ginther 914-4 race cars built for West Coast Porsche and Audi:

2001 Audi A6 2.7T quattro

2001 Audi A6 2.7T quattro

We don’t often speak about future collectables at GCFSB, as it’s usually hard to tell what will end up there. This car, however, is one that I think will probably end up being more of a cult-classic than it is currently – the short lived A6 2.7 Twin Turbo 6 speed. Like it’s little-brother-with-a-bigger-attitude S4, the silky smooth yet potent V6 mated to a manual made for an entertaining sports sedan and the spiritual successor to the C4 S4/S6. In the U.S., the C5 S6 was V8 and automatic only; the RS6 was V8 and automatic only, and while you could get the V6 TT 6 speed in the Allroad, not everyone wants to float on air (*or not) in a wagon. Flying lower on the radar, like most Audis from this generation depreciation took its toll quickly and many of these were snapped up second hand and not maintained. Thus, it has become rare to see one of the 6 speed A6s come up to market in good condition, but today’s example looks great in the classic Ming Blue:

1983 Audi Coupe GT

1983 Audi Coupe GT

There was certainly a lot of interest in the 1986 Coupe GT Commemorative Edition I posted the other day. Though in rare to see color combinations and good overall condition, there were lots of questions about the car – especially at the advertised price. While we have featured many of the later aero-bumpered cars in both GT and 4000 form, we rarely get to see the original quad-headlight equipped versions come up for sale, especially in good condition. Today we have an exception to the rule with a clean 1983 Coupe GT in the desirable Mars Red often found on it’s bigger brother, the Quattro:

I’m reluctantly selling my ’83 coupe, and hoping it will find a good home. Originally sold in Georgia, where it’s spent its whole life, I am the 3rd owner. It has a clear Georgia title and comes with the original owner’s manual and warranty booklet, and even the salesman’s business card who sold it!

The car is all original, except for the paint. It was resprayed a few years ago in the original Mars Red and is in great shape cosmetically, save for a few hail dings which a paintless dent guy could iron out easily. There are also a couple of minor rust spots starting, but the car looks awesome and gets a lot of attention. It runs and drives great with a brand new battery, timing belt and water pump, and all new vacuum lines.

The interior is beautiful. The cleanest interior you’ll ever expect to see in a 1980s car. The only negatives are a cracked dash (typical), worn/cracked leather on the top of the steering wheel, and the original vinyl driver’s seat has a split in one of the seams, so the car has seat covers that are black with red stitching, which look awesome in the red car.

We’re starting a new post on Fridays that we’re going to call “10K Friday”. As the name would suggest, we’re going to try to find the best cars you can get for under or around $10,000. Like the last “Double Take” I did on two Audi S6 Avants, today’s feature is going to be a 10K double take on two of our favorite cars on the market today, the venerable E36 M3. As we’ve talked about in many prior posts, the E36 is a star on the rise.

1981 BMW M535i

1981 BMW M535i

A few years ago, the seller of the BMW 2002ti and E28 M5 we featured sold both cars in order to take better advantage of his then-new acquisition, a 1981 BMW M535i. Fast forward to today, and priorities for the seller have changed, and he’s looking to move on from this wonderfully rare example of BMW history.

The E12 M535i was a fitting bridge between BMW’s 1970 and 1980s performance model, the 3.0 CSL, and the upcoming E28 M535i and M5. More than just a gap model, though, this car featured an uprated 3.5 liter 210hp Motorsport built motor coupled to a close-ratio 5 speed with a limited slip rear differential. Outside, the Motorsport division added front and rear spoilers, while the interior received deeper bolstered Recaro seats. This particular car has been taken to the next step with many Alpina details, such as the B9 head and B7 intake. Additionally, the car features some of our favorite Alpina turbine wheels bolted to the correct Alpina-specific suspension. For the purists, the car also comes with the correct original BBS Mahle wheels and M535i stock suspension. We actually featured this specific car back in 2010, and as Aaron said at the time, this is truly a special car:

1988 BMW 635 CSi

1988 BMW 635 CSi

One of the most popular theme weeks we’ve head here at GCFSB.com was “Shark Week”, where we reviewed one of each iteration of the E24 chassis. People love the classic styling, the understated performance, and ability to gobble up miles on the highway, and the relatively low entry price. They’re all the makings for an enjoyable classic that is affordable, too! With prices of the M models and every E30 made on the rise, these E24s are still good value. While most enthusiasts lust after the M6 and the legendary S38 powerplant, the reality is that for most of us, the less complicated and less expensive to maintain M30 found in the 635 CSi among others is a smarter option. Production ended in 1989 and these cars were lightly updated mid-88 with revised headlights and bumper covers, such as we see on this sharp white 1988 model:

The classic “shark” or “sharknose” body style, chassis code E24, which is often heralded as the most beautiful of all vintage BMWs, had a very long production run from 1976 until 1989. Unfortunately, the 6-series cars for the United States market were crippled with significantly reduced power in addition to ugly and bulky padded bumpers up until the 1988 model which featured revised aerodynamic “world” bumpers and an engine upgrade that boosted power up to match the European specification car. These revised and very desireable post 1988 cars were then discontinued the very next year in 1989 and virtually all the cars imported to the US were optioned with the Automatic Transmission. This car has the best and rarest possible combination, the final body style, final upgraded engine, Manual Transmission, nearly all factory options, a full service history including original manuals and window sticker, we believe this car to be in original condition and completely unmolested.

1995 Audi S6 Avant 2.5 Stroker

1995 Audi S6 Avant 2.5 Stroker

It’s no secret that both the Audi 200 20V Quattro Avants and the Audi S6 Avants have a cult following in the U.S. Whenever we feature one, they draw a lot of attention, and rightly so, as they’re great cars that offer a combination of speed, practicality, style and luxury that few cars are able to match. They also happen to be one of the most durable German cars to come stateside, with few seeing under 200,000 miles at this point. Generally found in a shade of green, pearl or black, occasionally one comes up in a harder to find (and to me, more desirable) shade, such as today’s Silver on Grey 1995 S6:

Description:
Runs perfectly, great fun. I did not build this car, hence I don’t know everything about it, but I’ve been driving it for the last 30K miles. It was built, the story goes (I cannot confirm, but the title I got with it does confirm the name), by Peter Blaser, who apparently built custom Audi rally cars for a living, for his wife, who apparently didn’t like it. I hear that the idea wasn’t to get the most power possible, but to get a more tractable S6 for the street, hence the stroke increase. I think it was a little much for her, as it’s still quite high-strung and certainly makes well over 300bhp, though I don’t know how much. It’ll do a 5.85sec 0-60 as measured by GTech, with my less-than-perfect driving, running 18psi of boost (it’ll do much more, but I don’t want to take any chances).
