Find of the Day: 2003 Audi S8…6sp Manual Swap

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="56070"] words: Bill, photos: Bring-A-Trailer Normally I wouldn't place a D2 S8 with 161k miles as a Find of the Day but this one is a little different...it has a 6speed manual transmission swap. Does that elevate this S8 just a bit? Here's the ad: This 2003 Audi S8 is finished in Ming Blue Pearl over white leather and is powered by a 4.2-liter V8 paired with a six-speed manual transmission that was installed by a previous owner.

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="55718"] words: Bill, photos: Rick Farnsworth While on my daily hunt for a Find of the Day, I ran across this on our Audi Club North America - Classifieds Facebook page. I love finding an Audi that is pretty rare and/or well taken care of and this big sedan is both.

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="55260"] words: Bill, photos: Sea-Auto Sales There's something about finding older cars in the Pacific Northwest.

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="55127"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer I love this car. I mean who wouldn't? But my love isn't just towards the design nor the drivetrain...it's that interior.

Here's the ad: This 1981 Audi Quattro is a European-market model that was imported into the US in 1982 through California Porsche-Aud...

Find of the Day: 1986 Audi Coupe GT Commemorative Edition

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54644"] words: Bill, photos: Cars & Bid When you think of Audi in the 80s, a couple of  iconic vehicles pop into mind: The Sport quattro and  the Quattro (ur-quattro). The Coupe GT was a version that didn't have the fender bulges of its muscular brother nor the turbo...nor the all-wheel drive. Yes, this is a front-wheel drive Audi but this one is a little special - it's a Commemorative Edition. The Commemorative Edition was set apar...

Find of the Day: Bagged 1992 Audi V8 quattro Turbo 6 Speed

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="53946"] words: Bill, photos: V8 D11 The Audi V8 (D1) is one of those vehicles that, while innovative, is mostly forgotten in the US. The 1st car from Audi to use a V8, it was also the 1st Audi to combine quattro with an automatic transmission. The Audi V8 quattro DTM won back-to-back DTM Driver's Title with Hans-Joachim Stuck and Frank Biela in 1990 and 1991. I personally only know one person who owned an Audi V8 but I'm sure there are plenty of ...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="52865"] words: Bill, photos: Niche Motors The Avant is big news again in the Audi world as the RS 6 Avants have finally hit our shores and the A6 allroad is back. Interest from Audi enthusiasts hasn't changed though as they seek out desirable Avants of yore and I think this specimen will grab someone's attention. Obviously the color, Imola Yellow, is hard to miss but there are a couple of other points: it's a beloved B5, it's a 6sp manual, and i...
