Triple Delight in the Desert: Dodges, SRT® Demons and Dollars!
4 years ago
In its eleventh year, the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas collector car auction, held September 27-29 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center generated more than $32.9 million in sales, a significant percentage of which were Dodge vehicles, vintage and new. In fact, one of the Top Ten most expensive vehicles sold during the event was a Dodge, a 2018 Challenger SRT® Demon number 42, which hammered for $198,000.
If you didn’t get a chance to watch the televised auction action on Discovery Channel and Velocity Channel, you missed plenty of excitement. As always, there were celebrities. Wayne Newton and Richard Petty made the scene, and $1,094,500 was raised for charity via the sale of some choice machinery.
Let’s take a peek at a cross section of the Dodge offerings and examine the details. Note, we use the term “hammered” when describing the sale amount. This reflects the dollar amount bid when the hammer dropped. The hammer price does not include the 8 percent seller’s premium or 10 percent buyer’s commission.
