Barrett-Jackson Achieves $34.8m in Las Vegas

Barrett-Jackson finished its 2019 auction season with its first 100-percent No Reserve collector car and automobilia auction in nearly a decade. With an amazing and diverse docket, Barrett-Jackson sold 677 vehicles for more than $33.3 million, while over 352 pieces of automobilia brought in over $855,800; both records for our Las Vegas event. In addition, $560,000 was raised through the sale of charity vehicles, bringing the total auction sales to over $34.8 million.

This year’s 12th Annual Las Vegas Auction at the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort was also a gathering place for automotive legends, as well as celebrities from the entertainment and sports industries. Among those in attendance were Roger Penske, racing legend and owner of Team Penske; Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer, band members of Aerosmith; Siegfried and Roy, Las Vegas magicians and entertainers; Cody Walker, brother of the late actor Paul Walker; TV personality Adam Ferrara and Joey Hand, Ford GT Le Mans winner.

“Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction was an incredible way to cap off our 2019 auction season,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We’re so appreciative of the consignors, bidders, sponsors and guests who played a role in the success of this fantastic event. 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. It was also a true highlight to host Roger Penske, one of the greatest automotive legends of our time. We’re excited to carry the momentum we’ve built up over the year to our 49th Annual Scottsdale Auction in January.”
