    1. Find of the Day: Audi Super 90 in Idaho and on Ebay



      Here's something you don't see every day. There's a 1971 Audi Super 90 up for auction on Ebay. This is a little known car developed in a time when Audi was struggling to get back on the map, under Mercedes-Benz control and about to be sold to Volkswagen. The shape is classic - a two-door precursor to the C1 Audi ...
    2. Find of the Day: 1961 DKW Formula Junior Racecar



      Vintage racecars with four-ring heritage aren't terribly common. Look back prior to the modern quattro era and it gets even harder to pick up something with any sort of racing pedigree. In as much, we were surprised to find a DKW-powered formula car on Ebay and hailing from a Philadelphia suburb no less.

      Granted, this car is $33,500, which will weed out tire kickers.

      Here's a rundown on the ...
    3. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Imola Yellow RS 5 Coupe for Sale in UK



      Introduced during the B5 S4 era, Imola Yellow has long been the color for those Audi owners looking to get noticed. For the 2012 model year, this gold hue has finally been pulled from the S4 palette but that won't stop fans of Imola to continue to order it via Audi Exclusive. Case in point is this RS 5 found by quattroholic for sale in the UK via Ebay. ...
    4. Find of the Day: Turbocharged GT... Not an R8 on Ebay



      When you think GT nowadays the brawny new R8 GT comes to mind, however the GT nomenclature dates back further than that albeit in a less exotic fashion. Exotic or not though, the Coupe GT of the 1980s has long been a favorite of Audi enthusiasts for its affordable price yet shape (if not performance) quite close to the iconic ur quattro.

      Sold only in front-wheel drive and with a normally-aspirated ...
    5. Find of the Day: DKW Munga in Need of Work on Ebay



      We've featured DKW Mungas here before though usually in better condition. This 60s and 70s era army Jeep was built by Auto Union subsidiary DKW for the German military for years and this one found its way back to California at some point. This one, of course, needs a lot of work but the price is right if you're looking to build a project car around one.

      Here's the description from ebay.
      ...
    6. Find of the Day: 1960 NSU Prima Scooter Marries Audi Enthusiasm with Vespa Fetish



      We'll admit, we've got a closet fetish for vintage scooters like Vespas. We're not alone. Former Audi board member (now Porsche board member) Wolfgang Hatz once told us he'd had a modded custom Vespa built by a Munich scooter builder for summer vacations in Tuscany. We're jealous. Well... we're kind of jealous. ...
    7. Choice Gear(s): Two Radio Shack Audi quattro Rally Cars, 1 Pristine on Ebay, 1 Not So Pristine on 4T



      If you were a kid when the Audi ur quattro was ripping up the rally scene then you likely remember a day when the toy designers at Radio Shack were a bit more worldly - pushing R/C cars like the Martini Porsche 935 or Audi's own quattro... well before the monster truck cheese peddled today. If you remember those days and care to revisit them, we've found just the thing(s).

      ...
    8. Find of the Day: Museum Quality 7,000 Mile 1983 Audi Coupe GT from NJ listed on Ebay



      Let's face it, unless they're an ur quattro, pristine Audis from the B2 generation have simply disappeared. Short of the ur with its then exotic pricing north of the Porsche 911, the squarish B2s were bought and driven... well, not all of them. We've just found perhaps the nicest example of an early small bumper Coupe GT we've ever seen.

      This 1983 GT is located in Wall, NJ and features a hair over 7,000 miles on the ...
