Here are 10 of the most expensive prestige cars sold on Motorway in the last 12 months.
This Huracan LP 580-2 was listed on Motorway in February 2021. With an initial valuation of £107,723, the vehicle went on to make almost 8% more, securing the owner a resale price of £112,627. Given that most cars depreciate by 50% over the first three years, that’s a fantastic return after three years and 20,500 miles.
Motorway helped to sell this DB11 V8 in June 2021. The luxury car was initially valued at £98,668, and then went on to make an impressive £8,182 more, selling for £106,850. The cars low mileage over three years no doubt helped — the average car covers between 7,000 – 10,000 miles a year.
Sold in May 2021, this Taycan 4S 93KWH made a huge 18% more than the valuation price. Initially valued at £82,487, the luxury vehicle went on to achieve £97,500, over £15,000 more! The car also benefited from being very nearly new at just one-year-old, and low mileage well below the annual average of 10,000.
The R8 Plus Quattro V10 actually steals two consecutive spots of this list, coming in both fourth and fifth as the most expensive cars sold on Motorway this year. They perfectly demonstrate how age impacts depreciation and why, if you’re thinking of selling your luxury car, you should do it sooner rather than later. While this particular R8 had a higher mileage than the vehicle in our number 5 spot, it was also two years newer, and that gave it the edge when it came to achieving a higher resale value. The two-year-old, 18,500 mile R8 sold for £97,227 — 5.68% more than valued.
The second R8 Plus Quattro V10 on our list had 10,800 miles on the clock across four years, which is relatively low compared to the average. While it didn’t beat the 2-year-old model in resale value, it still sold for 6% more than expected, achieving £88,716.
This Continental GT S V8 Auto sold on Motorway in May 2021 and achieved almost 6% more than its reserve price. At six years old and a remarkably low mileage of 5,755, the luxury vehicle sold for £83,067.
Another luxury car that appears twice on our list, with the second coming in at number nine. This 911 Targa 4 sold in May 2021, achieving a huge 11% more than the reserve. At 5 years old and a low 19,000 miles, the vehicle beat the estimate of £65,000 and sold for £72,384.
One of the world’s most talked-about cars in the past year, it’s shouldn’t be surprising that a Tesla makes the top 10. This Model X 100D was sold in June 2021, making over £7,000 more than its reserve price. At three years old and relatively average mileage of 30,450, this Tesla sold for £70,159.
Our second Porsche 911 is a slightly different model, a 911 Carrera. At four years old, the car had covered 18,500 miles and was initially valued at £62,588. Surpassing its reserve by 9%, it sold for £69,248.
Last but by no means least, this Rolls-Royce Ghost V12 proves that your car may not be too old to find an interested buyer, especially if it’s from an iconic name. By far the oldest car on the list, this Ghost V12 was 11 years old when it was sold on Motorway in June 2020. That didn’t stop it from making 5% more than the reserve price, selling for £65,517.
The most expensive car ever sold on Motorway
Luxury car-lovers won’t be surprised to hear that the Lamborghini Aventador claims the top spot as Motorway’s most expensive car ever sold on their platform. The vehicle achieved a re-sale price of £220,000.
