Audi introduced its new V8 in 1988, targeting the luxury car segment. Later, in 1990-1992, the Audi also offered a new 4.2L V8 engine, which developed as much as 206 kW of power. Although the Audi V8’s “triumph” came to an end in 1994, it laid the foundation for the later known Audi A8, which is familiar to everyone. The car is based on the Audi V8 sedan, but converted to a station wagon. It is special because former Audi CEO Ferdinand Piech had let built this unique Avant only for his wife. This means that there is only one original Avant version that came straight from the factory, and that car is currently stored in the Audi Neckarsulm.
