Hagerty Automotive Intelligence also announced its prediction of $211 million in auction sales for the upcoming Arizona Auction week. This represents a 14% decline when compared to 2020’s $244 million total. The decline is attributed to fewer auctions hosting sales, a reduction in lots by one third and fewer predicted $1 million vehicles offered.
