March 18 - March 24, 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: $49,750 USD

That's the 2022 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo 4, an electric evolution for the adventurous soul.

All-wheel drive and increased ground clearance ensure you can explore beyond the pavement, all while experiencing the thrill of a Porsche. Inside, luxury reigns supreme. Plush Porsche seats cradle you in comfort, while a panoramic sunroof bathes the spacious cabin in light. There's ample cargo room for your gear, making it ideal for active families or weekend


3. The most interesting lots

The best cars this week that deserve your attention


Final bid: $134,000 USD

The 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia Spider isn't just a convertible, it's a bare-knuckle boxing match disguised as a drop-top. Imagine the sleek curves of the iconic F430, sculpted for pure aerodynamic fury. But unlike its tamer cousin, the Scuderia Spider sheds weight and gains power for a truly uncompromising driving experience. Beneath the folding roof (which disappears in a mere 14 seconds) lies a raging 4.3L V8 kicking out 375 horsepower. This isn't a car for the faint of heart. The Scuderia screams with a ferocity that demands respect, urging you to push its limits on every corner.

2023 AUDI RS Q8

Final bid: $70,775 USD

The 2023 Audi RS Q8 isn't your average SUV. Imagine a sleek, muscular form hinting at the power within. Under the hood lies a monstrous 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 growling with 600 horsepower, ready to launch you forward with neck-snapping acceleration. This Audi isn't shy about its performance. It devours corners with laser-sharp precision thanks to its advanced all-wheel drive system and a sophisticated suspension that keeps you glued to the road. It's a luxury SUV that can hang with the best sports cars on the track.

2022 BMW X3 M

Final bid: $48,000 USD

The 2022 BMW X3 M isn't your typical X3. Forget the usual comfort-focused options. This X3 boasts a muscular presence and a heart yearning for the racetrack. Budget-Friendly M Power: While it might be the base trim in the X3 M lineup, it still packs a punch. A 3.0L twin-turbocharged engine throws down 480 horsepower, launching you from 0-60 mph in a thrilling 4.1 seconds. Compared to higher X3 M trims, you might miss some luxury features, but gain affordability.

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.

Selling this vehicle will be difficult. The previous condition is just horrific!I would stay away from it!

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.
