Motorsport Mondays: BMW E92 M3 World Challenge

So you want to go the the race track, eh? I don’t blame you; I’ve been tracking cars for 15 years and went to the track with my father for years before that. It’s a fantastic experience, and addictive for most that are involved. It always seems to start off the same way, too – people come to the track with their daily driver, which is soon replaced by a much faster daily driver, which is then completely ruined as a road car in an effort to get the best lap times possible. Loud exhaust, uncomfortable seats, concrete suspension, ridiculous splitters that you leave on the curbs trying to get drive-up coffee, lots of attention from the local law enforcement who refer to you as “Mario”; if it hasn’t already happened to you, it surely will if you go to the track. This is, of course, not to even mention the expense of building a car to be a track weapon – if you don’t double your initial purchase price or more in modifications, you probably weren’t trying hard enough. That’s why it’s so appealing to buy a track car or – if you have the means – race car that someone else has already built and taken the depreciation bath on! But you don’t have to go all out and buy a full race team of championship winning cars – there are plenty of examples of “also rans” which would make a suitable track weapon for the weekend warriors. Such is the case with today’s example – an already fast car made much faster in the form of an BMW E92 World Challenge M3:

V8 Week: 2003 Audi RS6

In the rarefied world of German super-sedans, the launch of the Audi C5 RS6 took the category to a new level. With 450 turbocharged horsepower on tap, this was a super car in disguise capable of destroying the competition in stoplight drag races and high-speed Autobahn blasts while offering comfort for 4 people and being useable year-round in any weather event. Try that with your Lamborghini, Ferrari, or even pre-Panamera Porsche. Like most super-sedans, once the warranty was up the residual value fell quicker than the massive brakes could haul it down from speed, and now these beasts can be had in prime condition for not much money. Today’s 2003 example looks particularly stealthy in popular Ebony Black:

My 2003 Audi RS6 MTM is for sale. I am the third owner and have owned the RS6 for about 3 years. This car was a present from me to me and was appreciated more as a piece of art than a form of transportation. That would explain the low miles I’ve put on it during our time together (about 4,000 miles). All previous owners are from around Tampa Bay area.

When it comes to maintaining my baby, expenses are never spared, as I like to keep all of my vehicles in immaculate condition. My Ebony Black RS6 is fully loaded with every possible option including:

· Ebony Black interior with

· Alcantara® and

· Carbon Fiber

· Navigation

· Satellite Radio

· Sport Exhaust with Black Tips

· Cold Weather package with

· Solar Sunroof

Additionally, my precious RS6 had some work done by the MTM go-to-guys, Hoppen Motorsport in Sarasota, FL.

V8 Week: 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG

V8 Week: 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG

How do you out-AMG AMG? Known for dropping motors out of large cars into small cars, AMG replaced the six cylinder unit in the C36 with a larger M113 4.3 V8 from the E430. Great, right? Well, although it was now plus two cylinders, the new C43 wasn’t really much quicker than the C36 had been. That apparently wouldn’t do for the owner of this particular C43, who decided to AMG up his AMG by dropping an E55 motor in it, and then supercharging it. Well, then. Power isn’t specified, but considering the non-supercharged E55 motor pushed out 70 horsepower more than the 4.3, I think we can lump this one under “a lot”. Take a look at today’s home-brew C43/55:

Sorry California, but at least they’re upfront! There’s a long list of things to love about this car; I think the W202 is a better looking car than the later C-classes, the Monoblocks look particularly awesome on this model with the well polished lips, white is the perfect understated color for this type of car, it will likely outdrag most supercars, and it appears to be in great shape.…

V8 Week: 1999 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG

V8 Week: 1999 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG

Ever want to own a legend? While the M113 5.5 liter V8 AMG motor has made it into basically every model Mercedes-Benz made for a while, it all started here with the E55 AMG. Mercedes-Benz had aimed the 500E squarely at the M5 market, and the E55 really was the spiritual successor to that car. Though not considered by many as attractive as the earlier E class, the E55 still had an aggressive, understated presence that hinted a monster was under the hood. Since then the AMG division has pumped out some serious iron, so much so that you could almost forget this car. That would be a shame, because like the Audi S8, these were supreme highway cruisers capable of taking down most sports cars in a drag race. Today’s example is a 1999 model of these seldom-seen Autobahn masters:

Mechanically this car is perfect! maintained well and with lots of new parts and good to go for a long long time.

Also like the early Audi D2 S8s, depreciation hit these cars quite hard and many have fallen into disrepair or racked up many, many miles. At 170,000 miles, this car is no spring chicken, and the advertisement notes it shows it’s fair share of parking lot memories and even some rust. However, they claim it is mechanically in good shape and reports on these cars is that the engine and drivetrain is pretty stout.…

V8 Week: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG

V8 Week: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG

We don’t often feature SLKs here on GCFSB.com, nor do we often feature any of the “three German hairdressers.” The Z3, TT and SLK were all popular, and in general all hated by enthusiasts but loved and desired by the public at large. But in each of their own ways, they had something special to offer enthusiasts. For the TT, it was all wheel drive, turbocharged power and a body that has aged better than most French wines. For the Z3, there was the undeniably sporty Z M Roadster and the fastest breadvan in the world, the Z M Coupe. What did the SLK have to offer then? Well, the nutters at AMG decided that it needed a 5.5 liter V8 mated to a 7 speed auto. With 355 horsepower and enough torque to melt your tire budget like the proverbial knife through butter, these cars were the closest thing the Germans had made to both a hot-rod and a joke. Still, as one just like today’s silver example rumbled by me on a particularly sunny day last week, the thought crossed my mind that they were very undeserving of their lack of respect. V8 week offers us the opportunity, then, to take a peek at the alternative to the Z M Roadster and the Boxster S:

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?!

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.…

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.

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.

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.
