Find of the Day: 2015 Audi exclusive Glut Orange S3 Skittles Car

words: Bill, photos: Zach Gordon

Back in 2015, Audi of America rolled out what are affectionally known as the ‘Skittles’ S3. These were a batch of 25 cars equally split between 5 colors: Vegas Yellow, Viper Green, Sepang Blue, Misano Red, and Glut Orange. Each car got an Audi exclusive leather package with contrast stitching including covered door armrests and knee pads, Audi exclusive leather controls with contrast stitching including steering wheel and gear shift, and Audi exclusive body-colored inlays. Each were built to Prestige Package equipment levels and included S Sport seats and 19-inch Performance Package. 2015 S3s were available in Sepang Blue and Misano Red but Vegas Yellow, Viper Green, and Glut Orange were outside the norm. This particular S3 is one of those five Glut Orange cars. Here’s the ad:

I’m selling my 2015 Audi S3 in Glut Orange with the Audi Exclusive color matched interior stitching and trim pieces. This is 1 of 5 cars produced in this color for the 8v S3 generation and originally owned by Audi and used by Scott Keogh (former Audi CEO, current VWAG CEO).

Details about the original release can be found by searching Google for “Audi S3 skittle;” several articles were written by Jalopnik and other publications (Autotrader does not allow outside links, otherwise I would provide those). Due to it being a corporate car, it is my assumption that it is the car featured in the publicity photos, but I don’t have proof of that…

I purchased the car with a few maintenance issues that were promptly and professionally addressed. This list includes:
– oil changes every 5k miles
-DSG transmission fluid and filter service
-Differential gear oil service
-Differential fluid pump replacement
-Spark plugs replaced with RS7 plugs
-New OEM brake pads and rotors all around
-New Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 tires

Modifications include:
-IE v2 intake
-EQT Stage 1 tune
-EQT DSG tune
-Resonator delete
-EQT coilovers, Swift 9″ 7k springs in the rear
-iSweep Mag Ride canceller kit
-OZ Ultraleggera HLT wheels, 19″

I’ve owned numerous VWAG products and this is by far the best maintained and attractive vehicle that I have owned. I can put serious parties in touch with the mechanic that works on the car to confirm condition.

As mentioned before, Sepang Blue and Misano Red were offered as a stock color on the 2015 S3 but there were only 5 Glut Orange that came out of the factory in this spec. So what is the price of exclusive admission? This Glut Orange has 51,500 miles and is listed for $39,000. These don’t pop up very often and are a rare as hens’ teeth. You can find this Skittles HERE.
