Audi Club Auction Watch: 05.23.2024

Words: Steve Johnson

Hello again Audi aficionados!  Thank you for clicking on another edition of Auction Watch where we’ve done the internet searching for you.  We’ve checked multiple car auction sites looking for Audi models worthy of your bids.  Each Thursday we post those listings calling out a car’s highlights, and include a few pictures and a link to the listing.  Our goal is to help you find the Audi that you’re looking for in time for you to bid on it.

We have one special edition model this week: a 2002 Mark II TT RS Final Edition.  It has Audi Exclusive touches inside and out, and a tweaked engine for additional enjoyment.  There’s also a Western Canada-residing RS 4 with an Audi Exclusive interior.  The elder statesmen this week is a 1984 Audi 4000 S with only 54,000 miles showing on the odometer.  Almost half this week’s listing are offerings from Audi Sport so keep scrolling if you’re looking for an R8 or an RS model, and check out the rest of this week’s many listings as well.  Thanks for reading!

Bid quickly, auction ends early-mid PM today!  This drophead coupe is finished in Ibis White with a black soft top over a black interior that has black leather seats and door panel inserts, B&O sound, and a Pioneer touchscreen stereo with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.  The magnetorheological Audi Magnetic Ride dampers were replaced under previous ownership.  The 5.2L V10 is factory rated at 525HP/391 lb-ft and spins a 6-speed manual with replacement clutch done in September 2022.  The Carfax report is clean but the powered engine cover release switch is inoperative, only manual operation works.

2013 Audi TT RS Final Edition (23,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.24.2024 2:31 PM EDT

This is the first Mark II TT RS Final Edition we’ve seen on Auction Watch, not surprising since only 30 were built (according to the listing) for the US Market.  They all featured Audi Exclusive Nimbus Grey pearl paint over an Audi Exclusive interior with black/red leather seats and red interior trim.  The turbocharged 2.5L I5 in this example was modified in 2020 with an EFR 7163 hybrid turbocharger, a CTS Turbo intercooler, United Motorsports engine management software, an Autotech high-pressure fuel pump, and a 034Motorsport carbon fiber intake.  All that enhanced power flows to a 6-speed manual with Sachs clutch components.  The Carfax report is clean.

2006 Audi A4 Avant (70,000 Miles)

2018 Audi S5 Sportback (11,000 Miles)

Low mileage, one-owner, clean Carfax, and Daytona Gray pearl, the only thing missing for me is a Black Optic package.  The black interior has heated/ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, carbon fiber trim, and B&O sound.  The 3.0L turbocharged V6 under the hood is factory rated at 354HP/369 lb-ft connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The only mod, if you can call it that, are tinted windows.  While the Carfax is clean, three tires have 2017 date codes.

2018 Audi A4 (41,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 05.29.2024 2:06 PM EDT

It may be ‘just’ an A4, but this Brilliant Black over black Premium Plus trim-level sedan is one of the last manuals from Audi.  The 2.0L I4, factory rated at 252HP/273 lb-ft, spins a 6-speed.  Paint protection film was applied before delivery to the first of two owners and the windows are tinted.  Factory options include Black Optics plus, Navigation and Telematics, and Sport packages.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
