Since it’s part in Ronin, one of the most iconic car chase scenes in film history the Audi S8 has enjoyed a cult status amongst car fans.
However, most people in the street would not stop and stare if one were to drive by. Although that is part of the beauty of the car in the eyes of many of its fans. To the untrained eye, it may look like an unexciting old luxo barge, but this is one barge that packs a punch. With around 360hp from a 4.2 litre V8 it can achieve 0-60 in around 6 seconds and will blast up to a limited 155mph top speed in a breeze.
The cars have been overlooked over the last few years and prices are starting to rise as people have started to see what an asset it could be to a collection as a usable, everyday modern classic.
This particular example stood out as an example in good condition with a reasonable mileage and plenty of extras at £6,275. The price is at the high end of the market but in my opinion, a well looked after example will be worth the premium in years to come.
