1990 Audi V8 Overview

For a family car that transports the kids in style, or if you're just looking to impress friends, coworkers, and/or clients, the Audi V8 tries to please all types of drivers. No matter what your purpose, the 1990 V8 is certainly luxurious. Don't start looking for options to add on, because most of what you want already comes standard, such as heated front and rear leather seats, sunroof, power mirrors, heated locks, cruise control, trip computer, intermitten wipers, sports seat, ski bag in the trunk (to keep the trunk dry), power adjustable front seats with memory settings, a rear spoiler and fog lights.

As for performance, the 1990 V8 boasts quattro all-wheel drive, which is split 50/50 between front and rear, but apportions traction to the wheels that need it most depending on the road conditions. It is powered by a twin-cam 3.6-liter, 240-hp V8 and a 4-speed automatic transmission that lets you choose between three modes for economy, sporty, or manual performance. Though acceleration is sluggish and fuel economy not great (rated at 14/18 mpg) due to the V8's size and weight, it is a pleasingly fast and fun ride.

Owners love the elegant looks of the 1990 V8, its smooth handling and cornering, and its engine power once it opens up. Inside is beautiful, well-laid out, and comfortable. Riders love the sports seats and heated front and rear seats. The quattro is always praised, as is the sporty feel behind the wheel. Owners also comment that the materials and exterior of the V8 hold up well over the years. Dislikes include bad customer service and wallet-busting repairs. The heaviness of the V8 screams for more engine power.
