A special sale took place on January 10 at BCA Bedford, made possible by the coming together of Lex Autolease and BCA. A total of 400 end-of-lease cars, including some prestige and sporting models, are in this sale. The Bedford auction centre was visited by more than 300 buyers, with 533 more logging on to make a bid via BCA’s Live Online internet bidding service. There were more than 90% of auto sales on the day to achieve a £3 million-plus turnover that got 99% of CAP Clean.
This show’s star is the 2006 Fisker Tramonto that is the only right hand drive model from the 15 models produced. The Tramonto is a true supercar.
Based on the Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG, the Tramonto is built by the firm based in California that had been founded by Henrik Fisker, formerly the head designer of Aston Martin.
The car was given a Titanium Quartz Metallic paint and it has a two-tone Sand interior in the best Italian leather. It also has an aluminum finish with hints of carbon fiber all over.
Bidding had become highly competitive in the auction hall and online. It eventually sold for £50,000, which is computed as 172% of CAP.
Another model that sold for £28,850 in the auction is the 0858 Hummer 2 6.2 Lux at 17,000 miles. It is finished in a striking combination of orange and black with lots of chrome trim. Its price is equivalent to 112% of CAP.
