Loaded R500L Sold For £40k At Auction Today

Mon, 08 Jan 2007
With all the environmental flak flying at big engines and especially big engined SUVs I concentrated on these at Top Car and in the Black Horse Finance section today.

Mercedes R500s had been selling at £15,000 discounts in the final quarter of 2006, taking an R500L down to £36,535 before extras. But that offer is now over and this 483 mile 56 reg had a lot of kit, so at £40k it might not hurt the trader who bought it.

In the Black Horse section just about every 2nd car seemed to be a Range Rover, but some of the prices they were run to or knocked down for weren’t too bad in the circumstances.

Judge for yourself. As usual, ‘s’ means ‘sold’, ‘p’ means ‘provisional’, ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted.

Audi A8 4.0 V8TDI Quattro, 2004/54, 25k miles £26,400p
Ferrari F355 F1 coupe, 1999T, 31k miles £39,000p
