Greetings Audi enthusiasts! It’s almost Thanksgiving, we hope you have your holiday meal plans made by now. You can save yourself some time by letting us search the internet’s multiple car auction sites for Audi models worth bidding on. Auction Watch monitors online auction sites for Audi models of all types in the hopes you’re looking for one of them to be your next car. 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 that special Audi you’re looking for in time to bid on it.
This week there are more than the usual dose of RS 4s, we have one very special example that came to the US from Brazil—an RS 4 Avant. There are two more RS 4s to choose from and an S4 Avant if you desire a less rare Avant to be your daily driver. It must be S4 week as there are five sedan listings. Finally, there’s four V10-powered rides and not all of them are R8s. Intrigued? Please check them out along with the other listings below. As always, thanks for reading!
2008 Audi R8 Coupe (26,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 11.16.2023 1:25 PM EST
Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM! As seen in Find of the Day, this first North American model year R8 is finished in Phantom Black pearl (wearing paint protecting film on the front trunk, bumper, and fenders, and lower rear fenders) with carbon fiber Sigma side blades. The black interior has leather seats, dashboard and door panels plus Audi Parking System Plus with a rearview camera, WeatherTech floor mats, and B&O sound. This model year only came in a 4.2L V8 (420HP/317 lb-ft), this one has an aftermarket titanium exhaust and mates to a 6-speed R-tronic. The Carfax report is clean but an inspection document notes the rear struts need to be replaced.
2001 Audi RS 4 Avant (34,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 11.16.2023 1:30 PM EST
Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM! This sporty long roof came from Germany via Brazil in February 2021 and was federalized in May 2023. This is Brilliant Black over an Onyx interior featuring Recaro leather seats, carbon fiber trim, a cassette player and a rear-mounted 6-disc CD changer to send music to the Bose speakers. Power comes from a 2.7L twin-turbo V6, Audi rated at 375HP/325 lb-ft that spins a 6-speed manual. The selling dealer notes that various interior pieces are loose. Please read the listing’s Recent Service History and very short Carfax report for maintenance done.
2007 Audi RS 4 (133,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 11.16.2023 2:01 PM EST
Bid quickly, auction ends early this PM! No Reserve. This is another well-traveled car, I suspect an Army veteran originally owned it. It’s Phantom Black pearl outside and black inside with black-piped Silver Nappa leather seats, brushed aluminum trim, a Premium package, and Bose sound. The 4.2L V8, rated 420HP/317 lb-ft when new, had carbon cleaning, intake manifold and fuel injectors replaced in October 2023. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2013 Audi S4 (129,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 11.16.2023 4:18 PM EST
Bid quickly, auction ends late this PM! The drivetrain is a 3.0L supercharged V6 (333HP/325 lb-ft) and a 6-speed manual. The shade of blue is Estoril and it’s over a black cabin with black/Magma Red Nappa leather seats, Audi MMI Navigation Plus Package, and B&O sound. The only mod is tinted windows. Please read the listing’s Recent Service History to see how the last owner was fanatical about changing the oil. The Carfax report is clean.
2007 Audi S6 V10 (115,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 11.17.2023 1:35 PM EST
No Reserve. Haven’t seen one of these on Auction Watch for a while, a 5.2L V10 equipped sedan. When new, the engine rated 435HP/398 lb-ft and this one spins a 6-speed automatic. The exterior is Brilliant Black and the interior is black as well with 12-way Nappa leather front sport seats, carbon fiber trim, and Bose surround sound. Please read the listing’s Recent Service History for work done since March 2021. Carfax reports minor damage to the front, twice, first in December 2018 and again May 2019.
2001 Audi S4 Avant (161,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 11.17.2023 1:50 PM EST
No Reserve. This long roof is showing its age and mileage. The color is Light Silver metallic over a black interior with Onyx/silver two-tone leather/Alcantara seats, and Bose sound. The 2.7L twin-turbo (250HP/258 lb-ft when new) mates to a 6-speed manual. Mods include 17” Ace Lola wheels, a StopTech 332 Big Brake Kit, a Vibrant Performance cat-back exhaust, upgraded diverter valves, and an AWE center vent boost gauge.

Carfax reports a right side sideswipe collision (pictured) in November 2020, the intake, door, and side skirt were repaired.
2009 Audi S5 Coupe (25,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 11.19.2023 3:06 PM EST
Low mileage for the model year, this is the 4.2L N/A V8 powered early S5 and it has a 6-speed manual. That engine runs an APR Stage 1 tune and intake, it breathes out through an AWE Touring exhaust. It’s finished in Phantom Black pearl over a black interior with Tuscan Brown Nappa leather seats and door panels, carbon fiber trim, and B&O sound. The chassis rides on KW V1 coilovers and a set of Modulare 20″ custom wheels and a car cover come with the sale. The Carfax is clean.
2008 Audi RS 4 (19,000 Kilometers)
Bring a Trailer – 11.19.2023 3:50 PM EST
Another low mileage, N/A V8 running and APR Stage 1 ECU tune. This Avus Silver Pearl Effect sedan lives in Canada. Paint protection film is fitted to the hood, fenders, mirrors, front bumper cover, roof, and headlights. As with all RS 4, the drivetrain is a 4.2L V8 spinning a 6-speed manual but the special effect with this one is the interior. It has Audi Exclusive black Nappa leather seats with red piping and red stitching on the steering wheel, carbon fiber trim, and a Premium Package. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2021Audi SQ7 (22,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 11.20.2023 2:35 PM EST
Looking like a bad guy’s movie get-away car, this Night Black with black powder coated OEM wheels, exterior chrome delete, and tinted front windows look pretty serious. The 4.0L twin-turbo V8, Audi rated at 500HP/568 lb-ft, mates to an 8-speed Tiptronic. Major options are Executive, Driver Assistance, and Towing packages, carbon vector inlays, and Sport exhaust resonator kit. All-wheel steering and B&O 3D premium sound are standard. The Carfax report is clean.
2014 Audi R8 V10 Spyder (19,000 Miles)

The seller states that paint protection film was applied to the body. The 5.2L V10, Audi rated at 525HP/391 lb-ft, connects to a 7-speed S tronic. The Carfax report is clean and states the PPF is covered by a lifetime warranty in a June 2023 entry.
2014 Audi Q5 TDI (92,000 Miles)

The 3.0L V6 turbodiesel engine (240HP/428 lb-ft) connects to an 8-speed Tiptronic. Carfax reports no accidents or damage.
2006 Audi S4 (67,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 11.21.2023 3:03 PM EST
No Reserve. One owner, Brilliant Red, and low mileage for the MY, what’s not to like? The black interior has Ebony Silk Nappa leather Recaro seats, carbon fiber trim, Cold Weather package, and an Audi Symphony CD/cassette stereo. Under the hood lies a 4.2L V8 that connects to a 6-speed Tiptronic. It rides on 18″ BBS CH wheels wearing Michelin Pilot Sport AS4 tires installed in April 2023. The Carfax report is clean but there are some nasty rock chips in the pictures.
2005 Audi S4 (89,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 11.21.2023 2:30 PM EST
No Reserve. Unmodified and a 6-speed manual are good starting points to consider on this Brilliant Red B7. A 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) powers the manual gearbox. The black interior has Ebony Nappa leather Recaro seats, carbon fiber trim, and an Audi Symphony CD/cassette stereo with Bose sound.

The nice Sepang Blue pearl exterior has paint protection film on the front of the car. A black soft top matches the black interior with leather seats, Audi Parking System Plus, and B&O sound. The 5.2L V10, Audi rated at 525HP/391 lb-ft, had its air conditioning compressor, oil level thermal sensor, and oil pump input shaft seals replaced in 2023 along with a heater control valve.

1993 Audi S4 (168,000 Miles)
cars & bids – 11.22.2023 2:10 PM EST
No Reserve. If the Wizard of Oz had a car, this would be it as it’s finished in Emerald Green metallic which is over an Ecru Interior. This gem has an extensive list of mods from 2Bennett, the listing is a must read. The 2.2L turbocharged I5 has been rebuilt and has an RS 2 Turbo upgrade. It is showing its age with a few flaws but has a clean Carfax report albeit with a few gaps.
2000 Audi S4 (115,000 Miles)
Bring a Trailer – 11.22.2023 4:24 PM EST
The exterior is Laser Red (front bumper, hood, and fenders were refinished in February 2023 following front-end damage) and the black interior has Onyx Silk Nappa leather seats and Birdseye maple wood trim. The twin-turbo 2.7L V6 is equipped Motoza Performance engine management software, DeatschWerks 750cc fuel injectors, 3″ downpipes without catalytic converters, and a dual exhaust system. Please read the listing for more mods. Five Avus wheels with tires come with the sale. The Carfax is clean but the Check Engine light is on reportedly due a fault related to the exhaust gas temperature sensors.
