Barrett-Jackson is revving up for the automotive event of the year when it returns to WestWorld of Scottsdale from January 22-30 to celebrate 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. This month’s Scottsdale auction will celebrate those milestones and deliver 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 preparing to host the world’s most exciting automotive lifestyle event to celebrate 50 years of ‘The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions,’” says Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “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. We’re proud of our heritage and the role we’ve played in the collector car hobby over the last half-century, and we can’t wait to continue this legacy, beginning with our flagship Scottsdale auction.”
The 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder set to cross the block at the event is among the “Holy Trinity” of hypercars and is one of the final 918s delivered that year. Another highly anticipated vehicle is the ultimate Pro-Touring muscle car: a 1967 Ford Mustang Eleanor Tribute Edition owned by seven-time Major League Baseball All Star and three-time World Series champion Buster Posey.
“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,” says 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.”
