SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ‒ January 26, 2022 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will continue to raise funds and awareness for charities across the country with the sale of three Ford-powered vehicles during the company’s 50th anniversary celebration at WestWorld of Scottsdale, January 22-30. The trio of Ford-powered charity vehicles crossing the Scottsdale block include a one-off 2021 Ford Bronco “Bronco 66” First Edition (Lot #3001), a 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 continuation car (Lot#3002) and the first production 2022 Ford Shelby GT500KR (Lot #3006).

“We’re continuing our legacy of giving back to our communities with many incredible charity vehicles crossing the block in Scottsdale,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Over the last 50 years, some of the most special auction moments occurred when our generous bidders raised their hands to support these charities. Many of these vehicles were first production and VIN 001 models generously donated by manufacturers and I look forward to the new memories we’ll create in Scottsdale this week when ten vehicles cross the block for charity.”

The first production 2022 Ford Shelby GT500KR (Lot #3006) is the first of only 60 “King of the Road” models that will be built to honor Shelby American’s 60th anniversary. Based on the world-class Ford Shelby GT500, the KR boasts over 900 horsepower, has a carbon-fiber hood, custom wheels, tires, suspension tuning, interior and anniversary badges. Only 180 total (60 per model year 2020-22) will be available in the U.S., with another 45 overseas. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Carroll Shelby Foundation and JDRF.

The 2021 Ford Bronco “Bronco 66” first edition (Lot #3001) honors the birth of the legendary SUV. The custom build is inspired by the 1966 Bronco and the robust, fully loaded SUV is based on the 2021 First Edition Bronco, which includes seven G.O.A.T. modes to go over any type of terrain. It is powered by a 2.7-liter V6 EcoBoost engine that delivers approximately 310 horsepower mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and a 2-speed Advanced 4×4 system. One-hundred percent of the hammer price of “Bronco 66” will benefit the Pope Francis Center.

“It’s so incredible to see the good that comes from the sale of charity vehicles on our auction block,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “From funding medical research and providing needed care for our nation’s military and first responder heroes, to supporting higher education for students, the reach and impact from each vehicle sale is immeasurable. We are all blessed to be a part of this collector car community, which is so willing to help those in need.”

Lot #3002 is a continuation 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C (CSX6086) and will be auctioned to benefit the Mayo Clinic. NASCAR Cup Series diver Aric Almirola will also be on the block in support of this charity auction. The roadster is powered by a Shelby Engine Company 482ci V8 built by Yates and factory-rated at 540 horsepower and 565 ft/lbs of torque. It features a hand-laid Shelby fiberglass body finished in black with red Le Mans stripes mounted atop a 4-inch diameter DOM steel frame.

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.
