For anyone who travelled anywhere near the Olympic games during July and August, you can’t have missed the fleets of gleaming brand new BMW cars used to transport the athletes and VIP’s around London.
The fleet was largely made up of the most efficient 320d and 520d models which are very popular in the UK.
But just what will happen to all those cars once the games are over ?
Will we see a flood of nearly new cars for sale at bargain prices to Londoners ?
Unfortunately it appears not.
All of the cars used during the Olympic games are going to be returned to BMW UK.
A BMW spokesman said
“Post games, the vehicles will be returned to BMW and in most instances sold as Approved Used Vehicles over a period of time to our corporate partners, employees and the London 2012 organising committee and volunteers.”
So, unless you are lucky enough to be a member of this list of individuals, it looks like there will be no bargains for London residents.
