CC Outtake: The Very Eclectic Driveway – With A Rare Audi V8, No Less

CC 248 001 1200

We like to change up our our daily urban hike routine for a little variety in scenery, automotive and otherwise. Heading up Crest Drive took us past this driveway, which is very occupied by a very eclectic collection of vehicles. The rather rare Audi V8 really caught my attention, and was the crowning touch.

The V8 (1988-1993) was based on a lengthened D1 (Audi 5000/100), and was the first Audi to have a V8, initially a 3.6 L, and later a 4.3 L. It was Audi’s first push into the top league of the German luxury sedans, meaning S-Class and 7-Series. Needless to say, the V8 didn’t exactly take the world by storm, but then Audi has always had the long term picture in its viewfinder.  The V8 was replaced by the Audi A8, which started to make more significant inroads.

The rest? I’ll let you comment.
