Fellow Audi fans: make a New Year’s resolution to stop spending countless hours searching the internet for your favorite car(s) and simply check out this post every week. Auction Watch is monitoring numerous auction sites for Audi models worthy of bidding on, then posting a short description with key data points and a few pictures to, hopefully, help you find the car you’re looking for in time to bid.
It’s that time of the year again for the big televised auctions. Mecum Auctions was on Motortrend TV live last Friday, Saturday, and yesterday from Kissimmee, FL. A total of 12 Audi are on Mecum’s docket, eight of which are cabriolets/roadsters. Only three remain to cross the block: Lot F82, a 2008 R8 coupe, on Friday the 13th; Lot U25, a 2005 A4 Cab and Lot U84, a 2012 A5 Cab, on Sunday the 15th. A 2013 A5 Cab and a 2008 S6 are in Bid Goes On status for two weeks if you’re interested.
The Barrett-Jackson auction from Scottsdale, AZ, runs 21-29 January so I’ll highlight any Audi on their docket in next week’s Auction Watch. Now on to this week’s on-line auction listings.
