Happy but cold New Year fellow Audi enthusiasts! Do you find yourself searching through the internet’s multiple car auction sites looking for a specific model? While it can be fun, it does consume valuable time you could spend planning all your Audi Club adventures for the coming year. So let us do some of the work for you. Auction Watch monitors online auction sites for Audi models worthy of your bids. Each Thursday we post those listings calling out a car’s highlights, and include a few pictures and a link to the listing. Our goal is to help you find the Audi you’re looking for in time to bid on it.
While there is a nice R8 Plus this week, I’m calling this performance Avant week. We have a practically new RS 6 Avant and an RS 2 Avant that may still rev with a French accent. If you’re looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, how about a Q5 setup for off-road action or some garage décor—there’s a lighted Audi sign that may interest you. Please check out these and the rest of this week’s listing below. As always, thanks for reading!
2023 Audi RS 6 Avant (1,000 Miles)
Pcarmarket – 01.12.2024 2:30 PM EST
This long roof is Mythos Black metallic with an optional Appearance Package in Carbon and Gloss Black. The black interior has Valcona leather seats, Express Red stitching, and decorative carbon twill structure inlays. A twin-turbo 4.0L V8 delivers up to 591HP/590 lb-ft through an 8-speed Tiptronic to all four wheels. The clean but slightly confusing Carfax shows this is a Canadian-spec car.

This import was acquired by the selling dealer out of France in August 2020.

Illuminated Audi Sign

As seen in yesterday’s Find of the Day, this single-sided sign measures approximately 74″ wide by 26″ tall, and its translucent white and blue panel is housed within a metal enclosure. It weighs about 45 pounds. Internal illumination is provided by fluorescent bulbs and it’s wired for 120-volt circuitry and equipped with a two-prong power cord. There are pre-drilled mounting holes on the back of the enclosure.
2013 Audi Q5 3.0T (132,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 01.16.2024 1:55 PM EST
It started as a Prestige trim level, supercharged 3.0L V6-equipped daily-driver but now looks ready for fast off-road adventures. Riding on 18” Black Rhino wheels, mod highlights include an IE ECU Stage 2+ dual pulley tune, an IE TCU tune, a CTS Turbo intake, a Merc Racing high-capacity heat exchanger, a custom exhaust, and H&R lift springs. Please read the listing for much more. The color is Monsoon Gray with Black Optics over a black interior. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2007 Audi S4 Cabriolet (39,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 01.16.2024 1:35 PM EST
This car previously sold on BaT in February 2023 for $20,750, please see the listing for the service done just before and since the sale. The exterior color is listed as gray and under its black soft top are light gray leather seats with black piping, wood trim, Bose audio, and an Alpine touchscreen head unit with a rearview camera and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability installed in April 2023. The 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) mates to a 6-speed Tiptronic. The clean Carfax report says it’s a two-owner California car.
2007 Audi RS 4 (115,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 01.17.2024 1:26 PM EST
The 4.2L V8 in this Sprint Blue fast sedan is modified with 034Motorsport intake flap arms, JHM oil cooler lines and intake manifold spacers, a silicone intake hose, K&N air filter, APR engine management software, Audi R8-sourced ignition coils, and Milltek exhaust. It had carbon cleaning done in May 2017. The 6-speed manual is worked via a JHM short shifter that you’ll use while seated in a bright interior on a black-piped Silver leather Recaro seat surrounded by Bose sound that apparently whines. The seller states the Carfax-reported damage in June 2016 was caused by a softball that was fixed using paintless dent repair.
