Few Bargains at Auction Today

Wed, 13 Sep 2006
Stimulated by the thought of part-exchange bargains, buyers have been flocking to the auctions and bidding so hard against each other that few cars have actually been selling below trade book. Some have even reached book retail. A pristine 25k mile Golf GTi with ten service stamps, but 95N, sold for £3,700. A pair of early Aston Martin DB7s were split by condition. One was a superb 40,000 mile manual with full Aston Martin Service history, worth a lot more than the £20,400 it went for. The other, frankly, was a bit of a dog.
