For their final auction of the 2018 Season, Barrett-Jackson had the hottest action on the Las Vegas Strip. Our booth was next to Shelby American, and we were able to enjoy the event with old friends. The 3-day event came to an end Saturday night, with a record total of $32.9 Million in sales. With a sell-through rate of 100%, Craig Jackson and his team found new homes for 733 cars and 400 pieces of automobilia.
Celebrities and athletes pushed prices to unprecedented levels. This was easily seen in a 1997 Acura Integra Type R that sold for $63,800. Other highlights included a Porsche 918 for $1.76 Million and a 2018 McLaren 720S for $352,000. A 1999 example of the Shelby Series1 sold for $205,000, shocking everyone in the crowd! We couldn’t do this without our clients, so Fusion Luxury Motors displayed a Corvette-powered Defender next to their new line of aircraft-inspired furniture. Their other stunner was a Widebody Ferrari 488 GTB.
Lamborghini of Las Vegas allowed us to display a new Huracan Performante next to a new Aventador, and Ronald McDonald House was selling raffle tickets to their wild 1969 Camaro. A new Vanderhall Venice Speedster next to a new Airstream Interstate allowed us to offer something for everyone. Our hats are off to Z-Clip and Tire Stickers.com who has been supporting our events for years. This marks the end of Barrett-Jackson’s 47th year in the business and it only gets bigger every year. We’ll see you in Scottsdale in January!
