My appetite for engine swaps has waned as I grow up and appreciate originality and provenance, but that’s not to say I dislike them. I still think an S38 in an E30 would be excellent, or a modern 2.0T in an older VW. I can usually even get past the uncomfortable feelings of cognitive dissonance when I see 3-series with 2JZs from Supras or RB26s from Skylines. There’s been an LS1-powered E30 M3 that crops on eBay every once in a while that looks great and must be a wild ride. Hopefully I’ve convinced you that I’m not upset with this 3-series purely because of the engine swap. It’s the whole package – the Subaru scoop, the terrible stance and wheels – piled on top of a Chevy 355 that makes me feel sad for the unwitting 318i that was the basis for this monstrosity. Sure, it does great burnouts, but why?!

GetAwayCarz Performance Drivelines has just completed the newest addition to the lineup of fire-breathing mix-breeds. This car started out life as a 1995 BMW 318i (YES, as far as insurance is concerned, it’s a 100HP 4 cylinder that doesn’t require a high emissions inspection 🙂 ) The shell has 170k on it but is in excellent condition. We added a 355 cubic inch small block Chevy with 10 to 1 compression, 2.02″ intake valves and 1.6″ exhaust in freshly rebuilt heads, .465″ lift cam with 282/282 duration with a fresh timing chain, a new then modified edelbrock intake, a holley 4 barrel mechanical secondary double pumper carb with custom fabricated Ram Air box for dense cool air through the hood scoop, full MSD ignition system including 6AL box, MSD billet distributor, MSD custom taylor ignition wires and MSD’s Blaster coil, adjustable fuel pressure regulator is on drivers side strut tower for accessibility.

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: 2004 Volkswagen Phaeton

Screen Shot 2013-09-17 at 11.54.54 AM

The Volkswagen Phaeton may have been too far of a reach for the brand to sell well in the US, but the car itself was a serious accomplishment. The W12 is a monster while the 335-hp V8 is more than capable for a large and luxurious all-wheel drive sedan. It may look like an overgrown Passat and have the achilles heel of overcomplication, but some Audi wheels can address the prior and finding low-mileage examples like this one can at least delay the latter. Meanwhile, you’re going to be cradled in an epic luxury sedan that you bought for the price of a base-model Golf.

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: 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:

V8 Week Preview: 1994 Porsche 928 GTS

V8 Week Preview: 1994 Porsche 928 GTS

Porsche’s foray into the GT car market was supposed to be the move that insured the long term success and viability of the marque. Surely their quirky rear-engined sports car had reached its potential and buyers would prefer the combination of performance and comfort that only a well designed front-engined GT could provide, right? Such was the basic process behind the introduction of the 928. First introduced in 1977, the 928 had a 4.5 liter V8 delivering 219 hp to the rear wheels. By the end of its life-cycle in 1995, engine output had increased to 345 hp from a 5.4 liter V8, but much of the rest of the car, especially its appearance, remained the same. In the end, Porsche had underestimated the long-term viability and potential success of the 911 and it’s now been nearly two decades since the last of these GT cars rolled off the line.

The car we have here today comes from near the very end of the model’s production run: a 1994 Porsche 928 GTS with manual transmission located in Indianapolis.

Double Take: A Duo of Audi S6 quattros

Double Take: A Duo of Audi S6 quattros

Like the last “Double Take” I did on two Passat W8 Variants, today’s double feature is two powerful eight cylinder all-wheel drive wagons from the Volkswagen Audi Group – this time, it’s two S6 quattro Avants. Like the W8, these S6s were pricey when new but have maintained a cult following that loves them. Rare to see anywhere you go, they offer lots of speed from their 340hp V8s, lots of comfort from their luxurious interiors, all-weather capability and a massive load capacity. Today we’ll start by looking at an Atlas Grey 2003 and finish with a Pearlesant White 2002:

1990 Audi V8 Quattro

1990 Audi V8 Quattro

The predecessor to the modern A8 luxury sedan, the V8 Quattro was Audi’s answer to the BMW 7-series, and the Mercedes-Benz S-class. The Audi V8 was purpose built to be the ‘flagship’ offering for Audi, and served to elevate the image of Audi to that of a serious luxury contender.

With top of the line amenities, and V8 power this well preserved 1990 V8 Quattro is a pristine example of the gentleman’s sedan.

1990 Audi V8 Quattro on craigslist.com

This is an opportunity to own a rare Audi V8 Quattro. This car is unique because it is over 22 years old but still looks and drives like it is brand new. This car only has 34,800 miles on it! I am the second owner of the car and have taken excellent care of it. This car has been dealer serviced its entire existence and I have the records to show it. The car had a complete timing belt service done about 5k miles ago at the local Audi dealer. The car also got new tires all around 5k miles ago. This car is very powerful and is comfortable and quiet. With the legendary Quattro all wheel drive this car is extremely stable in any road condition. You will never again be stranded when it snows it Seattle. Last winter I drove it through 8 inches of snow and the car never lost traction. The car had a professional exterior detail 3 months ago so the paint shines like new. There are not any dents on any part of the body. The engine purrs and doesn’t leak a drop of any fluid. I would like to see this vehicle go to an Audi enthusiast who will continue to take excellent care of this vehicle. With the extremely low mileage and recent timing belt service this car could be a reliable vehicle for many more years.

