"Our Las Vegas Auction provided our guests an amazing, unparalleled experience over the Independence Day holiday weekend," said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. "We set the stage with our world-class Opening Night Party at Zouk Nightclub followed by our ‘supercar therapy' event with the Driven Project that put kids battling serious illnesses into supercars on Thursday morning. We then filled the next three days with exciting auction moments, including the sale of 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V First Retail Production VIN 001, which raised $525,000 for charity. The Las Vegas Auction also demonstrated the demand for blue chip HEMI cars that brought in strong hammer prices."

"The depth, breadth and quality of our docket, especially muscle cars, hot rods and Resto-Mods, was among the best we've ever offered in Las Vegas," said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. "American HEMI muscle appropriately led the charge this holiday weekend. Classic trucks and SUV's, especially Chevrolet C10 trucks and Ford Broncos also continue to be popular. The collector car hobby is enjoying a banner year and I look forward to riding the momentum into our Houston Auction this October."

During this year's Las Vegas Auction, Barrett-Jackson raised $650,000 for charity from the sale of two vehicles led by the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V First Production VIN 001 (Lot #3000), which raised $525,000 benefitting the Pensole Lewis College of Business and Design.
