Another year has come and gone for the highly anticipated Scottsdale Auto Auctions, and 2015 did not disappoint. While the numbers from last year’s events were amazing, all the data from this year’s auctions shows an increase in every category: more cars sold, higher sales amount for individual lots, and more money made cumulatively across all of the auctions.
- Total dollar-amount of vehicles sold: $292.8 million
- 86% sell-through rate (2,532 of 2,939)
- Average sale price: $115, 729
The top ten highest bid vehicles also make up a varied list of beautiful cars that would make any classic car aficionado weak in the knees. This year the Barrett-Jackson auctions was even offered an additional day of auctions to accommodate the 141-car Ron Pratte Collection which sold for just over $35M on its own. Hagerty did a great job of putting together the top ten highest priced lots in the list below – of which Ferrari occupied 8 of the top 10 slots.
