With the help of Mr. Worldwide, Barrett-Jackson had their best auction ever.
With nearly 2,000 vehicles sold at a 100% sell-through rate, this past Scottsdale auction was the best one that Barrett-Jackson has ever had. Nearly $200 million worth of cars were sold, and nearly 9 million dollars was raised for charity.
The highest seller was a rare and legendary 2004 Porsche Carrera GT, which sold for nearly $2 million, and other appearances on the top ten list included a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, three Ford GTs, and even a 6×6 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG.
Pitbull came along with a “Mr. 305 Edition” Karma GS-6, and the proceeds from its sale were donated to the SLAM and Selfless Love Foundations, while the very first 2023 Corvette Z06 was sold for an incredible $3.6 million, and the proceeds were given to Operation Homefront. Other cars sold for charity included a De Tomaso Pantera, the first 2022 Shelby GT500KR, the Pope Francis Center Edition Ford Bronco, and a 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback.
With such a high bar set by the Scottsdale Auction, Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach Auction, from April 7-9, bears the responsibility of continuing Barrett-Jackson’s incredible year. If it’s anything like the Scottsdale Auction, we are excited to see what crosses the block.
