Mecum achieves $234 million of sales at 12-day auction
The Mecum Kissimmee sale is billed at the world’s largest collector car auction and it lived up to the billing with $234 million (£189 million) of vehicles sold during its 12-day run.
2023 is the second year in a row where Mecum has exceeded $200 million in sales at its first auction of the year, and more than 4000 vehicles were consigned.
At the end of the sale, 3180 vehicles had been sold, giving a sale rate of 79.5%. Out of those sales, 13 vehicles went for more than $1 million, including a 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air IV Convertible.
The highest price was achieved by a Ferrari F40 that sold for $3.135 million (£2.53 million).
European models locked out the top five highest prices, with the F40 followed by a Ferrari 275 GTB/4, BMW 507 Roadster, Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, and a Ferrari 330 GTS.
