The Confederation of Australian Motor Sports (CAMS) has bought new headquarters in Canterbury.

CAMS has acquired auto group Worldmark's office building at 275 Canterbury Road (above).

It cost $6.72 million, having last traded for $675,000 in 1995.

The sports motoring group sold its existing headquarters at 851 Dandenong Road, East Malvern for $8 million last year (below).

CAMS had paid $1,781,000 in 1997.

There was no room to expand in the building which was in need of a significant upgrade.

The 40 staff will move in March.

Meanwhile, after selling its St Kilda Road headquarters for $95.38 million, the auto industry's local lobby group, The Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce, has snapped up a North Melbourne site for $8.8 million.

It has bought 644-658 Victoria Street after it passed in at auction.

The property, home to Melbourne City Garage, is a vast 1618 square metre garage where the VACC will construct a four-level office with a rooftop garden. 

The VACC is leasing back 464 St Kilda Road - held for 60 years - from new co-owners Abacus and Wing Tai Holdings.
