The event took place in "The Silverstone Wing", a brand new £26 million pit, paddock and conference facility recently opened at the famous race track.
The Nissan Sale featured a total of 144 cars offered direct from the manufacturer in a live auction at Silverstone. The cars were pre-sale prepared and imaged by BCA company JTK Automotive and the sale was staged by the BCA Measham on-site team.
A total of 63 Nissan dealers registered for the sale, including 15 bidding via BCA's Live Online service.
A comprehensive selection of vehicles was offered, including Micra, Qashqai, X-Trail and Note alongside the debut Juke models. A total of 135 cars sold for a 93.75% conversion that generated £1.6 million turnover, equivalent to 103.78% of CAP Clean.
Among the strong sellers, Juke averaged 107.64% of CAP Clean while new Micra sold for an average of 100.56%.
Martin Marks, Nissan's remarketing manager, said 'This was an innovative event that presented the new Juke to our dealers as a used car for the first time. The strong attendance and the confident bidding throughout the sale underlines the desirability of the Nissan range and demonstrates the commitment of our dealer network towards used cars.'For more of the latest industry news, click here.
