Imola Yellow…it’s a color that you either love or hate. Put it on a car that’s almost universally loved and it’s an unstoppable combination. This particular B5 can be found in Colorado and it almost sounds too good to be true. Here’s the ad:
Rare 2001 Audi S4, 6-speed manual, 40,800 miles, AWD, finished in Imola Yellow with black Nappa leather interior and powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.7L V6.
Only 256 Imola Yellow 6 speed S4s were made in 2001. Original paint except the front and rear bumpers were recently re-sprayed.
A recent engine-out service included installation of a new RS4 clutch, rear main seal, output flange seal, oil cooler, Stern engine mounts, USP Motorsports slave cylinder. SS Auto Chrome stainless steel downpipes with catalytic converters and Milltek cat back exhaust were also installed with an APR ECU flash.
The instrument panel LCD screen was also replaced and a new OEM battery installed.
Suspension improvements include Bilstein coilovers, Nuespeed rear swaybar, and factory 17″ wheels fitted with Continental Extreme Contact DW tires (12/32″).
Car runs and handles great with no issues.
Service records, manuals and a clean Carfax are included.
It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a B5 S4 with this low mileage. Also, is the price worth it? It’s always worth it to someone especially those who love the B5 and who also has a love for eye-catching colors. If this person is you, you can find this S4 HERE.
