Did you know Mecum Kissimmee was a record setting auction? It was described by Dana Mecum as the "Super Bowl" of car auctions and the more than 75,000 people who attended the event would likely agree! There was over 3,337 lots and Mecum experienced a 70% sell through. The cars were hot and went fast - and the total sales were close to $72 million.
We were proud to bring the auction to fans live for a record 32 hours so Velocity viewers could get a front row seat to some of the special lots that crossed the block. Even as the event was winding down the team was talking about gearing up for the next event.
