[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="50185"] words: Bill, photos: Prior Design NA, found: Armen...from Kansas City Wow. That's all I have to say. Someone took a 2017 Audi R8 V10 plus and figured it wasn't enough so they dropped over $80k in parts and labor...and created this beauty here. Normally, I'm just content with a 'regular' V10 plus but then I've been told I'm not normal. Here's the ad: 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus.  Over $80k of parts and labor spent on this build. Currently 3150 ...

find of the day: 1 of 150 Audi RS 6 Avant Nogaro Edition

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="50103"] words: Bill, photos: Motorhome MKK Greeting from the season finale winner of find of the day: Throwdown Edition! Sorry about gloating; I've never won an episode before and well...it felt great crushing the completion with this baby. As I was looking for an entry into the show, I ran across this 1 of 150 Audi ABT RS 6 Nogaro Edition. I was so enamored by the car that I didn't pay attention to the vehicles in the background...all motorhomes...

find of the day: 1 of 8 2015 Audi R8 V10 Le Mans

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="50005"] words: Bill, photos: GTA Motorcars Soooo yesterday I was ranting that my B5 RS 4 Avant should have won last week's find of the day episode but I totally forgot about this selection: a 1 of 8 2015 Audi R8 V10 Le Mans edition in Sepang Blue. George's choice won its round and the overall award...sorry Jacob. The ad for it is very bare bones but luckily we had our resident Audi Nerd, George, to fill in the blanks. It shows up at the 43 minute...

find of the day: 2001 Nogaro Blue Audi RS 4 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49950"] words: Bill, photos: Classic Cars South Westphalia As I was searching for an Audi for last week's find of the day: Throwdown Edition, I found this B5 RS 4 Avant in Nogaro Blue. Since we had a Canadian Audi Club member as a guest, we went with the Canadian 15 year import rule (the U.S. has a twenty five year rule). It totally should have won its category if not the whole show but I'm not salty...much. Now some may know this about me but th...

find of the day: 1980 Audi 4000 Two Door

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49583"] words: Bill, photos: Craigslist Here's something you don't see every day: a 2 door Audi 4000. Ok, I don't see this every day; in fact, I don't think I've ever seen one before. In that mythical land of non-rusted vintage European metal (the Pacific Northwest), there lies this creature. The PNW seems to be filled with vehicles like this; in fact, our Executive Director bought his 1984 4000S quattro from this area and that thing is ...

A Two-fer find of the day: 2020 Audi exclusive R8 V10 and 1964 Auto Union 1000 S Sport Coupé

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49506"] words: Bill, photos: Keyes Audi, Kucarfa B.V. As I prepared to fly solo on last night's find of the day: Throwdown Edition, I couldn't help but look back at last week's Audi Club vs Audi of America episode. While our guests were winning round after round, a vocal group of viewers were proclaiming that George should have won two of the rounds: Audi dealer stock and Audi classic. Here they are: First on the block is a 2020 Audi exclusive Mo...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49411"] words: Bill, photos: Audi Club North America YouTube channel This last round of our find of the day: Throwdown Edition was a good one.

Rico Abramzon, Audi Area After Sales Manager. Rico is an old friend and he brought his A game especially with the ...

find of the day: 2015 Nogaro Blue special edition Audi S4

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49345"] words: Bill, photos: David Auster Until recently, I was looking for a B8.5 S4 and while there were plenty out there, I was looking for something special...different. George and I were scouring sites when he spotted something he hadn't seen in years and me never; a 2015 Nogaro Blue special edition S4. The announcement from Audi of America: Audi of America is proud to announce the launch of our newest limited edition model: the S4 Nogaro B...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49272"] words: Bill I knew as we were inviting the Episode 7 guests that it would be a very entertaining episode...I just didn't know that I would have a breakdown midway through it. New German Performance was our guest that week: John Martin, Dave Graf, and Mike Humphrey. New German Performance has two locations: Aberdeen, MD and Manassas Park, VA. They are a full service automotive repair center and online parts retailer, comprised of a group o...

