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.

It’s ‘Pollen Season’ here in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley as I’m sure it is in the many locations where people are reading this post.  So while you’re taking a break from trying to keep your Daytona Gray, Mythos Black, or other similar shades of Audi clean, please take a few minutes to look over this week’s 17 auction listings below.  I’ll bet you can barely see pollen on a Kyalami Green finish.

Bid quickly the listing ends mid-PM!  The naturally aspirated 4.2L FSI V8, factory rated at 450HP/317 lb-ft, makes wonderful sounds that you’ll be able to hear even better when you lower the black soft top.  A 7-speed S tronic and sport diff complete the drivetrain.  The Panther Black Crystal exterior really pops in the sun and inside the ventilated black Milano leather front comfort seats will keep you cool.  There’s even a clean Carfax report.

Bid quickly the listing ends late-PM!  No Reserve.  A 3.0L turbodiesel V6 (240HP/428 lb-ft) powers all four wheels in this SUV through an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The pictured sticker proves the “Dieselgate” recall was done.  It’s Ibis White outside, inside the black cabin you’ll find Titanium Gray leather seats (that sure look black to me), B&O sound, and wood trim.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2009 Audi Q7 (25,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.13.2023 5:33 PM EDT

2011 Audi S5 Coupe (67,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.14.2023 2:33 PM EDT

The Quartz Gray metallic with the Alu-Optic door mirror caps fits this coupe well.  The only mods are cosmetic: an RS-style front grille and tinted windows.  The black interior has Nappa leather seats, brushed aluminum trim and diamond-stitched floor mats.  The drivetrain is a 4.2L V8 (354HP/325 lb-ft) mated to a 6-speed Tiptronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

The 4.2L V8 that powers this coupe is factory rated at 420HP/317 lb-ft and it spins a 6-speed R-tronic.  That’s Brilliant Red paint with carbon fiber Sigma sideblades over a driver-focused black cabin with Fine Nappa leather seats and B&O sound.  No accidents or damage are reported by Carfax.

2011 Audi R8 V8 Coupe (50,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.15.2023 1:20 PM EDT

If ‘Arrest Me Red’ is too flashy for you, how about this stealthy Phantom Black pearl coupe with gray sideblades and black rings/badges?  This one’s 4.2L V8 (also 420HP/317 lb-ft) mates to the more desirable 6-speed manual.  A QuickSilver exhaust with remote-controlled valves is fitted and the seller reports the magnetorheological Audi Magnetic Ride dampers were recently replaced.  Inside the black cabin are leather seats and a Pioneer touchscreen stereo with Apple CarPlay connectivity.  A clean Carfax too.

2022 Audi RS e-tron GT (9,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.15.2023 2:35 PM EDT

The dual-synchronous motor system, factory rated at 590HP/612 lb-ft, rivals an RS 6 Avant’s ICE output and it’s powered by a 93 kWh battery with active liquid cooling.  Not a shade of white, but Suzuka Gray over a full leather and carbon performance packages interior with Arras Red seats, matte carbon fiber trim, and Dinamica headliner.  No accidents or damage are reported by Carfax.

2003 Audi RS 6 (92,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.16.2023 2:14 PM EDT

No Reserve.  The twin-turbo 4.2L V8 (450HP/415 lb-ft) was treated to an engine out service in 2021 at which time multiple components were replaced, please read the listing for details.  The silver exterior you see is a respray done in 2020.  The black interior features Ebony leather seats with silver piping and carbon fiber trim.  Carfax reports two accidents: damage to the car’s front in August 2007 and a sideswipe in April 2020 resulting in minor damage to the left front/side.

2015 Audi S4 (73,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.16.2023 3:42 PM EDT

No Reserve.  That’s Brilliant Black over a black cabin with the Technology and Fine Nappa Leather packages with red rhombus/S4 embossed front seats.  Under the hood the 3.0L V6 now runs with an aftermarket intake, supercharger pulley, engine management software (sounds like stage 2), and an ECS Tuning valved exhaust sans catalytic converters.  An ECS Tuning short shifter operates the 6-speed manual with Sachs Performance XTend clutch components.  It’s also equipped with height-adjustable H&R springs and sway bars.  On top of all that, there’s a clean Carfax report.

2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback (22,000 Miles)

cars & bids04.17.2023 1:44 PM EDT

Sonoma Green metallic—the US market launch color for this model and it’s covered with XPEL paint protection film; tinted windows complete the look.  This very well-optioned car has the Dynamic, Dynamic Plus, Black Optic Carbon, and Fine Nappa Leather packages, dynamic steering, and B&O sound.  Its 2.9L twin-turbo V6, factory rated at 444HP/443 lb-ft, will get your attention (as it did mine) when you exercise the 8-speed Tiptronic in Dynamic mode.  No accidents or damage are reported by Carfax.

2020 Audi RS 3 (6,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.17.2023 2:43 PM EDT

Kyalami Green!  One of 23 examples for MY 2020 sold in the US market and also the launch color if I’m correct.  That color is accented by matte Alu-optic accents on the grille, bumpers, and mirror caps.  Inside you find black Fine Nappa leather seats with Rock Gray diamond-stitched inserts, Navigation and Drivers Assistance packages, and carbon fiber inlays.  The turbocharged 2.5L I5 is factory rated at 400HP/354 lb-ft and it drives a 7-speed S tronic and exhales through a sport exhaust.  A clean Carfax report too.

2015 Audi S5 Coupe (47,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.17.2023 3:25 PM EDT

A California car.  The supercharged 3.0L V6 (333HP/325 lb-ft) mates to a 7-speed S tronic but it lacks the optional sport diff.  Glacier White metallic on the outside, black interior with optional Fine Nappa leather seats, technology package, and B&O sound; also there’s carbon fiber inlays in the doors and around the cup holders.  No accidents or damage are reported by Carfax.

2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet (26,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.17.2023 3:29 PM EDT

Prestige trim level.  That Daytona Gray pearl and black interior with carbon fiber trim really make the Magna Red Fine Nappa leather seats stand out.  The B9 generation S5 has a 3.0L turbocharged V6 factory rated at 354HP/369 lb-ft that connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Mods reported by the seller include paint protection film with ceramic coating, drilled/slotted brake rotors, ceramic brake pads, a carbon fiber air intake, and a carbon fiber engine cover.  There’s a clean Carfax report too.

2003 Audi RS 6 (14,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.18.2023 2:20 PM EDT

Low mileage!  The twin-turbo 4.2L V8 (450HP/415 lb-ft) mated to a 5-speed Tiptronic only had one owner who kept it and the entire car stock.  The well over 300 pictures show you it looks like new, even underneath.  Valve cover gaskets, spark plugs, front CV boots, and output shaft seal were replaced in March 2023.  The color is Mugello Blue pearl and it’s over a contrasting silver leather seats with black piping and matching headliner.  No accidents or damage are reported by Carfax.

2021 Audi SQ8 (24,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.18.2023 3:29 PM EDT

Orca Black metallic with a Black Optic package over a black interior featuring Prestige trim level, Luxury package and carbon vector inlays.  The drivetrain is a 4.0L twin-turbo V8, (500HP/568 lb-ft) and an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The only mods are 22” Ferrada wheels and window tint.  There’s no maintenance history in the Carfax report but the seller reports the 20,000-mile service was performed in March 2023 at about 22,000 miles.  Ask the seller for receipts!

2005 Audi A8 L W12 (51,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.18.2023 5:23 PM EDT

No Reserve.  The big 6.0L 12-cylinder, factory rated at 444HP/428 lb-ft, powers this ‘Transporter’.  A 6-speed Tiptronic completes the powertrain.  It looks like Brilliant Black over a beige interior with eye-catching burl wood trim.  A K40 radar detector is said to be installed, the interior and exterior are showing signs of wear and tear, but the Carfax report is clean.
