High-spec Land Rovers are best-sellers

PRE-SALE valeting and a successful marketing campaign led to 56 out of 57 Land Rovers being sold at a recent Manheim auction.

Last week's sale at Manheim's Rotherham branch saw vehicles with the highest specification selling fastest. Marilyn Slack, auction centre manger at Rotherham, said: 'Higher-spec models achieved the best prices. Overall, prices and con-versions seem to be consistent despite a fluctuating general market place.'

Vehicles sold included a 2000W Land Rover Freelander 1.8 Xi five-door, with 48,000 miles on the clock, for £10,000.

A 1998 S Range Rover 2.5 DSE with 55,000 miles went for £14,700 and a 1999 V Discovery 2.5 TD5 GS seven-seater, with 45,000 miles, reached £14,500.

Slack added: 'This was a great result and speaks volumes for the level of interest and demand for Land Rover vehicles at auction.'
