Barrett-Jackson showed that the collector car market is thriving during its weeklong Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale, March 20-27. Among the most notable sales during the week was the 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake that sold for $5.5 million and a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 that sold for $2.475 million.

In total, 1,054 vehicles sold for over $95 million, while over 1,000 pieces of automobilia brought in over $4.4 million, and $5.8 million was raised through the sale of charity vehicles, bringing the total auction sales to more than $105 million with a 100-percent sell-through rate.

In addition to its quality collector car docket, Barrett-Jackson brought back the prestigious Barrett-Jackson Cup to recognize the talent and craftsmanship of custom car and truck builders. On Saturday, Barrett-Jackson Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson and President Steve Davis announced the “Ultimate Best in Show” was a 1970 Dodge Challenger known as “Havoc.”

The 2018 Event featured ex-POTUS G.W. Bush auctioning a 2018 Corvette Carbon 65.

“It was wonderful to be back among our friends and family in the collector car community,” said Craig Jackson. “The pandemic challenged us all in different ways, which is why it was great to reconnect and celebrate this passion we all love so much. We also relished the chance to write history with the sale of the most VIN 001 and first production vehicles ever offered at auction, which raised $5.8 million for charity.”
