Barrett-JacksonĀ® Auctions are all about the price tags. In its over-forty year history, prices have soared and we've seen some of the most coveted automobiles of all-time drive across the auction block. But as we head towards Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2019 in January, we thought it would be a good time to look back at the highest selling cars in the history of Barrett-Jackson.
