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.

1986 Audi 5000 CS Turbo Quattro

To say that the Audi 5000 has an interesting story is an understatement. When introduced to the US market in 1983 it was the top of the market in aerodynamics, achieving some of the lowest drag coefficients to date. With flush mounted glass, tight body gaps, and simple (yet slippery) body panels, it appeared as though the car of the future was here. With the legendary 2.2l turbo 5, Quattro AWD, and great styling, the future looked bright.

This all came to a screeching halt when Audi issued a series of recalls on the 5000 citing instances of “sudden unintended acceleration”. Owners were complaining that the car would accelerate, even under breaking, which resulted in a 60 Minutes segment, and several law suits for wrongful injury and even death.

Audi later eliminated the 5000 name plate all together, with the C4 generation leaving it only as a fond memory for Audi nerds all over.

This 1986 5000 CSQ for sale in Brooklyn, NY sent to us by one of our readers is a great example of why these cars are so beloved.

1986 Audi 5000 CS Turbo Quattro on eBay

I have tons of spares for this car that are also for sale.
The car has 221k on the clock, runs very well, does not consume oil and is a very solid car. I wouldn’t hesitate to drive this car across the country. If you’d like to run a carfax, the VIN is WAUHE0449GN051010 Since purchasing the car this past february I’ve …

  • flushed the cooling system with g12++ (everything came out super clean from the flush).
  • Replaced the thermostat and fan switch with low temp (80 degree) units.
  • replaced the radiator, and upgraded the fan to a quiet s-blade unit with seven blades.
  • As of this week the suspension has been overhauled, and all reused parts were cleaned and painted (including the spring hats that you can’t even see).
  • The car sits on bilstein sports and H&R springs that provide a 1.4″ drop from what you see in the photo below.
  • New control arms.
  • sway bar bushings
  • strut bearings
  • front and rear upper bushings, dust boots, etc….
  • the car sits on 16×8 A8 monoblock wheels with new Kumho’s that though “modern” still look like they could be period correct.
  • Ben Swann Software w/ a 2.1 bar wastegate spring.
  • the K26 is in perfect condition and feeds into to a two piece downpipe.
  • the diverter valve feeds a samco hose to keep things in check when you let off the accelerator.
  • very clean boost and air/fuel gauges installed in center vents, center vent modified and still works!
  • The car has a new alternator and battery as well.
  • Rewired all harnesses that go to driver’s door controls with factory repair wire and correct harness tape.
  • i also replaced the wiper blades. 😉

On the highway I get 31.5mpg all day long.
additional work which will all be addressed before the car changes hands:

  • the car came with a lifter tick due to stuck cam followers/lifters, rebuilt lifters will be going in.
  • i have a vacuum leak in the heater control that prevents the vents from blowing hot air, this will be fixed. the previous owner replaced the heater core, and i think the unhooked vacuum line was just a byproduct of that job.
  • the previous owner pulled the headliner fabric (i assume it was sagging), so i can pull and re-trim the headliner and (perfectly working) sunroof.

work that i can do, but won’t mess with unless you want me to.

  • fix a dent above the rear bumper below the trunk from when the previous owner got tapped in a parking lot
  • fix another small dent along the bodyline just below the rear right wheel opening from the same tapping
  • repaint the car

photos detailing any of the cars flaws (minimal) will be provided up on request.
the car will be thoroughly detailed inside, outside, and underhood before delivery. you’ll be able to eat off of it.
currently there is a properly and well installed Zex nitrous system on the car, big bottle, very full. I can include this kit with the car, or uninstall it, depending on what the buyer wants to do.
Full specs of the car can be found here http://www.audiworld.com/model/5000/86-5000.shtml

Anyone that has driven one of these knows the definition of a tank. The heavy weight, ample power, and Quattro make these cars virtually unstoppable no matter what mother nature throws at you. The owner of this car has done extensive maintenance, and has turned this 26 year old car in to a solid daily driver. With a BIN price of $3800, this car is priced to sell, average retail value on these is $4200, and with all of the maintenance, clean interior, and solid body, this is well above average.

