find of the day: Throwdown Edition Episode 7: New German Performance – Episode 8 Preview: Audi of America

[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. Here's the ad: [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48606"] Highlights THIS... is a 2004 Audi S4 Avant, finished in ...

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. Sale features Oregon’s Premier A...

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...

find of the day: 2003 Goodwood Green Audi S6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47919"] words: Bill, photos: Chris Holt I was scrolling through Facebook trying to find my next picks for our weekly find of the day: Throwdown Edition livestream when I ran across this. I knew that it would probably be gone before Friday so I decided to present it here. What you are looking at is a 1 of 2 Goodwood Green with Ebony/Alcantara S6 Avant. It was the color combo that attracted me to this Avant...a lot of green cars in the 90s/early 00...

find of the day: 2014 Audi exclusive Nogaro Blue RS 7

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47762"] words: Bill, photos: Cars.com and German Cars for Sale This car may look familiar...it was one of the cars featured on our find of the day: Throwdown Edition livestream last week. What was astonishing to me was that this Audi exclusive Nogaro Blue over Crimson Red was in the Daily Driver segment where the price is capped at $50,000. That's right...you can get this RS 7 for under $50,000. I was astounded. I didn't even look at these for ...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47714"] words: Bill Episode 2 of find of the day: Throwdown Edition is done and once again, people played fast and light with the "rules". We did, however, have a structure that we adhered to: 1) Beater/Bargain: $5,000 or under 2) Daily: $50,000 cap and 3) Dream: no cap. Our ragtag band of guests included Ryan Compton, Audi Club Board member and hoarder of MK1 TTs; Tim Enders, former VWVortex/Fourtitude staff and Ducati rider who wants to motor a...

find of the day: 2003 Daytona Grey Audi RS 6

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47298"] words: Bill, photos: Speedärt Motorsports With the start of our weekly find of the day video episodes, I thought it would hard for me to find an Audi that I can just use for the website but I didn't have to worry; there are so many great ones out. Take this Daytona Grey RS 6 at Speedärt Motorsports in Miami for example. While searching for my three picks for this week's episode, I ran across this and knew I couldn't wait until Friday......

find of the day: Weekly Throwdown Edition Episode 1 Recap and a Preview of Episode 2

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47292"] words: Bill So Episode 1 of the find of the day: Throwdown Edition is in the bag and what a fun and learning experience it was. All of our guests brought their A game and as we had hoped, there was great discussion and banter amongst everyone but the questions remains...which Audi S2 should have been crowned as THE find of the day? Will Barber's 600hp S2 hillclimb race car or Jamie Orr's S2 Avant? John Acton may actually buy the ur-S4 ...

find of the day: 600HP Audi S2 Race Car

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47256"] words: Bill, photos: Race Cars Direct Audi Club did our 1st find of the day Throwdown Edition last Friday and while it was fun to see who brought what to the table, a fierce debate broke out in the comments and in our roundtable of what car should have actually won. Will Barber, our Audi of America club liaison, found this gem: a 600hp Audi S2 hill climb race car. Oof...full sequential gearbox and fully FIA homologated. This should have ...

Cinco (Cylinders) de Mayo find of the day: 1985 Copenhagen Blue Audi Sport quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47087"] words: Bill, photos: Woow Motors I know I've already posted a find of the day that also happens to be 5 cylinders today but this beats that...by a Swiss country mile. I say Swiss because it is located in Couvet Val-de travers, Switzerland. This is a Copenhagen Blue Sport quattro. I have to admit, it's my second favorite color after Malachite Green...or Tornado Red. Actually, it could be Toyota Beige® and I would still love it. Here's th...

Well, I may have just found it for you.

What you see before you is a claimed zero-mile crate 2.2l 5-cylinder engine. [gallery li...
