An SL60 Sports Coupe, N-registered and complete with full AMG body kit saw offers begin at £32,000 and was eventually sold for just over £51,000. Mercedes-Benz turned to ECA when bidding at a large national auction house failed to reach anywhere near the car's eventual selling price. Hussey's auctioneer John Hubbard said: 'We may be a relatively small concern when compared to BCA or CMA, but this sale helps to prove small professional firms like ourselves with years of experience and in-depth local knowledge can produce the results customers want. More Mercedes will be on sale in the future.'
Also sold on the day was a '95N Mercedes C180 Elegance auto for £10,000 and a consignment of seven Peugeot diesel cars direct from Cornwall County Council, including a '96N 306 DT for £6,550, a '95N 306 XLDT for £5,250 and a '95N 405 GLXDT estate for £6,650.
