[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="73458"] words: Bill, photos: Jeff Lavery The Audi V8...yes there was a model just called the Audi V8.

Find of the Day: 2008 Audi R8 6-Speed Manual

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70391"] words: Bill, photos: Nate Morley The Audi R8. These days when you mention 'Audi R8', people immediately think V10 but back in the mid-2000s, it meant a much anticipated Audi supercar...with a V8. A lot of people scoff at the R8 V8 but the R8 was a game changer. Heck, even Tony Stark drove one. Combine that sonorous 4.2 V8 with the snick-snick of a manual and you have perfection. This Phantom Black beauty has all those and then some. Her...

Find of the Day: 2004 Nogaro Blue Audi S4

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70018"] words: Bill, photos: The Eclectic Garage When the B6 S4 burst onto the scene, it was the first time a V8 was stuffed into the B-chassis. Enthusiasts were enamored with the throaty sounds coming out of the dual exhaust. We were fortunate enough to get a sedan, a wagon (Avant), and a convertible version. The 4.2 V8 was carried over to the B7 generation but then, it was gone. This one is a B6 S4 sedan in what some people would say is the ul...

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...

Imola Yellow, Nogaro Blue, and now a Moro Blue Avant. This has to be one of my favorite generations: a B6 V8 manual S4 Avant. This one ticks off all the boxes and it's blue.

You have to give it the Lambo driver for having fun with his Gallardo...I mean if you could, wouldn't you? Enjoy the video below. [embe...

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.
