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......

[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 ...

[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. Actually, this was passed onto me by a friend through another friend but I assure you, this isn't one of those 'whisper down the line' type of things; it's real.

Seen here is a 2017 Audi exclusive S8 plus in Miami Blue. If it's even possible to be more different from the next S8 plus, this one is an MTM Talladega R version. So what is an MTM Talladega R? The package adds a custom aero kit mage up of front bumper with carbon inlets, side sills, carbon rear diffuser, and a rear wing but it's...

find of the day: 2005 Nogaro Blue Audi S4 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="46711"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer This Audi is a triple play: Nogaro Blue, Avant, 6speed manual. That's all that really needs to be said. I might as well just put photos here because that's all I'm going to be paying attention to from now on. But here's the ad anyway: This 2005 Audi S4 Avant was first registered in Southern California and was acquired by the seller in 2018.

Much better than the regular ads you see on Facebook, definitely better than ads you see on craigslist, and even better than some dealer ads. Sadly, after spending a lot of time and money on it, Nick is selling it but for a great reason...he has a child on the way and the TT...

find of the day: 1988 Audi 90 quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="46152"] words: Bill, photos: Al Stephens 1988 wasn't a kind year for Audi in America. From selling roughly 75,000 cars in 1985 to plunging to 23,000 in 1988 due to the unsubstantiated Audi 5000 'unintended acceleration' scandal, Audi was struggling to bring in buyers. One family, however, was not phased by the hysterics. They bought a new Audi 90 quattro off the lot and drove it home. That 90 quattro is the car you see here. [gallery link="none" ...

find of the day: Audi R8 LMP900 Endurance Racer

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="45804"] Words: Tim Enders, Photos: Fiskens and Petrolicious In the world of endurance racing, Audi has reigned as king for most of the past few decades. For those not familiar with the sport, endurance racing involves taking a race car and not only making it incredibly fast, but making it be able to go that fast for up to 24 hours with the only stops being for more fuel and tires. While Formula 1 cars might have an outright speed advantage, ...

Our find of the day is a 2007 RS 4 art car painted by pop artist, Romero Britto. This isn't a wrap but a genuine hand-painted work of art by Britto. Britto added his bold and vivid vision to what it looks like a Daytona Grey canvas. This car was commissioned by Audi for Art Chicago 2007, America's longest running international and contemporary art fair. [gallery link="none" c...
