FROM ACROSS THE POND: European Appeal on the Barrett-Jackson Block
2024 PALM BEACH AUCTION – 2008 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM – NO RESERVE

Fine automobiles from the other side of the Atlantic have long been turning heads stateside, and the appeal is evident at every Barrett-Jackson auction.

Europe is undeniably the birthplace and world leader of the automobile industry. From the invention of combustion-engine vehicles in 1886 by Karl Benz, the founder of Mercedes-Benz, to the present day, Europe has given the world a remarkable array of car brands ranging from luxurious sports cars to more budget-friendly vehicles. Unquestionably, though, it’s the highly desirable luxury brands that attract the most attention on the Barrett-Jackson block.

Owning an exceptional European car is undeniably a sign of prestige and luxury, and there’s the added attraction of exclusivity: European car manufacturers produce a limited number of vehicles each year, making them highly sought-after.

European cars are in a class of their own when it comes to precision engineering, sophisticated design, cutting-edge technology and advanced safety features. While luxury cars from Europe are highly performance-oriented, they also exhibit exquisite craftsmanship, particularly when it comes to the sumptuous interiors, which often feature the finest premium leather, wood trim and a remarkable attention to comfort. From the stitching on leather seats to the placement of buttons on the dashboard, every detail is carefully considered.

On the Barrett-Jackson auction block in Florida you’ll see impeccable offerings from England that include Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Bentley and Land Rover. Italian automotive manufacturing will be well-represented by some stunning Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati models, while examples of renowned German engineering will be on display in the Porsches, BMWs and Mercedes-Benzes on offer.

To whet your appetite for European excellence at the 2024 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, check out these examples, all of which will be selling with No Reserve, April 18-20 at the South Florida Fairgrounds. Register to bid today!

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
