2007 Audi S8 with 308,000 miles

My fascination with really high mile cars knows no bounds and today’s car is no different. This 2007 Audi S8 is a one-owner car that shows a little over 308,000 miles and looks like it did a quarter of that. How or why this happened, I have no idea. What I do know is that I absolutely shiver at the thought of maintaining an Audi V10 for over 300,000 miles. Just doing the quick math on the gas bill alone, 308,000 miles driven averaging 17 mpg, means this thirsty monster has consumed roughly $65,000 worth of gas in 12 years. The crazy thing is, all of the registration is just outside of Chicago. Naturally this assumes some kind of traveling salesperson, but of all the cars to pick, a giant V10 Audi? What is even more crazy is the condition of this D3. Just wait until you see it.

The exterior looks fine enough with no major blemishes or marks that I can see, but what really blows my mind is the interior. I thought for sure I was going to see a mess of torn up leather and buttons so worn it looks like they were painted white. However, none of that can be found. It looks like a normal used Audi with some miles on it. None of the screens have mixing pixels or lines through them, nothing at all. Either this is a testament to the S8s durability, or the original owner kept this car with an open check book. Either way, I am impressive. However, what isn’t impressing me is the price.

$12,000 for this seems like awfully wishful thinking. There was literally another 2008 S8 on eBay in similar condition with 170,000 miles for just $550 more than this car. You have think that the market for this car is either a person who is an Audi technician or someone who is clinically insane. Just for kicks, I looked up what a used 5.2 V10 sells for and it wasn’t all that bad at $4,000. Still, I just can’t wrap my head around paying $12,000 for a high-strung Audi V10 with over 300,000 miles. Cut that price in half, then I’ll think about it … maybe.

  1. Hmmm, the listing shows a price of $10,980 and mileage of 208,279. Same VIN. Zero mention of service records!

  2. @John They just relisted the car with a lower price and 100,000 miles missing from the odometer. Slimy stuff. You can see in the listing that I used to write this clearly says 308.

  3. At least the pic of the odometer still shows the 308k miles.
