DB7 Volante Over Book at Auction Today

Mon, 21 May 2007
This nice looking 200X but 55,000 mile Aston Martin DB7 5.9 Volante auto with a worn patch on its hood sold for £32,000 at auction today. Glass's trade book for 32k miles is £32,500 but this car had done nearly twice that mileage, though did have a full Aston Martin service history.

Amongst the other cars, some looked value for money such as a 25k mile 2002/52 Ford Maverick sold for £5,350 and a 20k mile 05 Hyundai Coupe 2.7V6 sold for £8,500.

But learner cars were expensive. None more than a 54k mile 1999S Renault Clio 1.2 Grande sold for an astonishing £1,675

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘dmg’ means damaged.
