Words: Steve Johnson
Greetings fellow Audi enthusiasts! Do you find yourself searching through the internet’s multiple car auction sites looking for a specific model? While it can be fun, it does consume valuable time. So let us do some of the work for you. Auction Watch monitors online auction sites for Audi models worthy of your bids. Each Thursday we post those listings calling out a car’s highlights, and include 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 a high-end sports, exotic, or luxury car (with a minimum price $100,000) RM Sotheby’s launched a new online auction site to handle these u࣫ber expensive cars for those who seek a luxury online buying experience. Here’s the Sotheby’s motorsport link. No Audi are currently listed but a 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider with no Reserve is available to bid on.
Back down to Earth price-wise now, this week’s listings are highlighted by a Mark II TT Coupe with only 1,200 miles on the clock and equipped with the Competition Package for a great look. There’s also a couple of low-mileage R8 Spyders, a very nice Mark II TTS, four RS models, a droptop S5, and more. Please check them all out below and, as always, thanks for reading!
2007 Audi RS 4 (27,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 08.17.2023 1:22 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM! A low mileage fast sedan in Daytona Gray pearl over a black cabin with Nappa leather Recaro seats with silver piping, carbon fiber trim, Audi Navigation Plus, and Bluetooth phone connectivity. The N/A 4.2L V8, Audi rated at 420HP/317 lb-ft, had a carbon-cleaning service and its intake manifold gaskets and coolant expansion tank replaced in July 2022. As with all RS 4, the gearbox is a 6-speed manual. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2013 Audi TT Coupe (1,200 Miles)
cars & bids – 08.17.2023 3:25 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends mid PM! I see a collectable car here: one-owner, super low mileage, and the original tires too. The color is Daytona Gray pearl. It’s over a black interior with Nappa power-adjustable sport seats and Bose surround sound. The S Line Competition Package adds gloss black front lower spoiler splitter, exterior side mirror housings, fixed rear spoiler, black diffuser, and black exhaust tips. The only mod is tinted windows. Drivetrain is a 2.0L turbocharged I4 Audi rated at 211HP/258 lb-feet that spins a 6-speed S tronic. The Carfax report is clean.
2002 Audi TT Roadster 225 (127,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 08.17.2023 4:46 PM EDT
Bid quickly, auction ends late this PM! No Reserve. The turbocharged 1.8L I4 (225HP/207 lb-ft) under the hood had its timing belt replaced at 90k miles in 2010. The 6-speed manual had its clutch and one of the hydraulic cylinders replaced at 115k miles. The current shade of silver is a 2019 respray and the black top’s rear window was resealed in 2022. It rolls on 18” Rial wheels but the removed factory wheels (and OEM headlights) are included in the sale. Carfax reports the front sustained very minor damage in July 2013.
2005 Audi S4 Avant (107,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 08.21.2023 1:27 PM EDT
No Reserve. A Brilliant Black over black long roof whose exterior shows its time in Wisconsin with some rust but the black interior with Ebony Silk Nappa leather Recaro seats and carbon fiber trim still looks tidy with the exception of a sagging headliner in the cargo area. The 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft when new) had its drive belt, idler pulley, and tensioner replaced in 2019. It mates to a 6-speed manual. On the dash an adaptive headlight warning message is displayed and a headlamp out fault appears intermittently. The seller notes that the adaptive headlights no longer turn with the wheels. Carfax reports no accidents or damage but you might want to ask about the front hood gap and what looks like a dent or unusual wear in front of the engine where the hood closes.
2013 Audi RS 5 Coupe (102,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 08.21.2023 2:05 PM EDT
This shade of black is Panther Black Crystal Effect and it’s complimented by black Audi rings and tinted windows. The black interior has Titanium and Audi MMI Navigation Plus packages, fine Nappa leather/Alcantara seats, carbon fiber trim, and Bang & Olufsen sound. The N/A 4.2L V8, Audi rated at 450HP/317 lb-ft, exhales through a Capristo valved exhaust and connects to a 7-speed S tronic. The seller states it had a paint correction, a ding on the rear quarter panel was fixed, and the hood was repainted in June 2023. Carfax reports minor damage to the front in June 2019 and a Condition Now inspection report lists that damage as very minor.
2011 Audi TTS Coupe (28,000 Miles)
Pcarmarket – 08.21.2023 2:15 PM EDT
A Mark II TTS in Ice Silver metallic with low mileage. Drivetrain: a turbocharged I4 Audi rated at 265HP/258 lb-ft mated to a 6-speed S tronic and Haldex all-wheel drive system. The interior has dual-tone black and silver leather seats and door trim (part of the Prestige Package), brushed aluminum inlays, CD changer and Bose sound. The clean Carfax report shows two owners and a good service history.
2018 Audi RS 3 (41,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 08.21.2023 3:20 PM EDT
The 2.5L turbocharged I5, factory rated at 400HP/354 lb-ft, spins a 7-speed S tronic and highlights this car. The paint color is Daytona Gray pearl and its front bumper, hood, A-pillars, side mirrors, and door handles are covered with paint protection film. Options include Dynamic, Black Optic, and Technology packages, and RS carbon decorative inlays. The black interior has Nappa leather seats with contrasting Crescendo Red stitching throughout. The chassis now rides on APR lowering springs. The Carfax report is clean.
2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet (64,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 08.21.2023 3:55 PM EDT
This time the black shade is Mythos Black metallic and that’s paired with a black soft top and cabin featuring Rotor Gray Fine Nappa leather seats and Carbon Atlas inlay. A Prestige trim level car, options include S Sport and Driver Assistance packages, Dynamic steering, and 19” wheels. This gen S5 is powered by a turbocharged 3.0L V6 (354HP/369 lb-ft) that connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic. It’s covered by an Xtended Auto service contract until April 7, 2025/100,000 miles that is transferrable to the next owner. Carfax reports minor damage and functional damage to the front in November 2019 and the selling dealer notes that the driver’s side rear quarter panel was repainted.
2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder (4,900 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 08.21.2023 5:36 PM EDT
When we saw this car in Auction Watch last May I asked the winning bidder to promise to drive it. It didn’t work. Only 400 more miles are on the clock now and the 5.2L V10 packing 525HP/391 lb-ft and 6-speed R tronic are begging to be driven. It’s Brilliant Red with a black soft top and Luxor Beige interior. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2003 Audi RS 6 (98,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 08.22.2023 1:42 PM EDT
This sedan is Avus Silver pearl over an Ebony interior with a Warm Weather Package, leather seats, carbon fiber trim, and Bose sound. The 4.2L twin-turbo V8 (rated 450HP/415 lb-ft when new) spins a 5-speed automatic gearbox. Mods are Wagner Tuning intercoolers, muffler delete, Koni shocks, Hotchkis sway bars, and tinted windows. There are some flaws so please read the listing, Lemon Squad inspection report, and look at the pictures carefully. There is a clean Carfax report though.
2012 Audi R8 V10 Spyder (25,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 08.23.2023 1:30 PM EDT
Another Brilliant Red V10 Spyder, this one has a lowered suspension, 20” HRE wheels, a black rear wing and tinted windows to set it apart. It shares the same drivetrain as the R8 listed above. Inside the black interior you’ll find leather sport seats with contrasting red stitching, piano black trim, and an aftermarket head unit. The Carfax report is accident/damage-free and lists seven previous owners. A Lemon Squad inspection report flags the tires as about due for replacement.
2006 Audi A8 L (69,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 08.23.2023 5:01 PM EDT
No Reserve. Audi’s flagship, the A8 log wheelbase version, and this one’s powered by a 6.0L W12 rated 450HP/428 lb-ft when new. The exterior is black, the interior is contrasting and eye-popping Amaretto Valcona leather and Alcantara on the seats and door panel and headliner, respectively. Burl wood trim, quad-zone automatic climate control, Bose audio, DVD-based navigation, and Audi’s MMI infotainment with a retractable 7″ screen, a rear-seat entertainment system are also inside. Carfax reports minor damage to the front in January 2017.
2009 Audi R8 V8 Coupe (31,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 08.23.2023 3:51 PM EDT

The front bumper, part of the hood, and mirrors are covered with paint protection film. The 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft) now exhales through a STaSIS Motorsports exhaust and spins the desirable 6-speed manual. A clean Carfax too.
