The 2014 classic-car auction season opened with a bang at Scottsdale, Arizona last week with the Barrett-Jackson event tallying up a total of $249 million in auctions.
The total is up from $224 million from 2013, but 116 more lots were sold this year than last (2,815 vs 2,699). The most expensive vehicle sold at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction was a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT California LWB Spider that fetched $8.8 million. It was followed by a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet that went for $6.2 million.
It wasn’t all about classic cars however at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event. The first production Chevrolet COPO Camaro, Camaro Z/28 and Ford Mustang were also sold along with a Ferrari F1 race car that was previously driven by Michael Schumacher.
