Audis Make Mad Money at Auction Today

Wed, 06 Jul 2005
Today’s jaw-droppers included this 17k mile completely standard 04 reg Audi TT 1.8T 150 Roadster. New, they originally sold at £20k at a discount. But Glass’s books an 04 with 16k at £16,525 and, being the silly season, this one went over book to sell for £16,850. A 35k mile 03 reg A4 1.8T Sport cabrio then promptly made £19,550. And a 23k mile 2004/54 A3 TDI 140 DSG S-Line sold for £17,100.

An apparently unique 17k mile 04 reg Alfa GT 2.0JTS Selaspeed (the only one in the country with satnav) sold for £16,800. (Check out Week’s Best Deals on this website to make sense of that.) An old shape 58k mile 03 reg SAAB 9-3 Aero convertible sold for £13,900. An 11k mile 02 reg MGTF 1.8VVC 160 sold for £7,350. Even a 43k mile 02 reg Rover 75 Connoisseur 2.0CDT Tourer rallied to sell for £7,200.

Not many cheapies today, but a 55k mile 97R Rover 420SLI obviously was for just £600.

The big event on Monday 11th July is a sale of 125 convertibles from Lloyds TSB autolease, plus a section of Black Horse Finance repossessions and the usual Top Car sale.
