The top-selling vehicle on Saturday – and of the entire 2021 Las Vegas Auction – was this 2015 McLaren P1 that once belonged to DJ/record producer Deadmau5. The sleek supercar sold for $1,567,500.
Super Saturday in Las Vegas was certainly one for the record books! The final day of the 2021 Las Vegas Auction was filled with those incredible moments that only Barrett-Jackson can provide – and they just kept coming all day.
SOLD for $1,045,000: This impeccable 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster.
It was a pair of stunning supercars that rocked the block on Saturday, with a 2015 McLaren P1 formerly owned by DJ/record product Deadmau5 selling for $1,567,500, and a Liquid Red 2019 Ford GT that brought in $1,028,500. An extraordinary 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL was also front and center, selling for $1,045,000. Other top sellers of the day included a custom 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split-Window Coupe ($396,000), a 2011 Porsche Speedster ($385,000) and Henry Ford II’s 1966 Ford Mustang K-Code Convertible ($330,000).
More than two dozen more record auction sales were set on Super Saturday, including a fan favorite – a re-creation of the famous “Ecto-1” from the movie “Ghostbusters” – which went on to its next adventure for $220,000. Other notable records included a 1966 Ghia 450/SS Convertible ($220,000), a 1960 Cadillac Coupe de Ville Custom Hardtop ($275,000) and a 1960 Chevrolet Biscayne Custom Sedan ($198,000).
This 2021 Ford Bronco 4-Door Badlands Raiders Edition sold for $275,000 to benefit Grant A Gift Autism Foundation and the Raiders Foundation.
Two exciting charity vehicles had their turn onstage Saturday. The first was the first-ever 2021 Ford Bronco 4-Door Badlands Raiders Edition, wrapped in Las Vegas Raiders regalia with riveted steel plates and full of a wealth of extras provided by Gaudin Motor Company. Accompanied by the Raiderettes and Raiders President Marc Badain, the Bronco brought the hammer down on a price of $275,000, all of which will go to the Las Vegas-based Grant a Gift Autism Foundation and the Raiders Foundation.
The second “car for a cause” was a very special 2020 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Hertz/Hendrick Motorsports Edition, production #001 of just 24 commissioned to commemorate the #24 Hendrick Motorsports ZL1 Camaro race car driven by NASCAR Cup Series driver William Byron and sponsored by Hertz. The most powerful ZL1 ever offered roared onto the block and sold for $250,000, with the entire hammer price benefiting the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation, which treats children facing the imminent loss of their mom or dad to cancer to “WOW! Experiences” – a timeout to create positive, cherished memories at beautiful destinations.
Craig Jackson and Steve Davis share a laugh onstage with “Mr. Las Vegas,” Wayne Newton.
Saturday was also full of celebrities – and celebrity cars! One of the most-talked-about “star cars” – a 1994 Toyota Supra used in two films in the “Fast & Furious” franchise and driven by late actor Paul Walker – electrified the arena when it sold for a record price of $550,000. Las Vegas legend Wayne Newton was onstage (and even tried his hand as auctioneer) for the sale of three vehicles from his collection, two of which achieved record sales: a beautiful 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II for $93,500 and a custom 1981 Mercedes-Benz 380SL for $84,700. A stunning 1994 Rolls-Royce Corniche and a shimmering silver 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing Coupe from the estate of late Las Vegas icons Siegfried & Roy sold for $117,700 and $198,000 respectively.
The morning’s automobilia auction also had some memorable moments, including the sale of an animated 1940s Greyhound Bus neon sign that brought in $46,000 and a stunning Packard Automobiles neon sign from the 1930s, which sold for $36,800. Saturday’s remarkable sales contributed to this year’s Las Vegas Automobilia Auction being the most successful in the company’s history in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
Super Saturday finished in spectacular fashion to mark Barrett-Jackson President Steve Davis’ 25th anniversary with the company. The surprise celebration centered around an honor guard and gathering of first responders on the auction block, who know too well Steve’s commitment to helping those who serve. He and his wife Janie donated the entire $1-million sale price from his 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake to Las Vegas first responders after the tragic shooting in 2017.
