A V8 for every production year – 1990-1994 Audi V8 Quattros

I’m not going to hide my love of the Audi V8 quattro. It was one of the most challenging cars I have ever owned, but it was also the one that I find myself still looking at and wanting in spite of the many repairs and several headaches. I’ve like the V8 quattro since it first came out; a hunkered down, V8 engined, heavily modified 200 quattro, it managed to feel almost nothing like the C3 chassis it was based on. Audi seemed to agree, renaming the V8 “D11”, effectively creating a new chassis class despite the nearly identical dimensions to the 200 that ran alongside the V8. Recently I wrote up a first year 4.2 V8 quattro that was in great shape, evoking memories of both my ownership and the DTM series that Audi dominated with the slightly portly but very powerful V8 quattro. Today, I’ve decided to round up all of the model years; we’ll cover 1990-1994 V8s that are currently for sale. Let’s start where it all began:

1991 Audi V8 Quattro

The Audi V8 quattro – one of my all time favorites. Finding a good one these days is difficult, especially if you’re not a fan of very popular Pearlesant White that a fair amount seem to be. In fact, prior to today I had written up four Pearl V8 quattros; like 3 of those examples, today’s is one of the earlier 3.6 “PT” engined cars, with subtle differences to the 1992-1994 4.2 V8s. Like the later cars, the 1991s gained the light and fashionable BBS RZ wheels; seemingly a requisite for luxury German motoring in the late 80s and early 90s. Other than that, there weren’t too many running changes to 1991 cars – but this particular example is offered in the rare-to-see Opal Pearl metallic and seems to shrug off most of its 170,000 miles:
