words: Bill, photos: StresslessAuto.com It's not easy bein' greenIt seems you blend inWith so many other ordinary thingsAnd people tend to pass you overCause you're not standing outLike flashy sparkles in the waterOr stars in the sky... As the wise Kermit The Frog once sang, it's not easy being green...unless of course, you just happen to be an Audi exclusive Avocado Green R8 V10. Our friend, Will, sent me a link yesterday that blew my mind. I've never seen an Avocado Green...well...anything. ...

Find of the Day: 1954 NSU Max

words: Bill, photos: Hemmings.com It's rare that we put a motorcycle as our Find of the Day...so rare that we've never done it. Also, yes I know that NSU wasn't even in the Volkswagen Group until 1969 but this was too cool not to include. The Max was one of the most popular 250cc motorcycles of the 50s and 60s. It was manufactured from 1952 to 1963. The motor was rated at a whopping 17hp. Here's the ad: The NSU motorcycle is a bike that comes from a company with a fantas...

Find of the Day: Not Your Ordinary 1981 Audi Quattro

photos: PistonHeads I'm rewatching The Grand Tour season 1 and 2 in preparation for the new season and am still fascinated by S2E7 "It's a gas, gas, gas" which tells the story of Jezza’s Favorite Motorsports Battle- Audi vs. Lancia. In that frame of mind, one tends to start looking for an Ur-Quattro to drool over and this one fell into my lap. Featured on PistonHeads, this is a former John Buffum, Hannu Mikola, Robert McBurney, David Sutton Motorsport Audi Rally Team Quattro. The price? ...

Find(s) of the Day: Immaculate 1972 Audi 100 LS plus 1976 1.8T swapped Audi Fox (& rolling shell) plus 520hp 2015 A3 prestige

words: Bill, photos: Aaron K. Nice new shiny Audi vehicles are cool but what's even cooler are nice old shiny Audi vehicles like this one...that just happens to be for sale in the DC area. Here's the Craigslist ad: This is an extremely hard to find 1972 Audi 100 LS. This is the first vehicle Audi brought to to United States and a true collectible. This historic car is the C1 generation, which later became the A6. Exterior is in good condition and has been repainted in the same factory red by t...

Find of the Day: 1994 Audi S2 Avant

words: Bill, photos: Autoscout24.com I know I've mentioned this ad nauseam but you can import RS2s into the States now that it's 2019. Hurray but only if you have the money to find one that isn't beat. However, there is a consolation prize and in itself, not a bad prize at all. The RS2's little brother is the S2. Unlike the Avant only RS2, the S2 came in an Avant, coupe, and the very rare sedan version. I've picked the Avant because who doesn't love Avants? Powered by a 230hp 2.2L turbo 5, it'...

Find of the Day: 2008 Phantom Black RS 4 Cabriolet

words: Bill Cho, photos: Audi Mentor Every once in awhile a unicorn pops up and thanks to the sharp eye of a friend, this unicorn came across my Facebook feed. And oh man, what a unicorn. Only 300 RS 4 Cabriolets were brought to the States which made it more exclusive than the flagship R8 and all of them sported a 6 speed manual...pardon me while I wipe the drool off my face. This one is for sale at Audi Mentor and it only has 22,487 miles. Here's the ad: Used 2008 Audi RS 4 C...

Find of the Day: Audi RS 3 4×4 Tarmac Stage Rally Car

words: Bill Cho, photos: Motorsport Auctions For most of our Find of the Day segments, we highlight vehicles that we don't get in the States or are an interesting specimen. I think this counts as both. When I 1st saw this RS 3, I thought it was just a replica with big a## lights and a wing on the back but then I saw pics of the interior. Is this a real tarmac stage rally car?  I mean, I wouldn't know a real one if it was parked in my garage but it looks real. There are no ...

Find of the Day: 1994 S4 Avant (C4)

photos: suchen.mobile.de Yesterday, a 1993 Ur-S4 with just under 12,000 miles sold on Bring A Trailer for $33,000. Thirty...three...thousand...dollars.  With this in mind, I decided to search the sites for a similar S4 to see how much people were asking for them but then I ran across this. This is a 1994 C4 S4 Avant. While it's not a low mileage example (205,631 kms/127,773 miles), it is slightly more affordable at €6,000 ($7,742) and in my opinion, a more desirable ...

Find of the Day: 1994 Audi exclusive RS 2 in Porsche Oak Green

words: Bill Cho, photos: autoscout24.com The last time we featured a FOTD RS 2, it was a 1995 Polar Silver example with only 38,000 miles and was listed for €69,911.00 ($89,597.36 USD). This one can be had for quite a bit less and it's a 1994 model which means you only have to wait a couple of months to legally import it to the States. Located in Amsterdam at De Automobielfabriek, this RS 2 has 126,395 km (78,538 miles) and can be had for significantly less that the Polar Silver...

Find of the Day: 2001 Audi A8L

words: Bill Cho, photos: Classic Driver In 1994, Audi debuted a new vehicle at the Geneva Auto Show, the A8 (D2 Typ 4D). Build on the new aluminum Audi Space Frame, it was a competitor for the Mercedes Benz S Class and the BMW 7 Series. This particular Cashmere Grey Pearl A8 is the Long Wheel Based version which added 5 inches of rear legroom. Also, it only has 55,100 miles. That's only an average of 3,250 miles a year! The ad in Classic Driver reads as follows: This 2001 ...

