All ten cars sold for more than the total price of the CAP 'clean' valuation. The most popular car was a 140PS SEAT Alhambra SE 2.0 TDI CR Ecomotive in Reflex Silver, sold for £23,700 with nearly 10,000 miles on the clock.

The first official approved used examples of the SEAT Alhambra have gone under the hammer in a closed auction for SEAT UK dealers at the Fleet Auction Group in Coalville, Leicestershire.

A head to head auction with more than 25 SEAT dealers saw bids for the ten '60' plate cars rise way above CAP's predicted used car prices.

All ten cars sold for more than the total price of the CAP 'clean' valuation. The most popular car was a 140PS SEAT Alhambra SE 2.0 TDI CR Ecomotive in Reflex Silver, sold for £23,700 with nearly 10,000 miles on the clock.

David Ardern, SEAT UK Used Car Manager, said: "Interest in these cars was really unprecedented, with dealers falling over themselves to get hold of one.

"In the notoriously hard-nosed world of used car buying and selling I can't remember a time when a number of SEAT cars have sold for so much beyond their CAP valuations. I think that tells you all you need to know about just how popular our new Alhambra is!"

Hatfield SEAT's Marc Peck was amongst the bidders, he said: "Interest in the new Alhambra is running at record levels in our showroom with a very healthy order bank for new cars.

"Naturally, that interest is feeding through into the used car market and that's why I was so keen to attend the SEAT UK auction."
