THE festive season is coming early for those lucky few who manage to get their hands on their dream cars at Aucor's final supercar auction for 2009.

"We're ending off 2009 with a bang and have a superb range of supercars and exotics for those wishing to spoil themselves or a loved one with a well-deserved end-of-year gift," says Aucor MD Shannon Winterstein.

"We've amassed an awesome selection of top quality, low-mileage vehicles and we're anticipating that this auction will be the most exciting one we've had this year.

"For anyone in the market for a Mercedes-Benz, we will have almost every class on the floor, from a 2005 A180 CDI to a 2007 SLK55 AMG, and everything in between," he says.

He adds that there are two notable vehicles - an E500 Coupe and an S500, both 2009 models and virtually brand-new with less than 1000kms on the clock. There is a 2009 Audi R8 which has only clocked up 600kms, a 2007 Porsche Cayenne GTS and a low-mileage 2008 Porsche 997 GT2, as well as a 996 Turbo.

Aston Martin aficionados can choose between a DB9 coupé and Vantage coupé, both 2006 models, and Ferrari fans can bid on a 2002 F360 Spyder.

There are four Range Rover Sport 4.2 V8 Supercharged beauties which will fall under the auction hammer and buyers can choose from a 2005, 2006, 2007 or a 2008 model.

Winterstein says the cherry on the top has to be a trio of stunners from the Lamborghini stable. "This will be the place for anyone looking for high performance with a serious dose of glamour."

He says there should be competitive bidding for the models on offer -a yellow 1995 Diablo, an orange 2004 Gallardo and the piece de resistance, a yellow 2007 Gallardo Spyder.

Buyers looking for a bit of fun can consider a brand-new Ski Supreme V232, a 2008 Harley Davidson 1200 Sportster or a Yamaha Wave Runner.

The auction takes place tomorrow (Saturday) at 12:30 at Aucor Midrand, 562 - 15th Road, Midrand, with viewing the same morning or today from 9am to 5pm.

Anyone requiring additional information can call Aucor's national call centre on 0861 28 28 46 or log onto www.aucor.com for a detailed listing of the items.
