Mecum does $9 million in LA

Modern supercars star, but some true classics crack the top 10

Mecum Auctions’ Los Angeles collector car sale posted only a 49 percent sell-through rate and total sales of $9 million, some $300,000 less than the same auction the previous year.

The top sale of the two-day event was a 2006 Ford GT that sold for $327,750 (Mecum now reports prices that include buyer’s fees). A 2016 Lamborghini Huracan equipped with a Vorsteiner Novara kit sold for $236,500 as modern supercars topped the sales chart.
