The B5 RS4 was the first wagon that I truly fell hard for. Unfortunately, the closest I ever got to the über-Avant was having my face two inches away from my computer screen, drooling over its bulbous fender flares. Audi continued the torturous trend of keeping their special RS wagons out of the States with the release of the B7 RS4. While we never saw the Avant, we were lucky enough to get the sedan and cabriolet version which is better than no RS at all.
Regardless of body style the RS4 came with an all-alloy 414hp 4.2 V8 that could wail to a stratospheric 8,000 rpm redline and enough grip from the Torsen central diff to pin you into the Recaro sport seats.
Here we’ve found a super rare white, which I believe to be Ibis and not Arctic, RS4 in Pennsylvania for sale.

Jeremy Clarkson wrote an article back in 2006 on the B7 RS4 Cabriolet titled “Audi RS4 – My mission: to prove this car is not perfect.” An accolade of this magnitude coming from a man who consistently drives the coolest and most prestigious cars ever created is nothing short of impressive…and let’s not forget he was talking about the overweight, wobbly, roofless version!
While prices haven’t quite hit a low point for the super sedan we have seen them readily available on the second hand market. $35,000 to $37,000 is right in line with what to expect for this type of mileage and condition. I’ve actually seen this one on eBay for a few weeks now hinting that low thirties is more realistic for higher mileage examples. This color combo is probably the rarest I’ve ever seen for sale which adds to the cool factor but not necessarily the asking price. I’d much prefer white exterior with the black Euro only RS bucket race seats.
Both mechanically and aesthetically the Audi TT has always been on the softer side. In 2009 all that changed and the cutesy two door finally received a proper high performance version that we had all been dreaming of for years. It came in the form the TT-RS and marked the end of an eight year absence of Audi’s high-performance turbo five-bangers.
This 2012 TT-RS is for sale in Arizona with 15K on the clock and looks great in Ibis White with the “5-arm rotor” titanium design wheels.
Year: 2012 Model: TT-RS Engine: 2.5 liter turbocharged inline five Transmission: Six speed manual Mileage: 15,543 Price: Reserve Auction, $57,000 Buy It Now
If you are looking for a car that is a blast to drive and looks good doing it, this is the car. The TT-RS has a powerful 5 cylinder turbocharged engine that is even better with the addition of the Stasis Engineering software giving the car more horsepower and more torque for when you want it. This car is done in Ibis white with black Alcantra leather interior. Non smoking and always garage kept. There is not a ding or dent on the car and the finish is in excellent condition. (Always hand washed and waxed). There is some minor curb damage to one of the wheels (see photos)
All scheduled maintenance and servies have been done along with new brake pads courtesy of Audi(replaced squealing brakes). Never tracked. New set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires just put on the car and it handles even better. This car is a blast to drive. Quick with exceptional handling and looks to match. I often have people pull up next to me or stiopmre in a parking lot to tell me how hot the car looks and if you like exclusivity this car has that too. There was a limited number of these cars made and sold in the US.
You wont pull in a parking lot and see the same car all over the place(unless you go to an Audi meet or show). And this car comes with the remiainder of the 4 year / 50,000 mile warranty so you wont have to worry about something going wrong. This car has:
2.5 liter turbocharged with intercooler, DOHC in-line five-cylinder gasoline engine with TFSI® direct injection and variable valve timing
6 Speed Manual transmission
Stasis Engineering Performance Software
Audi magnetic ride with Sport button program. Equipped with shock absorbers containing a special damping fluid, this premium suspension offers a selectable Sport mode that delivers livelier handling
Driver and front passenger dual–stage airbags, head/thorax side airbags, and knee airbag
• Audi adaptive xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running light technology
• Cornering lights–static halogen
• LED interior lighting technology
• BOSE® sound system with twelve speakers and AudioPilot® noise compensation and 225 watts
• Audi Navigation plus
• Audi music interface with iPod® integration

Sport exhaust with Black exhaust outlets
19″ 5–arm–rotor design titanium finish wheels with 255/35 Michelin Pilot Super Sport performance tires
Llumar Formula Window Tint
Audi Guard All Weather floor mats and trunk liner along with carpeted mats.
This is a beautiful car and it runs as good as it looks.
Interestingly, the TT-RS has Haldex AWD versus the standard Quattro Torsen system due to its transversely mounted engine. Many have commented on the negative effects of the Haldex unit including that it handles like a front wheel driver and that it’s limited to sending 50% of power to the rear versus 100% for the Torsen central differential. Regardless, this TT-RS is quite the machine and packs an extra 70 hp/tq thanks to the Statis Engineering engine software.
Depreciation hasn’t quite sunk in for these models due to rarity and lack of time on the second hand market. You can expect to shell out well over $50K for similar examples but in this case I think the right price is around $54-55K not the $57K Buy-It-Now.
When I see a C5 RS6 I can’t help but draw the comparison between one of my favorite athletes of all time, Bo Jackson. Like Bo, the C5 RS6 was at the pinnacle of power and versatility for its time with 444 horsepower and capable all-wheel-drive. It was the first time many of us had seen this level of performance delivered in such a composed and athletic way. The C5 RS6 should have a place in my top five super sedans but like Bo its potential was ultimately limited by injury. In this case, the RS6 suffered from extreme maintenance costs and a lack of a manual transmission.
