MILEAGE: 91,990
WHERE SOLD: Manheim Auctions Rotherham
SALE PRICE: £12,200
% of CAP Clean: 107%

BACKGROUND: The car had a high mileage on the clock, which didn’t deter buyers as the car was in good condition with a full maintenance history. Silver looks good on this car, another reason for the price achieved. Someone will be getting a car with a three-pointed star on their drive eventually for the price of an 18-month-old Vectra
