Winners at the Used Car Awards can relive their night of success in this year’s special review video.

Fronted by Used Car Awards host Mike Brewer, the video looks back at the ceremony held at The Brewery in London last week (November 29)

The awards – sponsored by Black Horse – celebrated the very best in the used car industry and handed out 30 trophies.


The sell-out event saw dealers large and small pick up gongs for their achievements during a trying year.

Sytner was our Dealer Group of the Year, Marshall Motor Group chief executive Daksh Gupta was handed the Outstanding Achievement award and supercar dealer Tom Hartley picked up the Lifetime Achievement award.

Hartley gave a moving speech when he accepted the award saying he wouldn’t give it away for ‘£10bn’.

In the speech, a clip of which you can see in the video, Hartley said: ‘This is a very special moment for me.


‘I’ve given the car business my life as a kid, a boy, as a man, as a husband and now as a grandad. This is the icing on the cake.

‘You have to earn these and they’re priceless.

‘I’ll tell you what, I wouldn’t take £10bn for this, never mind £10m.’

Wheeler Dealer star and Used Car Awards host Mike Brewer added: ‘It was an amazing night and superb to get everyone back together again in person.

‘It was clear to see how much the awards meant to people on the night and that speech by Tom Hartley just summed it up. We can’t wait to do it all over again next year!’
