With that recap, here are this week’s active listings.
2006 Audi TT 3.2 Special Edition Roadster (113,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 07.29.2022 1:36 PM EDT
No Reserve! The Amber Red Baseball Optic leather with contrasting black interior puts the special in this 1 of 99 Special Editions built to commemorate the 1907 Tourist Trophy race’s 99th anniversary. The 3.2L V6 (250HP/236 lb-ft) mated to a 6-speed DSG gearbox makes it fun too. It’s painted Quartz Gray Metallic with a power black top. The Carfax report states no accidents or discrepancies.
2007 Audi RS 4 (79,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.29.2022 6:19 PM EDT
A naturally-aspirated 4.2L V8, factory rated at 420HP/317 lb-ft, powers this clean looking sedan. Outside: Mugello Blue Pearl; inside: black with leather Recaro seats and carbon fiber trim. Mods include 034 Motorsport sway bars, end links, upper control arms, and lower control arms. Also StopTech front and ECS rear brake rotors and stainless brake lines. Please read listing for items needing maintenance. It has a clean Carfax report.
2004 Audi TT Roadster 225 (41,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 07.31.2022 1:45 PM EDT
Essentially a 1-owner car with low mileage. This Light Silver Metallic over 2-tone black/gray interior with (what the listing says are black but it sure looks like Aviator Gray) leather seats is finally ready for a new home. The name indicates the factory HP rating of 225 with 207 lb-ft of torque to route through a 6-speed manual gearbox to the Haldex drive. There are a few age spots, but it has a clean Carfax report.
2008 Audi S5 (141,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 08.02.2022 1:38 PM EDT
No Reserve. The naturally aspirated 4.2L V8 motivates this S5, factory rated at 354HP/325 lb-ft, and this one’s mated to a 6-speed manual. Finished in Ibis White (which has a few flaws) over a black interior, it is unmodified and Carfax reports no issues. If I didn’t already have an S5, I’d buy it, wrap it in Xpel Stealth ppf, and get a new set of rims shod with Toyo tires. Then I’d go shopping on 034Motorsport, ABT, APR, AWE, FCP Euro, and Unitronic websites for more ideas!
2015 Audi RS 7 (41,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 08.03.2022 2:10 PM EDT
One owner! This Canadian-spec Daytona Gray Pearl Effect beauty is nicely optioned with the Driver Assistance and Carbon Design packages and sports exhaust. Inside it’s black Valcona leather with carbon fiber trim and the water temp gauge and analog speedo read in metric units. The 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 (560HP/516 lb-ft) is mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic. The Carfax report is as clean as the car.
