2001 Audi Allroad 2.7T 6-speed

The C5 Audi Allroad, a car that can’t be talked about without someone bringing up the photo of MacGyver being thwarted by one. Now a punching bag by many in the automotive world, I personally don’t think it is worse than any other German car that is over 10 years old. Yes, a twin-turbo V6 and air suspension do make things a little more complicated, but if you stay on top of potential issues, I don’t see the a giant problem with owning one of these. Fortunately, the owner selling this 2001 outside of Cleveland gave this green machine all the love it needs — and maybe even a little more.

Millennial Green: 2000 Audi A4 1.8T quattro, 2001 Audi Allroad 2.7T and 2001 Audi S8

Following up on Paul’s Goodwood Green Pearl Effect RS4 and the Aquafresh duo of Ruf and Eurovan from yesterday, I wanted to take a look at some of the more rare greens from Audi in the early 2000s. Greens have all but disappeared from the color pallet over at VAG, but they featured some fetching shades a decade and a half ago. However, unlike the ubiquitous Emerald Mica or Cactus Green Pearl Effect that seemed everywhere in the mid-1990s, these shades are seldom seen in the wild. Which is your favorite?

2002 Audi allroad 2.7T Audi Exclusive Olympic Edition 6-speed

It’s not too often that I get genuinely surprised by something, but when our reader John altered me to a Fortitude link to a special allroad, I really had to take a moment to soak in what I was seeing. To be honest, it was not the first time that I had seen a Sprint Blue allroad – but I had always assumed that they were either resprays or one of just a few very special Audi Exclusive colored examples such as the Tropical Green one kicking around the web a few months back. But this was more than that, and I was glad to learn the history of the special run. This car is one of the 10 “Olympic” allroads that were used as promotional tools in the 2002 Salt Lake City games. This isn’t the first time that Audi supported the Games – notably, in 1988 they had some promotional 5000s in Calgary. But the shade of this car is what made it special, as in 2002 Audi was still pushing Nogaro as its fast blue hue. Sprint Blue would change that with the B7 and C6 chassis, but Audi Exclusive painted these cars the fetching shade half a decade earlier. On top of that, this car has been converted to a 6-speed manual. The want is strong in this one…

10K Friday Colorful Carriers: Vibrant Wagon-off

Did someone say fast 5-doors? Amen! The bells on the Church of the Heavenly 5 Doors are ringing this Friday, and I’ve rounded up a unique quartet of very fast and very colorful wagons to consider, each around or below $10,000. We’ve got 5 turbos, 25 cylinders and 1,200 horsepower worth of people carriers here – which is the winner for you?

C5 Avant-off: Allroad 2.7T 6-speed v. S6

We’ve recently had a good string of Audi Avants up here, including a rare converted 6-speed S6 Avant. Oddly, as several people noted we’ve seen a fair amount of these converted V8 cars come up for sale quickly after the conversion. Economically, that doesn’t make much sense; if selling was your goal, replacement with a used automatic would likely be a better route than going through the expensive swap. What’s even more perplexing is that the similar 01E-equipped allroad V6 2.7T (and its running mate B5 S4 Avant 6-speed) are highly sought and loved cars. So I brought two together today in rare color combinations; if you were going to pick a C5 Avant, which is the one you’d go for?

10K Friday Family Truckster Edition

I got to laughing the other day during a National Lampoon marathon on television when the memorable “Family Truckster” came onto the screen. The inclusion of that heavily ornamented and modified car in the movie was truly a stroke of genius, but once again a sad reminder that many of the wagons that previously were available to us are gone, replaced by crossovers, “GT”s, or SUV/SAV vehicles. Of course, because of this you don’t have to go back very far in time to find great deals on the last generation of premium 5-doors. Today, with that in mind, I’ve rounded up a set of all-wheel drive sporty wagons to consider – which is the winner?

Wagon Week 10K Friday: Which Road would you take?

509

The C5 Audi Allroad was one of the better wagons Audi has brought over to the United States in recent memory. The car was available with initially only the 2.7 twin-turbo V6 out of the S4 and A6 2.7T, but later was also available with a 4.2 V8 making for a smooth operator. What differentiated the Allroad from the S6 was a neat package; out of the box, these cars came with height adjustable air suspension that made for both impressive ground clearance and sporty handling in the twisties. Today I’ve cooked up an interesting comparison between the two more desirable versions of the car; the 2.7T mated to the 6 speed manual and the V8 4.2 model. Let’s start with the manual:

2013 Audi allroad

As an Audi enthusaist and a wagon lover, it’s no surprise that I was excited when Audi of America announced the return of the allroad. Like many others I was hesitant to see that it was being released on the A4 platform rather than the larger A6 platform of the previous generation, but once I saw it, all reservations went out the window. Seeing the allroad was love at first sight. The stance, the flares, the grille, and the lines make this one of the most beautiful estate cars on the market.

