1991 Audi V8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

My 1991 V8 Quattro 5 speed has two options according to the original window sticker in the trunk: Pearescent White Clearcoat Metalic, $470 and Compact Disc Changer (6 disc) $890 List price was $52,300 and total with gas guzzler tax was $56,165. Even came standard with a cell phone with hands free operation. I bought it for $2,800 and feel like I just bought a rare collectible for a bargain. The cars 32 valve V8 revs quickly and really comes to life above 3000 rpm to redline at 6500 rpm. I love the sound it makes. Way better exhaust note than the 2007 Mustang Gt I had. The 5 speed is wonderful with this car and combined with Quattro the car just launches very straight and in control.


Best Features

Quattro has a torsen rear diff. and a torsen center diff. in the manual cars. Unbelievable in the snow. I live on a very steep hill and got up it fine last winter in 1 foot of fresh snow. V8 and 5 speed, great combo.


Worst Features

Should have built them all with a 5 speed manual and told the customers that wanted automatics to pound sand. Why couldn't they have built more than 70 or so of these 5 speed cars? I'm buying another 5 speed and storing it in the pole barn. Hope no one else starts hoarding them.

Review

Never knew about these cars. I'm one for "one-of-a-kinds" and this one was just that. I was surprised to never know about. I have the rare 5 speed manual version with the still used 4.2 4OHC 32V V8 engine (276 HP). The car has 227,000 miles and looks, runs, drives, functions like a 30,000 mile car. All wheel drive and 4 doors make this the only car of its kind. (Only 76 imported with the 5 speed). Repairs are not cheap, but they are necessary. Do not ignore regular maintenance!!! Audi is a top quality brand, so its replacement parts will be more expensive. Check the Internet for 30%-50% off what Napa/autozone will charge you. Overall, I love it, and will keep it for a while!


Best Features

Double body panels, heated front/back seats, Bose radio, sound of the V8, acceleration (0-60 in 5.9, 5 speed only), safety, handling, build materials (ex. leather seats have no noticeable wear after 227K!!), interior space. UFO brakes are terrific.


Worst Features

Front clip is blaise. Fuel economy is around 18mpg/23 hwy (I'm an inspired driver). No CD Player, no cupholders.
