Audi Club Auction Watch: 03.23.2023

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.

Looks like a Special Edition Week this week in Auction Watch.  To start, there’s a 1 of 320 (for North America) R8 rear-wheel drive models, the 2018 Rear Wheel Series.  Then even more special, there’s a 2006 TT Roadster, 1 of 99 built to celebrate the 99th anniversary of the first Tourist Trophy race on the Isle of Man.  Finally, the Imola Yellow B7 generation RS 4 and S4 are pretty special too!  Check out these and the rest of this week’s listing below.

2013 Audi A6 (30,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.24.2023 3:46 PM EDT

No Reserve.  One owner, low mileage and no mods.  An uncommon color combo: Dakota Gray metallic outside, Velvet Beige inside.  The 3.0L supercharged V6 is factory rated at 310HP/325 lb-ft and it connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2018 Audi TT RS (37,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.25.2023 3:25 PM EDT

The 1-2-4-5-3 firing order of a turbocharged 2.5L I5, factory rated at 400HP/354 lb-ft, and mated to a 7-speed S tronic is what you’ll hear if you win the bid on this pocket rocket.  It looks like Brilliant Black over a black cabin with diamond-stitched Nappa leather seats and the red RS Design Select package.  The sale includes a second set of four wheels/tires but no info on what they are.  The Carfax report is clean.

2010 Audi A5 Cabriolet (27,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.25.2023 5:28 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This low-mileage car is finished in Brilliant Black with a black soft top over a black interior featuring Cardamom Beige leather seats and wood trim.  It’s powered by a turbocharged 2.0L I4 mated to a 6-speed Tiptronic.  Service since October 2022 includes replacing the turbocharger, intake manifold, camshaft position sensor, and spark plugs.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage but it could use a paint correction to eliminate the swirls.

2007 Audi RS 4 (79,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.26.2023 3:20 PM EDT

The 4.2L naturally aspirated V8 in this four-door is factory rated at 420HP/317 lb-ft and connects to a 6-speed manual.  It’s painted  Mugello Blue pearl over the less common silver interior with black-piped silver Nappa Leather seats.  The seller notes the rear bumper cover and a rear quarter panel are repainted.  Other than that, this car appears to be unmodified.  The Carfax report shows no accidents or damage.

2018 Audi R8 Coupe RWS (5,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.26.2023 3:40 PM EDT

This 1 of 999, 320 for the North American market, rear wheel drive edition is in Florett Silver metallic with the red stripe/rhombus over a black cabin with Express Red leather seats, door inserts, and center console.  The 5.2L V10 is rated by Audi at 532HP/398 lb-ft and it spins a 7-speed S tronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2006 Audi TT Roadster 3.2 quattro Special Edition (34,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.26.2023 5:22 PM EDT

This is one of 99 roadsters made to celebrate the 99th anniversary of the first Tourist Trophy race on the Isle of Man.  The 3.2L VR6, factory factory rated at 247HP/236 lb-ft of torque, delivers its power to all 4 wheels via a 6-speed DSG dual-clutch transaxle.  The car is finished in Quartz Gray metallic with a black soft top.  The baseball optic sport seats are upholstered in Amber Red leather as are the steering wheel, shift knob, parking brake handle, center stack trim, and door panel inserts.  The Carfax report is clean.

2007 Audi RS 4 (96,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.27.2023 2:38 PM EDT

The Imola Yellow is a perfect contrast to the black cabin featuring Recaro front seats in black Nappa leather and carbon fiber trim.  The 4.2L V8 (factory #s 420HP/317 lb-ft) sends its power to a 6-speed manual.  Records indicate that carbon cleaning was performed on the intake in March 2023, along with the replacement of the fuel injectors.  A Milltek Sport cat-back exhaust is fitted and the Dynamic Ride Control suspension is still in place.  Carfax reports no accidents or other damage but seller notes sagging in the headliner.

2007 Audi S4 (100,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.27.2023 2:42 PM EDT

Another Imola Yellow B7 but only slightly less sporty than the one above.  The factory measured this one’s 4.2L V8 output at 340HP/302 lb-ft but it may see a little more thanks to a Borla ProXS exhaust.  It’s optioned with Exterior Sport and Convenience packages, has a black interior with leather/Alcantara seats, Carbon Atlas trim and a 6-speed manual.  Tinted windows and no more S badge on the rear complete the look.  A clean Carfax too.

2013 Audi S4 (61,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.29.2023 2:58 PM EDT

No Reserve.  There’s a nice shine on that Brilliant Black finish that also has a complementing Black Optic Package.  Lunar Silver Alcantara seat inserts and door panels and aluminum trim provide contrast in the otherwise black cabin.  Forget about the 3.0L V6’s factory rating, it now runs a STaSIS Engineering Stage 1 CPU tune and Stage 2 exhaust.  A 7-speed S tronic and sport diff complete the drivetrain.  Carfax reports no accidents or other damage.

2007 Audi S4 (59,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 03.29.2023 4:16 PM EDT

No Reserve.  In 2022 the NA 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) in this B7 had this service: replacing the valve cover gaskets, drive belt, drive belt tensioner, snub nose mount, air filter, and spark plugs as well as an O-ring for the air conditioning condenser.  The 6-speed Tiptronic was also serviced in 2022.  The Deep Sea Blue pearl exterior is contrasted by silver-gray leather seats and headliner, and wood trim in the black interior.  The Carfax report is clean.
