Lot #3003 – 2009 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake benefiting Samaritan’s Purse

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – April 4, 2022Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, has a longstanding reputation for helping those in need around the world with the sale of charity cars during each of their auctions. Continuing that tradition, Barrett-Jackson will auction two vehicles, one from the George Shinn Collection and one from Mark Pieloch’s American Muscle Car Museum Collection, together as a pair to benefit Samaritan’s Purse and its humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine.

“We are proud to work with such generous individuals like George and Mark who have graciously donated these two vehicles to support those suffering in Ukraine,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “To date, we have helped raise over $144 million for charitable causes around the world and we are pleased that during our return to Palm Beach this week, we can be a platform for raising funds to support the men, women and children of Ukraine that need it now more than ever.”

Offered from the world-class George Shinn Collection is a 2009 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake (Lot #3003) that will support Samaritan’s Purse for disaster relief and emergency medical care in Ukraine. This low-mileage 750 horsepower Shelby Super Snake is powered by a supercharged 4-cam 5.4-liter V8 engine backed by a 6-speed manual transmission with a 3.73:1 rear end. Finished in Vapor Silver Metallic paint, the car features a carbon-composite hood with full-width scoops and hold-down pins, a carbon fiber front splitter, mirror covers and rocker panels. Carroll Shelby signed the black interior of this Super Snake, which is No. 309 built in 2009.

The matching-numbers Official Indy Pace Car 1986 Chevrolet Corvette convertible (Lot #3003.1) also benefiting Samaritan’s Purse is offered from the renowned American Muscle Car Museum out of Melbourne, Fla. It is one of 735 built and is powered by a tuned-port fuel-injected 350/235hp paired to a 4-speed automatic transmission with only 9,325 actual miles. Finished in yellow with a graphite interior and a black convertible top, it is the first year with anti-lock brakes. Documentation with the vehicle also includes the Window Sticker and Build Sheet.

“The generosity of our consignors and bidders continues to amaze me more and more at every Barrett-Jackson auction,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “The opportunity to play a role in providing much needed support to the men, women and children suffering in Ukraine right now is something I’m very honored to be a part of. I want to thank George and Mark for their incredible kindness, and I look forward to what will surely be a spectacularly memorable moment when these two cars cross our auction block in Palm Beach.”

Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine. Through their international crisis response efforts, Samaritan’s Purse has been on the ground in Ukraine providing medical care, food, water and non-food items such as blankets and hygiene kits for those in need. Most recently, on March 23, a fifth Samaritan’s Purse airlift departed carrying more than 19 tons of relief, including medical supplies for area hospitals as they work to strengthen the logistics and supply chain for the suffering medical system in Ukraine.

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.
