Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.

Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions™ rolls into town Jan. 10 – 18, and the 44th annual auction promises fast cars, big headlines, a jam-packed social calendar and an abundance of other surprises when it makes its triumphant return to Scottsdale, where it all started.

Among the major highlights of this year’s auction is the sale of the Ron Pratte Collection, which includes the world-class businessman and car collector’s world-renowned lineup of rare collector cars, along with more than 1,000 pieces of automobilia. Pratte demands perfection in everything he has a hand in, and built the majority of his collection at previous Barrett-Jackson auctions, where he played an integral part in some of the most special moments on the auction block over the years.
This pristine collection includes Carroll Shelby’s personal vehicle – the only remaining 1966 Shelby Cobra Super Snake, that sold for a world record $5.5 million and a Pontiac Bonneville Special Concept Car, one of only two.

“This is arguably the most significant collection ever offered in Barrett-Jackson history,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We are so privileged to be given this opportunity to showcase Ron Pratte’s unparalleled offering.”

The Ron Pratte Collection, featuring cars and over a thousand pieces of automobilia, will be on the docket at Barrett-Jackson’s 44th Annual Scottsdale Auction, taking place January 10-18, 2015 with television coverage on Velocity and Discovery.
