The 13th annual Russo and Steele “Sports and Muscle” Scottsdale auction saw more than 700 automobiles cross the auction block over five days, with the top result going to a numbers-matching 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster that sold for $727,100.

One of the more notable items at this year’s sale was the announcement that Russo and Steele were starting two new auctions in 2013: Newport Beach, California and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Drew Alcazar, CEO of Russo and Steele, commented that he was, “pleased with Scottsdale’s results and the tremendous response that the announcement about our two new auctions has produced. Typically, at this time we have the phones ringing off the hook asking about results from Scottsdale – this year we fielded double the number of calls, but it was from enthusiasts and clients alike asking about the new events and how they can start planning to attend them.”
