Audi Club Auction Watch: 03.21.2024

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.

Two weeks ago a 2019 TT Roadster 20th Anniversary Edition listed on cars & bids, bid to $35,090, but that didn’t meet the reserve.  So the owner tried again using Pcarmarket this past week.  That auction ended yesterday and the bidding went to $39,000 and the car sold.  So it paid to try again.

Now, on to this week’s colorful listings.  There’s an eye-popping Dragon Orange RS Q8, a Sepang Blue RS 7, and a stealthy Daytona Gray matte RS 7, all of whom have auctions ending today.  The elder statesman this week is a significantly enhanced 1995.5, Tornado Red S6.  My pick this week is the Ibis White 2011 S4 which, when you step on the loud pedal, you’d better be pointed in the direction you want to go.  Please read that listing to see what I mean, then please check out the rest this week’s 14 listings to see what your pick would be.  Thanks again for reading!

2023 Audi RS Q8 (6,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.21.2024 1:20 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  This very hard-to-miss SUV is loaded: Ceramic brakes; B&O Advanced sound; Black Optic, Carbon, Luxury, Towing, and Executive packages; and Night vision assistant.  The great color is Dragon Orange metallic and the black interior has Cognac seats and matte carbon fiber trim.  Under the bonnet is a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 Audi rates at 591HP/590 lb-ft that connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic and a Sport diff.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2016 Audi RS 7 (34,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.21.2024 2:54 PM EDT

2023 Audi RS 7 (700 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.21.2024 2:59 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  If a 2016 RS 7 is too dated for you, how about an essentially new one?  This sportback was enhanced to the tune of about $70K.  Please read listing for all the details on the look, the enhanced sound coming from the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 is courtesy of an Eventuri carbon-fiber air intake, an ECU modified with a RENNtech Power Module, and an Akrapovič exhaust.  Of course the Carfax is clean.

2002 Audi S6 Avant (181,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.22.2024 2:19 PM EDT

No Reserve.  A classic long roof with a surprise: gone is the automatic gearbox, a 6-speed manual now handles the power emanating from the 4.2L V8 that has an (unnamed) ECU tune.  There are more mods too like those 18” Rota Rundfahren wheels, please read the listing for the details.  The exterior is Brilliant Black, the interior black, and both have a few flaws noted.  Carfax reports very minor damage to the rear in September 2016 and damage to the front following an accident with another vehicle in July 2004 after which it was sold as a CPO vehicle.

2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet (66,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.22.2024 2:28 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Here’s an example of a non-quattro Audi.  The 3.0L V6 (220HP/221 lb-ft) sends its power to the front wheels through a Multitronic continuously variable transaxle.  The color of this B6 generation coupe is listed as blue, under the light shade blue soft top is a gray interior with leather seats, wood trim, and an Audi Symphony CD/cassette stereo with Bose sound.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2012 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (14,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.22.2024 3:36 PM EDT

It’s yet another low-mileage 2012 R8, this time a Phantom Black pearl coupe with Oxygen Silver side blades over a black interior that has leather seats, Piano Black trim, an Alcantara headliner, and Navigation.  The 5.2L V10 in this Type 42 is Audi rated at 525HP/391 lb-ft and this one mates to a 6-speed R tronic.  The 55,000 mile service was done in November 2023.  The Carfax report is clean but shows this car has not found a good home since November 2021.  And the tires are from 2016 and 2017.

2014 Audi A6 TDI (72,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.22.2024 3:50 PM EDT

2011 Audi S4 (85,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.23.2024 3:11 PM EDT

2021 Audi RS 6 Avant (20,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.24.2024 2:37 PM EDT

This long roof’s exterior is listed as black (Mythos Black metallic I’m sure) with black roof rails and badging, carbon fiber mirror caps, splitter, and diffuser.  The black interior has heated and ventilated front seats and the rear bench in black Valcona leather with red honeycomb-patterned stitching, carbon fiber trim, and even more red-stitched leather.  The twin-turbo 4.0 V8, combined with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, are rated at 591HP/590 lb-ft and spins an 8-speed Tiptronic and an electro-mechanical limited-slip rear diff.  The Carfax report is clean.

