Audi Club Auction Watch: quattro de Mayo 2022

Words: Steve Johnson

Enthusiasts could spend all day searching for their favorite car (or cars) on the many incredible auction platforms that now exist.  To save you time, Audi Club aims to keep its members up to date on Ingolstadt’s finest available for purchase with this series of stories.  We’re monitoring auction sites for interesting finds and hopefully our Audi enthusiast members will be informed enough to snap up the objects of their desires.

After taking part last week in the Georgia Chapter’s flagship event, Quattro de Mayo, I couldn’t resist posting Auction Watch today.  I’d like to thank all the ACNA Georgia Chapter members that worked so hard to put on such a great and safe event.  And on that quattro theme…

1984 Audi Sport quattro (1,700 Miles)

RM-Sothebys – 05.14.2022

For you multi-millionaires out there, this incredible Sport quattro is coming up for auction in Monaco.  Yes, that Monaco.  Audi was required to build 200 of these cars to homologate the model for Group B rally purposes but it’s thought only 164 of these road-going Sport quattros were delivered to customers.  The pre-auction sale estimate for this beauty is $800,000 to $1,100,000.  Please take the time to read the listing.

Now let’s check out this week’s more attainable listings.

Listing expires soon!  Nicely optioned: Technology, Black Optic, and Nappa Leather packages plus the Sports Diff and B&O sound system.  The stately Daytona Gray Pearl belies the wild heart of this car, the 3.0L supercharged V6 packing 333HP/325 lb-ft of go-power.  A clean Carfax report card too.

Back one S4 generation to the B7 and you find the 4.2L V8 (340HP/302 lb-ft) under the hood.  This one has a third pedal to keep your left leg busy while you row thru its 6-speed manual.  That’s Phantom Black Pearl over black leather with Recaro seats and carbon fiber interior.  No accidents or damage is reported by Carfax.

2011 Audi A4 Avant (174,000 Miles)

2011 Audi R8 V10 Coupe (72,000 Miles)

2002 Audi TT ALMS Commemorative Edition (49,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.05.2022 4:40 PM EDT

Another beautiful red ride, this one’s Misano Red Pearl with the contrasting Black Optic Package outside, and black Valcona leather seats, black Alcantara headliner, and Carbon Atlas inlays inside.  The turbocharged 4.0L V8 factory numbers are 450HP/406 lb-ft and this one’s mated to a 7-speed S tronic.  The Carfax report is clean.

2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder (1,900 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.06.2022 2:15 PM EDT

This former corporate demonstrator vehicle needs to be driven!  Another Daytona Gray Pearl beauty (over black leather seats with red stitching/carbon fiber trim) that downplays the power of its engine, this one’s the 5.2L V10 sitting amidships.  Drop the top and enjoy its sound as it shifts thru the 7-speed S tronic transmission.  The Carfax report is clean, of course.

2021 Audi RS7-R ABT (14,000 Miles)

Pcarmarket – 05.06.2022 3:00 PM EDT

2013 Audi S4 (166,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 05.06.2022 3:06 PM EDT

No Reserve.  One owner, unmodified, clean Carfax report, and a 6-speed manual!  And that manual is mated to a supercharged 3.0L V6 (333HP/325 lb-ft) with a Sport Diff.  Finished in Midnight Blue Metallic over black leather/Alcantara, it isn’t in perfect condition but considering the mileage it is pretty decent.  Some maintenance is needed, please see listing for more info.

2018 Audi TT Coupe (14,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 05.06.2022 3:54 PM EDT

Mythos Black over Rock Gray Fine Nappa Leather seats/black interior…a nice look.  The turbocharged I4 in the base TT is factory rated at 220HP/258 lb-ft and is mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission.  A Technology Package adds Audi’s Virtual Cockpit.  The Carfax report lists minor damage to the car’s rear in November 2019.

2012 Audi A8 L (36,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.06.2022 4:00 PM EDT

No Reserve.  The Silk Beige leather with wood trim interior just pops against the Phantom Black Pearl of this well-traveled beauty.  The 4.2L V8 (372HP/328 lb-ft) is mated to an 8-speed automatic for an effortless driving experience.  The Carfax report is as clean as the car looks in the pictures.

2013 Audi S4 (95,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 05.09.2022 2:10 PM EDT

Forget about the factory horsepower rating of this 3.0L supercharged engine, it’s raised to GIAC Stage 2 level.  See the listing for the extensive mod list.  It’s finished in Brilliant Black with Magma Red/Black Nappa leather interior with Piano Black trim.  Carfax report no accidents or damage.

2010 Audi S5 (99,000 Miles)

Cars & Bids – 05.09.2022 3:54 PM EDT

A Prestige model, and it looks the part!  Brilliant Black with a black grille and tinted windows over Tuscan Brown leather interior that is showing its age in places.  The 4.2L V8 (354HP/325 lb-ft) is mated to a 6-speed Tiptronic.  Carfax reports minor damage to the car’s rear in an October 2015 accident.

2007 Audi RS 4 (105,000 Miles)

2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder (28,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 05.09.2022 4:21 PM EDT

Another low mileage example of Audi’s halo car, this Daytona Gray Pearl over an enhanced black leather package has a Uniden radar detector to help keep you out of trouble.  The 5.2L V10 is factory rated at 525HP/391 lb-ft when new and this one’s mated to the 6-speed R-tronic.  It has a clean Carfax report.

2016 Audi RS 7 Performance (79,000 Miles)

Pcarmarket – 05.08.2022 3:00 PM EDT

Audi raised the stakes (and horsepower) to create the RS 7 Performance edition.  The twin-turbo 4.0L V8 puts out 605HP and 553 lb-ft (with overboost) of torque into an 8-speed Tiptronic.  The model is well-equipped and this car looks to be fully optioned to the tune of nearly $141,000 MSRP.  The Carfax report is clean.
