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!

2022 RAM 1500

Final bid: $71,500 USD

The 2022 RAM 1500 TRX SB isn't your ordinary pickup truck. It's a fire-breathing monster wrapped in a muscular shell, built to conquer any terrain you throw at it. Under the hood lies a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine pumping out a monstrous 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. This translates to neck-snapping acceleration and the ability to tow or haul almost anything you need. Forget pavement. The TRX SB boasts exceptional ground clearance, massive off-road tires, and FOX shock absorbers. It tackles rocks, mud, and sand with ease, making it a true off-road dominator.


3. The most interesting lots

The best cars this week that deserve your attention


Final bid: $79,000 USD

The 2022 BMW Alpina XB7 isn't just another luxury SUV; it's a powerful statement piece with a touch of European sophistication. Imagine the sleek, imposing presence of the BMW X7, subtly enhanced by Alpina's signature design cues. But the real magic lies beneath the hood. A mighty 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 engine, tuned by Alpina themselves, produces a whopping 621 horsepower. This isn't just about brute force; it's about effortless acceleration and a thrilling driving experience that pushes the boundaries of an SUV.


Final bid: $69,500 USD

The 2013 Bentley Mulsanne wasn't just a car, it was a rolling statement of luxury. The Mulsanne wasn't about chasing trends; it focused on refined elegance that would never go out of style. Under the hood purred a mighty 6.75L twin-turbocharged V8 engine, effortlessly propelling this grand tourer down the road. The focus wasn't on neck-breaking acceleration, but on smooth, powerful performance that whispered luxury with every press of the pedal. From the polished wood accents to the soft leather upholstery, skilled artisans ensured that every detail exuded elegance and quality.


Final bid: $44,000 USD

The 2020 Land Rover Defender P400 110 First Edition wasn't just another Defender; it was a celebration of Land Rover's off-road legacy with a touch of exclusivity. This special edition marked the return of the legendary Defender nameplate. It boasted unique design elements and a limited production run, making it a coveted collector's item for Land Rover enthusiasts. Special exterior touches like a unique paint color, distinctive wheels, and "First Edition" badges set this Defender apart from the crowd.

Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase.

It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
