When generations clash! We’ve come a long way. Aight folks. It’s time for a special one, as I hinted last week. When I was shooting the brand new 2021 S8 (D5) in white, my buddy Spanner Center who helped me put my RS4 B7 to an extremely mint condition, told me that he actually owns the first S8 (D2) since day one, and it’s in great condition and with only 75k km on the clock. It was no brainer for me that I had to do a shoot and a video with these two together. Just like I did it with my B5 RS4 and the new B9 RS4 a year ago as well. To show the first and the latest version of an Audi model.
So, let’s celebrate this unique happening. Same car, same color. 20 years apart. And don’t miss the high quality photos from this session as well. Check them out at the Facebook.com/Auditography page, where you can also download them in high quality for your wallpapers.
