Audi Club Auction Watch: 11.02.2023

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.

In this week’s listing there are four long roofs to choose from, highlighted by the Noggy Blue one below and a classic 5000 S Avant.  And while it’s not exactly convertible shopping season, two TT Roadsters are available to bid on.  And it wouldn’t be a normal week unless there was at least one R8, one RS 4, and multiple generations of S4s.  In total, there are 19 listing so please check them all out below, and as always, thanks for reading!
