Guten Tag Audi enthusiasts! Searching through the internet’s multiple car auction sites for a specific model, while fun, can take up your valuable time. So let us do some of the daily grind for you. Auction Watch monitors auction sites for Audi models worthy of your bids. Here in weekly Auction Watch, we post a short report with key data, a few pictures, and a link to the listing. Our goal is to help you find the Audi you’re looking for in time to bid on it.
Back from the IndyCar race at Road America and the IMSA race at Watkins Glen, which were great, and I’m still catching-up on everything, AKA, watching recorded races. Looks like I missed a surge in Audi auction listings while away but now I’m back in the saddle again and ready to tell you about this week’s listings. Top of the bill this week is an R8 GT #87, a Spyder variant, in a unique color. For lower price points though, there are five RS models to choose from across Audi’s range. Please check out all of the listings below and thanks for reading.
2001 Audi S8 (181,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.06.2023 1:40 PM EDT
Bids quickly, auction ends early this PM! A classic that still looks classy, this Pearlescent White over Ecru Valcona leather/tan interior limo may have some miles on it but service records dating to 2006 come with the car. The 4.2L V8 (360HP/317 lb-ft) that connects to a 5-speed Tiptronic had its timing belt last done in 2016. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2019 Audi RS 3 (2,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.06.2023 2:40 PM EDT
Bids quickly, auction ends early this PM! A low mileage, high fun-factor machine here. Finished in Glacier White metallic over a black interior with a red RS Design Select option, it’s also optioned with Technology, Dynamic, and Black Optic packages. The 2.5L I5 exhales through an AWE Tuning SwitchPath exhaust, AWE Tuning mid pipes, and secondary catalytic converter delete. It also rides on MSS Suspension adjustable coilovers. It has a clean Carfax report too.
2001 Audi TT Roadster 225 (15,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.06.2023 5:01 PM EDT
Bids quickly, auction ends late this PM! No Reserve. One owner, low mileage, and Amber Red leather seats with Baseball Optic stitching, what else needs to be said about this shiny black droptop? The turbocharged 1.8L I4, factory rated at 225HP/207 lb-ft, spins a 6-speed manual and Haldex drive. No accidents or damage are reported by Carfax.
2013 Audi RS 5 Coupe (23,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.07.2023 1:38 PM EDT
Another relatively low mileage machine here in Phantom Black pearl, tinted windows and black powder-coated OEM wheels complete the look. The contrasting interior has Lunar Silver Fine Nappa leather seats and door panels and B&O sound. The 4.2L V8, Audi rated at 450HP/317 lb-ft, mates to a 7-speed S tronic and sport diff. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder (6,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.07.2023 2:35 PM EDT
Meet R8 GT Spyder #087, 1 of 333 produced/50 for the US market. That color is Sphere Blue matte with a black soft top over black cabin with an enhanced leather package whose seats have contrasting Titanium Gray stitching. The 5.2L V10 in this lightened, track-focused edition is rated 560HP/398 lb-ft and connects to a 6-speed R tronic. And it has a clean Carfax report too.
2016 Audi A4 Allroad (137,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.07.2023 3:26 PM EDT
That’s Mythos Black metallic over a black/Chestnut Brown leather/dark walnut brown wood-trimmed interior. The unmodified drive train is a 2.0L I4 (220HP/258 lb-ft) and 8-speed Tiptronic. It may have some miles on it, but it has a healthy service history in the listing. No accidents or damage are reported by Carfax.
2006 Audi S4 (84,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.08.2023 2:42 PM EDT
No Reserve. This generation S4 is powered by a N/A 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) and it spins a 6-speed manual and all four 18″ BBS wheels. The Brilliant Black finish has a few flaws, the headliner is sagging at the rear, and Carfax lists minor damage to the rear in November 2021, but it has four new Continental ControlContact Sport SRS+ tires. Inside the black cabin are Ebony leather Recaro front bucket seats and carbon fiber trim on the dashboard, center console, and door panels.
2008 Audi RS 4 (53,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.10.2023 3:00 PM EDT
No Reserve. This car previously listed on BaT in December 2022 when it bid to $40,000 then was subsequently acquired by the new seller. No mods are reported to the OEM powertrain: a 4.2L V8 factory rated at 420HP/317 lb-ft connected to a 6-speed manual. Outside it’s Phantom Black pearl; inside you’ll find Recaro seats trimmed in black and Crimson Red Audi Exclusive Nappa leather with contrasting red piping, Crimson Red on the door cards, and carbon fiber trim. It still rides on the Dynamic Ride Control and Goodyear Eagle F1-shod 19” OEM wheels. A clean Carfax report.
2018 Audi RS 3 (31,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.10.2023 4:12 PM EDT
That color is Audi Exclusive Cumulus Blue, a cool blue for a hot ride powered by a 2.5L I5. Please see the listing for the full mod list, but the highlights are: APR Stage 2 ECU and TCU upgrades, APR intercooler, APR turbocharger inlet, APR cat-less downpipe, AWE Tuning intake, AWE Tuning Switchpath exhaust, 18” NEUSPEED RSe10 wheels, KW coilovers, and GiroDisc brakes. Carfax reports a rear-end collision in February 2021 with “functional damage reported”.
2003 Audi RS 6 (34,000 Miles)
Pcarmarket – 07.11.2023 2:30 PM EDT
Said to be one of just 37 finished in Misano Red, this fast sedan is only on its second owner and had a $3.5K+ service in October 2022. The Audi-rated 450HP/415 lb-ft comes from a twin-turbo 4.2L V8 and that power is sent to a 5-speed Tiptronic. Dynamic Ride Control should keep you comfy in the black cabin featuring Ebony leather seats, burl wood trim, and Alcantara headliner. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
1980 Audi 5000 (58,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.12.2023 2:09 PM EDT
No Reserve. This classic Audi was acquired by its current owner in 2016 who repaint it yellow and refreshed the interior to the pictured brown velour seats. Rust is coming through on the trunk lid striker, rocker panels, and right-rear quarter panel. The drivetrain is a 2.1L I5 (with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and new battery in 2022) and a 3-speed automatic. There was no Carfax report available when I accessed the listing.
2014 Audi A7 TDI (84,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.12.2023 2:26 PM EDT
A 3.0L turbodiesel V6, factory rated at 240 HP and a stump pulling 428 lb-ft of torque, moves this sportback along. The Oolong Gray metallic exterior is contrasted by a Velvet Beige interior with walnut trim. Mods are limited to window tint and a radar detector power source in the rearview mirror. There is damage on front and rear bumpers but Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
