Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Aston Martins among the cars sold via Motorway this year

Ferrari F8

Motorway set a new record last week when it sold a nearly-new Ferrari F8 to a dealer for £235,383.

It’s the most expensive car ever to be sold via the platform.

Motorway has seen record numbers of all types of cars going into its daily online sales, with volumes exceeding 1,000 vehicles a day.  Recently, Motorway has seen  a strong number of high-performance cars hitting the platform.

On the back of its record sale, Motorway has revealed its Top 10 most expensive cars sold so far this year. In second place, behind the Ferrari, was an Aston Martin DBS which sold in January for almost £160,000. This was closely followed by another Ferrari in January which went for £142,000. 

Tom Leathes, CEO at Motorway said: “Fans of supercars frustrated with lengthy wait times for new cars have turned to the used car market instead. Dealers looking for quality stock to meet this demand know that Motorway is the go-to place for acquiring the best used cars out there.  This nearly new Ferrari F8 with great spec and low mileage is just another example of the incredible stock available to our dealers. With no middlemen involved, our dealers can stock up on privately owned cars across all price brackets without leaving their dealership. 

“What makes it even easier is the saved searches and personalised stock alerts that we introduced last year - notifying dealers when there is stock on the platform that meets their specific needs so whether they are looking for high performance cars, SUVs or budget hatchbacks, they never miss out.”

Motorway more than doubled its used car sales revenues to £1.7 billion, in 2022.

The automotive marketplace, which allows car retailers to bid on cars sold by private customers in an online process resulting in collection from their home or workplace, said that its acceleration in growth had made it the “go-to platform to transact online”.

The number of verified dealers in Motorway’s nationwide network swelled from 3,000 to over 5,000 last year. 

A WeBuyAnyCar complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) resulted in a ban on Motorway TV and radio adverts which claimed it could offer motorists “up to £1,000 more” for their used car.

Despite a clause on the Motorway website which showed the statement was backed by a survey of 2,079 customers who sold their car on Motorway between March 1 and July 22 2021, the Constellation Automotive-owned car buying business challenged whether the claim was “misleading and could be substantiated”.
