Worldwide Auctioneers’ Scottsdale debut helps grow the market out in Arizona

Auburn, IN. February 1, 2017. Final results are in for Worldwide’s inaugural Scottsdale sale, confirming significant success for the auction company’s Arizona debut. 82 exceptional hand picked cars went under the hammer, with total sales of $11.5 million and 79% of consignments finding new homes.  “Starting the year with an Arizona sale had long been part of our plans and we felt the time was right to introduce a fresh and exciting sale to the mix,” said Rod Egan, Principal & Auctioneer. “We are delighted to have helped grow the market out in Arizona in terms of overall sales and would like to sincerely thank all those who showed us such tremendous enthusiasm and support. We look forward to welcoming old friends and new to back to Scottsdale for many years to come.”

Worldwide’s Scottsdale Auction took place on the evening of Wednesday January 18, effectively kicking off the week’s round of catalogue sales. High sale went to  an outstanding 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L-88 Roadster which realized $1.98 million – “race-bred, extremely rare, expertly restored and simply put, one of the finest and most significant L-88 Corvettes in existence today,” said John Kruse, Principal of Worldwide. Headlining the sale was a stunning  and impeccably documented 1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America that hammered sold for $1.1million.

A storied 1961 “farm-find” Aston Martin DB4, uncovered after an astonishing 45 years in the woods and presented for sale as found, was one of the week’s most talked- about cars, attracting global attention and a final sales figure of $374,000.
