Lovely S8. Well looked after. JKM were my Indie of choice when I was in Portsmouth.
Big bucks but there have been higher prices paid recently for that 'special' S8.

Sounds like a lot to me, and - though I've never seen it in the flesh - I wouldn't put it in my top 5 colour choices in terms of saleability, and (sadly...) the market isn't interested in what you've put in to it. However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I may be wrong.

GLWTS - how come you're selling?

Sad day James....you will miss her!

I personally love this colour and considering the work gone in to it and the condition, someone whos on the look out for an S8 would do well with this as all the big jobs have been done already.

Ive recently been looking at C5 RS6s as I think its an itch I need to scratch, but they scare me even more than an 8 to own

If I had the space for this Id be making plans with you. Best of luck pal...Im hoping you will have second thoughts though and decided to keep her

Good luck with the sale - as others have said the price is perhaps a tad optimistic especially at that mileage with no sorted gearbox as it's in the "zone" when the gearbox could fail - hopefully enough oil changes were done early and often enough to prevent that but I'd be looking to chip that price down towards future gearbox refurb costs if I was looking to buy one long term, otherwise its pretty faultless and in my view a nice unusual and attractive colour, and well looked after

Having seen it in the flesh recently at Beaulieu, I concur it's a lovely colour and a really well cared for car.

Sad to see you selling it James but I wish you luck with the sale and I hope you get what you're asking for it. Considering the rarity of these cars and the cost to maintain them, I think they're still very undervalued right now.

I do remember this lovely car. Good luck with sale.

I’m not following the car market, but is there at least one example of old Audi model that appreciated in price and sells, say, for 50,000+ for a nice example?? Just curious.

The original Audi Quattro Turbo can fetch well over 50K. This one sold for 72K last year

Don’t even ask what the SWB Sport quattros fetch - although never a series production model

I think the uR is the daddy in terms of appreciation for the best examples - 2nd would probably be the B5 RS4 but it’s nowhere near 50k territory in the UK except for the odd garage queen that’s never been driven

Very much like the S8 the OP has - rare colour and looks stunning ��

ETA - the RS2 is probably second, as production numbers were pretty small to start with and many were scrapped as they were never cheap to run
