1995 Audi S6 Avant

There's nothing better than a fast station wagon. On the list of cars I will own someday is an S6 Avant.

This S6 Avant is based on Audi's C4 platform. It's powered by a turbocharged 5 cylinder engine. 60 MPH comes in just over 6 seconds and its top speed is just under 150 MPH. Being an Audi, it's AWD.

This is one of those "tastefully modified" cars, meaning the mods are useful, but don't change the basic look or goodness of the car. It's been chipped and has a European 6 speed transmission. It also has European headlights with aftermarket HIDs. The windows have a 50% tint, which I'm not a fan of (and would be illegal in some states), but the rest of the body is stock. It appears to have been well maintained.

Located somewhere in CA, click here to see the eBay listing.

A big thanks to John for sending me the link to this car!

50% tint? Back in my high school days, we used to tint our windows to 3% and just roll them down when we saw police.....even in the winter.

Ah.... youth.

I saw a 2000 or 2001 version a few months back. I could tell it was a beautiful car to begin with. I thought about fixing it up but then learned how infamous the electronics where. If you search teh web for audi and sensors you get more hits than a punching bag. Tales about multiple replacements and poorly trained mechanics trying to deal with these machines.
