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.

The 2014 McLaren MP4-12C Spider isn't just a drop-top supercar, it's a technological marvel.

The best cars this week that deserve your attention


Final bid: $40,250 USD

Dominate the road with the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. This isn't a sedan, it's a muscle car wolf in sheep's clothing. Unleash the fury of a supercharged engine, leaving stoplights a distant memory. With its widebody stance and aggressive design, it turns heads and breaks necks. Buckle up and experience the untamed thrill – the Hellcat is a force to be reckoned with.

Imagine a rocket masquerading as a station wagon. That's the 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant. This high-performance beast combines everyday functionality with exhilarating power. It devours corners and stretches of highway with equal ease, all while offering space for your gear and loved ones.

The 2019 BMW M5 is a business suit with a hidden agenda. This seemingly ordinary luxury sedan transforms into a four-door monster with a tap of the pedal. Unbelievable power lurks beneath the hood, promising exhilarating performance that defies its sophisticated exterior. It's a statement of power and luxury, a machine that dominates the road while turning heads wherever it goes.

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.

2021 RAM 1500

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.
