Theme Week: 2003 Audi S6

For years if you owned an Audi S car, you had something that few knew about, and fewer owned; you were an aficianato.  The C5 Audi S6 Avant represents the point right before S cars entered the main stream radar, and became a performance staple along with BMW M, and AMG.

A true sleeper on the streets, the C5 S6 is can barely be distinguished from the A6 Avant at first glance.  Look closer, and you’ll notice the bulging aluminum front fenders, larger wheels, brushed aluminum mirrors, and aerodynamic lower door trim.  The differences are not just skin deep, the S6 boasted the all aluminum 4.2L V8 with 335bhp, 5 speed tiptronic gear box with paddle shifters, upgraded aluminum suspension, and bigger brakes.  Even with a curb weight of 2 tons, the S6 was a surprisingly nimble grocery getter.  This one owner, Ming Blue on white leather S6 for sale in Bedford, OH is a great example of utility, and performance in one package.

Theme Week: 1982 Audi Quattro

Of all the cars throughout Audi’s history, the one that made the biggest splash on the automotive scene was the Ur Quattro in 1980. Four wheel drive technology applied to a car built for the street was nothing new. Jensen was the first to market with the FF, which employed a four wheel drive system from Ferguson Research. Audi, however, perfected the all wheel drive concept for non all terrain vehicles and used competition as a showcase for the technology, winning the World Rally Constructors’ Title in 1982 and 1984. This Ur Quattro is for sale near Audi’s home of Ingolstadt, Germany.

1982 Audi Quattro on eBay Deutschland

Here in a rare Audi Ur Quattro. Built in 1982 with her original 140,000 km. Previous owner installed a new turbocharger about 25,000 km prior. The exterior paint is original spot color from Audi. The Ur has three letter entries, original letter is available. Rust is only on a sill at the seam and can be seen on the surface, otherwise I have not seen anything.

Paint still looks very good since the car was always dry in the hall. Of course there is the odd scratch or bump. Features: steel sunroof, electric windows and electric door mirrors, original radio, aluminum 8 x 15 wheels. Since the last drive the front brakes have frozen. This Ur should be taken with a trailer due to the condition of the brakes. They may be gone already but a long distance ride should be taken at your own risk. Delivery in the vicinity is possible, but please ask beforehand. Car can be seen in the vicinity of Ingolstadt. Three small, about 3-5 mm in diameter rust bubbles noticed on the roof and the side panel. Sorry it was not noticed before. The car is current being inspected due to a snapped cable under the bonnet.

Theme Week: 1995 Audi RS2

Theme Week: 1995 Audi RS2

The RS2 was built on Audi’s 80 Avant; it was Audi’s first “RS” vehicle, and the first of their long line of high-performance wagons.  The RS2 was a joint effort between Audi and Porsche, and represented some of the best efforts from both camps.

While most of the car came from the Audi parts bin, the mad scientists at Porsche transformed the 230bhp Audi 2.2l inline 5 cylinder turbo engine in to a 311bhp fire breather with the addition of bigger turbo, larger fuel injectors, a hotter cam, and remapped ECU.  The power was planted to the road through a 6 speed gear box, and Audi’s legendary quattro with locking differential.  The suspension was revised with Bilstein shocks and larger sway bars.  To bring this monster to a halt, Porsche donated the brakes from the Porsche 968 Club Sport.

These cars are extremely rare, with only 2891 examples built from 1994 to 1995.  For the longest time, to own one in North America was merely a dream for Audi enthusiasts, but that did not stop the RS2 from developing a strong cult following over here.  Luckily there are enthusiasts like the owner of this Volcano Black beauty for sale in Quebec, Canada to bring cars like this to our shores.

Theme Week: 1998 Audi Cabriolet

Theme Week: 1998 Audi Cabriolet

The Audi Cabriolet was a rather unremarkable vehicle in the history of Audi, but nonetheless one worth highlighting. Seemingly as generic as its name implies, the Cabriolet was based on the B3 chassis, which was introduced in 1987 and featured design language that would carry Audi into the next century. Sold in some markets until 2000, this 1998 example represents the last year the Cabriolet was sold new in the US market. With its 172 horsepower, 2.7 liter V6 engine mated to a four speed automatic, it never set the world on fire with performance, but it struck a restrained, handsome pose. Even though Princess Diana sported one for a while in the 1990s, few people stateside took notice of Audi’s open roofed offering, opting for more exciting versions from companies like Saab and BMW at the time. As a result, these open roofed Audis can be had for not much cash, this example for sale in Long Island being one of them.

1998 Audi Cabriolet on eBay

1998 Audi Cabriolet VIN# WAUAA88G4WN001789 Black/Tan. This a very rare super clean Audi Cabriolet with only 86k original miles. The car runs, drives and looks great. Plus it has a Power Soft Top, Leather, Wood Trim, Premium Package and more. And we just serviced (for over $1,300) the car so it’s ready to go for the summer!

