Barrett-Jackson to host collector car auction in Las Vegas in 2008
Las Vegas, Neva – The Barrett-Jackson Auction Company has announced that it will bring its collector car auction to Las Vegas in 2008. The event will take place October 16 to 18, 2008, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center and will be covered on television by SPEED.
Approximately 600 cars will be sold at no reserve during the event, from muscle cars to pre-war classics. The company has been producing its auctions, called The World’s Greatest Collector Car Events, since 1971 in Scottsdale, Arizona, with an auction in Palm Beach, Florida launched in 2002.
“Las Vegas as a city mirrors the dynamic atmosphere of a Barrett-Jackson event,” says Chairman/CEO Craig Jackson. “We believe the two are an ideal match and we intend to become a significant part of the city’s landscape in the coming years.”
The three-day event will also include an automobilia auction, a display by auto vendors, live music, fashion shows, and a charity gala.
