The Imperial Palace Auto Collection in Las Vegas
Top classic cars from around the world
One of the finest classic car collections in all the world is found at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas. The total collection includes about 1,000 cars, with 200 on display at any given time on a rotating basis. The total value of this collection is estimated to be around $100 million, making it one of the most expensive in the world. Most of these cars are actually for sale, so it's also one of the world's most exclusive dealerships.
Located on the 5th floor of the hotel's parking garage, you will probably not get another chance in your life to see so many rare classic cars all in one place. You can get their easily from anywhere on the strip from a Las Vegas taxi or from the Deuce Bus.
How much is admission, and what cars do they have?
The Auto Collections at Imperial Palace on the Las Vegas Strip is one of the least expensive exhibits in Las Vegas. It's only $6.95 for an adult ticket, and even less for children and seniors. The collection opens at 9:30 in the morning and closes at 9:30 in the evening. The average visitor will stay for about 2 hours.
Now let's talk about the cars, because there are some beautiful ones. They have a collection of Duesenbergs, which can be valued in the millions of dollars. They also have some far less expensive but very nice newer cars, such as the 1987 Buick Grand National GNX. They have cars from all eras, and their collection ranges from luxury cars to sports cars to exotic cars. When I was there they had a Jaguar XJ220 on display. The recently had a Delorean DMC-12 and sold it to a collector, but chances are when you're there they'll probably have another one. Just about any car you've ever dreamed about is in this collection.
