A ‘G-R8’ result for Vindis at Manheim
Manheim’s Northampton auction centre achieved a great result for the Vindis Group when it sold a 59-plate Audi R8 5.2 V10 FSI for more than £10,000 over guide price at its weekly sale for the motor group.
The 517bhp supercar, first registered in November 2009 and with just over 52,000 miles on the clock, sold for more than £50,000 – far exceeding the guide price for the model and year.
While the car sold quickly at Manheim Northampton, the auction centre’s high performance wasn’t quite as quick as the 3.8 seconds the R8 takes to get from zero to 62mph! The V10 Audi is capable of nearly 200mph, where the law permits.
The Vindis Group is a family owned business that is committed to delivering a personal and professional service. It has a large network of car and commercial vehicle retailers, spanning a total of five counties.
Peter Toop, Group Sales Manager at Vindis Group: “When the market enters a more seasonally challenging period, it’s great to see results like the Audi R8 V10 sale at Manheim Northampton. The car was presented superbly by the team on site, which no doubt helped it to achieve such a stunning result.”
Tim Hudson, Managing Director of Manheim Remarketing, said: “Our auction centre team members across the country are committed to delivering superb service and great results for our customers. The striking result achieved by our team in Northampton on this equally eye-catching car shows that we are able to continue to deliver high performance, even in a more challenging market.”
