“Late-model supercars were among our most sought-after collector cars during our Scottsdale Auction in January with several fetching over $1 million,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The appeal of these vehicles goes much deeper than just their visceral beauty and design as many of them have an illustrious heritage that spans generations, from iconic moments in motorsports history to current Formula One racing.

It also sports the Frozen White No. 1 hood and door graphics with red brake calipers and silver rearview mirror caps completing the look.

“Vehicles like these have a way of making our hearts beat just a little faster when we hear their beautiful exhaust notes,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Their appeal reaches across generations of collectors and enthusiasts who appreciate superb performance and design. I’m excited about the supercars and sports cars we already have consigned for our Palm Beach Auction and look forward to the energy in the arena when they cross the auction block with No Reserve.”

Speed Read: A garage-built Ducati 996 café racer and more

custom motorcycle news 190 745x497 1

The latest café racers, flat trackers, and electric scooters.
We kick things off with a feel-good story of a botched Ducati 996 custom job, rescued by a talented garage builder. Then we look at a dazzling Yamaha SR500 flat tracker from 20-year-old Moritz Bree, a dustbin-faired Honda Dax from K-Speed, and a BMW CE 04 scooter from Deus ex Machina.

Ducati 996 café racer by Jaron Hall
Ducati 996 by Jaron Hall Most people would balk at the idea of customizing a Ducati 996, but Utah-based garage builder Jaron Hall’s work on this 996 is nothing short of noble. That’s because when Jaron got his hands on the 996, it was in dire need of saving.

The Ducati’s previous owner had tried to turn it into a scrambler, so it came to Jaron with no fairings, a hacked subframe, and a smorgasbord of sketchy parts. Working after hours (he has a marketing day job), and taking on the entire build solo, Jaron turned the mongrel 996 into a high-class Italian café racer.
