A very low-mileage Audi V8 Quattro is up on eBay with 20 days left at a Buy-It-Now or Best Offer price of $6500. This was the predecessor to the A8, offering a 3.6L 247hp V8. Weak by today’s standards, but not too shabby in 1990. It was also the only full-size sedan with AWD at time and came with a galvanized body, so rust shouldn’t be a problem.
I think the big selling point here is the extremely low 41k miles. It’s no Ur-S4 or S6, but $6500 for a fun, big AWD sedan is not too bad at all.
Oh, how I love me some box fenders. They are so quintessentially 80s and badass. All the best cars have them… E30 M3s, Golf Rallyes, HF Delta Integrales, and the indomitable Audi Ur-Quattro. The game-changer. As the name suggests (“Ur” means original in German), it was the first application of Audi’s now-famous Quattro system, and what a way to start. Only 664 came to the US, so buying one would put you in rare company. This beautiful red example looks immaculate and is probably one of the finer survivors out there.
The condition of this thing is amazing. Exterior, interior, and engine all look really clean, and it’s got less than 60k miles on the clock. The Euro bumpers and lights are nice additions, as the US bumpers are oversized and throw off the lines. The price is high at $20k, but the car is exceptional and rare, so who knows. A die-hard Quattro fan who wants a near-perfect example may see this as a great opportunity.
A lot of attention is given to the first generation Audi Quattro, with its rich rallying heritage and crisp 80s styling. The second generation succumbed to the typical weight gain that manufacturers seem to equate with progress, with the excuse that it was now more of a GT than a lightweight rally car. The n/a 2.3 liter put out 164hp, about the same as contemporary Corrados, but had more weight to carry around. It wasn’t all bad though, as the new model came with a locking rear differential, carbon fiber center driveshaft, and a clean new look.
This example is surprisingly clean inside and out (look at the engine compartment!), probably in part thanks to only having covered a restrained 109k miles. The squat Audi 90 shape still looks great today, especially with the S2 styling cues that the North American version got. It’s too bad we missed out on the turbo engine, but that can be remedied with relative ease in the Audi/VW lines. It’s for sale for $4900, well below the blue book. Being this clean, it’s a tempting example of some 90s Quattro fun.

All-wheel drive. Twin-turbo V6. Six-speed. Wagon.
The B5 S4 Avant holds a special place in my dream stable. Understated sexiness and a wide range of capabilities make other dream cars seem unnecessary. A grocery getter? Sure. A backroad blaster? Definitely. Mountain monster? Born for it. The twin-turbo V6 means it’s lighter, more efficient, and more easily tuned than the B6/7 V8 or the newborn B8 with its supercharged 3.0. Add in a rare 6-speed, and this 2001 S4 for sale on eBay is what dreams are made of.
This example looks clean and well-loved. It’s no spring chicken; these cars are coming up on being a decade old and it has the miles to prove it, but it should still have plenty of love left to give. Upgraded brakes and suspension are intelligent and prudent modifications.
There isn’t much else to say other than I wish this had been under the Christmas tree this year!
I am selling one of the RAREST Audi Cars Available. Not one for sale in the USA this year. Audi only shipped 73 to the US in 1985 as the car cost $49,000 to buy. This one was shipped over here in 1992 from Germany. Has the Euro Chip with over 200BHP. Nardi wood steering wheel and shift knob. Fiberglass deck lid was new for this year as well as newer wiring and updated leather interior. This is the only one in the USA like this one. ZERMATT SILVER Paint. Perfect interior and dashboard and Carpet. No rips in anything. New Sunroof Seal. New 215/50/15 v rated tires. Has original Rally Ronals. NO Dents. No wrecks.
THESE CARS WERE HAND MADE IN GERMANY!!!!
YOU cannot find these cars. If you do they wont sell them. I hate to sell this one!!!
Just had timing belt, fuel injectors, water pump, Fuel Filter done. Perfect compression. New Ansa Muffler and powder coated cam cover and timing belt cover and pulley.
An Absolute Gem. This is the nicest one I have seen and this is the rarest year for this car and the rarest Color. Not even sure they shipped Zermatt Silver as a color in 1985, only in germany.
paint is extremely nice for original paint. there are some scratches and the front and rear bumpers need a new paint job.
Do not waste my time. ONLY SERIOUS buyers!! This is a very valuable and rare car. The last one i saw sell was a 1983 for 20,000 nearly a year ago. No rust, door jams, everything is perfect.
I have pictures of everything for really interested buyers. No low ballers.
I hope this car is listed somewhere else with a better ad because this Craigslist posting hasn’t convinced me that this car is worth $20k! The pictures look like they were shot in tow truck parking lot, and most of the very lengthy description looks completely copy-and-paste from someone else’s listing! Not to mention, am I the only one who thinks the wooden steering wheel and shift knob are out of place?
One thing the seller is right on about is the fact that these are rarely seen for sale. Hell, they practically make e30 M3‘s look abundant in comparison!
Update: This post is out of date and the item listed is probably not available any more. Why not take a look at these Audi Coupes and parts that are currently for sale!
