In a first paring for the South African i-bidder.com online auction platform and Aucor’s monthly super-car auction, a high value super car sold to an online bidder live at auction.
The confirmed winning bid was R240,000 (£13,372 / $22,452 / € 16,523) for a Mercedes SLK 55AMG at the 31st May 2014 auction.
Aucor has recently introduced live online bidding at their auctions in conjunction with i-bidder.com. The i-bidder.com technology allows the auctioneer to accept live bids from the internet as well as the saleroom, whilst simultaneously streaming the auction live to Internet bidders around the world.
The online aspect of the sale added to the regular excitement of a live auction with multiple Internet bidders going head to head across many of the vehicles up for sale. Private buyers and dealers alike are expected to log on for next month’s auction and with the highest Internet underbid at R1,2 million in the May sale, online bidders are proving fearless in spending their money online.
