To date, Barrett-Jackson has raised more than $133 million for over 175 organizations through the sale of collectible vehicles.

“Giving back to communities has been at the heart of our company from the beginning,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Some of our greatest charity auction moments over the years have occurred in Las Vegas. We look forward to creating new memories this year as we support several worthy causes, both locally and nationally, alongside some amazing organizations like the Las Vegas Raiders, Gaudin Motor Company and Hendrick Motorsports.”

The Las Vegas Raiders and Gaudin Motor Company have teamed up for the ultimate fan collectible, a Badlands Raiders Edition 2021 Ford Bronco 4-Door (Lot #3002). Powered by a 2.7-liter EcoBoost, this fully outfitted Bronco featuring the Sasquatch Package will be wrapped in Las Vegas Raiders regalia and 100 percent of its sale will benefit the Las Vegas-based Grant A Gift Autism Foundation, as well as the Raiders Foundation.

Donated by Hendrick Motorsports, the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Hertz/Hendrick Motorsports Edition (Lot #3003) is #001 of only 24 commissioned, and is the most powerful ever offered. Under the hand-built carbon-fiber hood, a Callaway supercharger and intercooler pumps up the V8 to an incredible 750 horsepower. Its special appearance package features Hertz Yellow graphics with the HMS #24 logo, complemented by matching Hertz Yellow painted brake calipers. One hundred percent of the hammer price will benefit the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation.

“Each charity vehicle we auction is a symbol of the compassion and generosity of the collector car community,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s a blessing to witness the sale of vehicles that benefit organizations who support countless individuals and families in need. We will write another special chapter in our legacy with the sale of four charity vehicles in Las Vegas, each with their own special purpose and cause.”

Benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Detroit, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat AWD (Lot #3000) is one of only 3,000 built for the 2021 model year. Finished in Destroyer Gray with dual Gunmetal Stripes, it is powered by a 710 horsepower HEMI Hellcat V8 capable of a 0-60 time in 3.5 seconds. It comes equipped with the Premium Interior Group package and Harmon Kardon sound system.

Lot #3001 – 1956 Chevrolet 150

The 1956 Chevrolet 150 sedan (Lot #3001) was originally delivered to the Sioux Army Depot in 1956 and used as a staff car. After passing through two subsequent owners, it was carefully brought back into complete running order by the fourth owner. A true barn find, this rolling time capsule underwent a variety of repairs during its restoration. Powered by a 216ci inline-6 engine mated to a 3-speed manual transmission, this piece of history will be sold to benefit the Honor Flight Network.

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

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 Amazing Last V12 Production Versions from the Big Brands

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.
