Prestige Cars Plummet, But Still Sell at Auction

Mon, 13 Oct 2008
The 58 reg RS6 outside reception has been tactically withdrawn at Blackbushe today, but buyers were spoiled for choice and for anyone with money there were some serious bargains to be bagged.

The 9k mile 06 Aston Martin V8 Vantage in the photo sold for £45,300, but another, 2006/56 with 19k miles, only bid to a provisional £41,800 (though may have sold post sale).

Not everything was on the floor. A 9k mile 07 Audi A5 3.0TDI quattro Sport with surface scratches in the lacquer made a very strong £30,000. And a 41k mile 3 year old A6 Avant with the 3.0 V6 and quattro drivetrain, but ‘comfort’ 16” wheels was slightly over book at £16,200. And a 3 year old 41k mile Fiesta 1.6TDCI Zetec S (quite a nippy little car and only £35 tax) sold for a very strong £6,150.

Sorry, I couldn’t stay for MB Direct, Black Horse and Top Car, which included two more F36s, a Noble M12, an 83k mile Bentley Continental GT and a 2006/56 Rolls Phantom.

I thought better get this out as early as possible.

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.
