A 2022 GTPE set the daily auction record today at Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas. This should make us all feel better about what we paid for our cars!

I want to find whoever won that auction and send them a link to a Carmax add for $25k less than that.

Don't forget they also had to pay 10% buyers premium. And probably also had to ship the car back home if they aren't local.

Whoever bought it is going to be really disappointed when they learn about the 5-second rule for that price. I don't think these bidders knew much about the car.

I was also LOLing too hard at them trying and failing to open the frunk...

The winning bidder's total cost was somewhere north of $113K!

Yep. Plus sales tax (unless they have a dealers license) and no fed tax credit. But, the market speaks. That is the value of those things apparently. I sold my 74 MG this past Jan at the BJ auction. It was triple black and set a record too. Kinda crazy this year with used car pricing.

This auction is making me look really good for what I paid for our GTPE last week. I sent the YouTube link to my wife with a note that said, "Check this out; I saved us $40K off the price paid by the winning bidder!" 😂

A lot of money at these auctions and the atmosphere along with comp beverages, it's High End clientele and ego a little. Plus the GTPE is amazing!

The Barrett Jackson off-line auctions are kind of like the Tavistock cup

in case you don’t know that’s the ultra elite golf tournament that Tiger started before the Saudis took over golf

Not Allowed to go unless u live there (Isleworth or Bahamas ) and the booths sold fractional jet memberships, and $20 million houses. I got to go once. 5k a ticket. Mine was comped. Met Tiger and Annika. Annika was great. Goat not so much…

The super rich will pay anything to be very cool. It smells of mindless desperation.

No way I'd pay $113K for a GTPE with a front license plate bracket

I'll take mindless desperation as potential suitors for my GTPE. I won't feel bad, maybe a little sad for them, but If it makes them happy.

DMG color looks amazing. I even thought for a minute to buy GTPE wheels. But no, to complicated to keep them clean on daily commute car. Front license plate, how they tried to open frunk and price made me laughing 😂 . Thanks
