Full Auction Report: Bangers to Supercars on 23-10-2013

Published 26 October 2013

The headline news on 23rd October £127,000 paid for a year old McLaren MP4-12C and a more significant £62,400 for a 6-month old Jaguar F-Type V8S on its second or third auction appearance.

So no ‘overs’ there, and confirmation of the thinking that the F-Type was originally priced as high as it could be.

At the other end of the scale I counted four cars sold for £150 each and a respectable 10-year-old 165k-mile Primera sent on its way for £175.

Massive mileages and potential for trouble mean than most of the trade won’t waste its time with these motors.

But for saleable late model cars, for October, prices were generally very strong.

BCA now helpfully provided traders with marked up catalogues showing original list price, retail value, CAP clean price, average condition trade price and below average trade price.

And most cars worth buying were selling for around the average trade price.

A 60k mile 07 Range Rover TDV8 Vogue was nearly £1,000 over CAP clean at £20,700. So was a rare 37k mile 09 7-seater Jeep Commander Limited at £13,500 and a 45k miles 2008/58 VW Touareg 3.9V6TDI Altitude at £16,300, making the point that at this time of year demand for 4x4s goes up and prices naturally follow.

Contradicting this, a 37k mile 2010/60 BMW X6 30D was slightly under CAP clean but still above average at £25,600. A 16k mile 2011/61 Subaru Legacy 2.0ES Nav Lineartronic was £1,100 under ‘below average’ at £11,500. A 14k mile 2011/61 Subaru Forester 2.0XS was £200 under ‘below average’ at £14,800s. And a 100k mile 07 Mercedes R320CSI SE 4-Matic with a tow hook was £575 under ‘below average’ at £6,300, but at 100k miles trouble was probably about to start.

Potential taxis also sell well at this time of year and a 64k mile 08 Mondeo 2.0TDCI Zetec automatic made a resounding £5,400, £450 over CAP Clean.

Four BMW M3 V8s in the sale either sold for CAP clean or didn’t sell at all

This time, to make searching the lists easier, I’ve put everything in one list.

That’s CC Trade, UK CGR and Porsche Retail.

(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. ‘H/T’ means hardtop. ‘imp’ means unofficial import. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘nav’ are specified when they are not standard.)
