Audi Club Auction Watch: 03.31.2022

Words: Steve Johnson

With so many incredible auction platforms, both traditional and untraditional, enthusiasts could spend all day searching all these outlets for interesting cars hitting the market.  Audi Club aims to keep its members up to date with Ingolstadt’s finest as they are listed with this new series of stories.  We’ll monitor the auction houses looking for interesting new finds, and hopefully our Audi enthusiast members will be informed enough to snap up the best of them.

If you liked last week’s Amulet Red TT Roadster 180 listed on Bring a Trailer but it wasn’t enough horsepower for you, there’s an Amulet Red TT Roadster 225 (Lot T171, No Reserve) on Thursday’s docket at Mecum’s Houston Auction.  Also check-out Lot S28, a No Reserve Panther Black R8 V10 Spyder that will cross the block early on Saturday in Houston.

Since there are only five cars this week I put a picture of each car before and after its description.  With that, let’s check out this week’s listings.
