When Hamilton Honda in New Jersey began offering service on Sundays, some questioned whether people would even come to the dealership. But six years later, the dealership’s service department is busier than ever and has helped the business buck the trend of declining car sales.
The Hamilton car sales team recently supported the Robbinsville Irish Heritage Association and township officials in their 7th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade by donating two brand-new Honda Pilots to pull the bands and floats in the event. The team is happy to be a part of the community and enjoys sponsoring events such as this one.
While the most expensive Formula 1 car ever sold was Juan Manuel Fangio’s 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196 at auction for £19 million, Hamilton’s sale of his 2013 Mercedes suggests that modern F1 cars are becoming more collectible. The car – chassis number 04 – was driven by Hamilton at 14 of the 19 races in that season and helped him secure his first win for Mercedes-AMG.
The price at which the Mercedes was sold was well above RM Sotheby’s estimate of $10 million to $15 million, suggesting that the market is growing for these cars. This is especially true since the next year saw Formula 1 move to V6 hybrid motors, which have boosted performance and created more exciting racing. Only a few of these cars remain in private hands, with most owned by the Mercedes-AMG Petronas team, its chief executive Toto Wolff or Hamilton himself. Hamilton car sales
