No-reserve 1990 Audi V8 Quattro for sale

Before the Audi got the A1-8 nomenclature going strong, their non-sequential nomenclatures were a little more confusing, but the cars were no less awesome for their day. The V8 eventually became the A8, but still was a big ol’ sedan with a stout 3.6L V8 with 250hp and Quattro all-wheel drive. Not up to today’s monster-horsepower standards, but was good for the day. Today’s example has 146k miles on the clock and looks clean inside and out. With a no-reserve auction, this could be a cheap way into some big German luxury.

1990 Audi V8 Quattro for sale on eBay with no reserve

An enthusiastic but straight-forward description from the seller:

Now here is a rare one. Just traded, here is a 1990 Audi V-8 Quattro and this one will amaze you. Right off the get go I’m gonna tell you that you won’t find a better running or better looking Audi regardless of the year. Mechanically you can’t fault the car for anything whatsoever as the V8 motor is quiet and dry, the automatic shifts perfectly, there are no puddles under the car and this one is as comfortable going down the road as you could want. Tight as a drum, no squeaks or rattles and tracks straight as a die. The odometer reads 146k and the title reads exempt by federal law as the car is over 10 years old. The body doesn’t have a dent of any consequence and there isn’t a speck of rust anywhere either on it or under it and the original black paint is in excellent shape and this car has not been buffed or waxed and it still looks fantastic. All the buttons work except the drivers side rear window but the window motor is fine as it tries hard but the window is taped in the up position and if that stops you from bidding on this one, shame on you. The interior has never seen a cigarette so there are no bad smells and the genuine leather seats should by all rights be cracked or split but that is not the case here as the leather is in beautiful condition with no rips or tears, a fresh and clean dash, carpets and headliner and a trunk that looks un used. If you were looking for a car that will offer all the luxury of a much later model and you didn’t want to pay a ton of money for a luxury sedan, here is a car that will always be worth whatever you pay for it now as long as you maintain it the way the original owner did and this one will be sold with no reserve so thanks for looking and good luck with the auction.

Cleanliness and reasonable miles make this a nice car. A no-reserve auction makes this a potential steal. Sitting just over $1k with 2 bids and 3 days left, someone could be looking good for less than 10% of this car’s sticker price. Anything less than $5k and I think the buyer will be very happy.

2001 Audi S8 for sale

Within a couple of hours this past weekend, I drove past a manufacturer-plated, not-yet-for-sale 2012 S8 several times. With some extreme antennas and wires attached and two guys sitting inside examining a laptop, it must have been testing some manner of new equipment. Pushing the envelope of what big sedans can be is nothing new for the S8, and it made me think back to the original, Ronin-famed D2 S8 with it’s aluminum space frame and good-for-the-time 335hp 4.2-liter V8. The progression of S8s have been fantastic, but not to the extent where the original has lost much of its cache. Sure, it doesn’t have a V10 or twin-turbo V8 and is a couple hundred horsepower shy of those engines, but it still looks great and must still be a hoot to drive. So, while you could spend over $100k on the 2012 D4 (when it comes), or $50-70k for a used D3, you could get today’s D2 S8 in classic silver for under $9k.

2001 Audi S8 for sale on eBay


Seller’s Description:

Vision Custom Cars is pleased to offer you this 2001 Audi S8. You can own this car for a mere fraction of its original price.

I drove this car about 50 miles and noticed no problems with brake fade, no odd noises, and no blown speakers and no odd shakes or electrical issues of any kind. We serviced the car, detailed it, and took pics. All accessories worked well and the car on the whole seemed to run out exceptionally well. You could definitely tell it was well cared for. When I returned and checked it out in the shop I found no additional issues. The brakes seemed to have plenty of life left and the matching set of Michelin tires look to have plenty of life left on them as well.

The Good:

extra clean car – no rust – awesome color combo – leather seats with a ton of adjustments – great bose stereo – all aluminum lightweight chassis/body – just serviced and needs nothing – beautiful Audi – priced low! – xenon lights – rear & side sun shades – park sensors – tinted windows – all the toys! – Navigation

The Bad:

the rear sunshade sticks, other than that there really is nothing to note on the car, there is far less wear than normal for the miles. This car was VERY well cared for.

… This car qualifies for up to a 4 Year Warranty!

Provided the seller is being honest, having a rear sunshade the sticks be the only problem is incredible. 170k miles is a lot, but the bottom of the market for these can’t be much lower. A 4-year warranty would make it that much sweeter (but probably make the final price a bit more sour). Buy it for a winter cruiser and sell it for the same next year. Or drive it until until the wheels fall off. Either way, it’s a good price for a luxurious, quick, and well taken care-of sedan that looks like 10 times the asking price.

