2001 Audi S4 Sedan RS4 Clone

In 2000 Audi introduced the successor to the legendary RS2 Avant, the B5 RS4 Avant. These were the days when the Avant was king, and manufacturers weren’t afraid to field a high horsepower, performance station wagon. The B5 RS4 was based on the same platform as the A4/S4 of the same generation, but the similarities ended with the roofline, and a few shared parts.

The RS4 underwent a major facelift, and featured widened fenders, new front and rear fascias, and wide side sills. These modifications allowed for the wider track of the RS4, and made it more aerodynamic than its mass market counterparts. Under the hood the RS4 again shared little with the S4…basically the block. With upgraded internals, bigger K04 turbos, and upgraded engine management, the RS4 had nearly 100bhp more than the S4.

While the RS4 was never officially for sale in the US, the parts are readily available giving enthusiasts the opportunity to build their own, which is exactly what the owner of this beautiful black RS4 clone has done.

This is certainly a car that someone has put a lot of time and money in to make it an almost spot on interpretation of what the RS4 sedan would have looked like had Audi produced it. The owner pulled out all of the stops from the wide body conversion, to the RS4 engine upgrades. While that may be the case, there are still a few glaring issues.

The main issue that I have with the car is the fact that it’s a sedan. Now I understand Avants aren’t for everyone, but they just look better. Another issue with the conversion is the interior, it appears as though it’s more S4, than RS4, which is a nice interior, however to command a $26,000 price tag, I’d want this car to be spot on, and it’s just not there.

At the end of the day this is just a hopped up S4 sedan with some RS4 bits, and even with the low mileage, I’d say it’s worth $15,000 at the most.

2010 Audi S4

The 4.2L V8 S4s are a hard act to follow. In 2009 when Audi announced that the S4 was returning to forced induction, many were skeptical that this car could live up to the S4 name.

While the supercharged V6 gives up 7 bhp to the predecessors V8, it makes up for it with a 20 ft-lbs torque increase and cuts the 0-60 by about .5 seconds. The B8 S4 puts the power to the ground via Audi’s legendary Quattro AWD and their new active sport differential. With more usable power, better gas mileage and loads of technology, and refinements, the new S4 takes Audi’s sports sedan in to the future, while living up to the S car heritage.

This clean Brilliant Black over Silver Alcantara S4 for sale in Houston, TX is a true gentleman’s sports sedan.

2010 Audi S4 on eBay

Introducing the 2010 Audi S4 that comes with legendary 3.0L V6 Supercharged engine, 6-speed manual transmission, Premium Plus Package, navigation, power sunroof, heated front seats, leather interior, Bluetooth phone system, rear backup camera, rear parking sensors, Xenon headlamps, Sirius Satellite Radio, alloy wheels, fog lights, power front seats, power locks/windows and so much more.

The B8 S4 is leaps and bounds beyond its predecessor, the only gripe that myself, and many other Audi enthusiasts will have is the loss of the 4.2 V8’s exhaust note, which when approaching the rev limiter is one of the best noises any car could make. That being said, it’s a small price to pay for what you get in the B8. Priced just a hair below retail, this S4 checks all of the right boxes with its black exterior, Alcantara seats, and the 6-speed. The only major option I wish this had would be the dynamic chassis, but that’s certainly not a must have for me. The mileage on this car is a tic high at 42,000, but that’s still relatively reasonable. Given the mileage, if this could be had for around $34,500 this car would be a good buy.

Given the current “competition” from BMW and Mercedes-Benz, the S4 is outgunned in the power department; however with Quattro AWD, dead sexy styling, and enough power to get anyone in to trouble, the S4 seems to be the most civilized option in the group.

Theme Week: 2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder

Supercars are great to look at, but let’s face it, how easy are they to live with? It’s not surprising that many of these cars have low mileage, because who would want to put up with a cantakerous engine, poor visibility and the inevitable reliability issues that come along with a high strung motor during your everyday travels? Back in the early 1990s, Honda came along and changed people’s ideas of how livable a supercar could be. The all-aluminum NSX was a legend in its time and is still missed by many, after it’s 15 year production run ended in 2005.

While Acura is readying a second generation NSX, I would argue that Audi picked up where Acura left off in 2008 with the R8. Based around the Lamborghini Gallardo platform and built by quattro GmbH, the R8 Coupe and Spyder has been raking in the accolades on the road and track. Looking through the classifieds, it is apparent that many owners have been successful in racking up higher mileage than your run of the mill supercar. While I’m partial to the hardtop, this V10 Spyder looks resplendent in Teak Brown and skips the R tronic gearbox for the 6-speed manual.

