Audi Club Auction Watch: 03.30.2023

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.

To follow last week’s Special Editions, this week’s highlights are an RS 4 with an Audi Exclusive interior and an R8 equipped with a V8 and a 6-speed manual with only 1,500 miles.  There are also five S models, most enhanced with choice aftermarket mods.  Check out these and the rest of this week’s listing below.

2015 Audi S8 (92,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.30.2023 1:46 PM EDT

Auction ends early this PM!  This looks like a very nice example of Audi’s flagship performance sedan.  It’s well-equipped and has a clean Carfax with a good service history.  Glacier White metallic over a black interior with the Driver Assistance and Cold Weather packages, Night Vision Assistant, and B&O Advanced Sound.  Under the hood is a 4.0L turbocharged V8, factory rated at 520HP/481 lb-ft, that’s mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic.

2018 Audi S7 (25,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 03.31.2023 3:46 PM EDT

Want a bit more performance but still need 4-doors?  This Glacier White metallic Sportback’s 4.0L turbocharged V8 runs an APR Stage 1 ECU tune and exhales thru an aftermarket x-pipe.  The enhanced power flows into a 7-speed S tronic running an APR TCU tune.  In the Arras Red Audi Design Selection interior are the Driver Assistance and Cold Weather packages.  Please read the listing for all the mods.  The Carfax report is clean.

2018 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (7,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.02.2023 4:25 PM EDT

Low mileage!  The color is Camouflage (I wish it was pictured in direct sunlight) with black grille, exterior trim, and sideblades; also tinted windows.  Audi rated the 5.2L V10 in this model at 532HP/398 lb-ft and it mates to a 7-speed S tronic.  The cabin is black with Nappa leather Sport seats and Alcantara headliner.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2001 Audi TT Roadster 225 (53,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.02.2023 5:21 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This Amulet Red with power black soft top stands out in any light.  The Ebony interior has leather seats that show a bit of wear and an Audi Concert cassette stereo, a six-CD changer, and a Bose sound system.  The turbocharged 1.8L I4 is factory rated at 225HP/207 lb-ft and it spins a 6-speed manual.  Engine service in March 2018 included replacement of the timing belt, tensioner pulley, and thermostat; the mass air flow sensor was replaced in October 2022.  The Carfax report is clean.

2014 Audi S5 Cabriolet (85,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.03.2023 2:26 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Be ready for summer by winning the bid on this Moonlight Blue metallic with a brown soft top and a black interior with Chestnut Brown Milano leather seats and aluminum trim.  The supercharged 3.0L V6 runs an APR Stage 1 ECU tune and that enhanced power flows to a 7-speed S tronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage but there are a few dings/scratches that reflect the cars age/mileage.

2016 Audi S6 (44,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.03.2023 2:50 PM EDT

Another Moonlight Blue metallic finish for you but this time with 4-doors.  This Prestige trim model has the factory’s Sport, Driver Assistance, and Black Optic package, and aftermarket goodies from APR, Eurocode, EBC and 20” VS Forged VS08 wheels.  Please read the listing for details.  Drivetrain is a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 enhanced by a Stage 1 tune and a 7-speed S tronic.  The Carfax report is clean but the engine bay needs a thorough detailing.

2008 Audi RS 4 (81,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.03.2023 5:31 PM EDT

Sold new in Canada, this beauty (eh) was imported to the US in 2021.  Misano Red pearl over an interior with seats trimmed in black and Crimson Red Audi Exclusive Nappa leather with contrasting piping.  The 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft) had carbon cleaning service and fuel injectors replaced in 2021; the intake flaps have been removed.  It rolls on multi-piece 20×9″ BBS LM wheels, the OEM Dynamic Ride Control, and replacement control arms that were fitted in 2021.  Carfax reports an accident damage claim report in July 2013 but states the claim amount was $0.

2015 Audi R8 V8 Coupe (1,500 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.04.2023 2:34 PM EDT

Low mileage and one owner!  Someone said “future collectable” in this listing’s comments.  I’d say it’s collectable now.  This was the last year for the 430HP/317 lb-ft 4.2L V8, and it’s connected to a 6-speed manual.  Classic Daytona Gray pearl with silver sideblades, protected by a ceramic coating applied in 2019, over a black cabin with the extended red Fine Nappa leather package on the seats and doors and B&O sound.  Of course the Carfax report is clean.

2014 Audi S7 (107,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.05.2023 3:06 PM EDT

Outside: recently corrected Brilliant Black with the Black Optic Package and tinted windows.  Inside: black with Valcona leather seats, Carbon Atlas inlays, and a Bang & Olufsen advanced sound system.  The 20” Vöxx wheels are powered by a 4.0L turbocharged V8 (420HP/406 lb-ft), a 7-speed S tronic, and sport diff.  The Carfax report is clean but the seller reports a “Vehicle lights: malfunction” error message was diagnosed as a faulty light control module.

2003 Audi RS 6 (52,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.05.2023 4:23 PM EDT

This fast sedan has a twin-turbo 4.2L V8, factory rated at 450HP/415 lb-ft, that’s mated to a 5-speed Tiptronic.  The Daytona Gray metallic is over a black interior with silver piped leather seats and carbon fiber trim.  Please read the listing for recent service done and the seller notes a few remaining issues (leaking valve cover gasket, front outer tie rods are probably worn not torn).  Carfax reports damage in March 2021, the seller notes a left door was replaced, the left-rear quarter panel was repaired and refinished, and touch-up paint was applied to the car in April 2021.
