Barrett-Jackson has consigned an historic 1,800 No-Reserve vehicles, the most on record for any public collector car auction, for its 48th Annual Scottsdale Auction that takes place January 12-20, 2019 at WestWorld of Scottsdale. This incredible collector car event will include a huge number of high-profile motorsports celebrities.
Last year's auction had 5,000 registered bidders equaling a $1 Billion credit line. Scottsdale is the perfect location for this luxury event with numerous world-class resorts, spas, golf courses, inventive bars and authentic restaurants that bring an energetic urban landscape to life in the Sonoran desert.
Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, said the latest trend in car collecting is "restomod" -- a relatively recent phenomenon in the collector-car world. These cars mix old and new technology to create the best of both worlds, matching classic styling with modern comfort, performance and reliability.
Established in 1971 and headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, is the leader in collector car and automotive lifestyle events, which include authentic automobilia auctions and the sale of high-profile estates and private collections.
Barrett-Jackson also produces auctions in Palm Beach, Las Vegas and at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