This 2003 RS6 is one of the cleanest we’ve seen and comes with a handful of desirable modifications that help enhance the driving experience. The seller claims that the work and parts total well over $20K and judging by the list of brands like Revo, Miltek, MTM, Statis Ohlins I think that number is accurate.
If you’re considering an Audi RS6, then you already know what you’re looking at. This is an extremely clean example and I encourage anyone to come see it for themselves. I will try to be as descriptive as possible, but please feel free to reach out to me for any specific questions/conversations.
I purchased this car in April of 2012 with approximately 58,000 miles from someone who took meticulous care of the car which was used as a second car. I’m now selling because my commute has tripled to an average of 50 miles per day and I need a more fuel efficient vehicle. The following is a list of tasteful modifications and maintenance that have been done to the car. It really is perfect for someone who wants a perfectly sorted RS6.
WARRANTY: Fidelity Warranty Services – Platinum Warranty. This is the best company in the business and owned by JM Enterprises (Largest Lexus Dealer/Distributer on the eastern seaboard). This covers just about anything is an extremely valuable for a car like this. There is a $100 deductible and all repairs are done OEM. The warranty was purchased on 6/3/11 for 3 years or 36,000 miles. The expiration is 6/3/14 or 87,998 miles. There remains about 1 year of warranty…
Upgrades (OVER $15,000 in upgrades):
Stasis Ohlins – These are the best coilovers you can buy and were installed about a year ago…incredible handling and ride quality. Fully adjustable for height/compression/rebound. I’ve also just installed upper control arms to better reduce uneven wear.
REVO Stage 2 – Precats gutted and coded out
MTM Torque Converter – This is HUGE if you have done research on this car. The transmission is the weak point in the vehicle and the torque converter significantly improves the long-term health of the transmission. I want to point out that this car has ALWAYS been respectfully driven and there are absolutely NO issues with the transmission. I’m happy to take the car for an PPI or put you in touch with the mechanic locally that has worked on the vehicle for me.
Milteck Catbach Exhaust System with Black Tips – This car sounds amazing with an incredible exhaust note. It is not at all loud with absolutely no drone.
Hotchkiss Front & Rear Sway Bars
Stratmosphere Diverter Valves
Apikol – Rear differential mount and differential carrier bushings
Laser Interceptor – Double Front and Rear
Hard Wired for Valentine 1 & Small Display – DOES NOT COME WITH THE V1
I’ve installed a Pioneer Avic-Z140BH head unit which is wired for GPS/Navigation and Bluetooth for handsfree cellphone capability which works better than most OEM systems (you can see the picture of the mic next to the Valentine One). Car is wired for iPod/iPhone but you can also wirelessly play music from your iPhone music library or Pandora! Further, I have included a backup camera which the pictures show as well.
Maintenance ($5,000 in recent work):
New Tires: Continental DSW with only 3,000 miles on them.
Refinished Rims: Wheels were refinished about 10,000 miles ago and are in near mint condition. Only 1 minor chip.
65K Maintenance: Included transmission fluid change, spark plugs, filters, etc.
Timing Belt Change: This is a $2,000 job and included timing belt, tensioner, roller, idler roller, camshaft seals, water pump, coolant, etc.
New Alternator: The work was done under Fidelity Warranty Services.
Brand new brake pads
The Avus Silver paint is nearly flawless for a car this age. It has always been garaged and waxed. Paint is “deep” and one of the best Audi silvers to option. There is a small scratch on the rear-left bumper with a picture attached. The leather is in great shape and extremely supple/soft. The pictures make the leather look tremendously worse than they really are. I was “worried” as I purchased this car sight-unseen, but was very happy with the condition of the leather in person. The pictures make the leather looked “cracked” but they are simply wrinkles because the leather is so supple. Overall the interior condition is great for a car this age…most Audis (VW) have issues with the “soft keys” and matte paint around the door grips, etc., and there is definitely some signs of wear on these. I can send close up pictures of anything that is requested. Again – the pictures of the interior actually make the car look worse than it is in person.
I still have a hard time controlling my inner car geek when I see an RS6 out in the wild. They are wonderfully subtle yet manage to have the menacing presence of a brusing running back with their hunkered down stance and beefy fenders. This example is in wonderful condition and has all the right upgrades. Potential buyers may feel a little extra peace of mind seeing the recent 65K maintenance and timing belt change but that doesn’t mean you won’t need a trust fund to take care of the car should something go wrong. Engine work has been known to cost anywhere from $5K for repairs all the way up to $24K for CPO engine replacements. The car’s asking price is only slightly higher than market value for a stock example. Considering the investments in upgrades and preventative care this certainly would be a remarkable car for the money if nothing went wrong. Here’s a short clip of what you could expect from the Miltek exhaust upgrade as well. I certainly would never get sick of this.
