Audi Club Auction Watch: 10.19.2023

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.

There are two of the latest, full-size Audi Sport products in this week’s Auction Watch: an RS 6 Avant and an RS Q8.  If you’re looking for something a bit more compact but just as fast, if not faster, there are two R8 coupes to choose between.  If you still want the room to haul cargo but have a budget to work within there are three more Avants that might interest you.  And it wouldn’t be a good week on Auction Watch if there wasn’t an RS 4 or S4 or even larger (think 6) fast sedan listed and this week we have all of those.  You can check out all of those listings below.  Just as I was finishing with this post, another RS 6 Avant listed on cars & bids and another RS 4 listed on Bring a Trailer.  So hit up those websites for more on them.  As always, thanks for reading!

cars & bids – 10.20.2023 1:54 PM EDT

No Reserve.  A Phantom Black pearl example of a full-size sport sedan here.  Inside the black interior you’ll find Valcona leather seats, a Cold Weather package, Carbon Atlas inlays, and Bose surround sound.  The only mods are tinted windows and OEM wheels painted black.  The twin-turbo 4.0L V8 (420HP/406 lb-ft) spins a 7-speed S tronic.  Please read the listing for the Recent Service History.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage.

2021 Audi RS Q8 (19,000 Miles)

Pcarmarket – 10.20.2023 2:30 PM EDT

Why pay for an Urus when you can have one of these?  This SUV is on The Collection Audi (Miami, FL) website and their asking price is $112,084.  It’s CPO and powered by a twin-turbo V8, Audi rated at 591HP/590 lb-ft, which connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The Glacier White metallic paint with Carbon Optic and Black Optic packages is over a black cabin featuring Cognac leather seats with Granite Gray stitching.  There are also Luxury, Executive, and Driver Assistance packages.  The Carfax report is clean.

2006 Audi S4 Avant (65,000 Kilometers)

Bring a Trailer – 10.20.2023 2:57 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Hailing from Ontario, Canada, this silver long roof rides on Bilstein dampers, 18″ BBS wheels, and has been enhanced with 034Motorsports subframe bushings.  Inside the spacious interior are Recaro front bucket seats in black leather, wood trim, and a Kenwood touchscreen stereo head unit.  Under the hood in a 4.2L V8 Audi rated at 340HP/302 lb-ft that mates to a 6-speed automatic.  The car is registered in a province that doesn’t issue titles thus is being sold on its registration.  Carfax reports moderate damage to the rear in April 2007.

2012 Audi R8 GT Coupe (12,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 10.23.2023 2:36 PM EDT

As seen in Find of the Day, this GT is #231 of 333 worldwide/50 in the US market…again.  It sold in June 2022 on cars & bids for $110,000.  The GT is 265 lbs lighter than the standard R8 thru the use of carbon fiber and aluminum.  The 5.2L V10 (560HP/398 lb-ft) connects to a 6-speed R tronic in this Phantom Black pearl over black Alcantara/leather with red stitching GT.  The only mods are XPEL Stealth paint protection film (which looks worse for wear) and tinted windows.  The Carfax report is clean but shows a 15,000 mile entry in March 2023.

2011 Audi A4 Avant (85,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 10.23.2023 2:55 PM EDT

No Reserve.  That color is Deep Sea Blue pearl and it’s over a spacious light gray interior with leather seats, wood trim, panoramic sunroof, Audi MMI navigation and B&O sound.  The drivetrain is a 2.0L I4 Audi rated at 211HP/258 lb-ft connected to an 8-speed Tiptronic.  Damage to the rear is listed in a May 2016 entry on the Carfax report and the seller notes flaws on the bumpers, tailgate, and right mirror cap.

2008 Audi RS 4 (26,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 10.23.2023 3:15 PM EDT

This fast sedan previously sold on BaT August 12, 2022, for $53,000.  The new owner replaced the aftermarket exhaust and radio with OEM, refinished the wheels, and replaced the tires and headlights.  The standard drivetrain is a 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft) and 6-speed manual.  It’s finished in Avus Silver pearl over black Silk Nappa leather Recaro front seats, carbon fiber trim and WeatherTech floor mats.  The Carfax report is clean.

2004 Audi S4 Sedan (74,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 10.24.2023 2:12 PM EDT

No Reserve.  Powered by a 4.2L V8, rated at 340HP/302 lb-ft when new, and mated to a 6-speed manual, this Light Silver metallic sedan may be a rare find—it’s unmodified with the exception of a Pioneer touchscreen head unit and tinted windows.  The black interior has silver leather Recaro seats along with wood trim; options include a Premium and Infotainment packages and a rear spoiler.  Please read the listing for the Lemon Squad report and the Known Flaws.  Carfax reports no accidents or damage but the 20 year old tires must go.

2018 Audi R8 V10 Plus (15,000 Miles)

Pcarmarket – 10.24.2023 2:00 PM EDT

Finished in Mythos Black metallic that has been recently paint corrected and ceramic coated, this coupe is a Canadian-spec car imported to the US in November 2020.  The cockpit has Express Red 18-way power Sport seats and door panels, carbon fiber trim, and an Alcantara headliner.  The 5.2L V10 (610HP/413 lb-ft) is surrounded by carbon fiber and spins a 7-speed S tronic.  Mods include 20” ADV.1 CS Series forged wheels, a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, and a red engine cross brace.  The Carfax report is clean if not just a bit confusing on the ownership trail.

2021 Audi RS 6 Avant (22,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 10.24.2023 4:01 PM EDT

This long roof previously sold on BaT in November 2022 for $120,000.  I said it looked a bit like Darth Vader given its Sebring Black pearl paint and carbon optic package.  The twin-turbo 4.0L V8, Audi rated at 591HP/590 lb-ft, connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic and exhales through an optional sport exhaust.  The seller states the engine ran Heffner Performance software under current ownership but has been reverted back to OEM.  The interior has contrasting Cognac leather seats and is well-optioned with Executive and Drivers Assistance packages and carbon twill structure inlays.  Carfax still reports no damage or accidents.

2010 Audi A5 Coupe (110,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 10.25.2023 2:48 PM EDT

No Reserve.  I hesitate to say this, but are you looking for a winter car?  This Brilliant Black over a black interior with leatherette seats, aluminum trim and a light headliner could be the ticket.  The 2.0L I4 (211HP/258 lb-ft) has a sparse service history and may be susceptible to excessive oil consumption, but it is connected to a 6-speed manual.  The body shows its age with stone chips and unrepaired damage up front, listed in the Carfax report, and in back with a dent caused by a trailer hitch.

2013 Audi S6 (51,000 Miles)

cars & bids – 10.25.2023 3:06 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This is an Ice Silver metallic sleeper.  The twin-turbo 4.0L V8 has been enhanced with an AWE Tuning S-FLO intake and charge pipes, Silly Rabbit Motorsport turbochargers, a Dyno Spectrum DS1 ECU tune, cat-less downpipes, and gone are the rear mufflers.  The interior has Moon Silver Valcona leather seats, wood trim, Bose sound, MMI Navigation Plus, and Night Vision Assistant.  It also has an illuminated check engine light; the selling dealer reports that this is due to the lack of catalytic converters.  Carfax reports no damage or accidents but a 2017 date-coded driver’s side rear tire.

2007 Audi A6 Avant (58,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 10.25.2023 3:31 PM EDT

No Reserve.  This long roof sports Thule cross bars and ski racks so it’s ready for winter sports.  Power comes from a 3.2L V6, factory rated at 255HP/243 lb-ft, spinning a 6-speed Tiptronic.  The exterior is probably Brilliant Black while in the spacious black interior are heated front and rear leather seats, Audi MMI infotainment with navigation, Bose audio, and a power tailgate.  Carfax reports no damage or accidents.