Clean 1983 Audi UrQuattro for sale

Today we have an UrQ that has been taken care of since it was born. Owned by car dealership owners and service managers, it’s one of the nicest and least-molested examples I’ve seen in a while. It comes in clean original black with Audi graphics and just-right Ronal wheels; no 17s needed to look badass here. Each owner has meticulously kept maintenance records, and while almost 30 years and 140k miles have left it short of perfection, it’s a darn nice example of an increasingly rare car.

1983 Audi Ur Quattro for sale on eBay


A thorough history showing a beloved car:

Hello, I have for sale an exceptional 1983 Audi Ur Quattro. This particular example is Montego Black metallic, with a chocolate brown leather interior. I have personally owned this vehicle since 1997. I am the fourth owner and purchased it with 91,000 miles on the odometer. It currently has about 139,000 miles and is still going strong. This URQ was originally delivered to Porsche Audi North in Dublin, Ohio. It was placed into service on 8/18/83. As far as I can determine, this URQ was delivered on 3/29/84 as a lease to the owner of Midwestern VW. “Bob Fergus was a successful Volkswagen dealer and the local importer for Ohio, Missouri and Kentucky. Furthermore, he was well known as a privateer in motor racing. He took part in SCCA events, driving cars of various marques like Siata, MG and Austin-Healey. Later on he also campaigned Ferraris.” The second owner bought the car when it came off lease in 1987. The third owner who purchased the car in 1993 was a service manager at Byers Imports in Columbus, Ohio, so he spared no expense or time in maintaining the car. Every conceivable record of work done to the car from the first owner, second, third, and myself is included in the sale. This is a truly comprehensive and complete list of maintenance history documented with original receipts and an organized word document of what work was done, how much it cost, by what shop, and at what mileage. It is apparent through all of this maintenance history that the car was always very well taken care of at no expense. Along with this substantial documentation are all manuals including warranty book, owner’s manual, radio guide, and an official factory repair manual. Further factory repair procedures are also available which were originally meant for dealership use.

All necessary oil changes have been completed in a timely fashion during my ownership with Syntec and the correct Audi o.e.m. filters. Recently, in the past few years other work done has included but is not limited to: new misc. hoses and tubing, radiator recore and fluid flush, rebuilt interior switch lights, oxs sensor replacement, n.o.s. radio replacement, plugs, wires, cap, and rotor, driver window regulator replacement, various rubber isolator mounts replaced, c.v. boot replaced, manifold redecked with new studs, replace timing belt, tensioners, water pump, seals, valves adjusted, fuel injector seals, etc, etc.
The car is extremely close to stock with the only known up-grades being the desirable wider Audi ronal wheels, uprated Audi 5000 turbo, period performance chip, slight tint, and Stebro stainless exhaust sans cat. That is it. I have tried to keep things original and period as much as possible, sometimes a frustrating and time consuming hobby…
…Items of concern that do not necessarily require immediate attention are a probable need for a new passenger front disc (mild metallic chatter on braking), the a.c. does not hold freon (although all the parts are there), the power door locks no longer work (although the parts are there), cruise control does not work, the diff panel light does not light up, and the e-brake does not function. Sporadically there is a hot-start issue. Body-wise you can see the items I will call out – surface rust on the sill of both sides (has not progressed in 10 years so I never fixed it), paint flaking on rear driver wheel lip (caused by previous owner’s large wheel choice), rust on the leading edges of both the trunk lid and hood lip (n.o.s. hood, one steel deck lid, and one fiberglass deck lid included in sale for replacement), and a slight gouge in the bumper corner in a parking lot mishap.I believe that this small scrape and a driver’s side door dent accounts for both “issues” reported on the vehicle history. Structurally, the wheel tubs, shock towers, and underside of the car show rust-free. The URQ shows better than average general wear for its age and mileage. The car was never driven in snow, but I definitely drove in the rain (it is a Quattro after all). Please take a look at the pictures and videos in the listing and on my imageshack account for a complete tour of the URQ. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I currently have the car registered in Michigan with a clean Michigan title in my name. If you would like to inspect the car in person, that can be arranged.
Other desirable extras which come with the purchase of the URQ are a beautiful, rare fiberglass factory replacement deck with all trim included, a steel deck lid, extra spoiler, n.o.s. hood with the e-coat still on it, new window regulator and misc. regulator parts, extra tail lamps and light bar, and three containers full of misc. parts both new and used, an extra spare tire, original roll-up tool kit, and two keys.
This URQ was always stored winters, but thoroughly enjoyed in the no-salt months. I am selling now because I do not get the chance to use it as much as I would like, and would appreciate it going to a new home. Thank you.

This is a clean, well-looked-after example of a car that changed the automotive landscape forever. I’m actually a little sad that it’s never been driven in the snow. It has a few spots that would need attention before it was 100% perfect, but it seems like a really great driver that could keep you happily in Audi world for a while. Though small, the amount of work needed makes me surprised to see the 17 bids pushing it up to $10k already. I would have guessed high single-digit thousands, but I guess we’re nearing the time for the Quattro to join it’s box-fendered 80s brethren like the E30 M3 and Delta Integrale as high-dollar rarities. The price is also a testament to a well-written and complete ad, illustrating that this Quattro has never been neglected, and hopefully never will be.

1985 Audi 4000S for sale

Here’s a model we haven’t posted too many of. It’s no speed-demon, but the 4000S is a handsome sedan full of 80s style. Family-owned since new, the son of the original owner has given it some modern Jersey style. The overdone stereo and powdercoated engine parts are a bit much, but reflect that this car has been loved, not abused. It’d be even better with the 4000CS’s 2.2L engine instead of the S’s 1.8, but if you’re looking for power, start thinking about engine swaps. 210k miles down but with tons of new parts and a beautiful exterior, this is a nice vintage Audi.

Reader-suggested 1995 Ur-S6 Avant for Sale

Thanks go to reader Larry for bringing this first-gen S6 to our attention. S6s have been on my mind this week since I saw a beefy-looking C5 S6 Avant on the street the other day. With the same plenty-powerful 4.2L V8 as the contemporary S4, the combination of muscle, utility, and AWD makes it an appetizing choice. The original S6, itself a re-badged Ur-S4, had a Euro-only “S6 Plus” option with 4.2L V8 , but the main engine was the classic 2.2L I5 putting out 230hp, not bad at all for 1995. Extra sexy as a 6-speed black avant, today’s listing could be a very fun Q-ship.

1995 Audi S6 Avant with 95,730 miles. 5cyl 20vturbo (AAN) gasoline engine with Stage1-Chip and a 6-speed maual (EDU) transmission. 5/95 build date, Black on black leather, OEM Recaro seats, 50% window tint, European Headlights with HIDs and city lights, 3rd row seat, all Seat heaters working, all windows & sunroof working, Heater and A/C working. No rips or tears in seats or side bolsters.

Samco hoses, 034 MAF hose, 034 Engine and Transmission mounts, Timing belt and waterpump replaced at 75K.

Very well maintained. Mostly OEM Audi parts used.

New Cam & Crank sensor, rear Camber links and steering damper. New OEM O2 Sensor and MAF sensor. New V/C gskt, Coolant reservoir, coolant Temp sensor, Auxillary waterpump, front subfram bushings, Parking brake cables and brake hoses. New L/F window regulator. New Sachs clutch along with 6-speed install at 79K.

Major Service done at 90K with Spark plugs, Air&Pollen filter, Fuel filter. All fluids changed incl. Brake Fluid, Coolant, Trans&Diff oil. New Conti Pro Contact tires, Alignment and 4 New Koni shocks installed at 90K. LOF , new wipers and rear brake pads done at 95K (front pads at 50% remaining)

Free extras include a full size spare tire, new starter and some spare parts.

Vehicle is sold as is, no existing warranty. Scratch on L/F fender and rear lid, 2 door dings.

It appears to be very well taken care-of with less than 100k miles,lots of solid maintenance taken care of along with a chip and 6-speed swap (a Euro factory option). Rein in the ride height a little bit and swap some later-model Audi wheels (C5 RS6 or late-model larger S4 Avus, perhaps?) and this will be a responsible all-weather wagon for the enthusiast. Reserve not met at $5,500 with 5 days left. I’d go in for $8k or less.

Italian Audi Insanity

One of our readers from Italy was kind enough to call attention to a trio of astonishing Audi Quattros for sale online in Italy. We’ve posted some pretty nice Quattros in the past, but these three turn the four-ringed insanity to 11.

First, we have an Audi Quattro Treser hardtop convertible. “A what!?” you say? I know… though I featured a Treser coupe a while back, I had not seen Treser’s convertible creation before. The coupe’s standard hardtop was absolutely mundane compared to the folding weirdness of this Quattro. Walter Treser was the head of development for the UrQuattro and went on to create his own aftermarket Audi business; the success of the parts business allowed him to get even more creative with things like this pre-Benz SLK convertible hardtop. An elegant convertible with the top down, things get a bit weirder when you push the Autobot button… it kind of looks like a Subaru Brat with a tonneau cover. Funky styling aside, I can’t argue with the rarity and inherent coolness in having a coachbuilt UrQuattro. I can argue that there are better places to spend ~$65k though…

We’ll turn the needle up closer to 11 with this next Quattro, another Treser, and a cabriolet at that; but why not throw in a massive widebody kit and some Testerossa-style side strakes for good measure? Instead of a brat, this looks like a stepside truck. With the same funky 2+2 top up, 2-seater top down system, you can bring the family along, as well as hide them when it gets nice out and you need some Italian bird to notice your Ferraudi. Luckily the 2.1 I5 has been brought up to spec too, pumping out 340hp over only 25k km. 78 grand for some truly rare strange.

1985 Widebody Treser Convertible Audi Quattro for sale on automobile.it

Here’s where I say the amp went past 11 and got all Marty-in-Doc’s-Garage on me, a perfect red Sport Quattro, 1,050km (652 miles!) on a 220-hp S2 swap. While cool, the Tresers seem cut out for a specific kind of drug dealer, whereas the only thing the Sport Quattro is addicted to is winning. Decipher the German/Italian ad if you can; something about the Sport’s trick Kevlar roof and some other mild mods. The only way this car could kill it any harder would be if Hans Dahlback himself had modified it. 220hp should be plenty of fun, but the S2 can easily attain much more. Lively on that tiny wheelbase, the pitbull of the Quattro family.

1985 Audi Sport Quattro for sale on automobile.it

The range of $65-$80k for these things makes me think either a) These are even rarer in the rest of the world than I realized or b) cars are extremely expensive in Italy due to taxes and whatnot. I’m guessing it’s a mixture of both. Regardless, three very cool and unique takes on the UrQuattro (though I could only drive the red one).

2004 Audi S4 Avant for sale

The B6 S4 series is not my favorite. More pedestrian than the following B7, more bloated than the preceding B5, and not even close to matching the sex appeal of the newest B8, passing B6s usually makes me sigh in disappointment, wishing it were any other S4. It takes a whole lot of “doing it right” to get me excited about one. Luckily, our seller today did it as right as one can with a B6, checking all the right boxes to take this 2004 S4 from bland suburbanite to badass sleeper.

[X] Avant [X] 6-speed [X] thoughtful performance upgrades [X] BBS CH

From the seller (who sounds like my kind of car guy):

Up for sale is my 2004 Audi S4 Avant (wagon). This is one of the few with the 6speed manual transmission. If you’re not set on whether or not you want an S4 Avant, let me give you a bit of a sales pitch on it. First off, the wagons are cool. I know that’s not much of a sales pitch, but they look far more modern than the sedans, hold their values so much better, and simply make more sense. Unfortunately, they didn’t sell many. So getting your hands on one can be tedious if you have any other prerequisites.

So what makes these cars cool? Well, they are all wheel drive sports cars with high revving V8s that happen to hold 5 people and all their luggage. They sound AMAZING too, especially set up like mine. Audi’s interior quality is second to none too, and mine has been babied. All the window switches feel as if new still.

What makes MINE special is this:
It’s been meticulously maintained, and we’ve got the service records to show. Also, it has a good list of upgrades that allow for higher power and torque, as well as better fuel economy. The car is making somewhere around 400HP now, and has an incredible amount of torque too. All work has been done by European Auto Garage in Knoxville, TN.
• JHMotorsports Engine Tuning Software
• JHMotorsports Intake Manifold Spacers
• JHMotorsports 4:1 Center Differential Upgrade
• JHMotorsports Stage 4 Clutch and Lightweight Flywheel Combo
• Apikol Polyurethane Rear Differential Mount
• Apikol Polyurethane Front Engine “Snub” Mount
• JHMotorsports Complete Solid Short Throw Shifter with all add-ons
• JHM Weighted Delrin Shift Knob
• 034 Motorsports Transmission Mount
• Hawk HPS Brake Pads – Street – Front
• Hawk HPS Brake Pads – Street – Rear
• Alcantara Headliner & Pillars (See Picture)
• K40 Radar Detection System
• Bridgestone RE11 Tires
• BBS CH Wheels – 19″
• H&R Lowering Springs
• 2.5″ Magna Flow Dual Exhaust (Resonators Removed)
• Powdercoated Valve Covers (See Picture)

In addition to these, recent maintenance (past 10k miles) includes:
• Replacing center differential fluid and rear differential fluid with Redline Products
• Religiously replacing oil and filter every 3k miles. This week, it was upgraded to Motul Ultra-Synthetic
• New Bosch Platinum (4 electrode) spark plugs
• New Coolant Expansion Tank
• Every two oil changes, it gets a new air filter
• Every three oil changes, it gets a new cabin filter
• New Valve Cover Gaskets
• ALL EIGHT Coil Packs – Upgraded to the new type Audi has
• Coolant Expansion Tank Lid
• Lower Radiator Hose Replaced
• Water Temperature Sensor Replaced
• Engine Front Main Seal Replaced
• Intake Manifold Gasket Replaced
• Bridgestone RE11 tires have roughly 4000 miles on them.
• Brake pads have roughly 6000 miles on them

I love it. For the first time ever, it’s B6-ness almost enhances it, putting it just low enough under the radar that the de-resonated near-RS4 power can suckerpunch unsuspecting passers by. The owner has taken extremely good care of it, not abusing it like so many other “STAGE 11 S4” tuners for sale on eBay. This is a stealth family-hauling hammer, the best the B6 can be. With about 90k miles on it, this is a great deal if it stays under $20k.

Low-mileage 2003 Audi RS6 for sale

Before Audi started RS-ifying every model it could, they had a tacit policy of only letting one model of RS out at a time, and rarely at that: first the venerable RS2 in 1994-1995, then the sexy RS4 in 2000-2001, then breaking the chain of Avants and Eurocentrism with the understated monster RS6 finally gracing our shores from 2002 to 2004. This was no quickened divorcee’s TT or beefed-up college student’s A3. While I am glad Audi is making those cars (it’s better than not), the RS6 comes from a purer time when hyper-powered civilian cars were the exception and not the rule and it, along with the E39 M5 and E55, terrified unsuspecting civilians. When I head back to the island I grew up on, I still take the long way home to see if the RS6 is parked outside that one house.

The ad is mainly dealer exclamation points and stats any good German car fan should know by heart, but the beauty is in the numbers. 450hp, 4.6 seconds 0-60, 56k miles, Buy-It-Now at $27.9k. 56k miles is pleasantly low for an 8 year-old driver’s car, and this would be one hell of a ride if you can snag it around $25k. It’s in the perfect hue of Daytona Gray Pearl, and while the white leather is slightly garish, I’d take it.

Just truly one of my favorite sedans ever made, and while the typical Audi maintenance will probably catch up with you, it’s still dangerously close to “affordable” in my book. I want it.

How many miles is too many? Audi Ur-Quattro for sale

In a meeting with a sports psychologist yesterday, he brought up the concept of “re-framing,” and how important it is to be resilient and positive. This can be challenging with cars, especially older European ones. When the list of things fixed starts taking up pages, it can test ones loyalty to their car. But then fixing it, helping it get healthy and last a little longer, can be extremely rewarding. So sure, 193k miles on a rare rally car may seem like a lot, and the “this this and this fixed, needs a little of this and that and the some more this” can be intimidating, but we can re-frame this situation: This is a really clean Ur-Quattro, progenitor of the box-fender, all-wheel drive and turbo madness, and it’s still running pretty strong. Each thing you inevitably fix on it is more of a donation to the Awesome Old German Car Foundation than the money pit.

The description is a bit dense, but if you feel like seeing the creeping signs of age in the attention needed, check out the link.

Despite my best efforts, I’m an optimist. I truly think owning and slowly improving this car would be more rewarding than frustrating. The exterior is truly gorgeous here; it’s begging for some attention in the interior and maybe a 20V swap down the line. Bid up to a reserve not-met at $4,550 at time of writing, if it stays below $7,000 I’m going to put this on the “good deal” list.

2000 Audi RS4 Avant, 1 of 4 in the USA

I preface this entry by stating that my favorite estate vehicle of all time is the Audi RS2. This high performance version of the Audi 90 estate was built in the same factory as the legendary Mercedes-Benz W124 500E/E500 and had some tasty Porsche styling bits to compliment it’s 2.2 liter, 20 valve 5 cylinder turbo engine. As a follow up, Audi introduced the A4 based RS4 in 1999, but never imported this vehicle to the US. Or did they…..?

I’ve personally sat in this car and driven it and it is unbelievable. He bought 3, sold off one back in 2001 and currently has two of them (his and hers). This vehicle has not been beaten on any whatsoever (couple are in their early 70’s) just true Audi enthusiasts. Vehicle holds a clean Colorado title and is located in Aspen, CO.

As much as I like this RS4, the $49,000 asking price is too high in my opinion, even if a value on such a rare car is hard to place. At this price point, I simply couldn’t drive this car in good conscience on a regular basis. If it were about $15,000 cheaper, this would be a seriously tempting piece. One thing is certain though, the cool factor for this car is off the charts and you’ll never see yourself coming and going on the street, unless RS4 clones suddenly become all the rage.
