With so many incredible auction platforms, both traditional and untraditional, enthusiasts could spend all day searching all these outlets for interesting cars hitting the market. Audi Club aims to keep its members up to date with Ingolstadt’s finest as they are listed with this new series of stories. We’ll monitor the auction houses looking for interesting new finds, and hopefully our Audi enthusiast members will be informed enough to snap up the best of them.
If you’re a fan of televised auctions, Mecum Auctions are in Glendale, AZ, 16-19 March. Mecum’s on MotorTrend TV network and streaming on MotorTrend+ this year. Only three Audis are on the Glendale docket, a 2008 TT Roadster (16th), an RS7 (17th), and an R8 Spyder (19th). While there are typically few Audis on theirs dockets, you can learn a lot about cars from watching these auctions.
With that, let’s find the pot of gold in this week’s on-line listings.

This B7 S4 is powered by a factory-rated 340HP/302 lb-ft 4.2L V8 paired with a 6-speed manual; however, a carbon fiber airbox and Stasis exhaust may raise those engine numbers.

Carfax reports an accident with minor rear end damage.

Bring a Trailer – 03.21.2022 4:28 PM EDT
A 4.2L V8 mated to a 6-speed Tiptronic moves this Brilliant Black beauty down the road. The wow factor? The interior. Amaretto leather covers the seats, door panel inserts, and armrests, while amber Vavona wood veneers accent the contrasting black dashboard, center console, and door panels. And it has the optional wood-rimmed steering wheel too. The Carfax report is as clean as the car.
