The Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction is a few months away, and attending the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Las Vegas is on every car collector’s wish list. Getting the chance to bid or even just to attend is a dream come true for any avid car collector or fan.

The 2015 Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction Scottsdale was the largest vehicle consignment in the history of the event and included the sale of the Ron Pratte Collection. The Ron Pratte collection on its own drew a record number of bidders and attendees to the auction for a chance to purchase from the wide range of American muscle, European classics, exotic sports cars and one-of-a-kind customs.

During the 10-day auction, Barrett-Jackson recorded more than $131 million in sales of 1,612 vehicles (unaudited) and a world-record $6.55 million in automobila sales (unaudited), making it the highest sales result to date. The highly regarded Ron Pratte Collection alone brought in over $40.44 million in vehicle and automobilia sales.
