The D2 Audi S8 is one of the very rare models from the company that not only excites fans within the marque, but indeed automotive enthusiasts in general. That’s pretty strange for a sedan that most non-enthusiasts would probably not give a second thought to; it’s not a rakish coupe, it doesn’t have a million horsepower, and it doesn’t even have very modern tech. But thanks to a very notable movie appearance and its understated good looks as well as solid performance, the S8 is still a car that draws universal praise.
Some 20 years old now, these models are on the verge of being considered “antique” in many states. Yet they still look pretty modern, the clean design hiding its age well – especially considering that at in eight months it will be 30 years since the ASF hit the show circuit. Let’s take a look at this Brilliant Black ’02 up for sale in Florida.

2002 Audi S8
Recent Maintenance (with receipts)
– Continental Timing Belt kit
– entire fan clutch assembly with new pulley
– plastic oil cooler line replaced with aluminum Bufkin pipe
– valve cover gaskets
– mobile 1 synthetic oil & filter change
– air filter
– plugs were checked along w/ chain tensioners and are in good working order when valve covers were pulled
The transmission shifts nice & smooth. The suspension feels tight, the brakes & tires have lots of life left.
I will get interior pictures in the coming days. The drivers seat shows signs of wear, & the trunk open warning will illuminate when it’s not open.
See video for a walk around video for exterior condition.
What’s to like? Well, it looks pretty slick and it’s got some notable maintenance items taken care of. It’s not the most adventurous of color combinations as S8s go, but it does channel the classy nature of the D2 well. The seller is looking for $11,500, which to me seems like a good deal. At time of writing the promised interior photos aren’t up, but unless a bear got inside there and ripped it to shreds, it’s hard to see how you’d be going wrong with this car.
I’d take a D2 S8 over an early AMG S55 (349 hp version). For the price it could be a fun car, although I’d be very wary of things that will inevitably break on a high end 20 year old German car, and the repairs will not be cheap.
Hmm, I’ll be in Naples in 2 weeks….do I dare have a look at this, which might cause me to do something silly like buy it? These cars are so damn nice.
I like it too. Yes the colour combo is bland, but when the transmission explodes you could throw a 6MT in there. That’s a forever car for less than 20k
Mine would have to be Dark Green with a Nitrous System “I’ve got the Specs”