Theme Week: 2011 Audi A3 TDI

An old coworker recently reached out as he’s in the market for a car that’s useful, fun to drive, city-sized and efficient. His shortlist included the usual suspects who make up this thriving segment: Mini, Audi A3, BMW 1-series, etc. To me, there’s no better compromise than the A3 TDI. It’s the best-looking, most efficient and most useful of the bunch, with plenty of luxury and tuneability. After witnessing my brother’s recent 50+ mpg road trip in a Jetta TDI, I could see going back to a long commute if I got to have an A3/Golf TDI with a chip.

2011 Audi A3 TDI w/ DSG for sale on eBay


Disclaimer: I plan to only own stick-shift manual cars forever. However, while I haven’t yet driven DSG myself, in a tech-laden young urban professional machine like this, it makes sense for efficiency, ease of use in the city, and even fun. My dream A3 would be a nice brown, but white will do. Fierce bidding has turned off the reserve at a low $18k, well below the asking price of $26k. Even into the low-20s, this is a great all-arounder that could still be plenty of fun.

Theme Week: 2009 Stasis Supercharged Audi R8

When ridiculous isn’t enough, sometimes you have to take matters in to your own hands.  That’s exactly what the previous owner of this car did.  Enter STaSIS Engineering, one of the premier Audi tuners in the world.  The STaSIS supercharger kit adds 120hp to the already impressive 420hp of the 4.2l V8, and all with a factory-matching 4-year, 50,000-mile warranty.  This of course doesn’t come cheap, the supercharger kit for this car is $30K…you read correctly $30K.

This Ice Silver Metallic R8 for sale in New London, CT is not for the faint at heart with 540hp, and 435lb/ft it’ll certainly plant you in the seat.

2009 Audi R8 on AutoTrader.com

Amazing Audi R8 4.2 Manual, STaSIS supercharger, STaSIS exhaust. This car is in show condition and has won many awards, many, many upgrades, navigation with CD changer, carbon fiber mirrors, side blade, spioler, front diffuser and more. This is a must see vehicle! Guarantee this special internet price by bringing a copy with you to our dealership. Satellite feature, Bluetooth wireless, daytime running lights, bi-HID Headlamps, side intrusion door beams, dual front knee airbags, LED daytime running lights, dual-stage front airbags with occupant sensing for passenger side, seat-mounted head-thorax side airbags for front seats, 3-point seat belts including belt tensioners force limiters, crash sensor including fuel supply shut off, battery disconnect, doors unlock. 4-wheel vented disc brakes, tool kit, electronic differential lock (EDL), Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, 4.2L DOHC FSI 32-valve V8 engine, Servotronic electromechanical power steering w/speed-dependent power assistance. Dry sump lubrication, front/rear 4-link suspension, Audi magnetic ride adaptive damping system, auxillary power outlet in trunk, auto-dimming rearview mirror w/compass, homelink garage door opener, leather/Alcantara seat trim, driver info system w/on-board computer, micro metallic gray trim w/aluminum accents, storage compartments in doors, 10-way power heated seats

 

At $100,000 this car is about $3,000 over average retail, but factor in the upgrades, that makes the price more than reasoneable, if you’re in the market for a modified super car.  The upgrades to this car are top quality, and with the STaSIS warranty, you know that you’re protected even though the factory warranty may be void.

With all of that said, would I buy this car?  In short, no.  This car was local to me, and was part of the VW/Audi scene here in New England, so I’m pretty familiar with it.  From what I could see, this car had a pretty rough 18K miles, being smoked in, and abused, not just driven hard, abused.  It’s certainly a shame, as no expense was spared in modifying this R8.  So if the history of the car is of no consequence to you, then this is a smoking deal on a true rocket ship.
