2001 Audi RS4 Avant

I’m always curious as to what the right-hand drive “discount” is. The reality is that unless you live in one of the 75 countries (I bet that is more than you thought) that utilizes right-hand drive vehicles, owning one is a real value killer. I know this first hand as I have a right-hand drive vehicle in my small collection and while it is fun driving it, I know that compared to an identical left-hand drive example, the value is less. I think that even holds true on some of the more desirable models and that seems to be the case with today’s car.

This 2001 Audi RS4 Avant up for sale in London is one of the 500 or so produced in right-hand drive specification. To be honest, unless you live in the UK, Japan, South Africa, Australia, or New Zealand, owning this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. (Those 70 or so countries are not places you’d want to own an RS4 Avant.) However, this is a right-hand-drive car in a right-hand-drive country. Why is it so much less expensive?

2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder

Always read everything. You never know what might be hiding in a mess of 1,000 words.

Today we have one of the cooler modern Porsches that doesn’t get talked about nearly enough in the 2016 Boxster Spyder. It was a GT car that wasn’t really a GT car technically but everyone raves about them and the prices they command back that up. Find one with lower miles and it’ll still bring around the original sticker price or above, which is actually more than what the brother GT4 commands. Today, we have a very cool example with just 6,600 miles on the odometer. However, this one has one major catch.

2004 Mercedes-Benz G500

You are probably looking at that photo above and thinking that is not a 2004 Mercedes-Benz G500. Thanks to the never-ending need for humans to look more wealthy than they really are, we end up with this creation. That is in fact a 2004 G500 with a W463.2 front grille, hood, fenders, fender extenders, bumpers, lighting, side mirrors, and giant 22″ wheels. I’ve seen it all.

1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E Euro-Spec

Like the M635CSi from yesterday, one of the benefits of looking at the European versions of the cars that were offered here is colors. Judging from the outside, this E500’s Brilliant Silver Metallic won’t look any different than what you could find in the US. No, what I’m talking about is the interior. Specifically, this range-topping Japanese-market 500E has cloth upholstery, and it always has. Nifty? You betcha. It also has extra-flared rear wheel arches, some wild OZ Racing wheels, lowering springs, and an AMG-style rear spoiler. Let’s check it out!

1985 BMW M635CSi

One of the things I love the most about the Euro M cars is their colors. While the bulk of the US cars boiled down to just a few shades, in Europe you could really get some treats. Case in point is today’s Burgundy Red Metallic (199) ’85. This color was only available on pre-facelift European models (5511, 5531, and 5532) and sufficed to say is quite rare. It looks great, especially over the white interior and is accented by some flashy 17″ BBS Style 5s with throwback Motorsport-logo center caps:
