    1. Find of the Day: Bonkers 570-hp B5 RS 4 Build on Ebay



      A wise man once told me to "Buy it Built". You'll earn a hell of a lot of respect and pride when you build your car from the ground up but you'll save a hell of a lot of cash if you buy it built. Often built cars are a total bargain, though we're sure whether this Bonkers B5 RS 4 build qualifies will be hotly debated. What we're pretty sure won't be ...
    2. Find of the Day: Own Your Own R8 LMS. Phoenix Racing Offers 2011-Spec Cars for Sale.



      Yes the R8 GRAND-AM is now testing in the USA and if, like us, you're insanely jealous of Ian Baas and the boys at APR who'll be able to race the thing this summer then perhaps you should turn your attention to Team Phoenix. Turns out the German team is selling off two of their R8s from the 2011 racing season (chassis ...
    3. Find of the Day: Audi Coupe 100 S from 2011 New York Auto Show Audi A7 Launch Display



      For those who may have missed it, Audi of America hosted the American launch of the A7 at the IAC building in lower Manhattan last spring during New York Auto Show week. Of course the A7 wasn't the only star of the event, a scale paper crafted A7 was also there in addition to this particular red 100 Coupe S.

      Of course the Bertone-designed ...
    4. Find of the Day: 1985 Well-Preserved Ur-quattro in Everett Washington Isn't Cheap



      As the iconic Ur quattro becomes more and more rare... at least the nicely preserved ones... the prices seem to be moving healthily northward. Take for example this 107,000 mile Titan Red example we've located in Everett Washington. At a listed price of $25,888, this is one of the more expensive specimens we've seen, but it's not in the stratosphere and if it is well-preserved then the number is certainly fair. From photos, ...
    5. Find of the Day: RS 2 Powered Ur-quattro



      Only really sold in any number (and small numbers at that) for two model years in the USA, the Ur quattro isn't exactly what you'd call common. Finding any example, much less a clean one has become increasingly hard for American fans of Audi's rallying icon. And when it comes to modified ones, ideas of proper upgrades can certainly vary. All that being said, we think we've stumbled across a modified example that most will agree qualifies ...
    6. Barn Find of the Day: 1984 4000S quattro from Michigan



      If you're a regular reader then you know those of us in the Fourtitude offices have a soft spot for the older "small" bumper 4000S quattro. Built just one year in the USA with quattro and the original Giugiaro design still intact (i.e. pre-facelift), the 4000 quattro is an oddity that flies under the radar while the iconic ur-quattro gets all the notoriety.

      Back in its day, the '84 4000S quattro was nowhere near ...
    7. Find of the Day: DKW Munga on Crack Part 2



      We knew we'd seen this DKW Munga before as soon as we spotted it on the Phoenix Craigslist. Yellow paint, jacked stance and a VW air-cooled boxer swap make the car decidedly one of a kind so there wasn't much mistaking it. We saw it (and featured it) once before in these pages HERE.

      Back then the DKW was in Fort Lauderdale. Now it's in Phoenix. We're not sure of the story but we still ...
    8. Find of the Day: Suzuka Grey Audi Exclusive 2010 S4 that We Can Vouch for Personally



      One nice thing about ordering a special Audi Exclusive car is that it's quite easily recognizable. When our previous Jet Blue Audi S5 hit the market, we knew its origins immediately and while we've seen at least one other Suzuka Grey S4 we're positive we've just come across our 2010 4 Season Audi S4 tester on our Exhaustiv car listing aggregator.

    9. 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 ...
    10. 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.
