Audi Club Auction Watch: 03.28.2024

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.

There are a few special or otherwise limited edition cars in this week’s auction listings.  The rarest is a 1 of 25 RS 6 Avant RS Tribute edition, a hat-tip to the RS 2 Avant, in the always-popular Nogaro Blue.  Then we have a 1 of 99 TT Roadster 3.2 Special Edition, a model commemorating the Isle of Man TT race.  Finally, there’s a 1 of 999 Rear Wheel Series R8 V10 Coupe; 320 of the 999 built were sent to the North American market.  There are some really nice cars to choose from this week so picking a favorite is hard.  But I’d bid on the 2019 Nardo Gray RS 5 Sportback and cover the entire car with XPEL Stealth film.  Please check out all of this week’s listings to see what you might bid on.  As always, thanks for reading!
