Audi Club Auction Watch: 04.27.2023

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.

Another first on Auction Watch: a 1 of 25 RS 6 Avant Tribute Edition.  Is it the hot ticket this week?  It could be the 2009 R8 Coupe with under 3,000 miles on it.  Or is the hot ticket the RS 4 with an Audi Exclusive interior—those Magma Red seat inserts and door panels really wake-up a black interior.  And then again, there’s a Nogaro Blue, supercharged S4 Avant.  Check out these gems as well as the rest of this week’s listings below.

2013 Audi S6 (117,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.27.2023 1:44 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  No Reserve.  The stealth look of the Phantom Black pearl finish may be overcome by the AWE Touring exhaust now fitted to the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 which has also been treated to a DS1 engine tune, AWE S-Flow carbon fiber intake, and APR downpipes.  It’s a Prestige trim-level car so the black interior with diamond-stitched leather seats comes with extra goodies standard.  Carfax reports minor accident damage in July 2017 but no further details.

2008 Audi RS 4 (51,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.27.2023 3:15 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends mid-PM!  Original owner.  We’ve seen this before on Auction Watch: the black and Crimson Red Nappa leather Audi Exclusive interior.  The seat inserts and door panels are in red while Piano Black trim accents the cabin.  Nice floor mats too.  Outside it’s finished in seriously shiny Daytona Gray pearl.  The 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft) and 6-speed manual are unmodified as is the Dynamic Ride Control that had its dampers, hardware, and hydraulic lines replaced in March 2023.  Carfax reports minor damage to the front in August 2012 and pictures show right-front tire and rim damage.

2014 Audi S4 (124,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.27.2023 3:36 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends mid-PM!  No Reserve.  The OEM drive train (3.0L supercharged V6 factory rated at 333HP/325 lb-ft paired with a 7-speed S tronic and optional sport diff) is unmodified but cosmetic changes were made to this Glacier White metallic, Prestige trim sedan.  Those are a black-painted grille, blacked-out badges, a carbon fiber trunk lip spoiler added, wheels painted gray, and window tint.  Carfax reports minor damage to the front in November 2021 which the seller states resulted from hitting a deer.  The hood, passenger side fender, and passenger side headlight were replaced to repair the damage.

2004 Audi S4 Avant (122,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.28.2023 1:30 PM EDT

That Nogaro Blue finish over a black interior with leather/silver Alcantara seats is just the starting point.  Under the bonnet lies a VF Engineering supercharger atop a 4.2L V8 that had significant service done with its installation.  The 6-speed manual was treated to a South Bend Clutch Stage 3 unit at that time.  See the listing’s Recent Service History for details.  It rolls on 18” OZ Racing Ultraleggera wheels.  Carfax reports an accident with another vehicle in October 2006, minor damage to the right side in July 2010, and an accident with another vehicle in December 2016.

2019 Audi A8 L (50,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 04.28.2023 3:01 PM EDT

A very well-optioned limo: First Edition, Executive, Driver Assistance, and Cold Weather packages.  That Glacier White metallic has paint protection film on the front bumper, front fenders, and door mirror caps.  The interior is primarily Sarder Brown with Valcona leather seats and light-colored Alcantara headliner.  Powertrain is a twin-turbo 4.0L V8 (453HP/487 lb-ft) and an 8-speed Tiptronic.  A clean Carfax report too.

2010 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (30,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.28.2023 3:45 PM EDT

Heads-up Western Canada Chapter members, this Sepang Blue pearl over black leather coupe is in your area.  Paint protection film covers the nose, rocker moldings, side blades, and door cups and the sideblades were painted silver under previous ownership.  The 5.2L V10, factory rated at 525HP/391 lb-ft, may make a few more ponies thanks to a STaSIS Motorsports exhaust which you get to hear as you shift the 6-speed manual.  The air conditioning compressor was replaced in March 2023 and the Carfax report is clean.

