2008 Audi A8L 4.2 quattro Sport

Back in September 2021, I took a look at a very pricey and pretty rare Audi A8 – the W12 long-wheelbase model:

2005 Volkswagen Phaeton W12

Well, if you wanted a more affordable version of this car, which stickered at an eye-watering (at least for Audi) $120,000 base price, you could get the still pretty punchy 4.2 model. These rang in some $50,000 less than the W12, but still offered 350 horsepower on tap, the same looks, and most of the same luxuries. You could opt in for some nice equipment, as well – including the Sport Package. It cost $4,000, but it gave you a lot of equipment…20″ Seven double-spoke alloy wheels with 275/35 R20 summer performance tires, adaptive air suspension, and a three spoke multifuction leather sport steering wheel with shift paddles. The $3,300 Premium Package added in parking assistance, window shades, and a power trunk functions, and this one was also ordered with four-zone climate control – on top of the plethora of standard features. For a bit under $80,000, then, you had a really impressive looking sedan with a boatload of space and luxury. What do these set you back today?

That’s right – with moderate mileage, these can be found for under $20,000 today. Condition of this one seems to be very good overall, and while it won’t be mistaken for a new car, it still looks new enough to impress. I’m sure they’re not without their faults; the air suspension will probably need attention in the not-so-distant future, and these engines also had timing chain tensioner issues that can be expensive to fix. Still, if you like your cars big, this one seems like a pretty reasonable way to get a lot – and I mean a lot – of car for your money.
