2001 Audi S4 Avant

Audi brought the S4 Avant to the United States for the first time in 2001. It joined the sedan lineup and offered a follow-up to the large chassis S6 Avant from 1995. This was actually the second S4 Avant, as Europeans had enjoyed the C4-based creation in the early 90s. Audi’s renaming convention therefore created a successor to the B4-based S2 Avant. Instead of the traditional inline-5 motivation, though, Audi had developed a new 2.7 liter version of its V6. With a K03 turbocharger strapped to each side, the APB produced 250 horsepower at 5800 rpms and 258 lb.ft of torque at only 1850 revs. Like all the B5s, Audi’s new generation of quattro used a T2 Torsen center differential and relied upon an electronic rear differential utilizing the ABS sensors. The B5 chassis used the same technology on the front differential as well and was capable of independently braking each front wheel to try to sort the car out through its dynamic stability program.

But the real fun was that it was available as an Avant and with a 6-speed manual. Just over 1,500 were claimed imported between 2001 and 2002 model years, with about 600 of those being Tiptronic equipped. This is one of a claimed 80 Imola Yellow 6-speed manual Avants imported for the model year, and for good measure it’s got quite a few upgrades:

Pricing Philosophy: We work very hard on our cars. We take the time and invest the energy to do the right things before we sell them. This includes multiple inspections, parts replacing and a considerable amount of preventative maintenance and labor hours. We inherently don’t have much price wiggle room because we have learned over the years, especially with the european cars, that investing in the service work before selling them is truly the only way to sell a good product to the end user. About 95% of the used car listings online never have any information written in them about recent maintenance or preventative maintenance which is ultimately very costly to the new owner. If they are european vehicles, you are looking at thousands in hidden needed repairs. With us, you pay a little more on the front end but get so much more in the long run. We work hard to deliver superior product quality and create present/future value for our clients via service work investment. We have been helping clients all over the world for over 20 years running. We would love to add you to our enthusiast group and earn your business today! we accept trades and can ship anywhere! 1.615.390.4334

There’s really a lot to like here. The color combination is neat, the condition appears to be great, I love the wood trim inside, mileage is on the lower side for an Audi, and it’s got a ton of big-dollar work claimed to be already done. It should also have at or near RS4-level performance thanks to the upgrades, and I love the wheels; though, due respect, I do not believe they’re real MTM wheels. Usually those have MTM stamped in the spokes, and these appear to be the Hartmann replicas. Still, add up the rest of what’s here and you’d be hard pressed to pull it all together for much less than the asking price. Admittedly, that’s a steep price to ask. But, as Andrew recently pointed out, it’s a really big jump to a real RS4.

  1. I can’t believe how good we had it back then; you could buy a manual high performance wagon from Audi in the B5, B6, and B7 generations. And now…..zilch.

  2. Wow. I can’t believe the price!!?? Weree not top versions of this generation maxed @ about $20k 5 years ago??

    Are there anymore under rated and under valued German cars anymore? All the ones I had been aware of have crept up in value enough to where they’re are over priced for my budget.
