Convertibles’ seasonal shift at BCA

British Car Auctions (BCA) is banking on good weather ahead of its first auction of the year for convertible cars, to be held in Nottingham on Thursday. BCA typically holds its first auction of convertibles in February or March, ahead of a rise in value around May, as, according to Tim Naylor of BCA, the market picks up with the weather. Over 230 convertibles and roadsters will be on offer, including 161 BMWs, more than 50 Minis, and a selection of Audi, Jaguar XK, Lotus Elise, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche from leasing company Alphabet.

British Car Auctions (BCA) is banking on good weather ahead of its first auction of the year for convertible cars, to be held in Nottingham on Thursday.

BCA typically holds its first auction of convertibles in February or March, ahead of a rise in value around May, as, according to Tim Naylor of BCA, “the market picks up with the weather”.

Over 230 convertibles and roadsters will be on offer, including 161 BMWs, more than 50 Minis, and a selection of Audi, Jaguar XK, Lotus Elise, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche from leasing company Alphabet.

Naylor, who has written for Motor Finance on the seasonal affect on car sales, expects the models to draw a healthy turnout but, speaking on Wednesday, concedes his only concern would be “if it snows tomorrow”.
