1995.5 Audi S6

If today’s 5000CS quattro Heap of the Week got your hopes up for older big Audi ownership on a budget, this S6 should get your blood flowing as well. That 5000 was going to need a lot of work to get it into shape, and in the post I suggested you could get a later 200 in better shape for less than it would cost you to resurrect that 5000. Well, here you go; an even more recent and arguably more desirable last-of-the-run 1995.5 Audi S6 in similar black over black:

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1995.5 Audi S6 on

Year: 1995.5
Model: S6
Engine: 2.2 liter turbocharged
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 278,000 mi
Price: $3,900

$3900 obo.

This car has all the desirable 95.5 S6 features such as 3 spoke steering wheel, strengthened 1st gear transmission, windows close with key, and updated Bose Delta stereo with 6 disc CD changer. 4x heated seats front/rear. Bulletproof 2.2l, Five-Cylinder, 20v Turbo engine and 5 speed manual transmission.

I have owned this car for going on nine years and it has been a dependable and fun to drive car on the street and track. It just turned 278k miles. It has been maintained to be a reliable and comfortable daily driver. Air conditioning works, all four heated seats work, cruise control works, fan does NOT squeak. These things are commonly broken on an Audi of this age but they have all been fixed by me. This car was previously a California car and the underbody still cleaner than one would typically expect from a 19 year old Minnesota car.

All maintenance and work has been done by Anderson Motorsports, Imola Motorsports, Stellar Autoworks, or by myself. I have a stack of receipts going back to the original owner that is included in the sale.

This S6 would make a reliable and relatively inexpensive daily driver for the enthusiast or a good basis for a big turbo project for the fanatic. This is the most capable Audi you can buy for the money.

I have a clean Carfax report I can email you, it shows the most recent major work done in 2011 in the report.

August, 2005, I purchased this car at 131,xxx miles from Orange County, California.

I have lots of additional photos available upon request.

First off, this car looks fantastic in spite of the nearly 300,000 miles. The black paint shines well and the interior doesn’t look overly worn. This model has the preferred and light Fuchs-made 16×8 5 spokes that appear to be still in good shape and are running meaty snow tires. There are a host of upgrades present, including items that will improve driveability as well as performance. As a package and under $4,000, this pretty much unbeatable in terms of value and performance. Sure, it’s not a collector car with all of those miles, but you could drive and enjoy this car for many miles to come – and isn’t that why we’re all here? Throw a V8 torsen rear differential in the back and get to a frozen lake for some fun!

    That guy has got to be a photographer. . .his pics look great, and cause I’m a geek I checked the pics to see what his gear is, a Canon Eos 5D & Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens = $5k+

    No mention of the massive FMIC? Most likely an Apikol unit I would mention this very nice $1300 upgrade in my sales pitch. This is huge in the S6 because the factory cross-over pipes and intercooler end tanks were plastic

    Hi everyone, this was my old car, it sold very quickly four days after I put it up for sale. The new owner got a very nice car. I would have kept it if I had room. The above commentor “Ry” is correct, I am a photographer. I shot the interior photos with a Canon 16-35mm ultrawide angle lens and a Speedlite 580EXII with a Gary Fong Lightsphere diffuser. The exterior photos were taken with a Canon 50mm f/1.2L lens and natural light. The FMIC was mentioned in the ad under the “Engine” section.
