2001 Audi S8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


This is my favorite sedan in the world for a four season climate. Understated competence, subtle luxury, mysteriousness, and timeless style. I drive it daily, but it shines brightest on 3 or 4 passenger road trips to ski destinations, everyone is supremely comfortable as I power through snow drifts and navigate icy corners. The S8 is very fast and light on her feet because of the strong V8 and light aluminum frame, but cops don't notice her. Pretty darn good mileage for 360 hp, amazing interior finish that is not too complicated or gizmo oriented. Gorgeous dash at night, all the creature comforts you can ask for (ahem, except good cupholders!). It is a fantastic car.

Best Features

The sport seats, the sport steering wheel, the sport accelerator pedal! Aluminium frame makes her light on her feet despite the luxurious size.

Worst Features

Okay, you're not supposed to drink anything at 150 mph on the autobahn, but I don't drive on the Autobahn! Sure would like more/better cupholders!
