More Cheap Sportscars at Auction Today

Sat, 03 Nov 2007
Once again soft-top prices sunk, making them an excellent buy to smoke until Spring, then get your money back plus a bit.

You’d have to buy some clothes when you got there if you’d bought the 41k mile 02 reg MR2 in the photo because there’s nowhere to put them in the car. But just £4,700 would leave you enough for a Paul Smith outfit.

The pretty Peugeot 306 convertible in all sorts of shades pf pink that didn’t sell on Wednesday sold today for just £1,500. A 2003/53 206CC went for £6,300. A 2003/52 reg SLK 230K sold for £8,950. An 03 reg Audi TT 225 roadster heard the hammer fall at £10,550.

Among the tintops, a mega-mile 2000X Celica went for just £3,000. An 04 Rover 75 1.8T with satnav, 25k miles unwarranted and the Frankenstein facelift sold for £4,900. A 200X Prius sold for £2,700. A Y reg Santa Fe for £2,700. And a 98R CR-V for £1,675.

But some cars were TFD (too dear). We’re fast approaching minicab season, which explained why a scruffy 87k mile 2003/53 Sharan TDI 115 made £6,900.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage.
