Classic. I5 Turbo. Especially in wagon form. How I wish I could've had a C4 S6 as my first car, but my C4 A6 wasn't bad either, until I killed it :(

Classic. I can see these going the way of the E28 M5 - overlooked and affordable right up until the day they aren't and prices skyrocket.

Crock, because it's not a first gen S8 and didn't appear in Ronin. The A6 is Audi's 5er. It suffers from an identity crisis.

A4/3er = Spordy!
A8/7er = Luxo but quick with it.
A6/5er = Erm, erm, erm.

Plus it's not a wagon and Audis with more than two doors aren't cool unless they are wagons.

Or were in Ronin.

Had to give it to CrzRsn because of one reason. I5 Turbo. Would have love to give it to MWF but its an S6. Very much a different car from typical A6! :p

Thanks. Forgot to mention, I5 turbo with optional V8. The best engine combo.

Anyways, next up. The R170 SKL

Crock. It really is the definition of "hairdresser's car". Aside from the hairdresser styling and auto-only transmissions, even the AMG version just wasn't all that fast.

Crock. Do I really need to explain this one?

You guys are no fun. What about the fact that it was the first mass market power retractable hardtop? Sure there were others before it, but the SLK really brought the feature to the mainstream.

You could get a manual.

I'll give it to Craig for his concise answer.

The Ford Fairmont. It didn't have any exciting engines, it didn't have outrageous styling, hell, it wasn't exciting.

Classic. Because there's no substitute to it. A mechanically simple, light, RWD, V8 powered Station Wagon. Also parts compatibility with essentially the *ahem*Sports Car of it's marque makes it even better.

No one said this was supposed to be unbiased, did they?

What about this?



Some people said it's the last over-engineered Mercedes. But the W140 is in kind of a limbo. All previous S-Klasse are now definitely classics, yet, the W140 isn't. And while the equivalent E38 and D2 A8 are surefire becoming classics because of movie appearances. The W140 doesn't have that kind of privilege. What do you think?

3 of them
The last over-engineered, and also the first one bean-countered to death. It is a classic, but just because of size and that most of them are already dead.
