£15 to £37,400 at auction today

Mon, 23 Oct 2006
For £15, an ex-BA 30k mile 96N Fiesta 1.1 Classic that appeared to have spend most its life leading 747s around Heathrow. For £37,400 the 1,757 mile 06 reg Mercedes ML230CDI on 19” alloys, showing they aren’t quite the same currency X5 diesels once were.

Plenty more. It was a very varied day. From three figure no reserve part-exchanges to some very tasty Top Cars. A privately entered 28k mile 03 reg black Porsche 911 996 Turbo with the ‘wrong’ green leather interior has been hanging around for two weeks reserved at £50,000, but top genuine trade bid today was £45,000.

Here’s the list. ‘s’ means sold. ‘n/w’ means unwarranted mileage. ‘p’ means top provisional bid. ‘n/s’ means not sold.
