Among the record-shattering moments at the 2021 Las Vegas Auction was the sale of a crowd favorite: a 1959 Cadillac Ghostbusters Ectomobile Re-creation that brought in $220,000.

 

Want to know the trends in the collector car industry? Keep an eye on the record-breaking sales at Barrett-Jackson. Records are continually set and broken on the Barrett-Jackson auction block – we saw the Resto-Mod and custom segment explode, and now the ’90s-era and JDM vehicles keep making waves, as does the growing demand for collectible – and often Resto-Modded – SUVs and pickups. At the 2021 Las Vegas Auction, 60 new auction records were set (referencing data sourced from the auction results website Hi-Bid.com). But sometimes it’s not just about setting records – it’s about shattering them. Check out the gallery below for some of the more notable Las Vegas sales that rang the bell and landed in the record books!
