Hughes v Pendragon Sabre Ltd trading as Porsche Centre Bolton

Contract – Sale of goods. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the claimant's appeal in respect of his claim brought against the defendant Porsche dealer for damages for breach of an agreement to sell a limited edition vehicle, subject only to a condition that a vehicle be allocated to the defendant, and awarded him damages of £35,000. If there was an agreement for the sale of a vehicle to the claimant, and if there had been a collateral contract that the claimant would be first in the queue if Porsche supplied one to the defendant, the defendant had been in breach of contract when it had sold the one vehicle it had been allocated to someone else.
