As we kick off the new year, it’s only fitting to take a moment to drive down memory lane and pick out our favourite car sales of 2023. Here is a selection of our best and most significant cars sales from a very successful year.

Caterham 620 R

BASE jumping, free-climbing and sky-diving are some of the most extreme sports you can do to get your adrenaline pumping, but even these radical pastimes seem tame when compared to the heart-rate ramping rush from this ballistic Caterham Seven 620R.

Under the classic Seven styling lies a manic Supercharged 2.0-litre Duratec engine developing 310bhp and 297NM of torque, which may not sound much when compared to the outputs of many modern hot hatches or sports cars, but when you factor in the 620R’s anorexic 545kg dry weight, it equates to a hypercar trouncing power-to-weight figure of 568bhp-per-tonne, which is more than most multi-million pound monsters such as the Bugatti Veyron and McLaren F1!

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk – 1 of 20 UK units

Few things in life command as much attention as the sound of a big American V8 engine. But for those that crave even more open-mouthed looks, there’s this 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Sourced directly from the Dodge Charger Hellcat, the supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8 not only produces a guttural roar but also a grin-inducing 707bhp (some 66bhp more than a Lamborghini Uras) and a frankly outrageous 881 NM of torque. This weapon’s grade powerplant endows the Trackhawk with enough shove to launch its 2.4 tonnes of steroidal mass at the horizon with a 0-60mph time of just 3.5-seconds. It will also complete the quarter mile sprint in under 12-seconds and continue on to a 180mph top speed.

Audi RS3 8V Saloon – Our BIGGEST project ever

Our BIGGEST project to date and it’s one of a kind. All £42,000 of modifications commissioned by its current and previous keeper, all carried out by Automotive Addiction in-house from a standard 2017 Audi RS3 to its current state. This is a project we are proud of and we have a full YouTube series about the build on its way.

Toyota GR Yaris with £15,000 sequential gearbox

toyota yaris gr circuit pack sequential gearbox modified

This Toyota Yaris GR sold before it even hit our social media, and our first ever Yaris GR sale. This one came into stock equipped with a Kotouc 7-speed sequential gearbox retailing at £15,000. A gearbox which provides lighting quick gear shifts and an extra gear over the standard 6-speed manual. But it doesn’t stop there, this GR Yaris benefits from a Stage 1 remap producing 308PS, a CSK titanium exhaust system, TOM’s rear spoiler and bumper vents, OZ Racing Rally Racing wheels, Gazoo Racing strut brace, plus much more…

Lotus Exige Sport 410

Automotive experiences don’t come much more visceral than this. Whether it’s the exclusive retina-searing Isotope green paintwork or the white-knuckle adrenaline rush from the wailing supercharged engine, this striking Lotus Exige Sport 410 delivers like no other.

Developed directly from the track focused Exige Cup 430, the Lotus Exige Sport 410 packs advanced chassis, suspension, powertrain, and aerodynamic components from the Cup 430 that have been optimised for the Sport 410, which is designed to be the ultimate road drive with outstanding circuit capabilities – hailed as the sweet spot in the Exige model range by motoring journalists.

Ford Focus RS500 – 1 of 101 UK cars

When it comes to Fast Fords, there are few badges that convey as much significance and heritage as the RS500 moniker. Ford’s Ralley Sport models have always been at the top of the performance tree, with the original RS500 Sierra Cosworth’s dominating touring car racing the world over in the late 80s. So, when Ford saw fit to equip its swansong model for the MK2 Focus RS with the same legendary title, it was clear this was to be a very special vehicle indeed.

Only 500 individually numbered examples were produced worldwide, with just 101 available on UK shores. Instantly recognisable from the factory-applied matt black foil-wrap, each one features a more powerful version of the standard 2.5-litre turbocharged Duratec unit, which raises power from 305 to 350PS. This hike in performance comes from a significantly larger air-to-air intercooler to improve cooling; a larger air box for increased airflow; a larger diameter exhaust downpipe and an uprated fuel pump, along with updated software calibration. These upgrades were developed by Ford TeamRS in partnership with Ford-approved tuning partner Mountune Performance.

BMW G80 M3 Competition XDRIVE

The M3 Competition X-Drive is BMW’s pioneering model for all season performance. The switchable X-Drive drivetrain gives you the best of both worlds with RWD and AWD options. This particular model features ‘Ultimate Package’ ticking almost everything BMW have to offer for this Super-saloon. But not only that, this M3 is lavished in genuine BMW M-Performance carbon-fibre aerodynamic bodykit, lowered on M-Performance springs and finished in the vibrant Sea Paulo Yellow paintwork certainly makes this one stand out from the rest.

Porsche 911 992 Turbo S – A new milestone achieved

2023 was the year Automotive Addiction dived into the supercar market. and the sale of this Porsche 992 Turbo marked a new milestone for Automotive Addiction. This is the most expensive car sale Automotive Addiction has achieved.

This Porsche 992 Turbo S sold to one extremely loyal customer of ours, one who has returned to us so often we can’t keep count of how many cars we have sold to him. The happy new owner of this 911, is a true petrolhead and an avid car collector, one who has owned some of the most magnificent and iconic creations that have graced our world.

Audi RS3 8Y Saloon in Audi Exclusive San Marino Blue (UK 1 of 1)

This RS3 SOLD immediately to a customer of ours based in Scotland. He took advantage of our ‘Bespoke Services’ and took this RS3 to another level with an abundance of modifications, paint protection and security upgrades that we supplied and installed in-house prior to his collection. This is the first Audi RS3 8Y that we have modified to this level.

We carried out the following; CarPro Immortal instant self-healing paint protection film (Full exterior), CQuartz Ceramic Coating Package (Full exterior), full Maxton Design splitter kit, Automotive Passion carbon-fibre arch guards, MSS height adjustable spring kit, Forge Motorsport spacers, S5+ Tracker with immobilisation and a Ghost II immobiliser.

BMW M2 Competition with M-Performance body kit

This stylish BMW M2 Competition, enhanced with an abundance of genuine M-Performance products, inspired by motorsport, giving the M2’s appearance an outstanding presence on the streets.

It’s equipped with the M-Performance carbon fibre bonnet, front grill, rear spoiler, side skirt extensions and mirror caps. It sits pretty on the forged 763M Jet Black M-Performance Wheels, and it features a few little M-Performance accessories on the inside too making this M2 stand out from the rest.

Volkswagen Golf GTi Clubsport S

Hot hatches are not usually known for their collectible investment potential, as the numbers manufactured are just far too numerous. But one model that doesn’t suffer from this kind of over exposure is this track-ready 2016 Golf GTi Clubsport S. 

Only 400 examples of this tarmac-terrorist were made worldwide, with just 150 available in the UK, making this stunning example, complete with numbered build plaque denoting number 119 of 400, one of the rarest hot hatches money can buy.

Porsche 911 991.2 GT3RS

What is arguably the purest form of the 911 GT3 RS, a race car for the road, is this 991.2 generation. This immaculate example didn’t come short of an incredible specification with the Clubsport Package, PDLS, front axle lift, Chrono Sport package, plus much more.

The 991.2 GT3 RS, with its distinctive design and race-ready performance, is a true embodiment of Porsche’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible on the road and the track. From its facelift aerodynamic enhancements to the finely tuned 4.0L flat-six engine, every detail of the GT3 RS is meticulously crafted to deliver an exhilarating driving experience.

Audi S3 8P – The cheapest car of 2023

It’s not very often we see an Audi S3 pass through our showroom doors, especially a 2007 8P model which is almost never to be seen nowadays. But when we do, it’s a 530BHP Ecotune Stage 3 monster with a fully forged engine. This marks the milestone for one of the cheapest cars we have sold in the past year, and by far one of the fastest.

Mercedes-Benz CLA45S AMG Plus

A Mercedes-Benz CLA45S AMG Plus which was previously owned by Automotive Addiction, as soon as we acquired this vehicle we immediately installed Satin-Finish XPEL-STEALTH Self-Healing Paint Protection Film to the entire vehicle including the Door Shuts and Infotainment Interior Screens. We applied Edition-1 AMG Graphics and Black AMG Badges to finish the look, then subsequently Ceramic Coated every single surface in our Detailing Studio, giving this baby AMG the ultimate Automotive Addiction Protection package.

BMW G80 M3 Competition XDRIVE

Introduced in the late 1980s, Daytona Violet Purple quickly became an iconic colour option in BMW’s extensive palette. It was initially offered on the legendary BMW E30 and as the years passed, Daytona Violet Purple continued to captivate automotive enthusiasts worldwide and then was offered as a BMW Individual option to later models. Its unique rich purple creates an alluring appearance, setting it apart from traditional colour choices, and we were extremely pleased to offer this pristine 2022 BMW G80 M3 Competition with the M-Performance carbon fibre kit in Daytona Violet Purple.

Audi RSQ8 Vorsprung

This simply sensational brand-new Audi RSQ8 was offered pre-registered with only delivery mileage and the transportation wraps still intact. This crucial defensive shielding is necessary to protect the mystical Venetian Violet Purple paintwork, an Audi-Exclusive finish that not only required a two-and-a-half-year wait time, but is currently unavailable to specify from the factory, as all Audi-Exclusive allocations have now been fulfilled by Audi, meaning this example is believed to be the only one in the UK in this unique colourway.

Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport

Incredibly engaging to drive with precise steering and a reactive chassis, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport offers a huge emotional connection whether on the road or your favourite race circuit, the latter benefitting from the 718’s revised aerodynamics and underbody diffuser that produce 50-percent more downforce, when compared to the older 981 GT4 variant. Presented in an eye-popping shade of Miami Blue, this particular example has also been lavished with over £19,000 of highly desirable factory optional extras. 

Aui RS4 B9.5 Avant Carbon Black

The RS4 Avant offers an unrivalled fusion of practicality, performance, luxury, and legendary four-wheel drive technology, which has ensured that the model has remained at the cutting edge of the segment since the launch of the very first one in 1999. This stunning 2022-model B9.5 RS4, drenched in a flawless coat of Glacier white paint, represents the latest and greatest incarnation of this halo model, and with just one previous keeper and 5500 miles from new, it is no less than factory fresh.
