Footballers Cars Make Supercar Bargains at Auction

Published 13 June 2014

The UK's Premier Division footballers may be car fanatics, but their huge salaries and fickle temperaments lead to some supercar bargains at auction. 

A Carbon Black McClaren MP4-12C sold for £127,000 last October.

A left hand drive 458 Spider F1 finished in Rosso Red fetched £152,000, whilst two F430 F1’s, one in Black and the second in Red, sold for £81,800 and £80,000 respectively. A Ferrari California F1 +2 in black, sold for £111,000 in April.

An Aston Martin DB9 V12 470 was sold at BCA earlier this year for £79,200 and an Aston Martin DBS Volante V12 Touchtronic for £97,200.

This year BCA has sold a selection of Audi R8 models this year, averaging around £90,000.

While supercar dealers have an interest in hyping supercar prices, particularly for Ferrari 458s, auction is where the truth is told.

And if you keep that auction bought supercar for long enough, you should inevitably see it bottom out and its price start to rise again, as testified by the £337,120 paid for a 1983 Lamborghini Countach last Saturday at Historics.
