The Prestige Night Auction is a quarterly event at Manheim, offering the public an option to buy a range of luxury cars for a great price.
Over the years we have offered some incredible cars including a few Lamborghini’s and Ferrari’s, but what do you think is the most popular prestige model at auction? Is it the star car or the luxurious family car?
Well, our experienced team at Manheim have looked at the numbers and are here to tell you what the best buys are at auction.
Most popular brand
Germany is known as a maker of great prestige cars, and the results at auction definitely backs up this statement. Out of the top five most purchased cars at the Prestige Auction, four of the five were German automotive manufacturers.
So who made it to the top?
- Land Rover
Most popular model
It will probably be no surprise when we tell you that the BMW also took out the most popular model sold at auction. The BMW 3 Series stood out as a favourite in our buyer’s eyes.
Most expensive vehicles
Our Prestige Auction star cars may not be the most bought throughout our auction campaigns, but they have definitely made a massive impact.
Italian produced cars have made a huge impression on our buyers with two of the top three made in Italy.
The most expensive Prestige Night Auction cars sold were:
- Ferrari F12 – selling at auction for $515,000
- Lamborghini Murcielago – another Italian made car selling for $377,000
- McLaren 650s – a UK built car selling at auction for $308,000
So it is safe to say the German’s have mastered the art of prestige vehicles that appeal to a huge range of our customers. But, when it comes to the highest prices, the Italian’s have proven to deliver.
Our next Prestige Night Auction will be on Thursday, May 17 where you can bid on a range of prestige models. Interested car buyers shouldn’t miss this chance to buy a prestige vehicle at a great price. While a 2 door high performance sports car might not suit your lifestyle, Manheim’s prestige auction always features a great range of premium and luxury hatches, sedans, wagons and 4 wheel drives.
It’s a great opportunity to pick up any style of luxury vehicle with a wide range of late model, low km cars including Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.
Some of the stand out vehicles for our next auction even include the most popular models –
- 2014 Porsche 911 (991) GT3 2D Coupé – a low 18,600km showing with carrara white exterior
