Mixed Messages, But Some Auction Prices Very High Today

Fri, 13 Feb 2009
Superstition didn’t seem to be keeping buyers away and this spotless 33k mile, but four and a half year old, Yaris 1.3 T-Spirit auto made a massive £5,600.

Huge money, but find another really good small torque converter auto (and I don’t include Polos).

In contrast an 05 MINI Cooper convertible could not have been much cheaper at £5,500, though its 108k miles might have had something to do with it.

Plenty of current shape Passat diesels to choose from today, probably all from the same company fleet. I wonder what they replaced them with?

A two and a half year old 16k mile Lexus LS460 made £26,000. A lot of car for the money, but not quite as much at the 96P Mercedes W140 S420 that sold for £1,050. (Current S-Class are dropping £1,000 a month in the book.)

I couldn’t stay for the 07 Alfa Spider 3.2TTS Q4, the 2006/56 Range Rover Sport 2.7TDV6 and the 2007/56 Jaguar XKR in the Hitachi section, but if anyone did and knows what they made please drop me an e-mail

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.
