Audi Club Auction Watch: 03.09.2023

Words: Steve Johnson

Fellow Audi enthusiasts, do you lose track of time searching the internet’s multiple car auction sites for a specific model?  If so, please let us do some of the work for you.  Auction Watch is monitoring numerous auction sites for Audi models worthy of bidding on.  Then, weekly in Auction Watch, we’ll post a short description with key data, a few pictures, and a link to the listing.  We hope to help you find the Audi you’re looking for in time to bid on it.

This week’s highlight is a 1986 Coupe GT in a great name for a color—Tornado Red, especially this week in Virginia as it is Severe Weather Awareness Week.  Approximately 800 Coupe GTs were imported for the US market in 1986.  That pretty much guarantees that if you were to show up in this car at your local coffee-drinking car gathering you’ll be the only ’86 Coupe GT there.  Please check out the GT and the rest of this week’s listings below.

2013 Audi RS 5 Coupe (99,500 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.09.2023 3:54 PM EST

Auction ends late PM!  No Reserve.  Yet another shade of black, this one’s Panther Black Crystal Effect with the Titanium Package over a black cabin featuring Lunar Silver seats/door panels and carbon fiber trim.  The N/A 4.2L V8 is factory rated at 450HP/317 lb-ft and connects to a 7-speed S tronic.  The rear headliner is sagging and the tires have 2017 date codes.  From looking at the clean Carfax report, I’d guess this car did a lot of highway miles between FL and a summer home up north.

2018 Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder (6,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.10.2023 3:17 PM EST

Low mileage!  The 5.2L V10 in the Plus model is factory rated at 610HP/413 lb-ft and mates to a 7-speed S tronic.  It’s my favorite R8 color, Suzuka Gray metallic, with a black soft top and carbon-fiber front spoiler, rocker inlay, rear diffuser, engine bay covers and side blades.  The black cabin has Nappa leather seats with Express Red stitching on the seats, center console, and door panels along with Carbon-fiber trim.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2016 Audi S8 (25,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.10.2023 3:46 PM EST

The 4.0L turbocharged V8 (520HP/481 lb-ft) and 8-speed automatic provide effortless cruising power as you sit in the Audi Design Selection cabin (Balao Brown interior, full leather package, leather shifter, comfort front seats, Fine-Grain Ash Natural Balsamic Brown upper inlays, Snow White Alcantara headliner, stitching, and piping).  The Oolong Gray metallic exterior has paint protection film on its forward-facing surfaces.  Carfax reports minor damage to the front in July 2016 and minor damage to the left front in June 2021.  And it’s time for new tires.

1986 Audi Coupe GT (59,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.12.2023 1:40 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This coupe’s finished in Tornado Red with an aftermarket front spoiler over a black cabin featuring Platinum leather seats and door panels and a Continental stereo with USB and Bluetooth connectivity.  The drive train is a 2.2L I5, factory rated at 110HP/122 lb-ft, paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle operated by a 034Motorsport short-shifter kit.  It rides on 16″ Sparco wheels (OEM wheels included in the sale) and has a clean Carfax report.

2006 Audi S4 Avant (117,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.12.2023 2:08 PM EDT

No Reserve.  The NA 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) in this long roof mates with a 6-speed manual that had its clutch replaced in 2018.  It’s painted Sprint Blue pearl over Ebony Silk Nappa Recaro leather seats with carbon fiber trim and a Pioneer touchscreen head unit with smartphone connectivity.  The 18″ BBS wheels wear Audi-branded center caps.  Carfax reports no accidents or other damage.

2004 Audi S4 (18,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.12.2023 3:50 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Previously listed on BaT just last month when it bid to $21,250, it’s now back to sell this time.  That’s Brilliant Red over a black cabin with leather Recaro seats, wood trim, an Audi Symphony CD/Cassette stereo, and a Bose audio.  The N/A 4.2L V8 is factory rated at 340HP/302 lb-ft and it sends that power to the ground via a 6-speed manual.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2002 Audi TT ALMS Commemorative Edition (96,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.12.2023 5:42 PM EDT

No Reserve.  On the 1,000 special editions built to celebrate Audi’s championships in the American LeMans Series you had two color choices, silver or this Misano Red.  I like the red as it nicely contrasts the black cabin and the silver Nappa leather seats, steering wheel and trim.  The turbocharged 1.8L I4 (225HP/207 lb-ft) had its timing belt replaced in October 2018 and fuel pump in January 2023.  A 6-speed manual and Haldex system completes the drivetrain.  Clean Carfax report.

2021 Audi SQ5 (18,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.13.2023 2:26 PM EDT

Finished in Quantum Gray with a Black Optic Package, it may seem rather subdued until you open a door to find Magma Red Fine Nappa leather seats in a black interior with carbon fiber trim.  It’s powered by a 3.0L turbocharged V6 factory rated at 354HP/369 lb-ft and that power is sent to the quattro via an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2001 Audi S8 (189,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.13.2023 4:26 PM EDT

No Reserve.  One owner per the clean Carfax report, this car looks pretty good considering it’s been around the world 7.6 times.  Please read the listing for the service done on the 4.2L V8 (360HP/317 lb-ft and mated to a 5-speed Tiptronic) as well as the chassis over the past 5 years.  Outside it’s Light Silver metallic, inside its primarily Platinum interior are Valcona leather seats, Audi Symphony radio and Bose sound with 6-disc CD player.

2022 Audi R8 RWD Coupe (2,300 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.13.2023 4:34 PM EDT

Attention Western Canada Chapter members, this one’s in your area.  The 5.2L V10, factory rated at 562HP/406 lb-ft, sends its power through a 7-speed S tronic to only the rear wheels in this model.  The Suzuka Gray metallic paint up front wears PPF.  The interior highlight is the Diamond Quilted Leather Package (Alcantara headliner with diamond stitching, full leather package, and diamond stitched seats) in black with Rock Gray stitching.  The Carfax report is clean.

2014 Audi S4 (80,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.14.2023 2:18 PM EDT

A very nicely optioned ride: Sport diff, adaptive suspension, MMI Navigation, Nappa leather seats, and B&O sound.  Not to mention that the supercharged 3.0L V6 (333HP/325 lb-ft) spins a 6-speed manual.  It’s Ibis White outside and black inside with carbon atlas inlays.  Mods are a Canyon Run front strut tower brace and XPEL on the front end and rear bumper sill.  Please read the listing for recent service and details on the Carfax-reported accident in June 2016.

2007 Audi Q7 S-Line (67,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.14.2023 4:57 PM EDT

A classic silver over black 1st gen Q7 anyone?  The 4.2L V8 is factory rated at 350HP/325 lb-ft and turns a 6-speed Tiptronic.  New tires and battery for the sale and also, judging from the pictures, a super detailing job.  Carfax reports damage in October 2017 but no additional information.

2001 Audi TT Coupe 225 (144,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.15.2023 3:05 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Aviator(?) gray over a black/gray interior that includes an aftermarket flat bottom steering wheel.  The aftermarket theme continues in the engine bay where the 1.8L I4 runs an unnamed engine management software, breathes in through a Carbon Dynamic Airbox and out through an unnamed cat-back exhaust.  Aftermarket front springs and dampers, Porsche-sourced front brake calipers, drilled and slotted front rotors, and replacement brake lines complete the mods.  Clean Carfax report.
