Audi Club Auction Watch: 09.07.2023

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.

Following last week’s Denim Blue TT Coupe there are a couple of special edition TTs this week: a 1 of 99 Special Edition roadster and a 1 of 1,000 ALMS coupe.  There’s also another classic 5-pot, a 200 Turbo that needs some TLC.  And wouldn’t you know it, there’s yet another low-mileage 2012 R8 V10 Spyder.

Auction Watch will be taking a two-week break as I’ll be busy with an event in my P-car club chapter and then the BIG event, going to the Audi National in North Carolina.  So enjoy checking out all the listings below, thanks for reading and I hope to see you in NC!

2012 Audi R8 V10 Spyder (8,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 09.07.2023 1:38 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM!  Tell me why, tell me why…why no one seems to have driven their 2012 R8 Spyders.  This droptop is Phantom Black pearl with a black soft top and a black interior.  Options include an Enhanced Leather package and contrasting Crimson Red stitching, white instrument faces, and $4,950 worth of carbon fiber sigma inside and out.  The 5.2L V10, Audi rated at 525HP/391 lb-ft, spins a 6-speed R tronic.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2013 Audi TT RS (37,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 09.07.2023 3:10 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends mid this PM!  The top line of this listing says heavily modified, that’s for sure.  Mod highlights for this Suzuka Gray over black pocket rocket include a TTE Global 500 turbo upgrade, SNOW Performance Stage 2 two-port water/methanol injection, APR intercooler, APR Stage 2+ ECU software, APR high-performance fuel pump, APR downpipe, and an APR full exhaust.  Please read the listing for the details on the many other mods.  It has a clean Carfax report too.

2015 Audi A7 (104,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 09.07.2023 3:35 PM EDT

Bid quickly, auction ends mid this PM!  No Reserve.  Another modified car here but the 3.0L supercharged V6 is only elevated to Stage 1.  Under that Quartz Gray metallic paint lies 034Motorsport Stage 1 ECU and TCU software, 034Motorsport air intake, 034Motorsport rear sway bar, and more; please read the listing for the details.  The Prestige level trim adds nice features to the black interior that also has a Cold Weather package.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage and there’s a Lemon Squad inspection report as well.

2004 Audi S4 (149,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 09.08.2023 1:50 PM EDT

No Reserve.  You could be the 10th owner if you dare to win the bid.  Powered by a N/A 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) that now runs a Jackal Motorsports ECU tune and wears an AWE cat-back exhaust, the timing chain and guides were reportedly done by a previous owner.  Please read the Recent Service History and comments for details and other work.  Light Silver metallic covers the exterior while Premium and Infotainment packages can be found inside the Ebony interior.  There are Known Flaws listed but the Carfax report is clean.

1990 Audi 200 Turbo (156,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 09.08.2023 2:16 PM EDT

This sedan needs a lot of TLC to make it pretty again.  Luckily you’d start with Tornado Red over a tan interior whose driver’s seat looks worse for wear and the radio and right-rear window don’t work.  Under the hood the turbocharged 10-valve 2.2L I5 was rated 162HP/177 lb-ft when new, it has new injectors, and mates to a 5-speed manual.  Please read the listing and look at every picture if you’re considering bidding.  Carfax reports an accident in April 2006 and an October 1997 entry shows a manufacturer safety recall issued regarding an airbag sensor module.

2006 Audi TT Roadster 3.2 (138,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 09.08.2023 2:50 PM EDT

No Reserve.  1 of 99 Special Edition roadsters for 2006, as indicated on the glovebox trim, it was available exclusively in Quartz Gray metallic with a Baseball Optic leather interior to commemorate the 99th anniversary of the 1907 Tourist Trophy race on the Isle of Man.  Powered by the VR6, 3.2L V6 Audi rated at 250HP/236 lb-ft, it’s equipped with a 6-speed DSG.  Please read the Known Flaws and Recent Service History in the listing; Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2021 Audi e-tron Sportback (25,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 09.08.2023 3:35 PM EDT

I really like Daytona Gray pearl with a Black Optic Package like we see here.  That’s over a black interior with Volcano Gray ash wood trim, heated/ventilated/massaging leather front seats, heated rear seats, and 3D B&O sound.  It is dual motor equipped, has a 95 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery (355HP/414 lb-ft or 402HP/490 lb-ft with boost) yielding an EPA rating of 218-mile range.  It has a clean Carfax.

2001 Audi TT Coupe 225 (48,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 09.09.2023 3:51 PM EDT

True to its name, the turbocharged 1.8L I4 is factory rated at 225HP/207 lb-ft and spins a 6-speed manual.  The color is Lake Silver metallic and that’s over a black cabin with leather seats, a color-coordinated dashboard, and brushed aluminum trim.  The digital odometer shows 48k miles but the clean Carfax report shows an odometer reading of ~98k miles in a July 2023 entry.  Check the listing’s comments section for possible explanation.

2013 Audi A4 Allroad (96,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 09.11.2023 3:06 PM EDT

No Reserve.  A very dark shade, of Moonlight Blue metallic covers this long roof but the beige leather seats and headliner/panoramic sunroof brightens things up inside.  The engine is a 2.0L turbocharged I4 (211HP/258 lb-ft) and the transmission is an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The seller states the driver’s side CV joint may need replacing soon, the sunroof tray and drain tubes may need cleaning soon, and the driver’s side front speaker may need replacing.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage but there’s an open recall on the coolant pump.

2002 Audi TT Coupe ALMS Edition (107,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 09.11.2023 4:57 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Another Avus Silver pearl ALMS Commemorative Edition coupe.  1 of 500 in this color, and of 1,000 in total built to pay tribute to Audi’s American Le Mans Series successes in 2000 and 2001.  All came equipped with Brilliant Red leather seats, steering wheel, door panels, shift knob and power trim.  They’re powered by a 1.8L turbocharged I4 (225HP/207 lb-ft) paired with a 6-speed manual.  Carfax reports minor damage to the rear in December 2014 but no further details; the car shows its age/mileage inside and out.

2008 Audi S4 (77,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 09.13.2023 1:45 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Original owner!  The bold color is Sprint Blue pearl and that’s on an Exterior Sport Package and is over a black interior featuring Silk Nappa leather seats, Convenience and power rear/manual side sun shade packages.  The 340HP/302 lb-ft rated 4.2L V8 wears a Milltek Sport cat-back exhaust and spins a 6-speed manual.  Carfax reports a February 2010 accident with another motor vehicle causing damage on the left and left-front side, and an April 2020 entry lists minor damage to the front.

2007 Audi A8 L (65,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 09.13.2023 2:08 PM EDT

Another very dark blue shade, this time Night Blue pearl, graces this flagship.  That color is over a spacious interior with heated/ventilated/massaging front seats in Amaretto leather with color-coordinated headliner and door panel inserts plus wood trim.  A 4.2L V8 (350HP/325 lb-ft) connects to a 6-speed Tiptronic.  Carfax reports a sideswipe collision in September 2010 resulting in very minor damage to the right rear.

2014 Audi S4 (4,200 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 09.13.2023 3:13 PM EDT

That’s no mileage typo, but it is another ‘Tell me why’ car.  Why buy such a nice Ibis White sedan with a Black Optic package over black interior with leather/Alcantara seats, modify it, and then not drive it.  Those mods include a Revo Technik ECU tune, AWE Tuning intake, ECS Tuning stainless exhaust, 034Motorsport subframe reinforcement connector, H&R lowering springs, ECS Tuning brake rotors with ceramic brake pads, carbon fiber front splitter, rear diffuser, and spoiler, and Gold-finished 20″ Vossen alloy wheels.  Naturally the Carfax report is clean.  (Please forgive the typo in the photo captions, this is a 2014 model year S4.)
