The Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction was in my neighborhood last week; it’s wrapping up as I type. We’ve got some pictures of some of the neat cars that were sold this year.
In fact, the Scottsdale Auction saw a new record set for this auction, $9.9 million for this 1937 Mercedes 540K.
It was projected to bring between $10 and $13 million, so it came up a tad short.
The 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster fell short of its projected sale price between $10 and $13 million, but still beat the previous Arizona record of $9.6 million set at the same auction last year.
Meanwhile, Friday was Jay Leno’s day to take the state at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, where the former “Tonight Show” host sold a truck from his famed auto collection, with proceeds going to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. It was one of many high-profile cars on the docket as the auction moved into day four.
We have some additional beauties following, you can read about the auction and all these cars here.
