S5’s (and A5’s) are the ideal daily driver for the executive who has style, but who also makes rational decisions. Every Board of Directors is going to have second thoughts about a CEO who drives up in a flashy 911. On the other hand, arriving in a refined (just look at that shoulder line), safe (it is a Quattro), and respectable (there are 4 seats) Audi will assure any Board of Directors that you’re just the type of person they want running their global conglomerate.
I am not a fan of white cars, but I’ll made an exception for this 2009 Audi S5 Quattro 4.2 V8 6 Speed Manual for $15000 in Downey, California because it has beautiful, and rare, dark red seats. Almost every other S5, or A5 has a somber, and boring, black interior. Some are red, but the one’s I’ve seen have been boy-racer bright red. The seller calls these Tuscan Brown. They look to be closer to maroon or box-blood red in color, helping highlight the sportier aspects of the car’s character.
This example claims a reasonable 87,XXX miles for an 11 year old car. It is said to have some Southern California modifications including dark window tint and muffler delete that will have to be reversed. On the other hand, it also claims to have coil-overs, a new clutch and the B&O stereo.