find of the day: 2014 Audi allroad Prestige

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49058"] words: Bill, photos: @thekidhodges There are a few cars that will make me genuinely say 'Wow' and when I came across this allroad on our classified page, that word slipped out. I'm currently looking for a new-to-me Audi and while this one is so very tempting, my wife doesn't want another long roof especially another red long roof. But there's a trick here...it's a wrap over Phantom Black Pearl. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full"...

find of the day: 2004 Nogaro Blue S4 Avant 6sp

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48590"] words: Bill, photos: dog2bert There are a few things about Audi that I really love: the Avant and Nogaro Blue are just a couple. Combine them in one vehicle, add a manual transmission and the 4.2 V8 and voila...Heaven. That is what you see here: a 2004 Nogaro Blue S4 Avant with a 6 speed manual transmission.

find of the day: Throwdown Edition Episode 6: Volkswagen vs Audi

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48557"] words: Bill Episode 6 was different. We've pitted chapters against chapters but this time, we went head to head with Team Volkswagen. Specifically Megan Closset (it's not pronounced like closet...think French), product manager of the Golf line and uber-enthusiast; Sean Maynard, marketing specialist at VWoA and builder of VWs I want, and finally returning guest, Jamie Orr, world traveller and also builder of VWs I want...there's a theme ru...

find of the day: Oregon Raceway Park

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48478"] words: Bill, photos: LoopNet, Oregon Raceway Park This isn't our normal find of the day. We normally feature an Audi that can be a daily driver but also a whirlwind on the track...and now you can buy a track to drive your find of the day. For a mere $10,000,000, you can buy Oregon Raceway Park. Here's the ad: Oregon Raceway Park property and management company - Pacific Motorsports Management - For Sale.

find of the day: 1996 Audi S2 Coupe

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48380"] words: Bill, photos: Etienne Maranda Sigh. A nice S2 Coupe or Avant does things to me and this one probably makes it worse. Worse as in it's not located in Europe but right across the border in Canada. Of course, it's a year away from being legal in the States but there are probably a couple of Audi Club Eastern or Western Canada members who can stash it for me... Anyway, I had the misfortune of running across this on our Facebook Audi Cl...

find of the day: 2017 Audi exclusive Merlin Purple SQ5

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48279"] words: Bill, photos: Audi Sylvania When we were raffling an RS 3 with Audi exclusive paint thrown in, the color most people said they wanted was Merlin Purple...and it was also the color most people said they didn't want. It's a love-it or hate-it color. I happen to love it but didn't think I would see it on an Audi SUV until today. While scouring Facebook looking for a find of the day for our Throwdown tonight, I ran across this from a p...

find of the day: 1997 RUF CTR 2 Sport…Wait What?

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48191"] words: Bill, photos: RM Sotheby's OK...I can already hear the question being asked: Why the heck is Audi Club North America featuring a RUF as a find of the day? It's not a bad question...I asked the same when it was sent to me. We've featured vehicles that were powered by Audi engines but clearly this isn't one. So why? A couple of reasons why: It's a cool car (but that's not enough) It ran Pike's Peak (also cool but...) It sports stick...

find of the day: 2004 Audi RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48150"] words: Bill, photos: Craigslist The C8 RS 6 Avant is coming but this one is already here. Ok, it's a C5 and it's in Canada but our Canadian members may want to grab this. The OG RS 6 was only offered in the North American market as a sedan but we being us, we wanted the Avant. Since Canada has the 15 year import rule as opposed to the US 25 year rule, don't be surprised to see more and more of these show up on the other side of the border...

find of the day: 2002 Audi allroad – Winner of the Beater Category

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47929"] words: Bill, photos: Craigslist In Episode 4 of our weekly find of the day: Throwdown Edition, our 1st category was Beaters under $3,000. I figured we would get some hilarious Audi that really defined the word Beater but I was wrong. Will Barber, Audi e-commerce guru and all around good guy, pulled this almost-pristine Highland Green 2002 Audi allroad out of his hat. As you can see, this ain't no beater. Here's the (very short a...

It was the color combo that attracted me to this Avant...a lot of green cars in the 90s/early 00...
