The consumer has no charges whatsoever to pay. During August, the site also sold cars ranging from two luxury Porsche Macans for just under £40,000 all the way down to a Ford KA for £600.

The Audi R8 deal added to a record-breaking month for tootle in August, with the site selling almost £1.3million-worth of cars. This figure means the business is growing at an average rate of 52 per cent month-on-month, with hundreds of new dealers having signed up since the brand’s TV advertising push in July.

COO of tootle, Mike Bishop, said: ‘We are delighted to announce that August was our record-breaking month, as we continue to ramp up momentum ahead of our Series A funding round.

‘’s recent achievements have put the business in a great position to go from strength to strength, with the site continually getting the best price for both consumers and dealers alike.’
