Star car

Car: 2002 52 Audi A4 Avant TDi Sport Tiptronic Mileage: 58,000 miles Where sold: BCA Tewkesbury How much: £17,350 % of CAP: 115%

Background: Direct entered from the finance company, this ex-management car with a generous specification including sat-nav, leather, parking sensors and blacked-out windows was superbly presented in dark blue and was offered for sale in excellent condition. The Audi A4 estate models are highly desirable and when examples do come to the market there is always a lot of interest. BCA Tewkesbury had three commission bids logged for the car and an auction hall packed with potential buyers. Competitive bidding saw the value soar past CAP Clean at £15,100, with the hammer falling at £17,350 – 15% over the guide value.
