Super Saturday in Las Vegas was certainly one for the record books! The final day of the 2021 Las Vegas Auction was filled with those incredible moments that only Barrett-Jackson can provide – and they just kept coming all day.
It was a pair of stunning supercars that rocked the block on Saturday, with a 2015 @McLaren P1 formerly owned by DJ/record product @deadmau5 selling for $1,567,500, and a Liquid Red 2019 Ford GT that brought in $1,028,500. An extraordinary 1955 @Mercedes-Benz 300SL was also front and center, selling for $1,045,000. Other top sellers of the day included a custom 1963 @Chevrolet Corvette Split-Window Coupe ($396,000), a 2011 @Porsche Speedster ($385,000) and Henry Ford II’s 1966 @Ford Motor Company Mustang K-Code Convertible ($330,000, a new record sale at auction).
More than two dozen more record auction sales were set on Super Saturday, including a fan favorite – a re-creation of the famous “Ecto-1” from the movie “@Ghostbusters” – which went on to its next adventure for $220,000. Other notable records included a 1966 Ghia 450/SS Convertible ($220,000), a 1960 @Cadillac Coupe de Ville Custom Hardtop ($275,000) and a 1960 Chevrolet Biscayne Custom Sedan ($198,000).
Saturday was also full of celebrities – and celebrity cars! One of the most-talked-about “star cars” – a 1994 @Toyota USA Supra used in two films in the “Fast & Furious” franchise and driven by late actor Paul Walker – electrified the arena when it sold for a record price of $550,000. Las Vegas legend Wayne Newton was onstage (and even tried his hand as auctioneer) for the sale of three vehicles from his collection, two of which achieved record sales: a beautiful 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II for $93,500 and a custom 1981 Mercedes-Benz 380SL for $84,700. A stunning 1994 Rolls-Royce Corniche and a shimmering silver 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing Coupe from the estate of late Las Vegas icons Siegfried & Roy sold for $117,700 and $198,000 respectively.
