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...

Find of the Day: 2016 Audi exclusive Viper Green S3…a Skittles car with 500hp

words: Bill Cho, photos: Pepper Yandell 25, 5, 1...500. Numbers plucked from the air but these have meaning. Twenty five special S3s were built by Audi exclusive: 5 Vegas Yellow, 5 Glut Orange, 5 Sepang Blue, 5 Misano Red, and my personal favorite, 5 Viper Green. One because this one is for sale and 500...well that's how many horses live under this Viper Green hood. Owner Ryan Blair, like the owner of our last FOTD, is a pure Audi-phile. He is a Master Guild Audi Technician who wo...

Find of the Day: 2001 B5 S4/RS 4 Widebody Sedan

words: Bill Cho, photos: Craigslist and Andrew Armistead (owner extraordinaire) Ok before y'all grab the torches and pitchforks, I know there wasn't a B5 RS 4 sedan but hold on until you've read the details on this car. I ran across this Craigslist ad and it intrigued me not only because it was an RS 4 clone but it had to have been the most detailed ad I've ever read. The list of what was done goes on and on...and on. I sent an email to a friend who sent an email to a friend and befor...

Find of the Day: 1995 Audi RS 2 Avant

words: Bill Cho, photos: Audi Van Beynum In a recent interview, Audi of America's Scott Keogh mentioned a 'surprise RS model' coming to the States. The debate on our page quickly boiled down to an RS 4 Avant or an RS 6 Avant with some people throwing the RS Q5 into the mix. That got me thinking about the granddaddy of them all, the RS 2 Avant. With the earliest ones built in 1994, that's only 1 year away til we can import them into the States. How many can I find for sale in Europe on ...

Find of the Day: 2010 R8 LMS ultra

words: Bill Cho, photos: Jean Lain Vintage, video: NM2255 Car HD Videos (not of the car for sale) This is no ordinary 2010 Audi R8...this is an R8 LMS ultra with a racing history and it's for sale in France. Raced by Team SAINTéLOC, it campaigned at Spa Francorchamps, Nogaro, Monza, and Brands Hatch just to name a few. Beyond that, there's not that much information on this particular vehicle. From the ad: History and restoration Historical Vehicle used from 2011 in th...

Find of the Day: 1985 Audi ur-quattro

words: Bill Cho, photos: Gooding & Company To find a clean Ur-quattro in the States these days is getting harder and harder so I normally look at the European sites to get my fix. These cars were a fantasy of mine since middle school ever since I read about Rally Group B. On a whim, I decided to look Stateside and I ran across this 1985 beauty on the Gooding & Company website. Distinguished Provenance and Likely One of the Most Significant Examples Extant Extremely Origina...

Find of the Day: 2006 A6 Avant to S6 Avant Conversion For Sale…in The States

words: Bill Cho, photos: Craiglist, German AutoHaus Woodinville Words cannot describe the feelings I have for this Sepang Blue Avant. It's a 2006 A6 Avant that has been converted to an S6 Avant. A friend of ours pointed us to the Craigslist ad. That's right, it's a C6 S6 Avant...that's for sale...in Seattle. German AutoHaus Woodinville built this wunderwagen sometime before 2016. The photo of the unpainted Avant pictured in the gallery was uploaded to their Facebook page in October 20...

Find of the Day: 1993 Audi S2 Avant with RS 2 Goodies

words: Bill Cho, photos: mobile.de Any conversation about which Audi is the most desirable and most likely, the RS 2 Avant is at or near the top of the list. Alas (at least for us in the States) we won't be able to legally import one until 2019 because of the 25-year import laws not to mention the sky high prices that are listed for them. Rats. However, there are options. In 1993, Audi produced the S2 Avant powered by the 230hp 2.2L turbo 5. 1993 + 25 years = joy for Americans who want...

Find of the Day: 2008 Audi exclusive RS 4 Sedan in Phantom Black Pearl

words: Bill Cho, photos: Kelly Motorcars Every once in awhile (ok, pretty much every day), I look for cool cars for sale on the internet. Today, I ran across this 2008 RS 4. I see RS 4s come up for sale on a regular basis but what caught my eye on this one was the mileage listed- an almost unbelievable 9,650 miles. I say almost unbelievable because there isn't an actual photo of the odometer with the car on in the ad. The second thing I noticed was that this RS 4 is an Audi exclusive m...
