Reserve price yet to be met in online auction

Wednesday 7 July 2004 @ 15:42 - GMT

With the excitement of Euro 2004 and Wimbledon Tennis behind us, now attention turns to the sale of Elton's old car. Spectators and serious bargain hunting bidders are encircling the online auction.

 

With just four days to go before the hammer falls, the online auction of Elton's Rolls-Royce on eBay still has not quite mustered the reserve price of £14,000 being sought by current owner Brad Hope.

The car and related Elton photos can be viewed at:

The bidding tactics are likely to hot up more than the car's engine later, as the July 11, 2004, deadline looms. Already there has been a lot of persistent interest from a bidder calling themselves "property-investments-uk". In total, nine bids have been placed so far, with the first bid at £12,000, just over the half-way through the 10-day auction.
