The various auctions at California’s Monterey Car Week have always seen notoriously high totals for their sales, but the 2015 shows seem to have been some of the highest of all. Mecum Auctions has announced their final total and top sales, showing the growth of interest in luxury cars is in no danger of slowing.
With 387 cars in total crossing their block between Aug. 13 and 15, Mecum reached a total sales amount of $44,335,001, as an Aug. 19 press release from the auction house tells us. Seven cars alone brought in $10,225,000, with each individually selling for more than $1 million – with five of those sales happening on Saturday, Aug. 15, alone.
The top sale from Mecum’s event was a 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S for $2.3 million, while a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible wasn’t far behind at $2.25 million. One of the most anticipated lots, Steve McQueen’s Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera, sold for $1.95 million. A portion of the sale of McQueen’s Porsche is being donated to The Boys Republic – read more in our June 10 article.