I have a soft spot for the Audi Cabriolet, which most likely comes from my attraction to obscure automobiles. Most of these Cabriolets have been driven hard or scrapped by now, so it’s nice to see a clean one like this surface. While it’s missing the Audi badge on the trunk, everything else looks pretty tidy. I’d say almost $6,000 is pushing it in terms of value. About $1,000 to $1,500 less would be just about right.…

1991 Audi 200 Turbo Quattro Avant

1991 Audi 200 Turbo Quattro Avant

The Audi 100 and 200, known initially as the 5000 here in the US market, was a car ahead of its time when it debuted in 1982. With flush mounted glass, integrated bumpers and smooth body lines, this car benefitted from a low coefficient of drag. By 1990, other manufacturers had caught up, and so Audi decided to send the 200 off with a bang and dropped a 20 valve 5 cylinder turbocharged engine in it, which had 217 horsepower and was good for under seven second 0-60 times. Audi offered this engine in both the 200 sedan and Avant. At the same time this car appeared on the scene, Audi was suffering in the wake of the unintended acceleration scandal which saw it’s sales figures reach record lows in this very model year – around 12,000 cars.

There have been estimates as low as 150 of these Turbo Quattro Avants were brought into the US, some as high as 1,000. Considering some may not be roadworthy anymore, we’re dealing with a rare car here. Quite unfortunate, given how good of a performer the 200 Turbo Quattro Avant was. This particular car is for sale in Oregon and looks great in Lago Blue.

We get a constant 20mpg and have seen a best tank of freeway driving of 26mpg. The interior is in excellent shape with only some padding break down in the drivers side bolster of the drivers side sport seat.

Clean 1984 Audi 4000S Quattro For Sale

I am not an Audi guy, but I am a VW enthusiast which is kind of silly I suppose.  I have been watching this seller raffle off his Audi’s for a bit.  They are always well kept, rare, and worst of all local to me.

There may be time for me to become an Audi guy yet.  This 1984 4000S Quattro may be just the thing.

1990 VW Corrado for sale

1990 VW Corrado for sale

The Corrado is like an ex-girlfriend, the one where you romanticize the relationship and remember the great aspects, but if you try to rekindle that fire it always ends up more complicated and frustrating than seems worth it. The Corrado got amazing reviews when it came out, and is still a looker with plenty of fun factor, but it’s nearly impossible to find one that is even close to how it came off the showroom floor. They’re all either modified to the extreme or beat to hell. Perhaps, like the best ex-girlfriends, the really quality examples are tucked away and held onto with great vigor by their current boyfriends.

Today’s Corrado definitely leans towards the mod-racer end of the spectrum, but is actually looking pretty nice in the great Audi TT Aviator gray with a matching Audi 225hp 1.8T. The mod list grows and grows along the standard VW Group and aftermarket paths, but unfortunately this seller falls into the trap of keeping a little too close of tabs on his receipts. A claimed $45k invested and an $18k asking price make this ex-girlfriend, regardless of how many surgeries she’s undergone, too expensive for me.

2009 Spyker C8 Spyder

2009 Spyker C8 Spyder

While the Spyker is not a German vehicle, it has an Audi V8 and craftsmanship akin to what we are used to from the Fatherland. I thought it was about time to shed some light on this exotic. The name Spyker originated from two Dutch brothers, Jacobus and Hendrik-Jan Spijker. They founded the firm in 1880 and one of their first notable projects was the construction of the Golden Carriage used by the Dutch Royal Family to this day. In 1900, they debuted their first automobiles and three years later, they created the 60 HP, which was the world’s first four wheel drive car with a single engine and four wheel brakes. During World War I, the company manufactured airplanes and aircraft engines, similar to other contemporary manufacturers that had switched their production to military applications.

After World War I, Spyker went bankrupt and ceased production in 1922. Resurrected in 1999, the new Spyker vehicles pay homage to the company’s aircraft heritage. Their slogan is Nulla tenaci invia est via, which in Latin means “For the tenacious, no road is impassable.” The new cars were dubbed the C8 Laviolette and C8 Spyder, and employed Audi’s 4.2 liter V8. These cars are exceptionally well made, employing a great deal of old world craftsmanship in the way of quilted leather, turned aluminum and an intriguing shifter mechanism with exposed linkage. Spyker was owned and subsequently sold off by Swedish Automobile AB to North Street Capital, whose managing partner is a racing enthusiast. It is not quite clear what the future holds for Spyker, but nevertheless, these are very unique, well made vehicles. This particular 2009 Spyder presents nicely with low mileage and black accentuates the aluminum accents well.

2000 Audi RS4 Avant, 1 of 4 in the USA

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…..?

The seller states:

I’m posting this for a very good client of mine. He had 3 of these brought into the United States in 2001 and they are all legit for the USA. It was hemogenized and has a full 17 digit VIN Number. 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. Seriously enquires only please.

2004 Audi Allroad just in time

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.

