Find of the Day: 2016 Audi S6 Widebody

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="65161"] words: Bill, photo: Mgeorgem via cars & bids Editor's note: This was meant to be published on Monday, October 18 but I was ill and didn't hit the publish button. This was sold for $45,250 on 10/21/2021. Well this is different. I don't think I've ever seen a widebody S6 before...a couple of R8s yes, an S6 no. Aside from the obvious, this S6 also has the power to back up the looks. Here's the ad: [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="f...

Find of the Day: 1983 Audi Quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64937"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer The first thing you'll notice about this Quattro is the striking color. Originally black, it has been repainted in Galaxy Blue. While purists may chafe at the color change, I love it...similar to Sepang Blue which is one of my favorite Audi blues. Here's the ad: [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64931"] This 1983 Audi Quattro was purchased by the seller in 2006, and it was subsequently ...

Find of the Day: 1983 Audi quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64652"] words: Bill, photos: Throttlestop The ur-quattro was a classic the moment it arrived but its legacy has grown over the years. Today, it's getting harder to find one in pristine condition but here's one. It only has 52,167 miles and one spot of rust on the hatch. I don't know the ownership history of this car but it's being offered by Throttlestop in Wisconsin. Throttlestop just happens to be a sponsor of our Wisconsin chapter so maybe one...

Find of the Day: 2001 Audi RS 4 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64248"] words: Bill, photos: Mayor Cars After the RS2 Avant and the RS 6 Avant, the next lusted after Avant would probably be the RS 4 Avant and the B5 one at that. While there are more than a couple in the States, there's still the 25 year rule in place so how this one got in is a mystery. And the ad doesn't give you any details on really anything. Here's the ad: [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64231"] Year: 2001 Make...

Find of the Day: 2009 Audi R8 6sp…RWD

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64068"] words: Bill, photos: Jay Dub I love the MK1 R8 especially the V8 model. I know the V10 is the lustful one to get but the V8 will always have a spot in my heart especially with that gated manual. But one thing both the V8 and V10 has is quattro. For years and into the 2nd gen, quattro was always standard until the RWS model was revealed in 2017. Some though looked at other RWD supercars and wished their MK1 R8 were the same. Take this 2009...

Find of the Day: 1991 Audi 20V Turbo quattro Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64018"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer I've seen this Avant before...well, I'm 91% certain I've seen it before. Many moons ago in a different life, I was volunteering at a United Way Day of Caring and our assignment was in a park in Nazareth, PA. It was hot, we were moving rocks the size of Beetles from one pile to another, and out of a crew of 7, there were only 3 of us moving those rocks. Needless to say, I was not in the best of moods. W...

Heck, want to be King/Queen at the next historics race? Here's your chance. This R15 V10 TDI is for sale from Canepa. We've featured another FOTD from Canepa and it was a 1986 Audi Sport quattro possibly owned by Frank Beddor (founder of the Club).

Find of the Day: 670WHP 1995 Audi S6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="63708"] words: Bill, photos: Dan Gray via collectingcars.com With great power comes great responsibility and the urS6 Avant can be called a great vehicle. This one I've seen in person and it looks as good as it does in these pics. Dan Gray is the owner of this beauty. He's also the one who built the green B7 RS 4 Avant we featured in a past issue of quattro Magazine so you know this one is built right...awesome.

Find of the Day: 1991 Audi Coupe quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="63475"] words: Bill, photos: matt_20v via Bring A Trailer I remember seeing a Coupe quattro for the first time way back when (I'm old) and being mesmerized by it. Today, I get the same feeling because that design is so timeless and beautiful...and few and far between. I used to see one run around town the last several years but it has disappeared. Did the owner move? Was the Coupe wrecked? Did they sell it? Who knows but it's a sorely missed sigh...

Find of the Day: 2012 Audi exclusive Nogaro Blue A4 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="62783"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer Nogaro Blue and Avant brings the killer Audi RS 6 Avant RS Tribute edition to mind but this isn't that. 25 Tribute editions made it to the States but I wonder how many B8 A4 Avants in Nogaro Blue are here? I can't remember when I last saw a B8/B8.5 Avant that wasn't an allroad and I live on the East Coast where wagons are almost everywhere and in fact, this Avant is located in Maryland. Not only is t...

