Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2017 – Auction Results

The Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2017 auction was held January 14-22 at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Arizona, resulting in $100 million in total sales and a 99.5 percent sell-through rate. A total of 1,719 vehicles were offered during this year’s Arizona Auction Week sale, the company’s 46th annual Scottsdale event that was attended by approximately 320,000 people. Over 1,800 pieces of automobilia sold for more than $2.5 million, bringing the total sales to over $102 million.

“This year’s Scottsdale auction was a tremendous success,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Despite the rain and colder temperatures, we had a phenomenal turnout, set 40 world auction sales records and sold more than 1,800 pieces of authentic automobilia. This year’s entertainment factor was through the roof. From Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steven Tyler and Grammy award-winning Justin Bieber, through undefeated pro boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and the most decorated Olympian in history, Michael Phelps, to two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson, there was no shortage of entertainment and full-throttle excitement.”
