Barrett-Jackson Celebrates 50 Years of Auctions and Community in 2022 – After a couple of down years due to COVID-19, auction giant Barrett-Jackson is celebrating its 50th anniversary in Scottsdale this week.
Out of all the cars involved in the auctions this week, a few rise above the rest for rarity and desirability. Though all of the cars will be auctioned off with no reserve, the three cars listed here should easily attract big-dollar bids.
2014 McLaren P1
McLaren built just 375 units of the world’s first hybrid supercar, all of which sold out shortly after its introduction. The car features a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 paired with an electric motor making a combined 903 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. This 2334-mile example is finished in McLaren F1 Racing Chrome, and features desirable options such as ceramic brakes and a Meridian sound system.
2015 Porsche 918
The 918 is an absolute masterpiece of a car, and with just 918 units produced, it’s also one of the rarest vehicles on the planet. The screaming naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V8 works with two electric motors to produce a total of 887 hp and 944 lb-ft of torque. This one has just 377 miles and features a gorgeous white-over-red color scheme.
2020 Ford GT Carbon Series
Ford created an exclusive and highly desirable supercar that easily competes with the most ferocious cars from Europe. The GT’s starting price of $500,000 is staggering, but its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 is equally impressive. Producing 660 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque, the engine is capable of propelling the car to 60 mph from a standstill in around three seconds and on to a top speed of around 215 mph. This one features the Carbon Series package, which shaves around 40 pounds from the already svelte supercar.
