2014 Audi S6 (26,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.20.2023 1:48 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM! No Reserve. One owner and low mileage. The 4.0L V8 (420HP/406 lb-ft) in this Brilliant Black (with Black Optic package) beauty has gas saving Cylinder-on-Demand technology and it’s mated to a 7-speed S tronic.

cars & bids – 07.20.2023 2:06 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM! This is the second time we’ve had an S7 Audi Exclusive edition (1 of 50, Black/Crimson Red Valcona leather interior, contrast stitching, Crimson Red seat belts, black floor mats with Crimson Red leather piping) on Auction Watch. The exterior is stately Daytona Gray pearl, with the Black Optic package, and it wears paint protection film on hood, rear bumper, and rocker panels. A 4.0L twin-turbo V8, Audi rated at 450HP/406 lb-ft, connects to a 7-speed S tronic, and benefits from a Sport exhaust and Sport diff too. A clean Carfax report as well.
2015 Audi RS 5 Coupe (48,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.20.2023 2:45 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends today mid-PM! This shade of black is Mythos Black metallic and with the Black Optic package and tinted windows it has a mean look. The cabin is also black with leather/Alcantara seats, Technology, and Driver Assistance packages, and B&O sound. The 4.2L V8 is factory rated at 450HP/317 lb-ft and spins a 7-speed S tronic and standard Sport diff. Carfax reports minor damage to the front in December 2022 resulting in front bumper and fascia replacement.
2015 Audi Q7 TDI (80,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.20.2023 2:58 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends today mid-PM! No Reserve. I’m guessing this shade of black on an S-Line model is Brilliant Black and it’s over a black, Prestige trim level interior with the Luxury package (Alcantara headliner and extended leather upholstery). The 3.0L turbodiesel V6 (240HP/406 lb-ft) is mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic. The TDI recall was completed in December 2017. Carfax reports minor damage to the right rear and side in September 2015 and minor damage in June 2021 with no further detail.
1999 Audi A4 Avant (49,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.20.2023 3:36 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends today mid-PM! No Reserve. One owner and, wow, that color is Tropical Green metallic. The roomy interior is listed on the window sticker as Ecru/Onyx Ambition, the seats are perforated leatherette. Options include an All Weather Package, leather-wrapped Sport steering wheel, and Power Glass Sunroof. The turbocharged 1.8L I4 is enhanced by an APR intake and Borla exhaust and it mates to a 5-speed manual. It rides on 17-inch BBS wheels. Carfax reports very minor damage to the right rear in December 2004.
2012 Audi A4 Avant (138,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.21.2023 1:55 PM EDT
No Reserve. Fast-forward 13 years to another generation of luxury grocery getter, this one in Phantom Black S line exterior with creative badging. Inside the black interior you’ll find leather seats, brushed aluminum trim, and WeatherTech floor mats. The drivetrain: a 2.0L I4 (211HP/258 lb-ft) coupled to an 8-speed Tiptronic. Mods include an aFe POWER Momentum cold air intake, Porsche Macan-sourced 18” wheels, coilovers, and Akrapovič carbon fiber exhaust tips. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2021 Audi S7 (26,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.21.2023 3:30 PM EDT
That’s a wrap…Frozen Gray vinyl wrap that is, and it covers Audi’s Firmament Blue metallic paint job. The pictures show both colors. It’s optioned with the Prestige, S Sport, and Black Optic packages; the black interior has diamond-stitched Valcona leather seats. Motivation is courtesy of a 2.9L twin-turbo V6 (444HP/443 lb-ft) and an 8-speed Tiptronic. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2013 Audi S4 (131,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.21.2023 4:05 PM EDT
No Reserve. The supercharged 3.0L V6 now inhales through an aftermarket intake and exhales sans front resonators and sends the enhanced power to a 7-speed S tronic and optional sport diff. Other mods are cosmetic and the 19” Neuspeed bronze wheels. Please see the listing for an extensive service history. Monsoon Gray metallic covers the outside, the Prestige black interior has Nappa leather seats. Carfax reports minor damage to the front-left in June 2019.
2002 Audi TT Roadster 225 (99,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.21.2023 4:55 PM EDT
No Reserve. We haven’t seen this Desert Green pearl with green soft top over Desert Grass leather combo in a while on Auction Watch, the pictures don’t do it justice. The turbocharged 1.8L I4 (225HP/207 lb-ft) is linked to a 6-speed manual, the clutch hydraulic cylinders were replaced in 2023 along with some suspension components. Flaws include: the button for the hazard lights is stuck, display pixels are out, the glovebox will not open, and Carfax reports damage to the front in April 2023 with no details.
2002 Audi S6 Avant (222,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.21.2023 4:15 PM EDT
No Reserve. I hesitated listing this one given the mileage and the seller’s comment, “a little bit of an [engine tick]” when the engine is cold (shown in the video). So please do your due diligence if you’re interested in bidding. The car show’s it age/mileage but we’ve all seen worse. That color is Amulet Red over a black/silver leather interior. The 4.2L V8 runs a Stuklr tune and mates with a 6-speed manual now. Please read the listing for the other mods. A clean Carfax too.
2008 Audi S4 Avant (124,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.24.2023 2:02 PM EDT
No Reserve. A good daily? The Phantom Black pearl appears to reflect the mileage, it’s over black interior with Silk Nappa Recaro leather front seats, walnut interior trim, WeatherTech floor mats, factory CD/Bose audio, and a headliner that looks to be just starting to sag around the front dome light. The N/A 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) spins a 6-speed Tiptronic. A spare set of wheels comes with the sale. Carfax reports minor damage to the rear in April 2015.
2015 Audi A7 TDI (104,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.24.2023 3:42 PM EDT
This shade of black is Havana Black metallic and it’s over a roomy black interior featuring leather seats, a Cold Weather Package, and wood trim. The drivetrain is a 3.0L turbodiesel V6, (240HP/428 lb-ft) and an 8-speed Tiptronic. Carfax reports minor damage to the front, right side, and right front in March 2020, and also notes the car was reported stolen and recovered the next day in April 2017.
2013 Audi TT RS (5,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.24.2023 4:50 PM EDT
One owner, low mileage and Misano Red pearl…I’ll take it! Inside the black driver-focused cabin are leather seats and a Tech Package (navigation, Bose, interior LEDs, and adaptive headlights). It’s powered by a turbocharged 2.5L I5, Audi rated at 360HP/343 lb-ft, linked to a 6-speed manual, and exhales through an optional Sport exhaust. Of course the Carfax report is clean.
2003 Audi RS 6 (53,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.24.2023 5:06 PM EDT
This fast sedan is motivated by a twin-turbo 4.2L V8, rated at 450HP/415 lb-ft when new, that’s mated to a 5-speed Tiptronic. The chassis rides on Dynamic Ride Control and a sport suspension. Outside it’s Avus Silver pearl, the interior is black with Ebony leather seats, carbon fiber trim, and a broken center armrest storage handle. Carfax reports moderate damage involving a front or side impact in June 2009 but no further details.
2017 Audi RS 3 (11,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.25.2023 1:31 PM EDT
One owner. The newest generation 2.5L I5, now factory rated at 400HP/354 lb-ft and mated to a 7-speed S tronic, powers this pocket rocket. Catalunya Red with matte Alu-optic accents are over a black cabin with Fine Nappa leather seats with diamond-pattern Rock Gray contrasting stitching, Technology package, and RS carbon inlays. A Dynamic package is also optioned and the Carfax report is clean.
2015 Audi RS 7 (78,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.25.2023 2:30 PM EDT
Attention Eastern Canada chapter members, this one’s in your area. A lot of Misano Red pearl (with Carbon Optics) covers this Canadian-spec sportback. Under that is a large black cabin with Driver Assistance packages, Valcona leather, WeatherTech floor mats and carbon finer trim. Mods include an electronic suspension lowering system, tinted windows, tinted front bumper reflectors, and paint protection film. A 4.0L twin-turbo V8 (560HP/516 lb-ft) and an 8-speed Tiptronic propel this beauty. A clean Carfax too.
2012 Audi S5 Coupe (33,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.25.2023 3:32 PM EDT
A 4.2L V8, factory rated at 354HP/325 lb-ft, connected to a 6-speed manual is this coupe’s drivetrain. I’d guess that’s Ibis White over a black interior with Nappa leather seats, brushed aluminum trim, and a CarNaviPlayer infotainment unit integrated with the Audi MMI Navigation system. Please read the listing for the service history details. Carfax reports minor damage to the front in March 2013.
2020 Audi e-tron Sportback (14,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.26.2023 2:24 PM EDT
This is 1 of 200 Edition One models. It’s finished in Plasma Blue metallic and has orange calipers. Prestige level trim means the black interior is well-appointed, this one has Monaco Gray leather seats. Dual motors add up to 355HP/414 lb-ft, 402HP/490 lb-ft with Boost Mode. Please read to Lemon Squad inspection report; it has a clean Carfax report.
2018 Audi RS 5 Coupe (33,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 07.26.2023 2:36 PM EDT
The launch color, Sonoma Green metallic with Black Optic package, is over a black interior with Fine Nappa Leather and Navigation packages and B&O 3D sound. The 2.9L twin-turbo V6 (444HP/443 lb-ft) connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic and it has a Dynamic package and Dynamic steering as well. Sale includes 19” Drag wheels with winter tires and an OxGord outdoor car cover. The Carfax report is clean.
2008 Audi A4 Avant (61,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.26.2023 3:31 PM EDT
The turbocharged 2.0L I4 is Audi rated at 200HP/207 lb-ft and this one spins a 6-speed manual. That great color is Ocean Blue pearl, it has an S-Line grille and an aluminum-trimmed black interior with leather seats. There’s some corrosion here and there no doubt from driving in CT and WI. Carfax reports an accident reported with rear-end damage in January 2010.