2001 Audi TT Coupe (97,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.25.2024 2:47 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This TT is Lake Silver metallic on the outside, Denim Blue on the inside.  We’ve never seen that combo before on Auction Watch.  That blue and black interior has an optional Audio package.  Mods include a Bilstein Cup Kit, H&R springs, Megan Racing adjustable rear control arms, and 034Motorsports street density front control arms.  The turbocharged 1.8L I4 is Audi rated at 225HP/207 lb-ft and spins a 6-speed manual.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2007 Audi S4 (59,000 Miles)

2021 Audi RS 7 (15,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.25.2024 4:25 PM EDT

A lot of Nardo Gray paint covers this Sportback’s body.  The options include Executive and Drivers Assistance packages, Carbon Twill inlays, B&O 3D Advanced sound, 22” wheels that cover red brake calipers, sport exhaust, and an Audi Guard Protection kit.  Also in the roomy cabin are Cognac seats and trim bits.  Under the hood lies a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 that Audi rates at 591HP/590 lb ft and it pairs with an 8-speed Tiptronic.  From reading the clean Carfax, I suspect the Sales staff drove this car before John Doe bought it as a CPO vehicle.

2005 Audi A4 STaSIS Competition Package (79,000 Miles)

Pcarmarket – 03.26.2024 2:00 PM EDT

The seller states this Brilliant Red is one of five 2005 A4s fitted with a STaSIS Competition Package, note the badge on the right rear.  That package is very comprehensive, you really need to read the listing for all the details but the highlight is a claimed 380HP from the 2.0L I4, thanks to APR tuning who equipped this car to their Stage 3+ spec.)  And I thought the S4 above was a racecar in disguise.)  The black interior has leather seats, aluminum trim, an optional Bose stereo, and the Ultrasport Package adds a perforated leather 3-spoke steering wheel.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage but you can see the car’s usage in the pictures of the undercarriage.

2007 Audi RS 4 (73,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.26.2024 4:03 PM EDT

Auction Watch wouldn’t be complete without an RS 4 and this one looks like a nice example.  The exterior is Avus Silver pearl; the interior has white-piped black Nappa leather seats, carbon fiber trim, and a Premium package.  The 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft) is fitted with a JH Motorsports lightweight pulley and a 034Motorsport billet intake manifold arm.  The 6-speed manual is held in place by a 034Motorsport Street Density mount.  Please read the listing for additional mods and service.  Carfax reports damage to the front in January 2016, the front bumper cover was refinished as a result.

2013 Audi RS 5 Coupe (85,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.27.2024 2:12 PM EDT

The N/A 4.2L V8 (450HP/317 lb-ft) under the hood of this Daytona Gray pearl coupe had its timing chain and associated equipment replaced in January this year.  It’s mated to a 7-speed S tronic and a Sport diff is standard.  The black cabin features leather/Alcantara seats, carbon fiber trim, and an MMI Navigation Plus system.  The only mod is tinted windows.  Carfax reports minor damage to the rear in October 2018.

2022 Audi RS Q8 (42,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.27.2024 3:43 PM EDT

And speaking of eye-popping colors, I think an Audi Exclusive Java Green qualifies.  The SUV is optioned with Carbon Optic, Black Optic, Luxury, Executive, and Towing packages; the Audi Exclusive brings Iguana Green stitching into the black cabin’s heated/ventilated RS sport front seats, etc.  The drivetrain is a 4.0L twin-turbo V8, Audi rated at 591HP/590 lb-ft, an 8-speed Tiptronic and a Sport diff.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2023 Audi RS 5 Sportback (3,000 Miles)
