    A8 surplus to requirements

    i have a 97 4.2 quattro with 45000 genuine miles on the clock with a full service history and i think 4 previous owners. It has just passed an mot-needed a suspension arm only and brake pads. Ihave all the old mots to prove mileage. Car is deep green with leather and all the trimmings. I am looking to sell it ,will break it if enough interest or will px for a smart car. It is running good with no issues. I have a new job and my commute is crippling me for petrol. Any interest ? Make me an offer. I can drive it on the road until the end of the month when the tax and insurance run out. I cannot test drive it for anyone after this time unless you have your own insurance and are willing to chance the tax issue. This car is not due for the big road tax hike due next year.Ihave owned it for three problem free years and can confirm that given a long enough stretch of private road will
    still top out at 155 mph. john.

    Forgot to say car is an r reg and with summer coming has the coldest air con i have ever owned. It has black leather seats.

    What sort of ballpark are we looking at?

    My old man might fancy it.

    Your excluded from the big rises as its a pre-March 2001 car though. In a couple of years when I get a garage i plan on building an AC Cobra replica and had thought about using an old Jag or Audi V8. Might be worth your while having a nose on a kit car site as im sure you'd get a top price just for the engine out of it! FYI a recon Rover V8 3.5 engine would cost 3-4k.
