Audi Club Auction Watch: 08.31.2023

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’ve got the blues because summer is coming to an end, maybe a Denim Blue TT Coupe will cheer you up.  Need more horsepower?  Following last week’s pair of inline-fives, there’s another classic 5-pot in this week’s listings.  A significantly modified 1983 quattro that still could use some work could be yours.  If you’re looking for something a bit larger but still in go-fast mode there’s an A6 Avant that’s been “breathed on” as we used to say in my younger days.  There are three additional classic Avants as well as a pair of low-mileage R8 again this week.  Please check out all 18 listings below and, as always, thanks for reading!
