Looking for a cherry 1958 Corvette or a late 60s GTO? Scottsdale Auction Week has multiple options for American muscle cars and 1950s cruisers to choose from. It all starts this weekend at Barrett-Jackson at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
Vintage cars and collectors are arriving in town for Scottsdale Auction Week, a multi-event celebration of some of the world’s finest automobiles.
It’s that time of year to ogle cars and people watch in the white tents of Scottsdale’s winter events season.
Barrett-Jackson will start things off Saturday, January 13th for a preview of its 46th annual Scottsdale Auction with close to 1,500 cars crossing the stage at WestWorld during the nine-day event running January 14-22.
An endless parade of Corvettes, Mustangs, Camaros, Hemicudas, exotic sports cars and pre-war Classics are on the docket.
One of the cars featured for a charity auction is a 2012 Hennessy Venom GT Spyder that Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is donating.
Tickets are $20 each for Saturday, Sunday or Monday and increase all week to top out at $75 on Saturday when the seven-figure cars are sold.
Scottsdale Auction Week also includes the Gooding & Co. event at Scottsdale Fashion Square, RM Sotheby’s and the Arizona Concours D’Elegance, both at Arizona Biltmore, Russo & Steele at Salt River Fields, Bonhams at Westin Kierland and Silver at the Fort McDowell Resort & Casino.
Total sales last year at the six auctions topped $250 million, including $103 million at Barrett-Jackson's event. The top-selling car, an all-time record for an Arizona car auction, was a 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster that sold for $9.9 million at RM Sotheby's.
