Bring a Trailer – 07.15.2022 4:25 PM EDT
Outside it’s Avus Silver Pearl Effect, inside it’s black with leather Recaro seats and carbon fiber trim. Under the hood the 4.2L V8 is enhanced with a GIAC Stage 1 Plus ECU tune and Milltek exhaust. The suspension now includes KW V1 coilovers and Hotchkis sway bars. An ECS transmission mount was installed and the clutch and its master cylinder were replaced in 2021.

2012 Audi S4 (109,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 07.18.2022 3:06 PM EDT
A one owner, Prestige level B8 gen S4! The 333HP/325 lb-ft supercharged V-6 is mated to a 6-speed manual and it’s still as delivered/unmodified. Ice Silver Metallic over black/Magma Red Silk Nappa leather with B&O sound, the Prestige package adds a host of goodies. Carfax reports it was in a rear-end collision in August 2019 resulting in “minor to moderate damage” to the front and rear but no airbag deployment.
2007 Audi RS 4 (107,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 07.19.2022 1:30 PM EDT
The second Sprint Blue Pearl we’ve seen in Auction Watch, this one has a black interior with Recaro leather seats and carbon fiber trim. It also has a GruppeM carbon fiber intake and Milltek Sport exhaust to help the 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft) breathe better and, of course, the 6-speed manual. Carfax reports it’s been roughed up three times, a mechanic’s inspection of the left rear might be a good idea.
2007 Audi S8 (77,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 07.20.2022 2:34 PM EDT
Sportier than the Transporter’s D2 S8, this one has the 5.2L V10 factory rated at 450HP/308 lb-ft driving a 6-speed automatic. This example is finished in Phantom Black Pearl over an extended black leather package with carbon fiber trim. Please see the listing for the Recent Service History. It’s showing its 15 years with a few flaws but Carfax reports no accidents or discrepancies.
2013 Audi A7 (59,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 07.20.2022 3:06 PM EDT
An interesting color combo: Nougat Brown interior over Havana Black Metallic with red striping. Even more interesting are the mods, please check out the listing for the long list. The supercharged 3.0L V6 should now make considerably more power and the suspension is updated to match. The Carfax indicates three accidents with minor damage and left front RTX Black Widow wheel is bent.
