Lord of the (auction) ring

BRITISH Car Auctions and Lombard joined forces last year for a one-off Lord of the Rings-themed sale.

The Birmingham-based event saw more than 300 cars sold by members of staff dressed in character.

Ian Trapp, head of remarketing at Lombard, said: 'Our themed events with BCA attract a great deal of support from buyers and are a highlight in our annual sales calendar.

'This was yet another successful event thanks to the hard work of the BCA staff and excellent presentation of the vehicles.'

Cars sold on the day included a 2003 MINI Cooper 1.6 3dr with 4,190 miles for £13,900, 120% of Cap clean, a 1999 Renault Megane 1.6 Sport Alize 5dr with 43,429 miles for £4,350, 112%of CAP clean and a 2003 Audi A3 1.8 Sport 5dr with 6,344 miles for £16,600, 112% of CAP clean.
