Today’s Supercar Auction Results

Mon, 08 Dec 2008
Today’s auctioneer monologue was punctuated by the primeval roars of supercar engines starting, sounding like the prehistoric creatures they have all suddenly become.

LEX let almost all of its cars go, except for the Audi A5 2.7TDI and the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Jardine, on the other hand, played its provisional cards close to its chest, only allowing the hammer to fall on one Aston Martin V8 Vantage, sold for £44,000.

The 97R F550 may have been an example of one of the finest Ferraris ever built, but not the best example. Eleven ownerships, an unwarranted mileage and a shiny steering wheel left bidders nervous enough to start at just £15,000. But its decent service history including a 2006 cambelt change saw some more competitive nods and raised eyebrows and it finally sold for £26,800.

A pair of leggy 06 Lexus LS430s were cheap, but, having missed the 116k miler sold for £7,550, a bidder fought hard to land the 136k miler for £7,300.

To me, dearest car of the auction was a 33k mile 2004/53 Toyota Yaris 1.3 T4 5-door that eventually sold for a whopping £3,475.

Big cars may be dead, but there’s still money in the right small cars.

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. D/R means damaged and repaired. ‘fl’ means facelift. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.
