10 Cars You Won’t Believe at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale

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.
