A Bugatti Veyron, selling for £625,000, was the crown jewel in a sell-out sale of over 400 sports cars, peformance cars, and motorcycles at British Car Auctions' sale at Blackbushe on Saturday 5th June 2010. The stock was entered for sale by Lex Autolease and Black Horse, representing one of the most valuable open sales of contemporary vehicles ever staged in the UK. Nearly 400 buyers registered for the sale at Blackbushe, with a further 231 bidding via BCA’s Live Online internet service. Every vehicle on offer was sold in the sale which turned over a phenomenal £7m.The undoubted star of the Fast & Furious sale was the 2006 Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4. As BCA’s UK Operations Director Simon Henstock brought down the hammer on the Bugatti, there was a spontaneous round of applause from the buyers crammed into Auction Hall 1 at Blackbushe. It represented a UK record value for a modern production car at auction, and the highest value ever achieved by BCA on one vehicle.
