What we’ve found out from the Bring a Trailer ad is that the exterior was repainted earlier this year and new headlights, taillights and fog lamp assemblies were added. There’s also new trim, emblems, a new windshield and tinted windows.
Moreover, the 18-inch alloys are shod with new Michelin Pilot Sport rubber, while the 2Bennett front brakes feature 8-piston Brembo calipers sourced from an (unspecified) Audi RS model. Also worth mentioning are the adjustable Bilstein shocks, lowering springs and S8 downpipes.
The interior has been partially-reupholstered, while the headliner is all-suede. Features include a new three-spoke steering wheel from an S8, a Pioneer sat-nav display and a new A/C compressor.
As far as comfort goes, there is a lot of room for rear seat passengers, as well as window shades and some more of that wood grain trim that can be found throughout the vehicle, mostly on the center console.
Finally there’s the 4.2-liter V8 engine, which has already clocked 93,881 miles (151,086 km). It comes with new seals gaskets, a rebuilt cooling system, new ignition system, a new Tiptronic transmission, new timing belt, water pump and power steering pump.
Apparently, though, all of this wasn’t enough, as despite the highest bid being a respectable $21k, it failed to meet the seller’s reserve.
