The closed sale at Manheim Auctions Colchester, attracted more than 60 approved Ford dealers and buyers keen to grab the first used C-MAX cars. Prior to the auction, all vehicles were completely open to inspection and could be test-driven.
Craig Mailey, director of buyer services for Manheim Auctions, said: 'The appraisal session was designed to give our customers complete assurance in the vehicles they purchase. We believe the success of this was reflected in the 100% conversion.'
Commenting on the success of the auction, Chris Shambrook, auction manager for Ford of Britain, said: 'Letting customers inspect and drive similar vehicles beforehand served to reinforce buyers' confidence in the latest Ford products.'
