The Scottsdale Auto auction rang in a cool $223.8 million. Cars of al types where sold for unbelievable prices. For example an old 1969 Ford Bronco hit half a million. The original Bat mobile, which was used to film Batman was sold at this auction for $4.62 million chump change for those millionaire out there.

Last weekend's classic-car auctions in Scottsdale, Ariz., totaled a blistering $223.8 million, yet another reminder that no price is too high for an old Ferrari. 

In fact, three Ferrari 250 GTs were among the 10 highest-grossing sales from all six auction companies, according to Hagerty, an insurer of collector cars. A 1958 California Spider, similar to the replica model seen in 
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off," sold for $8.25 million, while a 1960 Competizione Berlinetta went for $8.14 million.

Oddly enough, the 
original 1966 Batmobile seen in the TV series ranked third and swept $4.62 million, more than any other Porsche, Maserati or Mercedes. The only other American car to break the top 10 was a 1933 Duesenberg Model J Disappearing-Top Convertible at $2.69 million.
