2001 Audi RS4 Avant

I’m always curious as to what the right-hand drive “discount” is. The reality is that unless you live in one of the 75 countries (I bet that is more than you thought) that utilizes right-hand drive vehicles, owning one is a real value killer. I know this first hand as I have a right-hand drive vehicle in my small collection and while it is fun driving it, I know that compared to an identical left-hand drive example, the value is less. I think that even holds true on some of the more desirable models and that seems to be the case with today’s car.

This 2001 Audi RS4 Avant up for sale in London is one of the 500 or so produced in right-hand drive specification. To be honest, unless you live in the UK, Japan, South Africa, Australia, or New Zealand, owning this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. (Those 70 or so countries are not places you’d want to own an RS4 Avant.) However, this is a right-hand-drive car in a right-hand-drive country. Why is it so much less expensive?

2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series

It often pays to be first. There certainly is true in the car industry as well. Especially when it comes to rare limited-production models that everyone wants but not a lot of people can get. The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is turning out to be a perfect example of how much difference a year makes when it comes to pricing. Let’s take a closer look.

2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe Edition 1

Back at it again with a special edition that came out of nowhere, for what reason we aren’t sure. This is the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG coupe Edition 1. What is the Edition 1? Just a random name that Mercedes decided to stick on their S63 AMG coupe. Even though 2015 was the first year for the model, there were just regular 2015 S63 AMG coupes that weren’t branded the Edition 1. So what was different? Well, on the outside you got designo Magno Alanite Grey Matte finish and Swarovski crystals in the LED headlights. Inside you’ll find Aubergine red leather, carbon-fiber trim, a DINAMICA-finished headliner, and a little badge on the steering wheel. That’s it. Hope you weren’t holding out for any more power.

2003 Porsche 911 GT2

It is hard to believe that some cars that were already six figures have doubled in value over the past five years. Especially considering the hype around them isn’t all that much and the values of risen without much notice. Of course, I am talking about the 996 generation of the Porsche 911 GT2. Just five years ago we looked at a 2002 for 3,200 miles on the odometer for an asking price of $169,000. That car finally ended up selling for $154,000 and at the time, seemed like a big price for a 996 GT2. Oh, how naïve we were. Today, we have another 996 GT2 up for sale in Pennsylvania with just 3,900 miles. The price? I told you to double it.

2001 Porsche 911 Turbo

If you are going to go Dragonfly Turquoise Metallic, you might as well go all in. I’m sure that isn’t exactly what the old saying is, but in this situation, I’ll buy it. What we are looking at here today is a 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo in the paint-to-sample share of Libelltürkis Metallic. You might remember this exact color from the 1996 911 Carrera 4S I looked at earlier this summer. It looks like Porsche kept that color on top and had enough of it to also paint the legendary Turbo Twist wheels in that color as well. On the inside? Well, surely you weren’t expecting something tame.
