Click above for a high-res gallery of the supercars at Barrett-Jackson

Although muscle cars are usually in the spotlight at Barrett-Jackson, there were quite a few interesting supercars that caught our attention as well. First up was a Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo done up in stunning Beryllium custom paint. This particular car served as a press vehicle for Saleen and was featured in the movie Redline (who cares?), and Iron Man (cool!). Did we mention it also has the one-and-only 1,000-horsepower upgrade done by the factory. The winning bidder took the car home for $412,000. For a little more than half that much, another bidder took home one of the ultimate supercars of the last decade, a 1993 Jaguar XJ220. Other examples sold in the past few years have gone for a mere fraction of the original list price, and we think this car was well sold at the coincidental price of $220,000, perhaps due to its DOT/EPA certification. For those looking for a supercar on a budget, there was a 1996 Vector M12, one of only 14 built with just 6,388 miles, that sold for a mere $94,600. Other exotics that crossed the block included a Hennessey Venom 700R that sold for $115,500 and an Ultima Can-Am purchased for $51,700.

      Is it just me or does the Vector have the tail lights from an early ninties cavalier?

      That S7 has been wrecked too...one of the Henchmen of the redline producer clipped a tole booth on the 73....FYI. Then had a earl scheib orange paint job done on it to save money, and finally left it a Saleen when he lost it all and they had to clean up his mess. The guys at saleen must have cried when they got that thing back......also, that Vector was a dream car of mine when I was a kid, but once i saw one up close....ewwwww, what a POS.

      WOW! Those cars are just awesome.

      Hey AB, if you want to get more of my clicks (like you don't get enough) put more pictures of Saleens and I will click through each and every one of them! :)

      That Viper is probably one of the meanest I've seen. And the Can-Am looks like it would be fun to cruise around in on a weekend.

      That Vector is one of my favorite cars in Gran Turismo II... Too bad that's probably as close as I'll get to actually driving it.
