BCA chief operating officer, Stuart Pearson

BCA Nottingham’s Top Car Sale showed further signs of strength in the luxury and supercar sector as online bidders accounted for 85% of its auction stock.

The sale, held on January 18, featured a wide selection of prestige, performance and upper executive cars including Bentley, Ferrari, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Range Rover, Aston Martin and Jaguar.
