The sales till Saturday evening had topped $116 million even before bidders competed for some of Barrett-Jackson’s most valuable cars. A 2006 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione is tipped to be the top selling car of the week.

The Ferrari is a 860 horsepower race car that was auctioned on Friday and fetched a price of $2.09 million at the Gooding and Co. auction after some vigorous bidding. RM Auctions were also excited about the action at their auctions that saw record sales of $30.8 million with the top seller being a 1949 Ferrari 166 MM Touring Barchetta that sold for $1.87 million.
