RV8 sold at Barons' auction yesterday

Barons held their classic car auction at Sandown Park in Esher yesterday and an RV8 was up for sale.

The catalogue said the RV8 "was reimported from Japan in 2006 with 19,490 km (12,000 miles) from new by a UK RV8 specialist. The mileometer now reads 6,000 miles since reimport, making it 18,000 miles from new, with mileage history verifiable online from MOT testing reports". During the auction of the car there were two enthusiastic bidders which drove the bids up very rapidly from a starting bid of just £7,000 until the hammer went down at £15,000. With a buyer’s premium of 10% plus VAT that was a purchase cost of £16,800.

Barons are a friendly and professional classic car auction house. They have auctions at around every seven weeks at Sandown Park or Kempton Park racecourses. Barons
