RECORD: VW Caravelle went for £31,400

An extremely rare 61-registered Volkswagen Caravelle 2.0litre 180 BiTDI ‘Edition 25′ has commanded a record-breaking sum of £31,400 at auction.

The vehicle – which was sold at British Car Auctions’ (BCA) Measham site last month after being entered by VWFS – went for the highest fee ever recorded for a VW Transporter at BCA.

Duncan Ward, General Manager of Commercial Vehicles at BCA, said: “This was a very rare example of the Caravelle Transporter, with a particularly high specification.

“This is executive travel at its most luxurious and we had a huge amount of interest from buyers.

“Just 225 examples of this particular specification were built, so it is not a vehicle you will see every day.”

The high-spec Caravelle featured seven seats, air conditioning, heated front seats, leather trim, privacy glass, rear parking sensors and satellite navigation system.

It was offered with a full service history, having covered just 21,000miles from new, and was finished in white with alloy wheels and black contrast trim.
