Some Sensible Buys at Auction Today

Wed, 04 Jul 2007
This 65k mile 04 reg Prius II T-Spirit needed a jump to get it started, then mysteriously glided to the hall on its electric motor. But traders were wary, so it started at only £8,000 and bid to £8,500, not selling.

Car of the day was the Audi A6. No less than three current A6s were present. A 24k mile 2004/54 2.4 V6 SE Multitronic sold for just £15,000, a 23k mile 2004/54 3.0 V6 TDI quattro Tiptronic with plenty of extras but no satnav sold for £20,000. But the one that didn't figure was a rare 12k mile 06 reg 2.0 TDI SE 140 Multitronic that must have been bid for blind because it had extensive badly repaired body damage, yet ran to £20,000 provisional.

Someone else got away with a 19k mile SEAT Alhambra 2.0 TDI PD 140 for £12,900. Remember, this is the only Shalambra still made and now comes with VAG’s current 2.0 TDI 140 rather than the old 1.9 130.

On the other hand a 35k mile 05 reg Hyundai Trajet 2.0CRDT SE made all the money at £8,150, while a 5k mile 2006/56 KIA Sportage 2.0 CRDI XS sold for a very strong £13,250.

I guess oddball of the day was a 62k mile 2001X Mercedes S500 with painted over rust and the unusual option of leather front but cloth rear seats. It sold for £10,050.

A scruffy 75k mile 1999T BMW Z4 1.9 was cheap at £5,800. But there was a bidding battle for a 2000W Mercedes SLK 200 manual that started at £7k but bid up in 50’s to £8,850.

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.
