The Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event has seen some nice hardware go for some incredible prices, including the new 2013 Chevy Corvette 427 Convertible, the  2013 Ford Shelby GT500 prototype, and a range of vintage, classic, and barn find cars.

The 2012 Ford Focus ST-R gets put through its paces by Tanner Foust, with a video showing the race hatch's abilties.

And, unfortunately, just because the Ferrari F430 has been superceded by the 458 Italia, it doesn't mean it's safe from the incompetence of new buyers. A test drive in Kuala Lumpur has ended in shrapnel and tears.
