Barrett-Jackson has returned to WestWorld of Scottsdale, January 22-30, celebrating 50 years of The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions. The annual Scottsdale Auction has hosted some of the most electrifying moments in collector car history over the last five decades.
January’s Scottsdale Auction celebrates those milestones and delivers an action-packed automotive lifestyle event filled with an incredible collector car docket, the latest vehicles from top automakers, symposiums on a variety of automotive-related topics, and hundreds of exhibits and displays. Among the collector cars set to cross the block with No Reserve is an extremely rare 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder, one of only 918 of the hybrid hypercars produced worldwide.
“We’re going to kick off 2022 with one of our greatest events to date filled with prized collectible vehicles that are destined to be remembered,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Over the years we’ve built a collector car family that is truly the heart of this hobby. I can’t think of a better way to speed into our next 50 years than with an amazing celebration this January.”
Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson said: “When my father Russ and his business partner, Tom Barrett, set out to raise money for the Scottsdale library with a local car show, they had no idea the impact they would have on the collector hobby over the next five decades.”
In addition to rare hypercars and customs, Barrett-Jackson’s diverse Scottsdale docket will include a 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake that is one of only three continuation Super Snakes authorized by Shelby. Also selling with No Reserve, this one-owner car, CSX4404, is powered by a 427ci V8 engine with twin Paxton superchargers mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. This Cobra comes complete with its Build Sheet and the original Shelby Automobiles, Inc., MSO signed by Carroll himself, as well as his signature on the dashboard.
The legendary music icon, entrepreneur and renowned philanthropist Bret Michaels will be a part of the company’s 50th Anniversary celebration during the 2022 Scottsdale Auction with the sale of his personal 2007 Bentley Continental GT. Michaels’ Bentley will cross the world-famous auction block on Friday, January 28, as Michaels will donate a portion of its proceeds to his Life Rocks Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3).
In addition, GRAMMY Award-winning artist Pitbull will accompany a 2022 Karma GS-6 as it crosses the world-famous auction block to benefit The SLAM Foundation and Selfless Love Foundation - two charities focused on bettering the lives of underserved youth.
