As for your dreams of owning VIN No. 001 of the 2017 Acura NSX, well... they’re not happening. Better luck next time. That honor will go to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, who paid nearly eight times the car’s price tag for rights to make the first custom order.
Here's a funny joke I like to tell about the Shelby Cobra: How do you know if one is real? The answer: It's not real. Actual, honest-to-God, non-replica Shelby Cobras are crazy rare and crazy expensive. And the ultimate Cobra just sold for a nice chunk of change at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale.
It's pretty well established that the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is an insanely good deal for your money, if you pay MSRP. But it you want Hellcat VIN number 0001, you're going to pay more than the $59,995 sticker. A lot more. More than ten times more. All the more.
The Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona is one of the biggest auto sales events of the entire year. For the last decade, it's been about what one man, Ron Pratte, would buy.

Not every car at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction this week is a Duesenberg selling for a cool gazillion to some mustache comber with a trophy wife. Check out these eight cars you may have missed, probably because you thought you were being trolled.
This past Saturday, as you may have heard, the original Ford Futura showcar that was modified into the first Batmobile sold for a Bruce Wayne-wealth-worthy $4.2 million dollars.
Holy insert clever auto auction pun here, Batman! The original Batmobile from the 1960s TV series was sold tonight at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction for an insane $4.2 million.
Another day. Another Barrett-Jackson controversy involving a president. This weekend the famous classic car auction helped raise $950,000 for a Marine veteran's project for wounded warriors. The only problem? The money isn't going to the highly-regarded charity, the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).
Let's start with the end result here, just to get that out of the way: a very deserving charity received a lot of money. So far so good. It's the way it all went down that makes you want to retch.
The top seller of the high dollar automotive spectacle that is Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale was a beautiful blue 1948 Tucker Torpedo.

After the debacle surrounding the fake JFK 1963 Pontiac Bonneville ambulance at last year's Scottsdale auction it appears Barrett-Jackson is going to try selling another professional car linked to the late president. The big difference? It is well documented this hearse actually transported JFK's body.
The star of this weekend's Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas was this 1964 Ford Fairlane K-code which sold for an amazing $700,000 with all proceeds going to charity.

Chevy's celebrating their 100th anniversary with the another special edition of their flagship sports car: the 2012 Chevrolet Centennial Edition Corvette. It'll add magnetic selective ride control, custom satin black wheels, and the most special special badging ever.
Throughout the saga of the 1963 Pontiac ambulance that purportedly carried the body of President John F. Kennedy, the Barrett-Jackson auction house touted a metal plate attached to its dash as possible proof of authenticity. Trouble is, it's fake, too.
On Saturday, right after Barrett-Jackson sold the ambulance that didn't carry President John F. Kennedy's body following his assassination, another collector bought it for "slightly more" than the $120,000 auction price — and she's no stranger to politics.
