Gold Dust Expensive at Auction Today

Fri, 24 Feb 2006
It seems that Toyota might have slipped up by not offering a 3-dr version of its new RAV-4 (which was, after all, how the RAV-4 started). I got wind a few weeks ago that there was a rush on to snap up the last few new ones, none more wanted than the XT3 automatic. So when I saw this one I alerted a pal who buys for a Toyota dealer.

Book for an 05/54 reg with 13k miles works out at £12,250, plus £775 for the autobox, so that’s £13,025. The 7,500 miler in the photo sold for £13,700.
