Yep, and apparently some oil sheik wanted one at any price, but they said
it was a prototype and they wouldn't sell it, or make any more. A shame,
because it is beautiful indeed.
Yesterday, at the Dutch model car swapmeet, there was one stand offering
brochures and press kits, among which was the press kit for the A8 Coupe.
The guy wanted $7.50 for it- but I was completely broke. Shame!



PS The same guy had the complete press kit for all Audi models of 1986. One
fat volume with pics and specs of all Audis. Beautiful, but expensive.

             be prepared for the occasional division by zero.
