  • Ten Most Expensive Cars Sold Yesterday

  • How All The Top Companies Faired Against Each Other

  • Unique & Special Cars Up For Auction

  • Vroomy Deal Of The Day

Yesterday marked a 'unique' milestone for us here at The Daily Vroom. For the first time since we launched (all of 2 weeks!!) two of the top 10 most expensive cars sold on that day were priced below $100,000. Additionally, the combined sales value of the top 10 cars reached a record low of $1,590,652.

Yesterday we touched on how sales were down across the board for the last few weeks, is this trend continuing or could it be that Monday tends to be a slower day for sales. Lets see what today bring us.


In analysing all the online auction websites' sales yesterday, I couldn't help but notice a clear frontrunner in terms of volume: Bring A Trailer. For those who've been with us since the beginning, you may observe that this marks Car & Classic's debut appearance in one of our tables. If you're not yet acquainted with Car & Classic, they're a UK-based platform, much like Collecting Cars, with a fascinating origin story that we'll dish on in a future newsletter.

A spirited rivalry seems to be brewing between these two British titans. However, it's worth mentioning that the average selling price on Collecting Cars consistently outshines Car & Classic's and, as of yesterday, even eclipsed BaT by over $20K!

Should BaT be quaking in their boots? Well, not quite, as the sales volume between the two isn't even in the same league.

Digging deeper reveals that Bring A Trailer continues to reign supreme when it comes to the top 10 most expensive cars sold. In fact analysing the top 5 sales of the year, only one was not Bring A Trailer and that one was actually Pcarmarket! So, for now, the throne remains unthreatened.
