SPICE OF LIFE: Barrett-Jackson Presents the Flying Marlin Collection
Lot #183 – 1959 Studebaker Scotsman Pickup will be selling with No Reserve at our 2022 Scottsdale Auction.

The diversity inherent in the collector car hobby spans to all manner of motorized vehicles. While each one is different, they all share an important thing in common – they’re all somebody’s favorite. Offered at the 2022 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction – all with No Reserve – is the Flying Marlin Collection, an assemblage of 14 incredible vehicles ready to make their mark this January.

“We celebrate the diversity of styles and designs in the collector car hobby,” said Barrett-Jackson Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson. “Each collector is a different person with different tastes and expectations, and recognizing this diversity is why Barrett-Jackson has remained The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions for over 50 years.”

Lot #1406 – 2019 Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder

The Flying Marlin Collection brings to the fold the pinnacle of driving excitement, a 2019 Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder. It’s impossible not to feel the thrill this raging bull possess; the Nero Nemesis flat black paint captures the surrounding light while the wedge-like shapes and contours take hold of the imagination. No one does dramatic style better than Lamborghini. The Huracán Performante was designed by the most capable engineers and honed by the sharpest drivers. The coupe version went so far as to set eight lap records and claim the fastest production car lap time around the Nürburgring. The Spyder brings forth all of the coupe’s unbridled performance – without a roof. The 5.2-liter V10’s sonorous 640 horsepower serenades and the snap, crackle, pop of the exhaust adds for a wonderful rhythm section. The rampaging bull can sprint to 60 mph in less than three seconds, thanks to its all-wheel drive system and boasts Lamborghini’s patented ALA active aerodynamic system.

From Lamborghini’s bleeding edge to its humble origins, the Flying Marlin Collection is also pleased to offer a 1966 Lamborghini 1R tractor signed by the only authorized Lamborghini tractor restoration company, Garage 961, and signed on the engine cover by Fabio Lamborghini.

Lot #1271 – 2020 Shelby GT500

If world-beating performance from Detroit is more your speed, then the 2020 Shelby GT500 in this collection is for you. Engineered as the pinnacle of American muscle, the 2020 GT500 is ready to attack on all fronts. It will rip through the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds, hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and reach a limited top speed of 180 mph. Scarily quick and proud to deliver on its Shelby heritage, the GT500 is powered by a 760-horsepower supercharged V8 subtly known as the “Predator.” This example is finished in Velocity Blue and features exposed carbon fiber, RECARO leather-trimmed seats, Handling Package and Technology Package.

Lot #1275 – 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo Custom Coupe

For those inclined to push beyond the factory limits, a 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo has you covered. Elevating Stuttgart’s finest to the maximum, this 911 has been upgraded to the nines thanks to the ultimate bolt-on package born from Porsche tuning specialists Evolution Motorsports. With a host of upgrades aimed at improving the breathing and cooling of the 3.8-liter flat-6, the EVT770 reaches another level of performance, taking the Turbo’s already impressive 580 horsepower and bringing it to a dyno-proven 771 horsepower and 773 ft/lbs of torque on 100 octane.

“Nobody displays the diversity of the collector car world better than Barrett-Jackson,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “We couldn’t be more honored to host The Flying Marlin Collection as we celebrate our 50th year.” With 14 distinct rides stepping into the spotlight, it seems fair to ask – what’s your favorite?

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

on

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.