2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder on eBay

This one owner supercar is in Teak Metallic over Nougat Brown leather interior. Loaded with options including navigation, rear back-up camera, front and rear parking sensors, 6-speed manual transmission, enhanced leather package, carbon fiber Sigma interior trim, illuminated door sills, Bang & Olufsen sound with iPod integration, blue tooth hands free, LED headlights and LED running lights, power top, dual heated power front seats with driver’s memory feature, Homelink universal garage door opener and more. With an MSRP of $172,775. This R8 is super fast and in great shape in and out. Comes with all original books, keys, window sticker and Audi Care Program which includes all maintenance and extended warranty.

Audi R8s seem to hold their value well, as even the early V8 coupes are bringing in the $80,000 to $90,000 range to start. I’d suspect the reserve on this later V10 Spyder would be somewhere around $140,000 to $150,000 or so, based on comparables I’ve seen. A car like this just wants me to work that much harder, because I could only imagine the aural sensation of having the top down on an autumn afternoon, dropping down a few gears and listening to the overrun from that 5.2 liter engine.

2008 Audi A8

After spotting the V8 Quattro last week, I got on a crazy large sedan kick, and it’s still going. As I’ve been browsing the internet looking for great luxury sedans, a few things are becoming more and more apparent. First, BMW is going off the reservation with 7 series styling. They are one of the most polarizing cars out there, and I’m not sure how I feel. Second, these flagship sedans depreciate like CRAZY, making them some of the best bargains out there. Lastly, the Audi A8, is by far my favorite.

This silver over black A8 for sale in Framingham, MA is a great example of Audi luxury, at a reasonable price.

2008 Audi A8 on ebay.com

Features Navigation, Backup Camera, AWD, Moonroof, Leather

VERY LOW MILES! At just 34530 miles, this 2008 Audi provides great value.
LOADED WITH VALUE! This A8 comes equipped with: Cruise Control, Power Steering, Security System, Power Passenger Seat, Power Locks, Power Windows, Side Airbags, Passenger Airbag, Traction Control, AM/FM, CD Player, CD Changer, Moonroof

This is a great example of a well kept relatively low mileage luxury sedan in one of the best color combinations for a German car. The styling of the later D3 A8, is by far my favorite, It’s the beginning of the “waterfall” grill, but it’s still the generation before they went overboard with it. As someone that is in the market for a new-to-me car, this is certainly one that I would put on my short list. With an asking price of $37,995, it’s priced right about where it should be, and any good negotiator could probably go home with it for around $35K out the door.

Federalized 2001 Audi RS4 for sale

If you could bring one Euro-only car into the US, what would it be? Thanks to those selfish debtors hogging the best kit for years, there are so many good choices. Lancia Delta Integrale HF? Yeah, I want that. Any generation of M5 Touring? I want that too. Even the mundane E30 wagons get me going thanks to their status as forbidden fruit. However, the first car that comes to mind for me is the original B5 Audi RS4. As I’ve recounted before, upon first seeing one parked in Paris I stopped dead in my tracks and just stared for a few minutes, only to be doubly shocked when I walked around the block and saw another one. The front fascia and beastly wheel arches are to die for, not to mention the insane 350hp 2.7l Biturbo. There have been some amazing conversions (which are almost as brutally expensive as the real thing), but somehow the previous owner of today’s RS4 went through the whole song-and-dance to get this factory RS4 into the states. You, sir, deserve a round of applause.

2001 Audi RS4 for sale on eBay


From the seller:

The car is listed as a 1980 because ebay does not recognize the vin number. 2001 Audi RS4 titled, registered and federalized in California as an rs4. I was selling this car for the owner on a consignment sale but when i saw it, i just purchased it from him. I now need the money, so its up for sale. The owner before me originally bought this car for 125k back in 2004 with a little less than 10k miles. This car is super clean and fast. The only mods on the vehicle are awe down pipes, intake, and a chip computer, this was all done back in 2004, it was always serviced at Santa Monica Audi in California. Comes with factory navigation system and tv, the only problem is that its for another country so you cant use it over here in the u.s. The radio works fine and it also has a 6 disc cd changer. Interior is in mint condition, no one rarely ever sat in the back seats, the recaro seats are still in incredible condition. I have the clean california title in hand under my name and its ready for sale, I just had the car smogged 2 weeks ago and it passed with no problem. Tires are still in great condition, comes with michellin pilot sport tires with about 80% life left on them, also comes with a full size rs4 spare tire. This car is a super rare car and any Audi fanatic will love it. The only problem the car has right now is that the LED display on the cluster is going bad, the pixels in it are dying, this is about $150 fix, i might have it fixed by then. The car was also recently inspected at WMS (WIcked Motorsports) in van nuys, buyers are also welcome to do a pre purchase inspection. Please feel free to ask me any questions that you might have.

