Spectacular convertibles at Blackbushe

Lex Autolease and Black Horse offered 400 convertibles at BCA Blackbushe on Saturday 17th April and every single car sold, generating a turnover of £4.6 million pounds

The ‘beach-themed' event was held on a glorious sunny day at Blackbushe and attracted over 350 buyers to the sale, with a further 100 dealers bidding via the internet using BCA's Live Online service.

With a broad selection of stock ranging in value from under £4,000 to over £50,000, bidding was brisk from the first car - sold at 10.30 am - through to the last sold at 3.20 pm. Private buyers and dealers bid strongly throughout the sale, which achieved 101% of CAP Clean across the board.

Simon Rossiter, Lex Autolease Senior Manager, Valuations and Auctions, said "This was the best convertible sale we have held to date in terms of turnover and conversion. BCA certainly pulled out all the stops to generate buying power - the auction hall was packed and with a large number of online bidders competing as well, the sale was fast and furious."

Alan Gupwell Account Manager BCA added "The Lex Autolease and Black Horse brand names have a strong following at BCA and this spring convertible event attracted a massive crowd of buyers. It was a spectacular event and the result speaks for itself."
