V8's with different convenience options, transmission or engine
configurations were the norm in Euroland, here in the US you had maybe 1
or 2 options, period.  The two rarer options on non-US V8Q's were the
adjustable electric rear seat and hydraulic suspension.  A few years ago
there was a seller in Germany who started to specialize in used V8Q's,
evidently they ALL went to Russia and former Soviet protectorates in one
fell swoop.  From seeing some of the configurations that were available,
there is something to be said for standardizing a companies flagship.
