No matter your taste in cars, there's a little something for everyone at the 43rd annual Scottsdale Auction, which runs from Jan. 12-19. From sports cars to American classic models and legendary European creations, this auction has it all covered.
And don't worry, if you can't make it to Scottsdale, you can catch 36 hours of TV coverage over six straight days on the Fox Network, so everyone can appreciate the incredible machines on display and enjoy the excitement and tension that surfaces as they're auctioned off.
Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, Craig Jackson, is delighted to be able to showcase these fine autos and give fans and buyers a rewarding experience. “For more than four decades we’ve been offering the world’s most valuable, collectible, and coveted cars and we’re proud to continue that tradition," he said. "With the Salon Collection offering in its third year, enthusiasts and collectors will once again experience the high-quality offerings they expect from Barrett-Jackson."
The auction kicks off on Jan. 12 with a special family-value day that will benefit Cox Charities, which helps youth and educations programs in the Virginia area. The Opening Gala will take place the following night, and it will feature a special performance from rock star Bret Michaels to get the show on the road.
