VEHICLE: 2002 52 Mercedes-Benz ML270 CDI tiptronic auto
WHERE SOLD: BCA Belle Vue
% OF CAP: 16%
BACKGROUND: A very nicely presented example of the desirable ML270 station wagon in silver, this was sold in a specialist prestige car sale at BCA Belle Vue earlier this month. Standard specification includes permanent four-wheel drive, electronic stability programme, traction control and five-spoke alloy wheels.
Direct entered by the fleet operator, this vehicle was sold for £27,000. CAP Clean is £23,300 meaning the car achieved 116% of CAP Clean.
The car was pre-sale Smart Prepared and the sale had been heavily marketed via BCA’s website and through direct email – this generated a lot of buying power in the auction hall and with competitive bidding was largely responsible for the value soaring above guide prices.