Find of the Day: 7K mile 2002 Audi TT ALMS

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="62190"] words: Bill, photos: GeneG via Bring A Trailer The last week or so, a couple of cars have popped up for sale with ridiculously low miles. There is the 2002 Volkswagen GTI 25th Anniversary with eight miles on it that is going on the auction block later this month at Silverstone Auctions and then there's this 2002 Audi TT ALMS with 7k miles. While not so ridiculous as 8 miles, this specimen is quite the find and quite the TT. Only 1000 ...

Find of the Day: 2002 Nimbus Grey Audi TT 225 Roadster

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="61629"] words: Bill, photos: TW Adamek Almost from the moment the MK1 TT burst onto the scene, it gained a cult following. Jeremy Clarkson called the styling deliberately hip and cool but in his usual subtle sarcastic manner. And of course that lead into the usual 'hairdresser' jokes etc. But enthusiasts knew that this Audi was special especially when combined with a 225hp engine, 6 speed manual transmission, quattro, and the ultimate interior:...

Find of the Day: 2016 Audi Sepang Blue RS 7

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="61297"] words: Bill, photos: J Cole Photographs Every once in awhile, I get into a blue phase for the Find of the Days like this Sprint Blue RS 5 Cabriolet the other day and who could blame me? Audi has some of the most beautiful hues of blue and Sepang Blue ranks right up there. I also love very descriptive ads and this particular ad is just that. Here it is: I’m thinking about selling my 2016 Audi RS7, I am in no rush to do so, as I love the ...

Find of the Day: 2014 Audi Sprint Blue RS 5 Cabriolet

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="61261"] words: Bill, photos: Jim Newhouse Ok...this is one Audi that I knew existed but have never seen in the flesh and that's a shame...because in this color combination (or any other one), it's beautiful. I spent time in an S5 coupe with the same interior and let me tell you, it was a pain to keep clean but this one looks brand new. Here's the ad: About This Vehicle Driven 15,200 miles Automatic transmission Exterior colo...

Find of the Day: 1983 Audi 20V-Powered Quattro 6-Speed

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="61011"] words: Bill, photos: Chris S. via Bring A Trailer Chris isn't unfamiliar with restoring and older Audi. We had another one of his as a Find of the Day last year. I said this about his S2/RS2 Coupe quattro clone: First of all, I have to say this is how you do an ad for a car. Lots of details, lots of clear photos that are actually in focus. Well, he doesn't disappoint with this BAT ad. Here it is: This 1983 Audi Qu...

Find of the Day: 2021 ABT RS7-R 1 of 125

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="60662"] words: Bill, photos: GMP Performance A new Audi RS 7 is a pretty stunning car but what if you wanted one that was limited to just 125 examples made worldwide? GMP Performance has one just for you and not just one but the first one built in the States.

Find of the Day: 24K-Mile 2012 Audi A8L W12

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="60049"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer Now that I have your attention, let's turn ours to this beast.While it's not an S8, this is no slouch. Back in 2012, Car & Driver stated 'Ease is among the chief differentiators between the obnoxiously wealthy and those who are merely ultra-rich. Ease of buying your way into finer polo clubs, out of lesser felonies, into better key parties, that sort of thing. When it comes to the Audi A8L W-12, th...

Find of the Day: 2000 Audi S4 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="59745"] words: Bill, photos: autotrader.ca Here's something I just learned today...apparently the B5 S4 Avant was not sold in Canada. I figured our neighbors to the north were a good demographic for an AWD wagon to tackle those Great White North snow storms. So where do you go if you want one of the most beloved Avants? Apparently Japan. Here's the ad: Up for sale is this extremely tidy Audi S4 Avant Euro Spec unicorn - this car was imported fro...

Find of the Day: 48-Mile 2021 Audi exclusive Voodoo Blue RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="59665"] words: Bill, photos: EMC911 via PCarMarket Ok, I tried not to have RS 6 Avants as Finds of the Day because it's just low hanging fruit. BUT the only other one we featured was an RS Tribute edition and with only 25 of them imported to the States, I had no choice. I mean it would have been irresponsible for me not to post that. And now...oops, I did it again. Regardless of the mileage on this one (it's only 43 miles by the way), i...

Find of the Day: 14k-mile 1983 Audi Ur-quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="59505"] words: Bill, photos: Ambassador Automobile Amazon Blue...we've featured another Amazon Blue Ur-quattro before nicknamed Der Kommisar. That was a 1985 model with 83k miles and was listed for $55,900. This one is a 1983 model with...14k miles. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="59496"] I thought the building looked familiar and sure enough, the same dealer also had a C4 S6 Avant for sale which was a former Find of the Da...
