While buying a car online is not quite like buying a CD or even a computer, there is still much to be gained from investigating the “network of all networks.” Those without a web presence may not agree, but car dealers who have wisely put their stock online claim that internet shopping can save buyers significant time and money.
This site offers the possibility to buy Renault, Hyundai and Citroe¨n cars. In the first “room” of a selected brand, you will find links to models and versions, in alphabetic order, but no indication of class. After you choose the model, you can check basic options, choose an exact type, additional options and colors, etc. You can then send out the order, with your name and contact information, but as the order is only preliminary based on the website’s information, a representative of the firm will probably contact you to negotiate the particulars. Beyond that, it is impossible to find any information about how purchasing over superauto.cz actually works.
This section of Atlas devoted to everything about motorsport also offers the option of buying second-hand automobiles, as the server cooperates with roughly 70 dealers in the country.

When you make your decision, just fill out a form with your personal information and send it. Afterwards the dealer’s representative will contact you.
