Crazy Fast, Exotic Cars at the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction!

WARNING: For anyone who is not a total gear-head like me, this post may be of little or no interest to you. That being said, you have to admit…half-million AND MILLION dollar cars are pretty cool no matter what you think about cars, right? Yep, that’s what I thought. 😉

This was my second time going to the annual Barrett Jackson Auto Auction and Car Show, which plays host to 250,000 people every year. It is a week long event that features some of the most amazing classic cars, modern day super cars, and even vintage and new race cars. Truly an epic event for anyone who is a car nut like me.

There is a new class of super-ultra-cars that are incredibly light weight, high in horsepower, and well, insanely fast. Those are usually my favorite cars to hang around, so I took most of my pics/video of these rare, exotic monsters.

I took my Flip Mino HD and digital camera to the event grab some footage/pics. Some of the most epic vehicles:

Koenigsegg CCX
Koenigsegg CCX

600 hp Twin Turbocharged V8
1984lbs (it’s a damn racecar)
Price: Auctioned off for only $145,000. This is the deal of a century. Some day this car may be worth MILLLLLLLLIONS of dollars!

Better start saving up!

  1. Amazing collection of cars. I like Gumpert Apollo with looks sports car. I like the Cadillac LMP-02 now is a great time to buy stuff if you have lots of cash

  2. Nate I am jealous. I’ve seen the Barrett Jackson auction on tv before. Those cars are so sweet. I found myself planning what car to someday get when I sell my mustang years down the road.

  3. One day I’d like to go the Barret Jackson auction in person too. It must be so awesome seeing all of those cars up close and personal.

  4. It would be a personal dream of mine to own any of these fast cars, I would seriously probably be around the car all day, and I could probably stare in amazement at it for days on end! I would probably clean the car every chance I get, and do it by hand, no way could I risk taking it to a auto car wash.

  5. Very nice car man, I would be so nervous if I drove that car around. But I don’t have to ever worry about that because I won’t ever have a million dollar car anyhow.

  6. Despite a down economy, 2010 will see plenty of new exotic cars and luxury cars hit the streets. New models from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lotus, Porsche, and more will be on the market in 2010, so find out here what to keep an eye out for in the new year.

  7. i have no words to describe this fantastic model : Koenigsegg CCX

    It simply awesome with heart stirring looks. A Rocking model it is 😉
