FIAT 500 Makes Way Over Book at Auction Today

Fri, 03 Jul 2009
This 4k mile Punk Grey 2008/58 500 1.2 Lounge was billed as a 1.3 Multijet, but the error was pointed out before bidding started. It also had some desirable extras, such as leather, climate control and rear parking sensors, and had originated from FIAT’s showpiece Marylebone Showroom. Booked at £7,575 with 10k miles. Sold for £8,300.

There are some signs that prices are settling down, but far from evenly.

Small, low emission cars like an 08 Fiesta 1.2 Style Climate and an 08 Corsa 1.2 Club were strong money.

Status diesels were fairly strong, for example an 05 Jaguar X-Type 2.0S made £7,150 against a mere £4,700 for an identical under the skin 05 Mondeo 2.0TDCI 130 Ghia with similar miles.

Family diesels seemed to me to be a bit softer, with £5,650 paid for a 41k mile 06 Citroen Xsara Picasso 1.6HDI Desire and £5,000 for a 69k mile 07 Focus 1.6TDCI 90 Studio estate.

The big stuff seemed down a bit. £23k for an 08 Mercedes C320CDI Sport estate against book of £27,325 with 12k fewer miles. £33,200 was just a little bit under for an 05 997 Carrera Tiptronic S allowing for 3k more.

£72,500, on the other hand, was way over book for an 03 Aston Martin Vanquish 5.9 S.

Such an uneven market provides opportunities and traps. So be careful out there.

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.