Every now and then we like to throw a fast Swede into the mix. Case in point this Volvo V70R estate. We’re all fans of fast five doors here at GCFSB, and of those that have appeared in the last decade, this is one of my all time favorites. In recent years, Volvo has been able to kick a bit of its staid demeanor it has been known for over the years by introducing more aggressive styling and a bit of performance into the mix. Available also as a sedan, the V70R is powered by a 2.5 liter, turbocharged inline five cylinder engine. In stock form, this engine cranked out 296 horsepower driving all four wheels. With Brembo brakes and a multi mode suspension, this makes for one aggressive family hauler. This particular 6-speed manual V70R is for sale in New York and has a low 25,000 miles on the clock. In addition, performance modifications have this estate putting out 360 horsepower.
6 speed manual. This is a 2006 V70R awd turbocharged wagon. Go ahead and look here on autotrader or anywhere else and see if you’ll find a manual with only 25,000 miles on it. Car is in excellent condition and very well maintained. Pop up navigation screen, built in Bluetooth, rear back up sensors, moonroof, rear wing, navy blue leather make these combinations one of the rarest V70R in the United States. Dealer serviced with all paperwork, original window sticker, never been in a accident and Flawless paint on the car. Some wear on the drivers seat that’s it. Tires have about 90 percent tread on them. Mobile 1 synthetic oil used. ECU tune, downpipe, exhaust and ams filter blackout mesh grill and lowering springs installed at Mitchell Volvo motors in Connecticut where the car was purchased new. Performance mods where warrantied threw Mitchell Volvo as a participating evolve/elevate dealership. Puts the horsepower around 360 and torque 380. This car is one of a kind period. My price has very little room for negotiation. If your serious about the wagon please call the number. Emails will not be answered.
It’s true that this could be the lowest mileage V70R 6 speed manual estate on offer, but the price is a bit far reaching. The best V70R estate will probably bring somewhere between $17,000 to $22,000 on a good day. But, the seller’s tone seems to indicate he’s not going to move on price. Unless someone really has to have a V70R estate with a 6 speed manual, this car will probably stay on the market for a bit of time. Money no object, this is a car that is square in my radar and is one that I could conceivably use as the answer to the age old question: “if you could only choose one car to drive for the rest of your life, what would it be?”
Even after eight years of being on sale, I still have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that Porsche sells a four-door, off-road vehicle. True, years ago the company built a diesel tractor, but for myself and others, the 911 will still be the quintessential Porsche. Still, the Cayenne is a perfectly capable vehicle in its own right. If I was going to own one, however, it would be this one, the GTS. Powered by a 4.8 liter, 405 horsepower V8, this beast was available with a 6-speed manual transmission, as we see in our feature car for sale in Arizona.
This 2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS AWD, 6 Speed Manual is perfect in every sense of the word. VERY RARE approximately 1 in 25 OEM versions of the Cayenne GTS were produced in the rare manual gearbox format. If you desire the functionality of a sport SUV with the exhilaration of personally commanding the delivery its 4.8L 405 hp and 369 ft-lbs. to the pavement through the famous Porsche 6-speed manual gearbox, this is your new vehicle. It has been meticulously cared for by the original owner. This Cayenne is gorgeous. All Porsche service by Porsche dealership. All GTS standard features plus much, much more.
Interior Feature Installed Options: Leather package (black) Full leather inside including dash and all doors, with full Alcantara headliner and Alcantara seat inserts ($3,170 factory option),PCM (Porsche Communication Management) w/ Navigation ($3,300 factory option),Bose Premium Surround System, 12 speaker ($1,690 factory option),XM Satellite Radio ($750 factory option),Blue-Tooth Interface ($1,431 dealer option),I-Pod Interface ($708 dealer option),Heated Front Seats ($690 factory option),Lighting Package/Memory Keys and Seats ($610 factory option),Moonroof ($1,190 factory option).Exterior Features Installed Options: Bi-Xeon Headlamps with washers ($1,560 factory option),Trailer Hitch ($630 factory option),Enlarged Rear Spoiler (STD, similar to Turbo),Full Turbo Fascia Kit (STD, similar to Turbo).Other Notables: tags current through April 2013 (Arizona), new Michelin Latitude Sport 295/35 R21 on Porsche GTS specific rims (also, perfect).
Bottom line, this vehicle is even better in person than in pictures or on paper. It will not last. Priced to sell at $53,950. You could pay $12,000 to $14,000 more for the same vehicle (if they had it) at the Porsche dealership for a “certified” pre-owned version, but my service records exceed the “certified” standards so why pay more? This GTS sells itself. Serious inquiries from qualified purchasers only.
Even though so few were made, I can’t help but think a Porsche like this might be a bit of a hard sell. Many hardcore Porsche enthusiasts don’t take too kindly to the Cayenne and those in the market for a luxury SUV wouldn’t want the manual transmission. Porsche has announced the second generation Cayenne GTS will not be available with a manual transmission, as only 3% of GTS buyers from the previous generation opted for three pedals. If you want an SUV but are looking for exclusivity, this truck might be the best option this side of a Lamborghini LM002.
