This 1990 V8 quattro was well maintained and taken care of. A couple of years ago the owner's Nephew was handed the keys. We are told the body was very nice before this. 2Bennett is always proud and very appreciative to be put in the position to bring a car back to it's former self for the family that bought it new. Maybe improve a few things to better than new along the way.


1990 Audi V8.

3.6L Aluminum engine, quattro, auto transmission


112,000 miles


The car was first road tested and fully evaluated. Every system base lined. Before anything is taken apart or adjusted the starting point is documented. From climate control to drivability and road noise.

Front end body removed. You might have noticed the Nology spark plug wires in this photo. We replaces spark plugs, wires, and some sensors to get a baseline of the engines performance before taking the car apart. The engine and transmission removed for a full mechanical rebuild.
image The carpet and many other interior parts show their use. We are able to figuratively roll the clock back and make cars appear like new, with customer approval.

The engine is undergoing a refreshments including a rebuild of the heads.

We have torn the engine down to replace all gaskets, seals, and electrical senders.

Audi V8 Engine Progress continues with the assembled engine, new power steering pump, new and re-plated hardware, and a bunch of things this photo does not show. The new-old-stock complete transmission is hard to miss. We still have one left in our inventory and it is said to be the last worldwide.
