SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. –Feb. 9, 2016
– The successful results reported by Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, demonstrates the company’s dominance in the industry and the current state of the collector car hobby. With 1,469 cars selling for over $102 million (unaudited) at a 99-percent sell-through rate and many records set, 2016 Scottsdale Auction was the highest grossing auction during Scottsdale car week and one of the company’s most successful auctionsin its 45-year history.


“Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale was a spectacular success,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Our sell-through for such a large number of collector cars was truly prolific. Some might be tempted to compare our 2015 auction, which included the enormous Pratte Collection, but when the Pratte Collection sales are factored out, our 2016 results proved stronger than what we did in 2015.”


In 2015, rather than holding a stand-alone auction for a private collection like many auction houses have done, Barrett-Jacksondid the unimaginable and added an extra day to includethe 141 Pratte Collection vehicles as a part of the flagship event. Excluding the Pratte Collection results in 2015, Barrett-Jackson saw a more than a 6-percent growth in sales in Scottsdale this year with two fewer cars sold.

Barrett-Jackson’s 45th Anniversary Scottsdale Auction set numerous published auction records for specific automobiles:

“I’m proud to have kicked off our 45th Anniversary year with such a successful event,” added Jackson. “This growth demonstrates Barrett-Jackson’s ability to continually set the bar and serve as the barometer of car collecting. I look forward to the rest of the 2016 auction season, especially as we add the inaugural Northeast Auction to our portfolio.”
