British Car Auctions (BCA) and Volkswagen Group combined for a sale worth a whopping £5.59million earlier this month.
The bumper haul took place at BCA’s Nottingham centre on September 5, with 419 cars sold direct from the Volkswagen Group and their partners LeasePlan, VWFS and Enterprise.
With 467 vehicles entered, the conversion rate hit 90%, while also achieving 102.2% of CAP Clean.
A broad range of Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda cars were featured, as well as several Volkswagen commercial vehicles.
The auction was the first repatriation sale staged for VW Group Used Vehicle Department.
Maria Mawby, Auction Group Manager at Volkswagen Group, said: “We worked closely with BCA on this sale to ensure the optimum mix of stock from VW Group sources and our business partners.
“The pre-sale marketing by BCA ensured excellent support from buyers and the presentation of the vehicles on the day was to the highest standards.
“This was an outstanding event that achieved an exceptionally strong CAP price performance across the board.”
Neil O’Keefe, Business Development Director at BCA, added: “This debut repatriation sale for Volkswagen Group was well-supported by the dealer network and Live Online bidders, which is reflected in the excellent price performance.”
