Enthusiasts could spend all day searching for their favorite car (or more likely cars) on the many incredible auction platforms that now exist. So to save you time, Audi Club aims to keep its members up to date on Ingolstadt’s finest available for purchase with this series of stories. We’re monitoring auction sites for interesting finds and hopefully our Audi enthusiast members will be informed enough to snap up the objects of their desires.
Feel like bidding something collectable? How about the 1959 Auto Union 1000 Sp Coupe pictured above and below. It’s Lot #333.1 on Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction docket, 7-9 April. It won Best of Show – Audi at the Legends of the Autobahn in Monterey, CA, in August 2019. UPDATE #2, Monday, 11 April, 7:55 AM: Unfortunately a transportation issue prevented the car from arriving thus it never crossed the auction block. It’s possible the car will available in the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction June 30-July 2. It may still be found at the following link, but I can’t confirm it as the website wasn’t responding properly this morning: Barrett-Jackson.
Now, here are some more common Audi listings.
2003 Audi RS 6 (122,000 Miles)

2008 Audi S4 Avant (93,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 04.08.2022 2:26 PM EDT
After being totaled this S4 is reborn on a Rebuilt Title. The 4.2L V8, the drive train, and suspension received extensive upgrades. Read the listing for the numerous changes. The Brilliant Black has a few battle scars so this may be the perfect car to just ‘drive it like you stole it’ – after your winning bid, of course.
2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder (19,000 Miles)

2010 Audi A6 Avant (134,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 04.11.2022 2:26 PM EDT
No Reserve. A Prestige model and more, this Quartz Gray Metallic over black interior is a stunner.

Carfax reports its left/rear was damaged in an accident in August 2016.
2019 Audi A7 (16,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 04.12.2022 2:34 PM EDT
It may be only an A7 but it’s been enhanced with an MTM Stage 1 ECU tune, iPE exhaust, and H&R sport springs. That’s Daytona Gray Pearl over black interior; European market headlights, a factory S7 rear valance, and 21-inch Brixton wheels give it a unique look. Carfax reports no issues.
1986 Audi 4000 CS quattro (67,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 04.12.2022 3:30 PM EDT
An unmodified car with low mileage for its age, it’s finished in Zermatt Silver Metallic with a black interior. The CS model came equipped with a 2.2L I5 (115HP/126 lb-ft) mated to a 5-speed manual and quattro. The clean Carfax history is extensive but with some gaps.
2007 Audi A4 3.2 Avant (137,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 04.13.2022 2:10 PM EDT
A car well-worth restoring: a 3.2L V6 (255HP/243 lb-ft), 6-speed manual, unmodified, and a comprehensive Carfax history free of accidents and discrepancies. See listing for significant maintenance work done. The Brilliant Black paint has a few flaws, and the car is showing its age, but they’re minor overall.
