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.
Auction Watch is back after a break to attend the Audi National meeting hosted by the Carolinas Chapter and I’d like to thank Jessica Ewing, Christopher May, and the numerous volunteers who made it an excellent event. I can’t wait for the next one! But now Auction Watch is taking another short break as I head up to the International Motor Racing Research Center in Watkins Glen, NY, to research more stories for quattro magazine issues. If you’ve never been to a race at Watkins Glen, the IMRRC, or even to the Finger Lakes region you need to put it on your bucket list.
Something you might be able to cross-off your bucket list is owning an Ur quattro or maybe an RS 4. Both of these and 13 other nice cars are worth checking out in this week’s listing below. As always, thanks for reading!

No Reserve and low mileage FL car. This one is listed as black and that’s over a gray and beige interior with leather seats, arm rests and headliner with wood trim. The 3.2L V6 (270HP/243 lb-ft) spins a 6-speed Tiptronic. Carfax reports no accidents or damage but no tire changes either so those 13 year-old tires need to go.

No Reserve. A 3.0L turbodiesel V6 rated 240HP/428 lb-ft when new (with water pump and oil cooler replaced in March 2023) drives an 8-speed Tiptronic in this Glacier White limo.

A clean Carfax report too.
2019 Audi RS 3 (30,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 09.23.2023 4:47 PM EDT
Don’t think that this Daytona Gray pearl with Alu Optics is in any way sedate.

It is powered by a 3.2L V6 (Audi rated at 255HP/243 lb-ft) that spins a 6-speed automatic. Carfax reports no accidents or damage but an indent and scrapes are visible on the left-front wheel arch and again, the engine bay needs a good cleaning.

This week’s star car! Outside it is red with a matte black upper trunk lid and Euro-spec single-chamber headlights sourced from an Audi 80.

Under the hood the turbocharged 2.1L I5 was modified by Anderson Motorsport in Minnesota with a K24 turbocharger, a Schrick 274-degree camshaft, and an Intended Acceleration ECU chip and wastegate spring. The 5-speed manual and rear diff are sourced from a 4000 quattro. For what it’s worth, the Carfax report is clean but the tires carry 2016 production date codes.
