Audi Club Auction Watch: 04.20.2023

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.

Drop what you’re doing and check out the first listing below.  If you want it, and it’s still Thursday before 1 PM Eastern, you’d better get bidding!  If the Sepang Blue long roof isn’t your style, there are two short-fused Misano Red rockets and a Phantom Black fast sedan just below it that you might like.  If none of the above work for you, or it’s already too late, there are 10 more listings that might interest you, especially the last one!  Please check them all out below.

2006 Audi A6 Avant (110,000* Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.20.2023 1:10 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  As highlighted last week in a Find of the Day, this long roof was converted to a C6 S6 clone in 2015 performed by German AutoHaus in Woodinville, WA.  That included an engine swap (*) to a 5.2L V10 (from an S6 sedan) and much, much more.  This is a must-read listing, not only for the details on the conversion, but for the comments that clarify the Carfax report’s “structural damage” and “branded title” warning flags.  That color is Sepang Blue and the interior is black.  The underbody components have paid a price ride for that low ride height as seen in numerous pictures.

2008 Audi RS 4 (79,000* Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.20.2023 1:35 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  Misano Red pearl is my favorite Audi red shade and this fast sedan’s finish covers a black interior with Nappa leather Recaro seats and brushed aluminum trim.  The OEM drivetrain (420HP/317 lb-ft 4.2L V8 mated to a 6-speed manual) is intact but the Dynamic Ride Control was replaced by KW Suspensions V3 coilovers along with 034Motorsport tie rod ends.  Please read the listing and comment concerning the Carfax-reported (*) mileage discrepancy and accidents.

2013 Audi TT Coupe (43,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.20.2023 2:19 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  Lightning strikes twice in the form of this Misano Red pearl Mark II.  And again that beautiful color is over a black interior and this one has a Prestige package.  A Pioneer DMH-WT7600NEX touchscreen head unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and glovebox-mounted USB and HDMI ports are add-ons.  The 2.0L turbocharged I4 in the base TT is factory rated at 211HP/258 lb-ft and connects to a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission.  It has a clean Carfax report.

2008 Audi RS 4 (76,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.20.2023 4:25 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends late this PM!  Another fast sedan but this time in Phantom Black pearl over a black interior with Recaro leather seats, Piano black trim and a new headliner installed in November 2022.  Mods are limited to tinted windows and a Bovee Bluetooth module, that means the Dynamic Ride Control and OEM drivetrain are as-installed in Neckarsulm, Germany.  Please see the listing for excellent Recent Service History.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2008 Audi S5 Coupe (110,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.21.2023 3:22 PM EDT

No Reserve round #2 for Tyler Hoover’s S5 after the winning bidder failed to complete the deal two weeks ago.  Equipped with a 4.2L V8 powered B8, factory #s: 354HP/325 lb-ft, it now breathes in through an AWE S-FLO intake and exhales into a Meisterschaft exhaust; a 6-speed manual completes the drivetrain.  The videos in the listing document the recent service done on the car that has a clean Carfax report but is showing its age/mileage a bit.

2002 Audi A6 (27,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.22.2023 2:37 PM EDT

No Reserve, one owner, and this past Tuesday’s Find of the Day.  Well-equipped with the Preferred Luxury and Sport packages, this Pearlescent White over an Ecru interior with Bose premium sound looks like a garage find.  The twin-turbo 2.7L V6 (250HP/258 lb-ft) had its timing belt replaced in 2014, subsequent service includes replacing the turbochargers, turbo gaskets, exhaust manifold gaskets, and valve cover gaskets in addition to coolant and oil changes.  The 5-speed Tiptronic had its transmission housing seal and rear seal replaced as well.  The Carfax report is clean but a coolant leak is noted in a November 2022 service record.

2009 Audi R8 V8 Coupe (19,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.22.2023 4:55 PM EDT

Another one owner car, this one’s finished in Brilliant Red with body color sideblades over Luxor Beige leather package.  The cabin now has an Alpine touchscreen stereo but the factory stereo and pictured set of OZ Racing wheels are included in the sale.  The 4.2L V8, factory rated at 420HP/317 lb-ft, had VF Engineering ECU software installed in 2010 but is said to be removed; the desirable 6-speed manual is still there as always.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2002 Audi S6 Avant (184,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.23.2023 1:59 PM EDT

The real deal S6 Avant here.  Since previously selling on BaT in August 2021 for $16,500, this long roof had sunroof and power-window repairs, and alternator, air conditioning compressor, and timing belt pulley replaced.  In June 2020 it received a 01E 6-speed manual transplant, all the better to enjoy the 4.2L V8 with its JH Motorsports engine management software.  Please read the listing for the additional mod details.  Carfax reports minor damage to the front in 2016 and 2017; the driver’s seat is showing its age.

2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus Coupe (27,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.23.2023 2:55 PM EDT

Forget the factory power rating for this V10, it now wears a VF Engineering supercharger to cram air in and an Akropovic exhaust to let it out.  Handling enhancements are courtesy of KW Suspension coilovers and Vorsteiner wheels but the seller notes the left front is dented.  The look of the Daytona Gray pearl finished body (over black leather Recaro racing shell seats) is tweaked via a Vorsteiner front lip spoiler and side skirts.  Carfax reports minor damage to the left front corner from hitting a parked vehicle in December 2016—before the first owner was even reported.

2022 Audi RS 6 Avant (9,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.24.2023 1:30 PM EDT

How about Audi’s latest 6-platform Avant?  A coat of Daytona Gray pearl with a Black Optic Package is covered by paint protection film (on front half) and ceramic coating; ceramic window tint completes the look.  Inside the cavernous black cabin you’ll find the Executive, Driver Assistance, and red RS Design packages.  Under the hood lies a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine whose factory rating of 591HP/590 lb-ft may be bumped-up a bit by RedStar Exhaust downpipes and the OEM Sport exhaust.  OEM downpipes come with the sale, the Thule roof rack does not, but a clean Carfax report does.

2016 Audi TTS Coupe (57,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.24.2023 2:33 PM EDT

This Daytona Gray pearl coat wraps a much smaller package in the form of a first year Mark III TT, and good things come in small packages.  The goodness of the 2.0L I4 under this one’s bonnet is enhanced by APR’s Stage 1 ECU and TCU tunes, spark plugs, coil packs, Open PEX carbon fiber intake, turbo inlet pipe, and turbo muffler delete.  Inside the black driver-focused cabin you’ll find options Technology Package, fine Nappa leather seats, and B&O sound.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2009 Audi R8 V8 Coupe (51,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.24.2023 5:40 PM EDT

Another ’09 R8 coupe but this one’s in Ice Silver metallic with silver sideblades, its 4.2L V8 mates to an R tronic gearbox, and it has more miles on it.  The interior is black with leather seats and the car rides on magnetorheological Audi Magnetic Ride dampers.  No mods are noted by the seller and no accidents or damage are reported by Carfax, but the engine bay could sure use a good clean-up and detailing.

2010 Audi A5 Cabriolet (65,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.25.2023 5:25 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This drophead coupe is finished in Quartz Gray metallic with black soft top over light gray leather seats with aluminum trim and B&O sound.  The turbocharged 2.0L I4 (factory #s: 211HP/258 lb-ft) connects to a 6-speed Tiptronic.  Carfax reports accident damage to the right side of the car following a sideswipe collision in August 2011; the right rear quarter panel is said to have been repainted.

2004 Audi S4 (100,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.26.2023 3:07 PM EDT

A B6 S4 in Nogaro Blue pearl over black leather Recaro seats with blue Alcantara inserts.  I’d stop right there but the 4.2L V8/6-speed manual drivetrain is worth talking about.  Its timing chain and tensioners were replaced in February 2023 along with the camshaft adjusters, front and rear main seals, serpentine belt, engine and cabin air filters, and gaskets for the timing cover, valve covers, intake and exhaust manifolds, oil pan, and exhaust gas recirculation valve, and clutch slave cylinder replacement.  An aftermarket stainless steel exhaust system is fitted as well.  A clean Carfax report too.
