More Than $32.9 Million Sold At Barrett Jackson Las Vegas 2018: Huge Photo Gallery

The Barrett-Jackson collector car auction was in Las Vegas, Nevada again this past weekend at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Hundreds of classic cars and trucks rolled across the auction block as eager bidders named their price in hopes of taking one of their favorites home with them. The Barrett-Jackson auctions are not only a great place to buy a car, but are also great events to attend as a spectator with hundreds of classic cars on the grounds at each venue. In addition to all the beautiful vehicles that were lined up inside convention center, there were lots of vendors on site and even ride-alongs from Dodge happening right outside.  Away from main stage, attendees could wander the rows of classic cars taking in the sights. There was even the Motor Trend live stage on site where automotive experts gave a deeper look into the cars after they crossed the auction block and helped explain why they brought what they brought.

Burt Reynolds’ 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am “Bandit” Re-creation brought a hefty $175K sum when the hammer fell. This was a car that Burt Reynolds personally oversaw the creation of to get it as accurate as possible to the movie car.

There was a lot of variety in what rolled across the auction block over the three day event, but perhaps the most noteworthy were the last remaining cars from Burt Reynolds collection being sold off after his death just last month. His movie-correct replica Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am went for $175K, his movie-correct replica Hooper Trans Am sold for $80K, and his Cannonball Run replica Chevrolet dually sold for $45K. Additionally, more than a million dollars was raised for various charities during the event, and many bidders went home with a car they’ve always wanted to own!

Richard Petty brought a 2018 Ford F-150 XLT Pickup customized by Petty’s Garage to be auctioned off and the proceeds donated to Paralyzed Veterans of America. It ended up bringing in $116,500 for the charity and the King himself was there to present it.

In total, 733 vehicles, nearly all at No Reserve, sold at a staggering 100 percent sell-through rate for a Las Vegas Auction record of more than $32.9 million, while nearly 400 pieces of automobilia brought in over $760,000, and $1,094,500 was raised through the sale of charity vehicles, bringing the total auction sales to more than $34.7 million.
