Lot #3000 – 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V First Retail Production VIN 001

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ‒ June 20, 2022 – Barrett-Jackson, the World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will auction the first retail production 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V, the industry’s most powerful full-size SUV and first-ever Cadillac V-Series SUV, during the 2022 Las Vegas Auction, June 30 – July 2. This highly anticipated VIN 001 Escalade-V will cross the world-famous auction block on Friday, July 1 at approximately 4:30 p.m. PT to benefit the Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design (Pensole), Michigan’s new and only Historically Black College or University (HBCU).

“Barrett-Jackson was founded on the principle of supporting those in need, dating back to the first ever event held by my parents and their business partner Tom Barrett, a charity car show in 1967 to raise funds for the Scottsdale library,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “To date, we’ve helped raise nearly $148 million for charitable initiatives around the world, and with the support of companies like General Motors donating highly desirable first production vehicles such as this VIN 001 Escalade-V, we also bring maximum awareness to these important endeavors.”

The recently unveiled 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V (Lot #3000) is powered by a hand-built 6.2-liter supercharged V8 producing 682hp and 653 ft-lbs of torque. Cadillac expects the Escalade-V to be capable of 0-60 sprints in under 4.4 seconds. Drivers can personalize their experience behind the wheel through the Cadillac exclusive V-Mode, which adjusts suspension settings, steering, brake pedal feel, engine sound, engine performance and more. Technology and comfort are weaved throughout the interior with features such as a curved OLED cluster with 38 inches of total diagonal display and twice the pixel density of a 4k TV. The AKG Studio Reference 36-speaker Audio System includes interior microphones to amplify voices for clear communication between the front and rear of the cabin. The winning bidder of the VIN 001 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V will select their preferred Cadillac dealer, and their order will be delivered by that dealer.

One hundred percent of the hammer price for the first retail production Escalade-V will benefit Pensole. Reestablished in 2021 under the leadership of its founder and prominent designer in the footwear industry, Dr. D’Wayne Edwards, Pensole is the pipeline HBCU for career education and professional development in the product creation industry.

In addition to the Escalade-V, the winning bidder will also have the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Edwards to design a pair of custom sneakers that will be manufactured as a one-of-one run.

“On behalf of everyone at the Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design, we’re thrilled to collaborate with Barrett-Jackson and Cadillac as the beneficiary for the auction of the first-ever V-series Escalade,” said Dr. Edwards. “Car enthusiasts know better than most that the art of design goes beyond the eyes and into the soul. From what we wear to what we drive, design is an expression of who we are, and we’re proud that the proceeds of this auction are an investment in the next generation of creative design.”

“D’Wayne and the Pensole team are doing incredible work to inspire and nurture young minds to pursue creative careers. Further, the HBCU connection is especially personal to me given my family’s ties to that meaningful legacy,” said Crystal Windham, Executive Director of Industrial Design at General Motors. “Design is a critical element of innovation at Cadillac and across GM – great design connects us to our customers on an emotional level, and we want those products to speak to our commitment to inclusion. Pensole and GM share a goal of making Design a more accessible and inclusive field, building a diverse pipeline of creative talent and having it show in the future products we create.”

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
