Audi Club Auction Watch: 05.18.2023

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.

This week’s standout car is the European-spec 2001 RS 4 Avant imported from Japan which had a recent engine-out service.  And speaking of imports, if you live in the States you may want to import the supercharged R8 that’s immediately below which resides in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  If you want either of these two you’d better get bidding, their auctions end today along with a 2019 e-tron listing.  If they’re not your cup of tea, please browse through the rest of this week’s listing to see if anything else captures your interest.  Enjoy!

2014 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (21,000 Kilometers)

Bring a Trailer – 05.18.2023 1:40 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  Something powerful lurks beneath that Phantom Black pearl wearing matte wrap.  That would be a 5.2L V10 equipped with a VF Engineering VF750 supercharger and a Fabspeed Motorsport Valvetronic Performance Package (Supersport X-pipe exhaust system, ECU tuning upgrade, and BMC F1 air filters).  That 600+ HP (see dyno report in pictures) flows into a 7-speed S tronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2001 Audi RS 4 Avant (107,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.18.2023 2:10 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  Well-traveled: a European-market wagon imported from Japan in 2022 and federalized in April 2023.  The 2.7L twin-turbo V6 was pulled for significant service in December 2022, see listing for details on this and the minor mods.  Avus Silver over a black interior with Recaro leather seats.

2019 Audi e-tron (21,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.18.2023 4:02 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends late this PM!  It’s Glacier White metallic over a prestige trim level black interior full of goodies, see included window sticker.  Motivation comes from two electric motors for 355HP/414 lb-ft total power, 402HP/490 lb-ft when boost is engaged.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder (16,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.19.2023 1:36 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This Brilliant Red droptop previously listed on BaT in September 2022 when it bid to $80K.  The 5.2L V10 (525HP/391 lb-ft) mates to an R tronic gearbox.  It’s a clean looking car that has a clean Carfax report.

2017 Audi RS 7 (43,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.19.2023 2:47 PM EDT

Wow!  That Satin Energetic Yellow vinyl wrap means never losing your car in the parking lot.  Originally it’s Prism Silver Crystal Effect over a black interior featuring carbon fiber inlays and Valcona leather seating.  The 4.0L twin-turbo V8 now runs an APR Stage 1 tune and that enhanced power flows to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Please read the listing for the additional mods.  All this and a clean Carfax report too.

2013 Audi A8 L W12 (51,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.19.2023 6:30 PM EDT

The big engine: the 6.3L W12 is factory rated at 500HP/463 lb-ft and it spins an 8-speed gearbox with a sport diff.  The color is Phantom Black pearl outside, black inside too with full leather heated/ventilated/massaging front seats, gloss black trim accents the dash, center console, door panels, and front seatbacks, Bose sound, four-zone climate control, a rear seat entertainment system, and powered sunshades for the rear windows too.  Clean Carfax report too.

2015 Audi R8 V8 Coupe (13,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.20.2023 1:40 PM EDT

This Audi Exclusive matte Daytona Gray with Black Optic package and carbon Sigma sideblades over red Nappa full leather package is back again after selling in October 2022 for $118K when it only had 8,500 miles on it.  The 4.2L V8 (430HP/317 lb-ft) mates to the preferred 6-speed manual.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2002 Audi TT Coupe ALMS Edition (158,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.20.2023 1:50 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This ALMS Commemorative Edition is one of 500 finished in Avus Silver Pearl Effect and built to pay tribute to Audi’s American Le Mans Series wins and championships in 2000 and 2001.  The listing states the interior has Amber Red leather but that’s the Baseball Optic package color, this is more like Crimson Red.  It’s powered by a turbocharged 1.8L I4 paired with a 6-speed manual.  Please read the listing for the significant service done since 2019.  A clean Carfax report.

2015 Audi Q7 TDI (10,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.20.2023 4:07 PM EDT

No Reserve.  That color is Atlantis Blue metallic and it’s over a black interior with leather seats, walnut trim, and WeatherTech floor mats.  Power unit is a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 (240HP/406 lb-ft) mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The Dieselgate recall was done in January 2020.  It was one owner before the selling dealer bought it and Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

1990 Audi 200 (Total Mileage Unknown)

Bring a Trailer – 05.23.2023 1:38 PM EDT

This oldie but goodie would’ve been right at home at last week’s Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals.  It’s turbocharged 2.2L I5 was factory rated at 162HP/177 ft-lbs and what’s left of the power flows into a 5-speed manual.  The total mileage is unknown because the odometer and gauge cluster digital screens are inoperable, but the 6-digit odometer show 195K.  The Pearl White body has a few dents, the black interior is well-worn, and more flaws are detailed in the listing, but after all, it’s 33 years old.

2009 Audi R8 V8 Coupe (26,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.23.2023 3:05 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Finished in Phantom Black pearl with body color sideblades over a black cabin with Luxor Beige leather seats and trim plus B&O sound.  Power from the 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft) spins the desirable 6-speed manual.  Carfax reports an accident with another motor vehicle in August 2016 resulting in minor damage to the rear and the seller reports that the car requires an alignment.

2019 Audi RS 3 (21,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.23.2023 4:18 PM EDT

This car’s a good candidate for the new Lemon Squad inspection feature as Carfax reports a deer collision in July 2021 and a rear impact with another motor vehicle in August 2021 and for both the report states the vehicle was not damaged and yet there’s a dent on front edge of hood and the front bumper is misaligned by the passenger’s side headlight.  Otherwise, the Glacier White metallic paint appears in good condition and options include Technology and Dynamic packages, red RS Design Selection Interior, and carbon fiber inlays.  And don’t overlook the turbocharged 2.5L I5 (394HP/354 lb-ft) under the hood.
