Barrett-Jackson has claimed its largest-grossing Scottsdale auction in the company’s history this year, raking in a total of $131.6 million USD in vehicle and memorabilia sales over the week-long auction. Over 1,800 vehicles traded hands, representing more than $118 million USD and a sell-through rate of over 99 percent, helped along by Barrett-Jackson’s no-reserve policy on most lots.

At the top of the regular lot results was a 2019 McLaren Senna that brought a winning bid of $1,457,000 USD against its MSRP of roughly $840,000 USD—a nice profit for the seller. Runner-up honors went to the six-wheeled 2014 Mercedes-Benz G 63 6X6, one of just over 100 built, which sold for $1,210,000 USD. The G 63 6X6 was roughly a half-million-dollar car when new. The third top-seller was a 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition, which brought $918,500 USD.

Several highly anticipated cars were earmarked for charity, which brought greatly exaggerated prices for their tax write-off value. The 2020 Toyota Supra, the very first production car with VIN 20201, sold for a staggering $2.1 million USD (proceeds to benefit the American Heart Association and Bob Woodruff Foundation) while the first 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition brought $2.5 million USD to be donated to United Way for Southeastern Michigan. A 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, VIN 001, went to a new home for $1.1 million USD, which will be given to diabetes research group JDRF.
