1995.5 Audi S6 Avant

This car sold for $17,672 on June 28, 2021.

Just recently I looked at a very nice example of the last of the C4 S6 Avants offered in the US – the ‘95.5 model in Aluminum Silver Metallic:

1995.5 Audi S6 Avant

With “only” 132,000 miles on the odometer and looking pretty fresh, despite a few question marks I felt like it was a pretty reasonable asking price at $14k. Well, wouldn’t you know it? ANOTHER “low mileage” 1995.5 S6 Avant in Aluminum Silver Metallic has turned up for sale. What are the odds? What are the odds? Well, one in 32 according to this seller – but that was when they were new of course. Let’s take a look:

Whew, quite the description, and unusual for an older Audi – right to the breakdown of colors and options. Presentation and condition appear to be really top-notch here, and this one has not only desirable equipment like the third-row seat but also has bigger maintenance like the timing belt taken care of. Complaints? Not much to gripe about here; it’s not the most exciting color combination, but you lost your option to choose that some 26 years ago. With a few days to go this one is already steamed past 10k, but I’d guess there are more bids yet to come. If it’s followed good-condition Avant trends previously, it should end at the better part of double the current bid. We’ll see.

Thanks to our reader John E. for alerting me to this one as well!

  1. Finally! One with actually pretty low miles! That’s cool to see one in such nice condition. 150k mile Audi’s just don’t excite me–no matter how “special” it is.

  2. beautiful example of a wagon that is well sorted. I miss my 92 s4 and 95.5 s6 every time I see a nice one. this one should fetch around 16-18k.