1983 Audi Ur-Quattro for sale (dangerously close to me)

1983 Audi Ur-Quattro for sale (dangerously close to me)

Here’s a great way to contextualize the amazing Audi Quattro Concept unveiled at the Paris Auto Show. I work about 5 minutes from where this awesome Audi Ur-Quattro is for sale, and I at least have to go check it out (at most, lie/beg/cheat/steal to buy it). Until the Concept becomes reality, the Ur just can’t be beat when it comes to the Quattro. Straight off a Group B stage, boxed fenders and the turbo inline-5 mean serious business. Some title issues and reported damage should be investigated, but 105k miles is temptingly low for the original and irreplaceable implementation of Quattro.

The disappointingly brief seller’s explanation:

1983 Quatrro Coupe, good mechanical condition, just past smog, 5 cylinder turbo, 5 speed, european headlights and grill, white faced quages with additional gauge package, H&R springs, stainless exhaust system, wider Ronnal wheels. Runs good, but needs an alignment due to recent suspension work. Paint is tired but presentable, interior is the same. Some cracks on dash top. Removable sunroof, a/c, power windows, breaks, steering. A/C works, but needs a charge.

This is one of those times when the alignment and title issues fade a bit when you have the chance to pick up a rare piece of history. It’s for sale at $7500; if the issues can be resolved and keep it under $10k, I’ve gotta think that’s a good deal for a low-mileage Ur-Quattro. So close, yet so far away…

Clean, low-mile 1991 Audi 200 Avant

Clean, low-mile 1991 Audi 200 Avant

There’s just something awesome about wagons with a manual. Quattro and turbo make it a truly special wagon. Today we have an impressively clean Audi 200 from the O.G. unintended-acceleration era, looking as fine as ever. The sumptuous interior surprised me, demonstrating that Audi’s been doing the good-interior thing for a long time. With only 85k miles on this hauler, it’s got quite a few more years of being funky and awesome left in it.

document.write(”);1991 Audi 200 Avant for sale on eBay

From the seller:

The Classic Car Gallery is proud to offer this iconic 1991 Audi 200 Avant. This 217 hp turbocharged, 5 cylinder, all wheel drive wagon is one of only 200 imported into the country, and had a sticker price of more than $40,000 in 1991!!! This rare car was the sportiest wagon of its day, and is quick even by contemporary standards. The car has 85,271 miles, and is in very nice condition. The original white paint shows well, with good shine and depth, and few blemishes. The beige tan leather interior is in excellent condition, the leather is supple and shows little wear. At 60,000 miles, the car received a full service, including new Bilstein heavy duty struts and shock, conversion to conventional twin piston front calipers, new wheel bearings, and drive axles. All of this work was done by a licensed Audi technician. A new clutch and rear main seal were installed at that time. Recently, a new Mass Airflow sensor was installed. The engine runs well, doesn’t smoke, and makes great turbocharged horsepower!!! The 5 speed manual transmission shifts as it should, and the clutch works correctly. The car has a high end Alpine sound system installed. She runs on a set of BBS rims and NEW Toyo Proxes tires. Now For the bad.

1998 Audi A8

1998 Audi A8

Big Audis have always been the dark horse of the large German sedan clan. Audi first sold this all aluminum sedan in 1997 as a replacement for the Audi V8, sales of which ceased in the US in 1994. Not many people took notice as the big Audi bowed out of the market, but the A8 made a splash at the time as a very advanced and capable luxury cruiser.

The seller states:

Up for sale is my 1998 Audi A8. I’ve owned this car for about 5 years or so. It has extremely low mileage for the year and I’ve always kept it in excellent condition. My wife and I are downsizing a bit, which is the reason for the sale. We have 2 other vehicles and don’t need a 3rd in this economic climate. I’ve tried to include pictures of every possible square inch of the car so you get a good idea of what you’re purchasing.

As far as the exterior goes, the paint is good. It does have a few light scratches here and there and some rock chips on the front of the car. Nothing out of the ordinary for a 12 year old car. It has 3 nearly brand new tires and 1 tire that will need to be replaced soon. 3 out of 4 of the wheels are in great shape. 1 of the wheels, as seen in the pictures, has what appears to be some oxidation. On the front left part of the bumper, one of the clips is broken. You can see it in one of the pictures. It doesn’t affect anything, but a small part of the bumper is detached from the car just in front of the front left wheel.

1990 Audi 200 DTM Racer

1990 Audi 200 DTM Racer

Here is a turn key race Audi DTM spec race car. The car comes with a 3.6 liter V8 good for 420 horsepower, but you also have the option of buying a spare 4.2 liter 450 horsepower Audi engine as well. All the major components look to be genuine Audisport items and it appears the car started out as a Audisport body in white, not a converted street car. The car has a six speed transmission and looks good.
The ask is $60,000. I bet this is a blast out on the track. It looks like there are plenty of spares to be had for the new owner too.
