February 12 - February 18, 2024

1. Auctions sales statistics

The volume of cars at auctions has rebounded and returned to its earlier levels, ensuring a dependable supply of vehicles. Despite this temporary dip, there have been no significant disruptions in vehicle availability. Both auctions have consistently maintained a flow of cars, contributing to seamless operations and a stable inventory for buyers.
Performance metrics, including the number of cars sold and approval ratings, have not only weathered the minor reduction in car volume but are also showing signs of improvement and growth.
In summary, insurance auto auctions provide a stable and consistent environment, with evidence of car volume returning to previous levels. Operations continue to run smoothly, and key performance indicators are not only stable but also showing positive growth trends.

2. Car of the week

My personal pick of the week!


Final bid: $51,475 USD

2023 Lucid Air Touring, where luxury and efficiency tango. Under the hood (or rather, under the spacious cabin), a 620-horsepower electric motor hums with silent power, propelling you from 0-60 mph in a brisk 3.4 seconds. But this isn't just about speed; the Touring boasts an impressive 411-mile range, letting you conquer long journeys without range anxiety. The 2023 Lucid Air Touring isn't just a car; it's a statement. It's for those who value both luxurious comfort and environmental responsibility, who appreciate cutting-edge technology and effortless performance.


3. The most interesting lots

The best cars this week that deserve your attention


Final bid: $43,750 USD

Forget whisper-quiet sedans. The 2023 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing is a wolf in sheep's clothing, roaring with 472 untamed horses under a sleek, sculpted exterior. Unleash the beast: Choose between a 6-speed manual for a pure, connected experience or a 10-speed automatic for lightning-fast shifts. Either way, you'll rocket from 0-60 mph in a heart-stopping 3.8 seconds, leaving other luxury sedans in the dust.


Final bid: $75,000 USD

The 2017 Acura NSX is a revolution, a hybrid warrior whispering efficiency while unleashing a symphony of power. Sleek lines and a low stance hint at the beast within, while the twin-turbo V6 and three electric motors combine to deliver a mind-bending 500 horsepower. Don't be fooled by the comfort, though. The NSX handles like a dream, with sharp steering, precise handling, and advanced all-wheel drive. It carves corners with confidence, leaving you grinning from ear to ear.


Final bid: $41,750 USD

2024 Lexus TX 350: Spacious Luxury, Effortless Power. Bold lines and a commanding presence make a statement, while the spacious interior accommodates families and cargo with ease. Second and third-row seating offer ample legroom and comfort, ensuring everyone enjoys the journey. Under the hood, a 2.4L turbocharged inline-4 engine hums with 275 horsepower, delivering smooth, responsive acceleration. All-wheel drive provides confident grip in any weather, while the comfortable suspension pampers even on long road trips.

4. Scam of the week

I've found cars from dealers that had the most auctions or did impressive repairs. Remember to check every vehicle of your interest at Copart and IAAI on autoAstat.

5. Cars with the most bids

Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase. It's important to note that just because a car has many bids, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best deal or in the best condition. It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