Beyond its rarity, this dream machine has just 21k miles on it. The only blemish appears to be the standard Audi LEDs-gone-wrong in the instrument cluster. As you might expect, forbidden fruit + low mileage = R$4, and the buy-it-now for this car is $70k. Too much for you? Well, then you can just move on to the next B5 RS4 in the States. Oh… that’s right, there aren’t any.

1990 Audi V8 Quattro

The predecessor to the modern A8 luxury sedan, the V8 Quattro was Audi’s answer to the BMW 7-series, and the Mercedes-Benz S-class. The Audi V8 was purpose built to be the ‘flagship’ offering for Audi, and served to elevate the image of Audi to that of a serious luxury contender.

With top of the line amenities, and V8 power this well preserved 1990 V8 Quattro is a pristine example of the gentleman’s sedan.

1990 Audi V8 Quattro on craigslist.com

This is an opportunity to own a rare Audi V8 Quattro. This car is unique because it is over 22 years old but still looks and drives like it is brand new. This car only has 34,800 miles on it! I am the second owner of the car and have taken excellent care of it. This car has been dealer serviced its entire existence and I have the records to show it. The car had a complete timing belt service done about 5k miles ago at the local Audi dealer. The car also got new tires all around 5k miles ago. This car is very powerful and is comfortable and quiet. With the legendary Quattro all wheel drive this car is extremely stable in any road condition. You will never again be stranded when it snows it Seattle. Last winter I drove it through 8 inches of snow and the car never lost traction. The car had a professional exterior detail 3 months ago so the paint shines like new. There are not any dents on any part of the body. The engine purrs and doesn’t leak a drop of any fluid. I would like to see this vehicle go to an Audi enthusiast who will continue to take excellent care of this vehicle. With the extremely low mileage and recent timing belt service this car could be a reliable vehicle for many more years.

These cars are the definition of a tank for the roads. The combination of V8 power, Quattro AWD, and an almost 2 ton curb weight, there was little that mother nature could throw at it that would phase it. The rarity and relative obscurity of these cars means that you hardly ever see them around, they just were never as popular as their German counterparts. These cars are valued in the $5,500 to $6,000 range making the $8,500 asking price tough to swallow, but in this condition, with such low miles, a premium must be paid. If this car were in the $7500 range, I’d be more apt to buy, and if it were the rare 5 speed, I’d already be on a plane.

Watkins Glen Vintage Grand Prix GCFS 2012 Audi & Elva

Back from this outstanding event where many a German car are out being put through their paces on the track with my annual post of the German cars for sale that caught my eye. The car that most caught my eye this year, was unfortunatley not for sale. It was a stunning 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing that won the Concours d’Elegance for the weekend. What made it extra special though was this car was driven to the event from Massachusetts, we’re talking a journey of several hundred miles and hours. The owner, upon winning the top prize, took the microphone and remarked how concours cars should be used as they were intended and not trailered to events. This is a good reminder to those attending car shows that if you see a nice car and it has a few rock chips on the front, instead of being a dick and pointing them out, compliment the owner on actually having the balls to get the car on the road rather than using white gloved staff to drive the car the 10 yards off the enclosed trailer and onto the car show lawn. At the end of the weekend the Gullwing’s owner was hopping back into his multiple $100k car and driving back to MA, a journey I’m sure the car and driver both enjoyed. Click the images to see large photos of just how clean this car was despite the highway journey.

Ok on to my two picks for listings. This year the two I’ll post are at vastly different ends of the spectrum.

The first is a facelifted, late 1980s, Audi GT Coupe that needs some love.

Audi Coupe GT

These coupes have unique lines and are pretty hard to come by these days, despite their observed scarcity, other than the Quattro model, they remain quite affordable.

This one has relatively low mileage for the year, 86,000 miles, and a ask price of $1,200. It clearly shows some wear and tear issues. Fading logos, a few rust bubbles, worn interior, etc. I know we usually try to find finer automobiles than this, but this car looked lonely parked on the side of the road under the overcast sky, watching as millions of dollars worth of vintage street and race cars drove past. It has a manual and if it runs well it is certainly worth saving and I bet the seller can knock a couple hundred off the price. You can give your kid a pretty unique fun first car to work on with this on the cheap. A few hours of elbow grease and this car could be a lot prouder. You can see from the photos its not a bad 10 footer at all. I don’t want to post the seller’s phone number, but post a comment if you are interested and I’ll get it to you.

 

The other car for sale that I thought would be fun to list, it being a Grand Prix event and all, is this 1965 Elva Mk.VIIs racer.

1965 BMW powered Elva Mk.7s

The Elva 7s racers were tiny cars, barely coming up to the knee, and were powered by a range of under 2.0 liter engines. While Elva is a British car company, this race car is powered by a very German BMW engine and comes complete with a BMW badge out front. Some Elva cars, think Can-Am, were fitted with very much over 2.0 liter 500 horsepower V8s by McLaren, which must’ve been immensely scary to drive.

The car has eye catching looks, the covered headlights up front present a really nice smooth face. The looks maybe confused for a D type Jag or Porsche Spyder if you squint, but the Elva isn’t like either of those, though Porsche power was found in other Mk.7 Elvas.

This particular car is super fresh, it has a recent restoration in which everything has been gone over. Basically everything is new or rebuilt from the body to the chassis to the engine. Transmission is a Hewland unit which is loaded with new internals. The new parts on the car are too many to list. The owner also states that the car can handle a 6′ + driver thanks to some modifications.

The car is available through Lee Chapman Racing, http://www.leechapmanracing.com

Obviously this is going to run you a bit more than the Audi listed above, but I suspect it isn’t obscene. No price is given, but I’d bet we’re looking at something in the $150,000 range with it in its race ready condition. I’m not really sure, I haven’t seen to many Elva’s cross the block in my time.

 

As always I highly recommend a pilgrimage to Watkins Glen, the birth place of modern road racing in the U.S., to any gearhead and the annual vintage festival is a perfect time to make the trip.

1973 NSU Ro80

While the NSU Ro80 wasn’t a car of any particular firsts, it was the combination of advanced technology that made it seem out of this world upon its introduction in 1967. Yes, you read that right. 1967. While it looks like it could have stepped out of a design studio in the current decade, this is a 45 year old design we are dealing with here.

First and foremost, the engine was the centerpiece of the Ro80 equation. A smooth, twin rotor Wankel that displaced just under one liter powered the car through its front wheels. The transmission was a three-speed semi automatic, similar in concept to Volkswagen’s automatic stick shift. Other forward thinking touches included four-wheel disc brakes, four-wheel independent suspension, power steering and a low coefficient of drag as a result of its streamlined look.

It was unfortunate that so many Ro80s were scrapped due to teething problems with its rotary engine. With the technology available to us today, issues such as apex seal wear can be easily remedied. This particular Ro80 for sale in the Netherlands has been lovingly cared for by one owner over its lifetime.

1973 NSU Ro80 on Anamera

Rare, beautiful. Had only one owner. No rust, Wankel engine excellent, bodywork excellent, semi-auto transmission excellent. Unique car, collectors item, good investment.

Almost $25,000 USD for an Ro80 is about the top of the market for one of these. Realistically, one in good shape should command anywhere between $10,000 and $15,000. These cars have seen values creep up a bit, if not to the same level as that other avant garde sedan from the period, the Citroën DS. These were the last vehicles to wear the NSU badge, with the last ones rolling out of the factory at Neckarsulm in the Spring of 1977. For all their faults, NSU certainly went out with a bang with this car. I’ve always been a fan of the Ro80 and hope that they continue to get their due respect for years to come.

To get a flavor for what the Ro80 is like in action, check out the following clip from Top Gear:

749whp 2000 Audi A4 Avant

Last week, I posted an E63 AMG wagon, and while it’s an amazing grocery getter, it pales in comparison to this car on basically every front. Needless to say this is not your grandma’s grocery getter, the owner of this mind blowing A4 has spared no expense in making this one of the fastest, if not the fastest A4 Avant in the states.

Starting with a VR6 swap from a VW, and redoing…well…just about everything, this 749whp monster is the definition of sleeper.

749whp 2000 Audi A4 Avant on Audizine.com

I am putting for sale my 2000 B5 Avant with a VR6 swap. I don’t need to sell this car at the moment, so please don’t kick tires if you’re not serious. Also, if you’re gonna get sassy, save it. It would not be possible to replicate this car for the price. I know what I have into it, and I know it is way way more than the asking price. Currently located in Buffalo, NY. The car is originally from Virginia (lived there until this past October) and has never seen a Buffalo winter. Let me be clear with that up front. The underside of this car is rust free.

I’ve been piecing this car together over the past few years, and it has been through a number of renditions/setups. This setup makes almost 300WHP more than it did last year. I recently dyno’d at Innovative Tuning in April/May and made 794WHP at only 32psi. This turbo setup can be pushed into the low-40psi range as shown by a few drag VR6 cars around the US.  As it sits I ran a 10.9@ 137-138mph in the ¼-mile with me driving. If you’re a better driver, you will go faster. I am just a crappy drag racer, and also got booted from the track for not having a cage. It runs a 2.07 FATS time, which isn’t in this cars powerband at all. It runs these times with full interior, as it is driven on the street and on street tires. 3700lbs of fury. The car runs and drives like a stock car would, within reason. I say within reason because it has firm mounts etc so you do feel the engine, but its not overbearing at all.  

It cold starts just fine, and you can drive away as soon as you fire it up in the morning. There is no need to wait for it to warm up etc. Thought I suggest not pinning the throttle until oil temps come up, for obvious reasons. The exterior of the car is not perfect. It’s a “15-foot” car, not a show car. It still looks really good, but it does have flaws. However, a good paint restoration would go a long way in improving it. There are 2 small door dents on the passenger side, and 2 dents in the hood. Also, the drivers door has slight bubbling paint in one area that was there when I got the car. It has not spread at all, but you can pick up a new door for about $50 if it bothers you. Comes with High boost E85(32psi), Low Boost E85(22psi), and 93 octane maps. The 93 octane map isn’t for making power, it’s in case you find yourself unable to fill up with e85 in an emergency. Car can be re-tuned for C16/Q16 etc as you see fit, also. Has Launch Control, full electronic boost control with failsafes for overboost, IAT failsafe, Coolant temp failsafe, cold start rev-limit failsafe, boost-by-gear, no-lift shift etc. All 100% configurable. I know I’m forgetting tons of stuff, and am missing tons of little things in the parts list but I will add as I think of it. If you have any questions about the car please feel free to ask. I do not care to answer questions such as “how did you do the swap?” etc. There’s more than enough documentation around to figure that out.

The most impressive thing about this car is that it didn’t come out of a high end race shop, rather it was built by an enthusiast in his garage using the best of the best parts, and a whole lot of know how, and a touch of imagination.

This is another one of those car that you just can’t put a price on, as a plain old 2000 Audi A4 Avant, this car is worth around $7000, add in the impressive parts list, and the $24,500 sale price is a bargain. It is practical, nope; would it make you giggle like a little girl on a regular basis, definitely.

1993 Audi S4

Since the early ‘90s, Audi has utilized the “S” to signify its high performance production vehicles. The inaugural S car was the C4 bodied S4. Based on the Audi 100 sedan, the S4 featured a 227 horsepower turbo charged and intercooled 2.2 liter five cylinder power plant, and legendary Quattro AWD.  The combination of power, and all weather capability quickly became a thing of legend.

This clean Black over Ecru example for sale in Layton, UT is a very well kept example of the car that started it all.

1993 Audi S4 on eBay

 RARE RARE RARE 1993 Audi S4 5 cyclinder turbo!!!!!! This is truely an amazing  car. This was one of Audi’s best. If you know Audi then you know how amazing and rare this car is. This car runs and drivs great. Turbo boost really well and the engine pulls hard. The 5 speed manual transmission shifts extremely well. This car is truely a blast to drive. Automatic door locks, automatic windows, sunroof, leather, Quattro, turbo.
The features this car has is endless and well ahead of its time. More importantly  than features is the engine. Its a great engine. Have original owners manual and sticker. Now this car isn’t new or I would be asking much much more. Will need front brakes. Alternator bearings  are making noise. A/C blows cold but only from top vents. Its a ’93 and for the year has way low mileage and is honestly in great condition.

This is a car that I’ve lusted after for years, and is certainly one that is near the top of my bucket list. With 148K miles, and great looks this car would be great for a collector, or someone looking to make a powerhouse. Average retail on these cars is in the $5,000 area, and taking in to account the cleanliness and low mileage (relatively speaking) of this car I think it will sell for every bit of that $5,000.

While the low mileage and unmolested mechanicals are highly desirable, these cars are not without their problems. But as needy as these cars may be, you’ll quickly forget all about it once the snow falls, because that’s where these cars shine.