2004 Volkswagen Phaeton

2004 Volkswagen Phaeton

The Volkswagen Phaeton is a polarizing car. Some people see it as an overpriced Volkswagen. Others appreciate it for what it brings to the table in terms of engineering and exquisite detailing. Before he retired, Ferdinand Piëch, Chairman of the Volkswagen Group, wanted to develop an uncompromising luxury sedan to beat the likes of Mercedes-Benz at their own game. While he may have succeeded, the market dictated otherwise. By 2006, four years into production, a little over 25,000 examples of this luxury sedan had been produced. The domestic market is by far the strongest, but the US market was a different story. Under 1,500 Phaetons were sold here in 2004 and for 2005, a mere 820 cars found homes. The writing was on the wall and Volkswagen ceased US Phaeton sales the following year. This Phaeton in for sale in Massachusetts represents a lot of car for not much money.

2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

Right near the top of the list of car that will cause me to lose my license, the C63 AMG is one car that I could really get myself in to trouble in.  I had the opportunity to drive one in my brief career as a valet, and this car scared me.  Even though the 6.2L is detuned for the C63, with only 450bhp compared to the 500bhp offered in other models, it’s still enough to give the driver perma-grin.

This Steel Grey Metallic, on Grey leather C63 for sale in Dallas, TX is simply stunning.  With AMG seats, navigation, and power everything, this car has everything I would need in a sports sedan.  The styling on these cars is spot on, it’s juut enough to let you know that the car is serious, but not so much that it’s obnoxious.

2004 VW Phaeton being practically given away

2004 VW Phaeton being practically given away

I’m into cars from the 80s. That’s my thing. Maybe it’s just that’s when I was born, and those cars got burned into my forming mind in a way that modern cars simply cannot. Maybe it’s that 80s cars seem simpler, the greatest extrapolation of purely mechanical cars before computers and “safety” weight took over. Maybe it’s that, for the most part, awesome examples can be had for very reasonable prices. Or maybe I’m just weird and got hooked on them for no logical reason. Whatever it is, I think someday I’ll see the value in cars from the ’00s, if for nothing else than their extreme value due to shocking depreciation. This VW Phaeton is for sale for less than 20% of what it cost just 8 years ago. One-fifth. And the great thing about the Phaeton is that, while they bring hefty maintenance costs, they weren’t bad cars. In fact, VW did the luxury thing pretty darn right. Americans just weren’t ready to drop that kind of coin on a “Peoples’ car,” so it acquired the stink of failure. Well, let’s continue to buck what everyone else in this confusing country wants and get AWD, V8 power, and acres of leather and wood to recline in while we look way richer than we are.

2004 VW Phaeton for sale


No real insight to the car from the description other than it’s in good condition inside and out and doesn’t smell like smoke. Works for me. 90k miles and a Buy-it-Now of $14k makes this a deal any way you look at it. If I really wanted to get crazy, I’d hold out and find a W12, but that’s begging for trouble. Don’t get crazy, just get rational, and get a top-tier luxury car for Nissan Versa money.

The recent subject of Jalopnik’s great “Nice Price or Crack Pipe” feature, today’s 1995 E34 540i is a clean example of one of the first V8 5-series. While not the coveted M-sport 540i, it does come with a similarly-rare 6-speed transmission, offered only in 1995, which is sure to bring plenty of fun with the willing and torquey 280hp M60 4-liter. It looks very straight inside and out, and while the white-on-white may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it definitely looks like a nice to place to be. My college rowing coach had one of these exact models but in dark blue and commuted 100 miles a day in it for 10 years. He eventually went to a diesel Benz for the auto, but praised the 540i’s speed and comfort for the long haul. Providing the same torque as the E34 M5, this is a great way to get 6-speed fun and clean E34 style without too much hassle or M-premium.

2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500

2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500

There are a few cars on my short list that I’ve promised myself I would own before I die. The Porsche 911. An Alfa Romeo Spider. A Maserati of some sort. And this car, the Mercedes-Benz SL. Having grown up in the 1980s, the R107 was the “it” car for that generation. When the new SL appeared on the scene in 1989 for the 1990 model year, it was a giant leap forward for two seater Mercedes-Benzes. For the first time in years you could have a six cylinder SL with a 5 speed manual transmission in the US, which was a surprise, as the Mercedes-Benz product managers were a lot more stodgy in those days than today. This new R129 roadster would carry the SL moniker into the 21st century and hand off the baton to the R230 SL in 2003 after 200,000 examples of six, eight and twelve cylinder roadsters emerged from the factory. Here is a low mileage final year example of the popular SL500 on offer.

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.

1993 Porsche 928 GTS 5-speed

As the ultimate expression of the Porsche 928, the GTS has always garnered its fair share of admirers, myself being one of them. These particular 928s still command strong values, with some lower mileage examples known to have fetched over $40,000 in some cases. This particular GTS caught my eye as it is the more desirable 5 speed manual and is priced in the mid $20,000 range. The car is closing in on 100,000 miles, but someone has obviously taken good care of this vehicle over its lifetime, looking at the close-up photography. This GTS would look more sporting in a shade or red or black, but the Amazon Green over gray leather is subtle and lends an air of class to this car.
