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.
If you’re looking for something a bit different than the usual Audi offerings, how about a 1960 DKW Schnellaster Kastenwagen 3=6. It’s powered by an 896cc 3-cylinder inline 2-stroke engine, factory rated at 42HP, mated to a 4-speed ZF gearbox. One of only a handful known to exist, it has a Concours award winning restoration and a pre-auction estimated sales price of $80K-$100K. Here’s a link to the no Reserve Bonhams listing. It will be part of the Quail Auction in Monterey, CA, on August 18th.
Now onto the more typical cars seen in Auction Watch. This week there are five RS models, five S models, and an A4 Avant that are powered by four, five, six, eight, and zero cylinders. Please check them out below and, as always, thanks for reading!
2019 Audi TTS Coupe (15,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 08.10.2023 1:36 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM! Unless I’m misreading the Carfax report, this car has an in-service date on/about July 14, 2020, thus still under factory warranty. I guess the Turbo Blue over Rotor Gray wasn’t a huge hit on Audi Richmond’s lot so it DX’d to Hoffman Audi in CT. Unmodified, options include Technology, S Sport seats, and 20” wheel packages plus red calipers. The seller reports it was rear-ended while stopped in 2022 so the rear bumper was repainted as a result; and that it also needs tires.
2009 Audi S5 Coupe (112,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 08.10.2023 1:48 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM! No Reserve. This early S5 is powered by a 4.2L V8, rated at 354HP/325 lb-ft when new, and this one’s connected to a 6-speed manual enhanced with a JHM short throw shifter, a JHM R Series flywheel and clutch. The color is Brilliant Black over a black interior with contrasting Magma Red seats and door panels, aluminum trim, and B&O sound. The car’s showing its age/mileage as stated in the Known Flaws and Lemon Squad Report, but Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2003 Audi RS 6 (76,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 08.10.2023 2:44 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends mid this PM! This fast sedan is finished in Avus Silver pearl that’s over a black cabin with black-piped silver leather seats and door panels and wood trim. The 4.2L twin-turbo V8 (450HP/415 lb-ft) service includes replacing the alternator and water pump as well as the timing belt and tensioners in March 2020. It’s mated to a 5-speed Tiptronic. The car is showing its 20 years inside and out but it has a clean Carfax report.

Bring a Trailer – 08.10.2023 4:40 PM EDT
