The very first 2016 Cadillac CT6 took home $200,000 for the Karmanos Cancer Institute, though its buyers will have to wait until production ramps up to receive their hotly anticipated sedan. The CT6 packs a twin-turbo V6 in highest trim, good for an even 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Need an even more stratospheric number? Across three days of the auction, Barrett-Jackson shifted a massive $22 million worth of cars.
General Motors was kept in the spotlight this weekend after another of its cars took a high bid. A 1987 Buick Regal GNX showing only 362 miles sold for $165,000 – setting a world record. Top dollar, low-mileage Fords weren’t to be discounted either. A 2006 Ford GT with a mere 19 miles brought home a whopping $319,000. The Ford GTs continue to climb in value. A 13-mile ‘Heritage Edition’ sold for $475,000 earlier this month.
And remember the Herbie movies? One particular ‘Herbie the love bug’ that squirted oil on a police officer in Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo sold at Palm Beach for $126,000 and in the process set a world record for Volkswagen Beetles.
