*Offered with signed picture of Robert Plant
*Running well
*Good history file


Originally owned by Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant, this highly-specified and little-seen Audi S8 boasts some unique-to-year options and remains in excellent order given its age and mileage. With the bodyshell and panels made from aluminium there is no rust, and the panels present very well and the paint is very good with just a couple of small imperfections. The front tyres are showing signs of wear. Inside it is much the same, featuring a very good-order interior trimmed in leather and suede, seats front and rear being heated, while the generous specification includes factory-installed navigation system and parking sensors. While stored for two years – and consequently due a service and MoT test, the engine is said to start and run well and the running gear is said to be in commensurate order. Service history (including cambelt changes) consists of invoices and stamps to 165,000 miles, while receipts large sums spent on suspension re-freshing. With three subsequent owners after Robert Plant (whose signature appears on the PDI sheet), this S8, with first-class rock and roll credentials and covering just over 400 miles since passing its last MoT test, is certainly worth closer inspection.
