A first listing from Hemmings, a second chance to bid on a 5000, the third R8 GT we’ve seen — here are this week’s listings.

1981 Audi 5000 S Diesel (52,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.14.2022 2:31 PM EDT

Déjà vu!  No Reserve.  Your second chance to bid on this car after the deal fell thru on the Cars & Bids auction one month ago.  It’s Helios Blue Metallic over a blue interior and powered by a 2.0L, I5 diesel that puts out 67HP/85 lb-ft.  It looks pretty good considering its age, see listing for significant recent maintenance.

2004 Audi S4 Avant (131,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 04.14.2022 2:42 PM EDT

Bid quick on this B6!  This well-optioned Light Silver Metallic over black leather is powered by the 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) mated to a 6-speed manual.  The only mods are H&R coilovers and MagnaFlow axle-back exhaust.  See listing for Service History notes.  No accidents or discrepancies on the Carfax report.

2003 Audi RS 6 (105,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 04.14.2022 2:58 PM EDT

Not much bidding time left!  Almost murdered-out—the grill and mirrors caps await the black-out.  The 4.2L V8 is twin-turbocharged for a factory rating of 450HP/415 lb-ft and this one’s mated to a 5-speed automatic.  Mechanical mods include ST coilovers, 034Motorsport sway bar end links, and a Billy Boat cat-back exhaust.  There are a few trim mods for looks; it has been driven so it’s not a show car but Carfax reports it is accident free.

2008 Audi S8 V10 (115,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.16.2022 5:04 PM EDT

No Reserve.  The Ice Silver Metallic almost makes this S8 disappear into the snow, but its 5.2L V10 will make you disappear down the road.  Factory V10 numbers are 450HP/398 lb-ft but this one has a tune from JHM Tuning and a MagnaFlow catalytic converter so expect a bit more.  Inside there’s black leather along with a beige Alcantara headliner and carbon-fiber trim.  The Carfax report is clean.

2002 Audi allroad (178,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 04.18.2022 1:38 PM EDT

Don’t let the mileage scare you, if the OEM part hasn’t been maintained it’s been swapped for an upgraded aftermarket piece.  Read the listing for the lengthy modifications and service history, it’s impressive.  The Sprint Blue over black and gray interior are original though and they show their age here and there.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2013 Audi S4 (122,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 04.18.2022 2:02 PM EDT

That’s Ibis White over black with 2-tone black/Magma Red leather seats and carbon atlas trim.  The drive train is the supercharged 3.0L V6 (333HP/325 lb-ft) mated to a 6-speed manual and finished off with the Sport Diff.  No accidents or discrepancies on the Carfax report.

2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder (24,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 04.19.2022 3:06 PM EDT

Another rare R8 GT for the second week in a row!  This one’s #150 of 333 worldwide/50 in the US market.  The GT is 265 lbs lighter than the standard R8 thru the use of carbon fiber and aluminum.  It’s triple black: Phantom Black Pearl, black leather, and black top.  Unfortunately Carfax reports #150 had an accident resulting in minor to moderate damage.

2002 Audi S6 Avant (139,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 04.20.2022 1:30 PM EDT

This line from the listing summarizes the car well, “Nearly every part of this S6 Avant has been modified to some extent.”  Only available in 2002-2003, this model is rare and would be even rarer if this one hadn’t been rebuilt after being declared totaled.  It’s powered by a modified 4.2L V8 now mated to a 6-speed manual and is finished in Atlas Gray over black/silver leather/carbon fiber trim.

2001 Audi S4 (34,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.20.2022 4:00 PM EDT

No Reserve.  The twin-turbocharged 2.7L V6 (factory rating: 250HP/258 lb-ft) is mated to 6-speed manual with a B&M short shifter.  Other mods include AWE Tuning cat-back exhaust, ST coilovers, and Hotchkis front & rear sway bars.  Carfax reports the car is a Buyback/Lemon from owner 1, coincidental that it’s Imola Yellow over Onyx Silk Nappa leather?

2014 Audi S5 (49,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 04.20.2022 2:10 PM EDT

The B8.5 S5 is a fantastic car but I own one so I may be a bit bias.  This one’s finished in Phantom Black Pearl over black/Lunar Silver Alcantara.  Power is provided by a supercharged 3.0L V6 factory rated at 333HP/325 lb-ft and it’s mated to a 7-speed S tronic with the Sport Diff option.  This car is unmodified and I can tell you from first-hand experience that APR stage 1 ECU and TCU tunes applied to this car will put a big smile on your face!

2002 Audi TT Roadster 225 (67,000 Miles)

Hemmings – 04.21.2022 4:30 PM EDT

Plenty of time left to bid on this Brilliant White over Valcona Denim Blue roadster.  Drop the top that was replaced in 2017 and enjoy a well-maintained ride.  The 225HP/207 lb-ft version of the 1.8L I4 has the 6-speed manual transmission.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
