GT2 Sells For £68,100 at Auction Today

Mon, 10 Oct 2005
In what looked like a fair bidding battle, this repossessed 462PS RHD 1,639 mile 2003/53 Porsche GT2 sold to a private buyer for £68,100, plus a hefty £1,455 buyers premium.

Standard Turbos have fallen back a bit in the book lately. But a GT2 isn’t a standard turbo, so the man definitely got his money’s worth. He wouldn’t find another anywhere for what he paid.

Plenty of other good stuff either sold or bid to sensible money. A 40k mile 03 reg Jaguar XJ 4.2SE sold for £23,000. The 65k mile 2003/53 Jaguar XJ 3.5SE bid to £21,200 on Friday only bid to £19,900 today. A 37k mile 04 reg BMW 525iSE auto sold for £19,000. A46k mile 2000X BMW X5 4.4i Sport bid to just £17,400. A 27k mile 03 reg Honda NSX sold for £35,750. A 43k mile Y reg Merc CL600 bid to £23,600.

A 1,053 mile 2002/53 reg Aston Martin Vanquish bid to £99,000, a 21k mile 04 reg Mazda RX8 231 with leather sold for £17,000. A 14k mile 04 reg Evo VIII FQ330 sold for £18,000. A 94k mile 98R Merc SLK 2.3K sold for – wait for it - £8,700. And a 104k mile Y reg BMW 316iSE sold for a mere £5,250.

So there was value to be found among the expensive cars today.

What wasn’t was a 72k mile 2000X Toyota Yaris 1.0GS 5-door with PAS in doom blue. I’d have said £1,750. It sold for £2,600.