Find of the Day: 1987 Audi 5000S Sedan

It's fair to say that the more obviously collectible cars from 1980s Audi lineup almost always include the word "quattro" or "turbo" in the name... and preferably both of these monikers. Even still, any pristine example of specimen from this increasingly rare era of car is worthy of note. Take for instance this 1987 Audi 5000 S sedan found that's popped up in Gaithersburg, MD. Without the aforementioned badges, this 5000 S is an obviously more tame example. It's front-wheel drive and ...

Glorious Find of the Day: 1982 Audi quattro…Pre-Production Prototype

words: Bill Cho, photos: autoclassics.com Every once in awhile, you run across a car that seems too good to be true. This is one of them...and it's true. This is reportedly one of the twelve right-hand drive prototypes built on the 'C' chassis and is likely the first one in the United Kingdom. When Audi built the production right-hand drive models, they were built on the 'D' chassis making the twelve prototypes very unique. What makes this one even more unique, it's one of two prototypes...

Find of the Day: 1985 Audi Ur-quattro on Bring A Trailer

[words: Bill Cho, photos: Bring A Trailer] If you have been following our Find of the Day stories, you'll notice that we like Ur-quattros...a lot. So when I opened my daily email from bringatrailer.com, I was excited to see this heading: 1985 Audi Ur-quattro. This Tornado Red example is a Canadian market car and is said to be one of only 99 sold during its run. Here's the ad: This 1985 Audi Ur-Quattro was originally purchased at Capilano Audi in Vancouver, British Columb...

Find of the Day: James Sofronas’ GMG Racing R8 Spyder

For anyone considering picking up a current-generation Audi R8 Spyder, we've found a very slightly used example on the market that may be of particular interest. The OEM plus looking Spyder you see here is owned by GMG Racing owner and Audi R8 GT4 racer James Sofronas, and it could be yours. This R8 Spyder is a 2017, and has logged just 1,400 miles. And, while it hasn't logged much distance, James utilized his own GMG Racing shop to make sure it was highly tailored to his tastes. The rund...

Find of the Day: 1983 Ur-quattro

[words: Bill Cho, photos: Hunting Ridge Motors] The cars of my youth keep coming back to haunt me. Haunting me because they're getting rare and the prices of the survivors are climbing. Finding a Ur-quattro in any condition is getting harder and even if you did, the price reflects the rarity. The 1985 example we featured at the beginning of the year sold at auction for $81,400. Oof. This one is offered by Hunting Ridge Motors for just...$59,900. A veritable bargain. Here's the...

Find of the (future) Day: 2019 Hot Wheels Audi Sport quattro (1:64 Scale)

[photo: Hot Wheels Dream Team Instagram]  Instagram is great; it's one of my favorite social media platforms (here is where I put a commercial that we also have an Instagram account, AudiClubNA). Not only can you see the latest things your friends visited, ate, drove, you can find gems like this. Scrolling through last night, this diecast caught my eye (obviously). Hot Wheels Dream Team previewed this Sport quattro. From reading the replies, it looks to be released sometime in 2019 ...

Find of the Day: Audi exclusive Arrow Grey Pearl R8 V10 Coupe RWS

[words: Bill Cho, photos: Coleton Guerin, Clear Detailing] Yes I know our last Find of the Day was also an Audi exclusive R8 V10 Coupe RWS but since there are only 320 landing on our shores and fewer in Audi exclusive colors, any find is a Find of the Day. This gorgeous example is painted in Audi exclusive Arrow Grey Pearl. Coleton Guerin, owner of Clear Detailing in Greely, CO and photographer of these photos, spent over 12 hours  bringing out the brilliance of this color. ...

Find of the Day: 1985 Ur-quattro

[words: Bill Cho, photos: Bring A Trailer] Ahhhhh...Bring A Trailer. Why must you torment me so? For those not in the know, Bring A Trailer (or BAT) is a website for finding great vintage cars in one spot. Also a website for wasting a lot of time dreaming of vehicles from your dreams. Take this 1985 Ur-quattro. Said to be one of the 73 imported to the States for the updated 1985 model, it's finished in Stone Grey Metallic over grey leather and everything looks great. Ad: Thi...

Find of the Day: 2002 Audi S6 Avant – Big Turbos and Manual Transmission

words: Bill Cho, photos: Craiglist  After a title like that, do I even to explain why this is a Find of the Day? I mean who wouldn't want a manual transmission swapped S6 Avant? But wait, there's more. This is not a wolf in sheep's clothing; this is a freaking wild boar in pig's clothing. The 'normal' S6 Avant came with the venerable 4.2L V8. This beast has the 2.7T V6 with two big Tial 605 v1 turbos installed. The ad reads: For sale is my 2002 Audi S6 with a built 2.7t mot...

Find of the Day: 1990 Ur-quattro 20V RR

words: Bill Cho, photos: 4 Star Classics The Ur-quattro will always be a special car and because so, they are getting harder and harder to find in good condition. This one classifies as "good" if not "great" condition.  The last of the breed, this is a 1990 example with only 81,092 miles since new. The description says there's no damage aside from a small crack in the front splitter and only a couple of small blemishes in the Crystal Silver Metallic paint.  All the glass and lens...
