A-List Celeb Cars Sell For Three Times More Than Their Price

The norm is that a used car is supposed to sell at a price less than its original price. If you are lucky, then you may be able to sell your car at a price that you paid for it, but usually used cars are devalued over time.

However, being a British A-list celebrity has its own perks, one of which includes being able to sell your used vehicle at a price which is three times more than what you paid for it. These A-list celebrities who have made millions of pounds by selling their used cars include Katie Price, the Queen, David Beckham and many more.

Usually, the selling prices of these vehicles are kept a secret for privacy reasons, but a group of motor experts and traders have revealed them, keeping the identifies private of the fans who have paid heavily to purchase these ex-celeb cars.

A trading company named the Auto Trader came up with a list of the top ten celebrity cars and compared their sale price with another car of the same model and same value, but without the A-list celebrity tag.

The results were unexpectedly shocking as it was found that the celebrity cars were able to sell at a price which was 241% higher than the selling price of the regular model.

Given below is a list of some of the most prominent A-list celebrities who were able to make a hefty amount in profit by selling their used cars along with a comparison with the actual sale price of the vehicle, clearly highlighting how much value these celebrities added to these vehicles simply because they were associated with them.

The internationally acclaimed celebrity and the favorite football player of England has reportedly sold his BMW 6 Series for a whopping price of £75,000. However, the actual selling price of the BMW 6 Series is around £30,000.

Katie Price was able to sell her Range Rover for £70,000 whose actual sale price is approximately £20,500. However, when it comes to Katie Price’s hot pink Range Rover with a clock that has Swarovski embellishments on it, then it sells for £50,000 more than what it is actually worth.
