July 9, 2024

June 24 - June 30, 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.


Top sellers of the week


State Farm Insurance was the leader in sales this week. They sold 15,550 cars. They are considered the best insurance company to buy from. Progressive Insurance followed with 12,323 cars sold. Geico insuranse sells cars at the highest bid, so it's worth considering them as a seller next time you're bidding.

2. Car of the week

My personal pick of the week!

2010 AUDI R8

Final bid: $40,500 USD

The 2010 Audi R8 5.2 is a head-turning masterpiece with a heart of thunder. A mid-engine marvel with a screaming 5.2L V10, promising exhilarating performance and a sound that sends shivers down your spine. This German beast isn't just about raw power; all-wheel drive ensures grip on any corner, while the iconic design guarantees you'll be the center of attention wherever you go. It's a legend for driving purists, a perfect blend of power, precision, and unforgettable looks.


3. The most interesting lots

The best cars this week that deserve your attention


Final bid: $43,000 USD

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye isn't for the faint of heart. It's a fire-breathing demon unleashed on four wheels. A vintage muscle car silhouette injected with steroids and a supercharged heart. With more horsepower than most supercars, it devours drag strips and highways with equal ferocity. Be warned, the Redeye's power is a force to be reckoned with, but for those who crave exhilarating thrills and a touch of nostalgia, it's a muscle car legend reborn.

1986 PORSCHE 911

Final bid: $28,000 USD

This iconic silhouette embodies the spirit of air-cooled Porsche, offering a thrillingly direct driving experience. The raw connection you get from a rear-engine layout, precise handling that begs for skilled driving, and a connection to the road that modern cars often lack. While not a horsepower monster by today's standards, the Carrera rewards driver finesse. It's a time capsule of automotive excellence, a timeless classic for those who crave the golden age of Porsche.


Final bid: $20,000 USD

The 2008 Bentley Continental GTC is open-air opulence in motion. A timeless convertible design draped in British luxury. This head-turning Bentley isn't just about the elegant drop-top experience; a powerful W12 engine promises exhilarating performance beneath the summer sky. With a spacious interior handcrafted from the finest materials, it's a rolling statement piece for those who appreciate a luxurious escape on any winding road.

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.
