Open-tops for sale at car auction

Around 400 convertible cars are to be auctioned off at a special event this month, British Car Auctions has announced.

The auction will be held at the Blackbushe Auction Centre in Surrey on April 17 and will feature cars valued between £4,000 and £40,000 entered direct by Lex Autolease and Black Horse. The cars on offer will be a mix of business and ex-lease and finance vehicles.

The high-end models include a Maserati Grandsport V8 Spyder 4.2, an Aston Martin DB9 V12 Volante and a Jaguar XKR Supercharged 4.2. At the other end of the spectrum will be a Ford Focus CC-3 and a Mazda MX-5 Niseko.

British Car Auctions' Alan Gupwell said: "The specialist convertible market has a strong following with buyers and themed events such as this create a great deal of interest. Lex Autolease and Black Horse are offering a superb selection of convertibles and roadsters in this sale and now could be the time to get the car of your dreams."
