Hot Golf makes auction debut

THE Volkswagen Golf R32 made its debut in the auction halls and achieved a 100% conversion rate at Manheim Auctions Bristol.

More than 45 Volkswagen retailers attended the sale and prices saw the car retain up to 98% of its list price (£23,215).

Volkswagen used car sales manager Peter Webb said: 'The results achieved by the R32 at auction confirm the demand we have seen for the vehicle new. The excellent spec and performance have made the Golf R32 an excellent addition to Volkswagen's range and will give Volkswagen another model that will achieve cult status.'

David Rouse, operations manager, manufacturer services, Manheim Auctions, said: 'Volkswagens are always a popular addition to any sale and we are pleased that the Golf R32 will be no exception. The high standard of vehicle preparation along with the desirability of the vehicle resulted in excellent results for all concerned.'

In addition to the Golf R32's excellent performance at the sale, the Beetle Cabriolet was also a big hit, retaining between 95% and 97% of its list price.
