Up Close and Personal at Barrett-Jackson 

Car inspections are one of the highlights of attending a Barrett-Jackson Car Auction. While the auctioneers prepare their cars for the block, you have the opportunity to look under the hood. Both locations provide this opportunity in different areas. For Las Vegas and Northeast, the cars are presented inside the ballroom under bright lights with plenty of air conditioning. In Scottsdale, your selection is much wider so you travel outside tent to tent. Pro tip here: check out the cars earlier in the day for the best lighting. Both shows include staging lanes you can check out as well. These lanes sit closer to the auction block for easy access. 

Ride and Drive at Barrett-Jackson

The Ride and Drive experiences at all shows are a must do! The top car companies are on site for the ride of your life in today’s hottest cars. A professional driver behind the wheel allows you to enjoy the ride through mazes and tracks you’ve never seen before. In Las Vegas and Northeast, you’re in luck! As a smaller show, the lines are smaller for this experience. In Scottsdale, more families attend this auction making this a huge attraction. Keep in mind the lines will be a bit longer so get there early! 


Barrett-Jackson Auction Size

All three shows offer up classic cars and memorabilia on the block you can’t resist. The biggest difference between the three are the size of the auctions. Each show boasts the greatest of car collections up for auction. The celebrity sightings, superior venues, and educational programming are what make these auctions must dos.

Las Vegas and Northeast are around the same size and are the smaller of the auctions which allows for a more intimate experience over the span of three days. The number of vendors is smaller making the shows easy to navigate, but it does cut down on the networking opportunities. Las Vegas does offer quite the nightlife and dining options post auction each evening while the casinos and shows at Mohegan Sun can’t be beat.

Scottsdale is the largest show of the year. The number of cars and vendors is drastically different in here; you’ll need all nine days to experience it all!  Exploring the tents and extremely large venue are half the fun here! Of course, the other half is the auction. The cars are great at all Barrett-Jackson auctions but here they are on a whole other level. Be aware that the parking here is vastly different, you may have to ride a bus to the actual event from the parking lot.
