The 43rd annual Scottsdale Collector Car Auction is officially in the books, and what a show it was: More than 1,400 were sold for in excess of $100 million, and when the final sales total is calculated, it is expected to be a new all-time record.

Barrett-Jackson’s new 12,000-seat permanent facility at Westworld was jammed with bidders and spectators all week long and attendance was up sharply as well.

On the auction front, there were several world records set:

• A 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 (pictured above), one of only 20 made and the only one that’s red-on-red, sold for $3.85 million with the 10 percent bidder fee on top of the $3.5 million hammer price.

• A 1969 L88 Corvette race car known as “The Rebel” sold for $2.86 million with bidder’s fee. One of the most successful road racers of all time, The Rebel set records that stood for decades.
