The Top Gear Festival powered by Shell V-Power is one of the most exciting happenings on Durban’s motoring calendar and Aucor is proud to be the auction partner for this year’s event.  Aucor at Top Gear Festival will play host to two auctions where a line-up of supercars, exotics, and luxury sedans, coupes, SUVs and 4x4S will be sold to the highest bidder.

These auctions present the ideal opportunity for car lovers to drive away in the car of their dreams - like a Ferarri California, just like The Stig drove on his visit to Durban this week.  The rest of the lots are to be announced, but if these follow the pattern set by Aucor’s regular supercar auctions, the auction floor will be packed with beauties ranging from A to Z - anything from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Range Rover and Z3s, plus everything in between.

The Top Gear Festival will feature two auctions - supercars on Saturday 16th June, and on the following day, Sunday 17th June, a prestige car auction of models of cars featured on the Top Gear TV show Cool Wall.  On Friday 15th June, Aucor will run a charity auction at the Tribute Dinner with net proceeds being donated to charities in support of Aucor CSI programmes.

Car aficionados in the market for a stunning set of wheels may just be in luck as proved by a recent supercar auction held at Aucor’s Midrand branch in April. The auction was testimony to the value that savvy buyers can realise.  The highlight of the auction was the sale of a Ferrari California which went for R2,2 million, and close behind it was the sale of a new shape 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 which fetched R965 000, well under the retail price.

Aucor is also seeing a strong demand for wrap cars and is finding that it can’t get enough luxury 4x4s on the auction floor.

Aucor is a national leader in the auctioneering industry, and takes top billing when it comes to car auctions.   Established in 1967, it literally has decades of experience in vehicle auctions.  Adding to that that is its thorough understanding of supercars and exotics – having pioneered supercar auctions years ago - Aucor has an in-depth knowledge of both the automotive industry and the auction process.