Audi did it right this time. Anyone familiar with the original allroad knows that they were riddled with problems between the 2.7T and the air suspension. The new allroads save all of the fancy technology for where it counts….the cockpit. The allroad uses the same 2.0l turbo four as the rest of the A4 family coupled to the silky smooth 8-speed tiptronic gearbox, and of course Quattro AWD.

Where the allroad differs from your standard A4 Avant is in the styling with stainless steel front and rear skid plates and offroad inspired fender flares. To complete the offroad capable look, the allroad has a full 7 inches of ground clearance. This car can certainly walk the walk if the owner was so inclined.

This beautiful Phantom Black over black leather allroad for sale in Atlanta is a smoking deal on a lightly used SUV alternative.

2005 Audi Allroad 4.2

In a market where large SUVs still reign supreme, the Audi Allroad is a breath of fresh air.  In 2001 Audi brought the Allroad to the US market as an addition to the C5 A6 roster. Compared to the regular A6, the Allroad featured height adjustable air suspension, allowing for increased ground clearance; larger wheels with all-terrain tires, and the trademark unpainted body cladding. These options coupled with Audi’s legendary Quattro AWD, transformed the A6 in to a station wagon that was as capable off road as a Land Rover, while still keeping its road manners.

This Allroad for sale in New Jersey represents the top of the line for Audi Avants in 2005. With all available options, the stunning black paint, and the desirable 4.2 V8 this car represents the pinnacle of the Allroad. In 2013 Audi is releasing the A4 version of the Allroad after an 8 year absence. Cars like this will offer a good option for buyers that love the new one, but don’t love the mid $40K price tag.

2005 Audi Allroad 4.2 on eBay.com

HERE is a 2005 Audi Allroad 4.2L V8 Fully Loaded Avant!!!
This car has every option available. It is a one owner car that has been garaged its entire career. Allroad owners hate to let it go but with 4 other cars in the house; it is time to part ways. I recently changed two tires and have two brand new Pirelli P Zero tires that will be sold with the car. 245/45/18 and have a set of 17 inch wheels with Blizzack snow tires that is available if buyer wants them.

This car is LOADED. Navigation, rear parking sensors, MP3 SD Card slots, Fully adjustable air supspension (recently just spent $3500 fixing air shock and CDV Boot) 6 disc CD Changer in trunk, BOSE Surround sound system, XM Radio, Full Climate Control, Front and Rear Heated seats, recently new Allroad Weather Mats, Xenon headlights, factory painted door sills (other Audis have plastic on the trim on the sides, this model was painted to the bottom) rear window shade, cargo net, fold down rear seats, Power sunroof with tilt and shade, auto dimming and power folding mirrors, HEATED steering wheel (my favorite) four link front suspension… the list goes on!

2004 Audi Allroad just in time

I’m back near Seattle, Washington for Thanksgiving with my family and landed just as a snow storm blanketed the Pacific Northwest. While the front-wheel drivers are still making it around, it’s looking like they’ll be rendered inadequate very soon. With this in mind, my thoughts turned to all-wheel drive, namely Quattro and what I would love as a serious winter machine, the Audi Allroad. Their faults are known, but with great styling and impressive versatility, I’m willing to overlook them.

As I mentioned before, these cars are not without their flaws. A friend’s had the air suspension go totally haywire, as well as the various electrical afflictions this generation of Audis can have. What made this one stick out to me was the lack of miles and the fact that the air suspension has already been addressed. It’s apparent (and stated) that this car has been well taken care of and is ready to go for the new owner. Maintenance down the road will obviously be Audi-rific, but I think this is about as good a place to start as any when it comes to the Allroad. Apparently listed at $16,950 at the dealership, it’s on eBay at $9k now with a Buy-it-Now of $13,900. 4-wheel drive luxury pulling up to Depreciation Station, wish I had a ticket!

As the flurries intensify, so do my dreams of dominating the snowy roads in an Allroad, empty except for a few Subarus, Audis, and a couple overzealous SUVs stuck in the ditch.
