Barrett-Jackson Ends 2019 Auction Year with All No Reserve Las Vegas Event
Three Ford GTs were among the top five sales during the 12th annual Las Vegas Barrett-Jackson Auction at the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort. This was also the first 100-percent No Reserve collector car and automobilia auction in almost a decade for the Scottsdale-based company.
The top five CARS were a 2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition (Lot #747), $1,540,000; 2019 Ferrari 488 Spider (#749), $368,500; 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider (#746), $330,000; 2005 Ford GT (#764); $324,500; and a 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition (#748), $324,500.
In all, Barrett-Jackson sold 677 vehicles for $33.3-plus million, and more than 352 pieces of automobilia generated in excess of $855,800 –– both records for the Las Vegas event. And, $560,000 was raised through the sale of charity vehicles, bringing the total sales to $34.8-plus million.
Among those attending were Roger Penske, racing legend and owner of Team Penske, and Joey Hand, Ford GT Le Mans winner.
“Not only did we reach another important milestone with our first 100-percent No Reserve collector car and automobilia auction in nearly a decade, we hit a number of auction sales records as well,” says Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Scottsdale-based Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, which also produces annual events in Scottsdale, Arizona; Palm Beach, Florida; and at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. “It was also a true highlight to host Roger Penske, one of the greatest automotive legends of our time.”
