2001 Audi S8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 5A)
This German car is for drivers; people who love to drive. Of any car I have ever owned this is the one I would pick if I had to drive across the country. It reminds me of an NFL linebacker, big, swift, powerful and nimble all at the same time. I originally purchased it with 92000 miles. It now has 140000 and all I have replaced is tires, idler pulley and serpentine belt and fuel pump. I use 0W40 synthetic oil in it. My wife is now driving it and has fallen in love. She says that it spoils you as you start rating all cars against it, which is unfair. Only 531 imported into us in 2001-2003. It is a German muscle machine made for drivers. DOT governed at 155 mph. (too bad)
Ride, handling, power and interior and exterior work. Fit and finish is luxury gone wild.
The RS6 450 hp power plant. The S8 is the same engine without the RS6 twin turbos.
