In the accident that left this Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 split in two, the 40-year-old driver miraculously remained unharmed. He even called his insurance while stepping out of the car (or whatever was left of it). The accident took place last night at around 6pm local time in Thailand. The car crashed with the test plates.
We all know that Barrett-Jackson is no stranger to the rarest, meanest and sexiest the automotive world has ever seen, and we know that the auction house is also used to eight- and nine-digit takes at the end of each auction. Well, the 2014 Palm Beach Auction was no different than every other one, as it pulled in a cool $25 million. Sure, that is relatively small by B-J standards, but for Palm Beach, that is a pretty good tally. Surprisingly, there was only one true supercar in the whole lineup this year.
This trumps last year’s $21 million, and makes it the second-largest tally since the massive $32 million B-J did in 2007. In total, there were 509 cars sold, and seven of those cars had their proceeds go to charities. These seven cars netted a total of $2.35 million dollars for their respective charities. All of these totals are well and good, but we are here to talk about the cars that really lit up Barrett-Jackson’s coffers, like the incredible $1,000,000 that the 2015 Corvette Z06 drew in and the nine remaining six-digit totals that make up the top-ten highest sales figures at Palm Beach.
