Big Cars Off The Boil At Auction

Mon, 13 Nov 2006
Whether it’s the Greenies, tax-rises or impending recession, the big stuff was way down today. Some vendors were grabbing the money as fast as they could. Others hadn’t quite caught on. One of the chaps I spoke to had £18k for a rare 60k mile 2003/53 BMW 760iL, but the sheet said £26k, so he reckoned roll on next week. Meanwhile, other cars sold massively under book. Judge the evidence for yourself below.

One exception was the super-clean 8,666 mile 99T F355 Spyder in the photo that sold for £49,500.

The Volvos in the list are part of the small residue from last Wednesday’s 145 car sale.

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