2008 Audi RS 4 (125,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 04.29.2023 2:35 PM EDT

This fast sedan just sold on BaT in January 2023 for $30,000.  The only update since then is the application of ceramic coating to the black finish that was repainted in 2021.  It has a lot of nice mods and service work, please read the listing for the work done in October 2020.  Highlights include: H&R coilovers, a SPEC Stage 2 clutch kit and lightweight flywheel, Milltek exhaust components, and Recaro Sportster CS front seats.  Carfax reports minor damage in October 2021.

2008 Audi S5 Coupe (99,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.01.2023 1:38 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Unmodified, Phantom Black pearl over black interior with the Technology Package, B&O sound, leather seats and aluminum trim.  Best of all, a 6-speed manual to enjoy the 4.2L V8, factory rated at 354HP/325 lb-ft, as-is or contemplate what modification you’d like to make.  Carfax reports an accident in November 2010 resulting in right front damage and the date code on the tires means they should be replaced sooner than later.

2009 Audi R8 V8 Coupe (3,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.01.2023 3:30 PM EDT

Low mileage/one owner/potential collectable here.  The 4.2L V8 is surrounded by carbon fiber and factory rated at 420HP/317 lb-ft and mates to a 6-speed R tronic.  It’s finished in Phantom Black pearl, has carbon fiber sigma sideblades, and inside the black cabin are leather sport seats, black Alcantara headliner, the Audi navigation system plus package, a B&O sound system, and carbon sigma trim.  With so few miles on, you guessed it, the Carfax report is clean.

2014 Audi S7 (69,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.01.2023 4:02 PM EDT

The 4.0L twin-turbo V8 (420HP/406 lb-ft) exhales just a touch easier now that the center muffler is removed; a 7-speed S tronic and a sport diff complete the drivetrain.  The Estoril Blue Crystal paint is over a black dash/Lunar Silver seats and headliner interior with Carbon Atlas trim.  Up front an RS 7-style grill is added and the suspension is lowered through the use of VAG-COM software, see the listing’s comments section on these items.  It’s covered by a transferrable, CarMax-backed MaxCare warranty plan until October 2023 and the Carfax report is clean.

2021 Audi RS 6 Avant RS Tribute Edition (9,300 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.01.2023 4:18 PM EDT

Paying homage to the RS 2 Avant, this special edition run was limited to 25 cars all finished in Nogaro Blue.  The black interior features Valcona leather seats with Denim Blue contrast stitching, Executive, and Driver Assistance packages, and B&O 3D Advanced sound.  Mods are an ABT Performance Kit, clear paint protection film on some exterior surfaces, and tinted windows.  Under the hood is the 4.0L twin-turbo V8, factory rated at 591HP/590 lb-ft, and it spins an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Of course the Carfax report is clean.

2018 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (9,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.02.2023 2:39 PM EDT

The second generation R8 has sharper lines that look great in Mythos Black metallic.  That color’s over a black interior featuring a diamond stitch full leather package.  There’s optional carbon fiber packages inside and out and red calipers to complete the look.  The 5.2L V10 is rated by Audi at 532HP/398 lb-ft and mates to a 7-speed S tronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2018 Audi S5 Sportback (89,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.02.2023 2:42 PM EDT

A Prestige trim level long roof covered in Nardo Gray over a black interior featuring S Sport, Driver Assistance, and Cold Weather packages, leather/Alcantara seats, and carbon atlas inlays.  The only mod is tinted windows.  The B9 gen S5 is powered by a 3.0L turbocharged V6 (354HP/369 lb-ft) connected to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Please check the Recent Service History in the listing for owner #2’s efforts.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

1990 Audi V8 (84,000* Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.02.2023 3:15 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Previously listed on BaT in June 2022 when it bid to $7,000, it was acquired in January 2023 by the selling dealer who serviced the brakes, replaced power steering hoses, and mounted Basket Weave 17″ alloy wheels wrapped in 215/45 Falken Azenis FK510 tires.  It’s finished in metallic black over light gray leather with wood trim.  The 3.6L V8 is factory rated at 240HP/254 lb-ft and is mated to a 4-speed ZF automatic.  Last year’s seller replaced the timing belt, engine mounts, idle air control valve, thermostat, and converted the A/C to R134a.  Carfax reports no accidents but notes (*) a mileage inconsistency corresponding to a 6-year data gap.
