Roughly a week after all the excitement has leveled off surrounding this year’s Scottsdale Auto Auctions it’s time to take a look back at some of the highlights from this year’s events. Hagerty did an outstanding job of compiling daily results as auction week progressed, and the cumulative sales totals from the entire week are truly astonishing:

  • Total dollar-value of vehicles sold: $248.5 million
  • 82% sell-through rate (2,234 of 2,699 lots sold)
  • Average sale price: $100,176

While the average sale prices were skewed slightly due to some amazing vehicles that sold at equally amazing prices, the Scottsdale attendees weren’t disappointed in the breadth and rarity of the cars at auction. Per Hagerty’s event recap, the top 10 highest-priced vehicles of the week were:
