BCA has drawn up a top 10 list of the most unusual cars to have been sold in its auction rooms in 2010.
The list ranges from a bizarre diesel powered road train to the sublime Bugatti Veyron.
‘This year’s big ticket items were a 2006 Bugatti Veyron, which went for £625,000 and a 2008 Rolls Royce Phantom, which realised £195,500,’ says Tim Naylor at BCA. ‘Both sales created a huge amount of interest with buyers registering from all over the UK and even further afield.’
The Nissan 100 NX ‘rabbit car’ which famously competed in Car Dealer‘s Bangers4Ben also formed part of the list. It, along with the other bangers, went under the hammer at BCA’s Blackbushe site and raised funds for the automotive charity BEN.
A number of ‘barn find’ classic cars, a pink smart Car supporting the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign, an ex-Justin Hawkins Honda CR-Z Hybrid Coupe, a Ford Cortina 2000GT previously featured on the BBC’s Culture Show was sold, and a fully restored Royal Mail Morris Minor van raising money for Barnados, were all sold by BCA throughout 2010.
