Audi enthusiasts: do you spend countless hours searching on-line for your favorite car or cars? If so, we’re here to help! To save you time, in this Auction Watch series we’re monitoring numerous auction sites for Ingolstadt’s finest up for auction. Interesting finds will be posted weekly, and hopefully, you’ll be alerted in time to bid on your dream car.
There are a couple of interesting overseas imports in this week’s listings for your viewing pleasure. First, and as one would expect, a right-hand drive Cabriolet from the UK. Second, a left-hand drive RS 4 Avant from Japan. Funny, I would have expected both of them to be right-hand drive since they drive on the ‘wrong side of the road’ in Japan. Anyways, see them, and the rest of this week’s listing below.
2015 Audi A8 L TDI (53,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 09.22.2022 4:15 PM EDT
Listing ends today! No Reserve. A Phantom Black pearl over black leather with wood trimmed interior example of Audi’s flagship. The 3.0L turbodiesel V6 (240HP/428 lb-ft) powers the quattro drive through an 8-speed Tiptronic. It has 22-way power-adjustable heated and ventilated massaging front seats to keep you comfy! Carfax reports no issues.
2007 Audi RS 4 (103,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 09.23.2022 5:42 PM EDT
As you might suspect from the stance, courtesy of KW V3 coilovers and 19″ Rotiform BLQ wheels, this super sedan is no longer fully OEM. The 4.2L V8 breathes in through a GruppeM intake, runs an APR Stage 1 ECU tune and downpipe, and exhales into a Milltek exhaust. The 6-speed manual wears a JHM Stage 3 clutch. Carfax reports minor accident damage in November 2020.
1995 Audi Cabriolet (117,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 09.25.2022 2:55 PM EDT
No Reserve. I say old chap, feel like experiencing right-hand drive? An English import to the US in 2020, this Kingfisher Blue over blue upholstery is motivated by a 2.6L V6 paired with a 5-speed manual and rolls on 17″ replica BBS wheels and MTS Technik suspension lowering kit. The black soft top is manually-retracted. There isn’t much of a Carfax report but it does list accident damage in June 2021.
2000 Audi TT Coupe 180 (42,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 09.25.2022 5:22 PM EDT
No Reserve. Two long-term owners! As the name implies, the turbocharged 1.8L made 180HP/173 lb-ft when new. This one’s painted Lake Silver Metallic over a black interior. Work done in July 2022 includes replacing the timing belt, spark plugs, oil change, and air conditioning repair. It does have a common flaw, some display pixels have died; but also, a clean Carfax report.
2001 Audi RS 4 Avant (151,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 09.26.2022 1:30 PM EDT
You know you want to bid on this one, a left-hand-drive, Japanese-spec Avant imported into the States from Japan in May 2022. Finished in legendary Nogaro Blue with an Onyx interior, it has an enhanced 2.7L twin-turbocharged V6 mated to a 6-speed manual. Please read the listing for the list of mods, recent service, and the comments section for info on the completed import documentation process. It shows a bit of age…but that will give you something to work on.
2013 Audi S6 (74,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 09.26.2022 3:54 PM EDT
A twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8, factory rated at 420HP/406 lb-ft mates to a 7-speed s-tronic in this Phantom Black example. Mods are limited to a DC Sports exhaust and tinted windows. From the pictures I’d say it needs a good detailing. Carfax reports an accident in August 2014 that resulted in less than $1,000 damage to its left side.
2012 Audi S4 (64,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 09.27.2022 2:18 PM EDT
The wonderful 3.0L supercharged V6, factory rated at 333HP/325 lb-ft connects to a 6-speed manual with the optional Sports Diff in this Prestige level sedan. That’s Ibis White over a black leather/Alcantara interior with Carbon Atlas trim. It also sports the Titanium Package, tinted windows, and a Whispbar roof rack with RockyMounts orange bike mounts. Carfax reports no accidents; however, owners 1 (rear-end) and 2 (see photos) disclosed accidents.
2022 Audi RS 5 Coupe (211 Kilometers)
Collecting Cars – 09.27.2022 6:10 PM EDT
Practically new St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada resident! Mythos Black with the Black Optic Package and black interior with contrasting honeycomb-stitched seats, and carbon-fiber trim, it’s powered by the 2.9L twin-turbo V-6 putting out 444HP/443 lb-ft. That energy runs through an 8-speed Tiptronic and quattro drive to the 20” 5-spoke alloy wheels. There’s no Carfax report but the seller is unaware of any issues.
2013 Audi TT RS (60,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 09.28.2022 2:34 PM EDT
If this Samoa Orange over black with unique trim looks familiar it’s because it sold on Bring a Trailer in February 2022 for $38,250. Looks like nothing was added since that listing, it still has an Airtec intercooler and 19” Neuspeed RSe10 wheels that enclose Girodisc discs and Carbotech brake pads. All Mark II TT RS came equipped with a 6-speed manual to handle the 2.5L I5’s factory rated output of 360HP/343 lb-ft. The Carfax report is clean.
2018 Audi S3 (27,000 Miles)
Cars & Bids – 09.28.2022 2:50 PM EDT
Wow, the Audi Exclusive Porsche Green exterior (1 of 4 built in ’18) over a black interior really pops. Well optioned with the S Sport, Black Optic Dynamic, S Sport Seat, and Tech Value packages. Mods include a CTS Turbo cat-back exhaust and intercooler, an Integrated Engineering cold air intake and turbo inlet pipe, H&R Super Sport lowering springs, and a Superpro USA sway bar and end links. The breathing mods should help the 2.0L turbocharged I4 exceed the factory numbers of 292HP/280 lb-ft. Carfax reports a sideswipe collision in December 2019 that resulted in damage to the left-rear, see listing for more details.
2003 Audi RS 6 (123,000 Miles)
Shiftgate – 09.29.2022 4:14 PM EDT
Plenty of time to think about bidding on another Canadian resident, this one’s finished in Ebony Pearl over a black interior featuring Recaro leather seats and carbon fiber trim. Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 4.2L V8 (450HP/415 lb-ft) which sends its power to a 5-speed Tiptronic. Please see the listing’s comments for a link to the clean Carfax report and transmission torque converter discussion.
