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