Enthusiasts could spend all day searching for their favorite car (or cars) on the many incredible auction platforms that now exist. 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.
This week’s Auction Watch edition is a day earlier than usual as the wife and I are on our way to Georgia for Quattro de Mayo. Look for the QDM story in a future issue of quattro magazine.
For each listing below there are two pictures of the car, one before and one after its description.
2009 Audi A4 Avant (127,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 04.28.2022 2:02 PM EDT
No Reserve. The perfect grocery getter? It’s finished in Meteor Gray Metallic over light gray leather seats and interior. This generation’s EA888 2.0L engine had oil consumption issues but this one had its pistons and rods replaced under an Audi campaign in 2021. It also wears an Audi-installed remanufactured cylinder head; and had rear shocks, front tires, turbocharger wastegate, timing chains, intake camshaft, oil pan, and sunroof drain tubes and gaskets replaced. The Carfax report is clean.
2011 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (25,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 04.28.2022 3:56 PM EDT
The 5.2L V10 in this R8 is mated to the desirable 6-speed gated manual. And the V10 may sound even better thanks to the Rev9 titanium exhaust it wears, the car’s only non-OEM part. It’s finished in Daytona Gray Pearl with Carbon fiber blades over black leather. The Carfax report is free of accidents and damage.
2005 Audi TT V6 Coupe (71,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 04.28.2022 4:06 PM EDT
No Reserve. Here’s a Mark I TT in Light Silver Metallic over a black/Aviator Gray leather interior. The 3.2L V6, factory rated at 247HP/ 236 lb-ft, is mated to a 6-speed dual clutch automatic. Carfax reports two accidents with damage, one to the front and one to the rear.
2007 Audi RS 4 (141,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 04.30.2022 2:00 PM EDT
I like to say, red cars are faster, and this one certainly should be given its long list of modifications to the drivetrain and suspension. Please see the listing for details. That’s Misano Red Pearl over black with Recaro Silk Nappa leather seats. The Carfax report is accident and damage free.
2013 Audi Q7 TDI (11,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 04.30.2022 4:02 PM EDT
No Reserve. The 3.0L turbodiesel V6 is factory rated at 240HP/406 lb-ft and this one’s mated to an 8-speed automatic. This silver over black Premium Plus trim level is a one-owner car. The Carfax report is clean.
2007 Audi RS 4 (48,000 Miles)
Dream Cars – 05.01.2022 8:00 PM EDT
Another Misano Red Pearl over black leather beauty but this one should be all original. A two-owner southern California car, it looks very clean and in great condition. Its 420HP/317 lb-ft 4.2L V8 is paired with a 6-speed manual running through Audi’s Torsen quattro permanent all-wheel drive for a 60/40 front/rear power split.
2007 Audi S8 (119,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 05.02.2022 1:46 PM EDT
No Reserve. Another V10 but this time in the Transporter’s favorite car. First year of the 2nd gen D3 platform, this one’s Phantom Black Pearl with a black interior and rides on 20” Rotiform wheels. Audi rated this 5.2L V10 at 450HP/398 lb-ft and it’s mated to a 6-speed auto. Carfax reports minor damage to the rear in March 2019.
2003 Audi RS 6 (96,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 05.02.2022 5:06 PM EDT
The twin-turbo 4.2L V8, factory rating 450HP/417 lb-ft, was reconnected to a 6-speed manual (with a new clutch in 2021) by the current owner. D2 Racing coilovers are also added to this Daytona Gray Pearl over black leather/wood trimmed, primarily California-owned car. The Carfax report is lengthy and accident/damage free.
