I don’t really understand how anyone could lose a whole car, but apparently it happens even to rare and valuable prototypes, like the 1967 Ford Shelby GT500 EXP prototype, which has been missing for half a century. Many thought it to be destroyed after it completed testing, but now it’s been discovered and its…
There’s something special about having the very last of something, especially if those somethings are a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and a 2017 Dodge Viper. Fiat Chrysler has ceased production of the two, and the last examples of each, sold as a pair, recently fetched $1 million at auction. Update: The winner was…
Barrett-Jackson’s 2018 Scottsdale auction just wrapped up and everyone’s rich dad went home happy with a NUMBERSMATCHINGIKNOWWHATIHAVE 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS that’ll sit untouched in a garage for the rest of eternity. Occasionally my dad and I will watch the auction live because I will always have a soft spot for…
Chevrolet’s Corvette ZR1 is a bonkerballs flagship supercar like none the US has ever produced, with 755 supercharged horsepower and an easy-peasy 210 mile per hour top speed. It’s available with a big ole wing and awesome lightweight track-focussed wheels. If you like V8s and power and America, you’d be silly not to…
Ford GTs: new and old—it seems like everybody wants one. So of course this 2004 Ford GT is worthy of your attention, especially because it’s a prototype.
This is the real world; it’s not just fantasy. If you open your eyes and look up toward lot 608 at Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas next week, you may just make yourself into a poor boy (or girl), because the recently restored 1976 AMC Pacer used in Wayne’s World is up for auction.
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. But in 2015 he's selling every single car he owns at that auction, including a GM Futurliner. And he hasn't given a reason.
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.
The third week in January means wealthy car collectors from around the world flock to Arizona for a week of car auctions, the most notable of which is Barrett-Jackson's massive 6 day auction in Scottsdale. Chances are if you're reading this the closest you are getting to the 1000+ car event is watching it on…
When Lamborghini replaced the legendary Diablo with the Murcielago in 2001 they ended the model's 11 year run with 40 individually numbered Special Edition cars. The final 40 cars were all individually numbered Diablo 6.0 VTs equipped with AWD and a 550 horsepower V12.
