Audi Club Auction Watch: 03.14.2024

Words: Steve Johnson

Greetings and salutations Audi enthusiasts.  Thank you for checking out another edition of Auction Watch where we’ve done the internet searching for you.  We’ve checked multiple car auction sites looking 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 that you’re looking for in time for you to bid on it.  Without further ado, here is this week’s listing overview.

Raise your hand if you don’t like turning the clocks forward an hour.  Oops—you’ve just bid on one of this week’s 18 listing!  There are only two new-ish cars in this week’s listing, the average age for the rest of this week’s 16 listings is 14 years old and there’s one of every Audi body style included.  Auctions for the first six listings end today so if you’re in the market you’d better get scrolling on down to see if one of these is for you.  My pick this week is the 2021 TTS Coupe, please check out all this week’s listings below to see what your favorite is.  Thanks again for reading!

2011 Audi R8 V8 Spyder (11,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.14.2024 1:36 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  Yet another low mileage Spyder, and this is a one-owner too.  But it gets better, the 4.2L V8 that Audi rates at 420HP/317 lb-ft spins a 6-speed manual.  In triple black (Phantom Black pearl) it has an enhanced leather package, illuminated door sills, perforated Sport steering wheel, and an Audi concert infotainment system in the cabin.  The Carfax report is clean.

2012 Audi A8 L (69,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.14.2024 2:08 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early-mid this PM!  The big 6.3L W12 under what appears to be a Brilliant Black hood is factory rated at 500HP/463 lb-ft and it drives an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The black interior has brown leather heated/ventilated front seats and an Executive Rear Seating package which adds a power-adjustable heated/ventilated/massaging brown leather seats, refrigerator, retractable footrests, dual 10″ screens, and console with table.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2014 Audi RS 7 (83,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.14.2024 4:06 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends late this PM!  Audi’s most powerful engine in 2014, the twin-turbo 4.0L V8 delivers 10HP more than the R8 V10 Plus.  That power in this Prestige trim-level Misano Red pearl sportback flows to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The black interior has Valcona leather seats with contrasting honeycomb stitching, carbon fiber trim, B&O sound, and an Audi MMI infotainment with a pop-up display and navigation.  The Carfax report is clean but the sunroof doesn’t open.

2015 Audi Allroad (47,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.14.2024 4:18 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends late this PM!  This long roof is finished in Glacier White metallic, with body-color wheel arch extensions and lower body panels, over a black/Titanium Gray interior with leather seats, a Technology package, brushed aluminum trim, and B&O sound.  The turbocharged 2.0L I4 is factory rated at 220HP/258 lb-ft and connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2011 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (23,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.14.2024 4:32 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends late this PM!  Underneath a light blue vinyl wrap is Phantom Black pearl paint, there’s black side blades, matte black wheels, and a Maxton Design front splitter to complete the look.  The black cabin has red-stitched leather seats and white instrument dials.  The 5.2L V10 is surrounded by carbon fiber, is Audi rated at 525HP/391 lb-ft, wears carbon fiber K&N air filters, and spins a 6-speed R tronic.  The Carfax report is clean.

2008 Audi TT Coupe 3.2 (145,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.14.2024 4:50 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends late this PM!  No Reserve.  The Ice Silver metallic exterior reflects the age/mileage with a few flaws (see pictures).  The black interior has Nappa leather seats with contrasting stitching, an in-dash CD player, and an Audi Symphony sound system.  The 3.2L VR6 (250HP/236 lb-ft) pairs with 6-speed S tronic.  The Carfax report is clean but the hood release handle is broken, an exhaust leak is noted and corrosion is seen on underside surfaces.

2004 Audi A4 (108,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.15.2024 1:49 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This Brilliant Red sedan may be in better mechanical than outward cosmetic shape.  The 1.8L, 20-valve, turbocharged I4 had timing belt service, carbon cleaning, and a big service done in March 2022.  Inside, the heated leather front seats in the black interior look to be in good shape; it also has an Audi Symphony CD/cassette stereo with integrated six-disc changer.  But the exterior has a few flaws and one big bite into the left rocker panel, although Carfax reports no damage or accidents.

2021 Audi TTS Coupe (17,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.15.2024 1:51 PM EDT

This looks like a good buy: the Glacier White metallic paint wears paint protection on the front end and the only other aftermarket item is window tint.  Options include the comprehensive Competition package which dresses up the black interior with the red trim and adds the wing on the hatchback.  It still has about 1.5 years of Audi Care as well.  The 2.0L I4, Audi rated at 288HP/280 lb-ft, mates to a 7-speed S tronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2008 Audi RS 4 Sedan (90,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.15.2024 2:12 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This sedan needs a bit of TLC and a few parts to return its prime.  Outside, the Avus Silver pearl paint has a few flaws noted and it may need a windshield, but the inside with its black-piped Silver Nappa Leather Recaro seats, aluminum trim, and light headliner look really nice.  The 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft) and 6-speed manual drivetrain is unmodified.  The right front and rear shocks are noted as leaking so the Dynamic Ride Control will need attention and the tires have 2018 date codes, but the Carfax report is clean.

2012 Audi A4 Avant (15,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.16.2024 1:30 PM EDT

This low-mileage long roof is listed as black (Brilliant?) over a light beige/gray interior with Cardamom Beige leather seats, Aluminum Hologram trim, a panoramic sunroof, and a 10-speaker sound system.  The turbocharged 2.0L I4 is factory rated at 211HP/258 lb-ft and connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Carfax reports minor to moderate damage to the rear and right rear in September 2015.

2016 Audi S4 (71,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.16.2024 2:14 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This sedan is finished in Daytona Gray pearl with a High Gloss Black package over a black interior with leather/Alcantara seats, brushed aluminum trim, B&O sound, and an infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity.  The mods under the hood are an APR cold air intake and ECU Stage 1 tune for the supercharged 3.0L V6.  A 6-speed manual completes the drivetrain.  An alignment and Bilstein B6 rear shocks installation were done in July 2023.  The Carfax report is clean.

2012 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (29,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.16.2024 4:12 PM EDT

For only having 29K miles on it, this coupe’s been in the shop a lot.  Please thoroughly read the clean Carfax report, the listing’s comments section, and look through the pictures of the service receipts.  It’s finished in Phantom Black metallic with gray side blades outside, inside the black cabin are leather seats with Crimson Red stitching and B&O sound.  Also, a new left-front speaker done in March 2020 and the door panels, center console trim, and door sill trim pieces were replaced in December 2021.  The 5.2L V10 long block was replaced in November 2020 and the 6-speed manual’s clutch components, flywheel, and release bearing were replaced in September 2020.

2021 Audi RS 6 Avant (31,000 Kilometers)

Bring a Trailer – 03.17.2024 1:32 PM EDT

This Canadian-spec long roof wears a matte gray vinyl wrap over Daytona Gray pearl paint.  Other mods include Stinger radar-detection and laser-jamming equipment and a Fischer Helix amplifier and subwoofer for its B&O 3D Advanced sound system.  Those are Cognac Valcona leather seats in an otherwise black interior.  The twin-turbo 4.0L V8 (590HP/591 lb-ft) exhales through RedStar mid-pipes sans resonators and spins an 8-speed Tiptronic.  A set of 22″ Vossen HF-5 wheels with summer tires come with the sale in addition to removed exhaust components.  It’s being sold on its British Columbia registration which serves as the ownership document thus doesn’t include a title.

2018 Audi S3 (87,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.18.2024 2:47 PM EDT

This small sedan is Prestige trim-level, has S Sport and Black Optic Dynamic packages, and is further enhanced with these mods: 18” APEX SM-10 wheels, XPEL Stealth ppf on the front half, APR Stage 1 ECU and TCU tunes, APR carbon fiber open intake, CTS turbo inlet elbow and intake tube, and APR valved exhaust.  So forget about the factory numbers for the 2.0L I4 that spins a 7-speed S tronic.  The exterior is Nano Gray metallic, the interior is black, and the Carfax report is clean but I wonder why the windshield was replaced and the adaptive cruise control sensor aligned, twice each.

2008 Audi S4 Cabriolet (63,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.18.2024 4:11 PM EDT

No Reserve.  If you’ve got a spare S4 interior you might want to bid on this drop top, unless, that is, you like yellow.  The yellow leather on the seats and door panels is a modification and it looks dirty.  The engine bay housing the 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) looks cleaner than the seats do.  A 6-speed Tiptronic completes the drivetrain.  The Phantom Black pearl and black soft top are complemented by the 18” TSW Donington wheels.  The Carfax report is clean but there’s condensation in the left headlight, the hood struts need replacing as do the tires.  See the Lemon Squad inspection report for more details.

2007 Audi RS 4 (83,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.19.2024 3:59 PM EDT

This fast sedan is finished in Avus Silver pearl and has a Premium Package.  The black interior has Nappa leather (with contrasting piping) Recaro front seats that were reupholstered in 2023 along with replacing the headliner.  There’s also an aftermarket head unit and 9-speaker Bose sound.  The 4.2L V8, Audi rated at 420HP/317 lb-ft, had its intake flaps removed, carbon cleaning service, and more done in December 2022.  Please read the listing for details.  The 6-speed manual was rebuilt with a replacement clutch, flywheel, and a JHM short shifter kit in March 2023.  The Carfax report is clean but the black-finished headlight housings show condensation.

2003 Audi TT Roadster 225 (92,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.20.2024 1:53 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This Brilliant Black fun machine has a modified turbocharged 1.8L I4 under its bonnet.  It runs to a Unitronic Stage 1 tune, wears a ModShack air-intake, has a Forge Motorsport diverter valve, stainless-steel fittings, and a Dieselgeek stainless-steel dipstick.  Work in December 2020 included replacing timing belt and tensioner as well as the water pump and valve cover gasket.  The 6-speed manual had clutch components, flywheel, and slave cylinder replaced in October 2021.  The black interior has the cool Amber Red leather seats with Baseball stitching and an instrument cluster repaired in May 2015.  Carfax reports damage to the rear in August 2011, minor damage in October 2022 (read listing for details) and the seller notes an issue with the fuel sending unit.

2001 Audi S4 (30,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.20.2024 3:37 PM EDT

This B5 previously listed on BaT back in September 2022 when it bid to $26,250.  Since then the market has cooled-off.  The exterior is Santorin Blue pearl, the interior is black with Onyx Silk Nappa leather seats, Birdseye maple wood trim, Audi Navigation Plus, a Bose sound system with a 6-disc CD changer, and a loose headliner above the back seats.  The twin-turbo 2.7L V6 is factory rated at 250HP/258 lb-ft and spins a 6-speed manual.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
