Expensive Cars Going Cheap at Auction Today

Mon, 11 Aug 2008
I guess top of the hit parade was a 23k mile Lexus LS460 sold for £31,000, which is £16,250 under trade book for 6k miles over book mileage.

A 36k mile BMW 650CI convertible went for £25,250, which is £7,300 under book for 7k miles over. A 22k mile 05 Mercedes SL500 was £5,650 under trade book for 17k miles under book mileage. A 30k mile 05 Bentley Continental GT went for £50,000, which is £10,775 under trade book for 10k over book mileage. And so it went on.

The only peculiarities were a 2001/51 40k mile Honda S2000 that provoked a bidding battle and sold for £9,250. And a 36k mile 07 W221 Mercedes S320CDI L with scuffed rims and minor body damage that was expected to sell for around £30k, but had two commission buyers battle it out to £35,200.

In the old days they might have known each other and spun for the car. But on commission there’s no incentive to do that, so the vendor actually gets a better deal than the eventual buyer.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘pc’ means provisional, but close. ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage. ‘dmg’ means damaged. ‘fl’ means facelift. ‘s/r’ means sunroof. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.
