Armored Audi A8 tops list of government vehicles up for auction

The full list of more than 200 vehicles to be auctioned by the federal government this month — from semi-tractors to farm tractors — has been published online.

Armored vehicles, cars, motorcycles, buses, tractors and semi trailers are among the vehicles listed, eight of which are valued at more than 1 million pesos (US $52,000).

The priciest vehicle on the list is Lot 1, a 2012 armored Audi A8 valued at 1.9 million pesos (US $99,500).

For truckers, there’s a 2016 Volvo semi-tractor and trailer whose value of 1.61 million pesos makes it the second most expensive.

Cheapest ride on auction is a 2003 Chevrolet Cheyenne pickup worth just 29,400 pesos, while for bikers there’s a 2013 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 valued at 45,300 pesos.

The federal government anticipates taking in 100 million pesos ($5.24 million), money that will help fund a new security force to be called the national guard.

The auction will take place on February 23 and 24 at the Santa Lucía air force base in México state.
