Lot 1378 – 2018 Bugatti Chiron

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ‒ January 9, 2024 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will offer some of the world’s most coveted supercars during the 2024 Scottsdale Auction, held January 20-28, 2024. Each of these supercars are masterpieces of automotive engineering, design and performance including Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar’s 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari (Lot #1385), one of the fastest production vehicles in the world, a 2018 Bugatti Chiron (Lot #1378) and a highly desirable 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder (Lot #1405) with only 1,534 actual miles.

Lot #1385 – Sammy Hagars 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari

“Some of the most sought-after supercars will cross our auction block in Scottsdale,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Many of these vehicles were produced in limited numbers, making them extremely difficult to obtain like Sammy’s LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 that make up two-thirds of the hypercar holy trinity. Each of these jaw-dropping vehicles represent the pinnacle of engineering and design of their time and will be an esteemed part of any collection.”

Custom designed by Hagar, the 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari (Lot #1385) features an elegant cream exterior, matching the color of a 1960s Ferrari that Hagar saw pictured on the wall at the Maranello factory during his visit in 2014. It is further enhanced by carbon-fiber and black accents that contribute to its visual appeal, capturing the essence of the Italian automotive artistry. With only 1,100 approximate miles, the LaFerrari boasts a remarkable hybrid powertrain, combining a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine with an electric motor. Together, the duo produces 949 horsepower, propelling the car from 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds and reaching a top speed of over 217 mph. The LaFerrari’s F1-inspired KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) ensures instant torque and lightning-fast acceleration, solidifying its track monster status. Included in the sale is a special replica model of the vehicle Hagar received as a gift from Ferrari.

The 2018 Bugatti Chiron (Lot #1378) is offered in an exposed blue and black carbon-fiber exterior over a blue interior featuring an abundance of carbon fiber and aluminum trim throughout. Capable of a zero-to-60 mph time of 2.3 seconds and a top speed of 261 mph, it is powered by an 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine that utilizes four turbochargers to produce 1,500 horsepower. It features a 7-speaker 3D stereo from Accuton, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, automatic climate control, carbon frame Sport seats and carbon and aluminum elements throughout.

Lot 1405 – 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder

Lot #1405 is a 1,534-actual-mile, paint-to-sample Acid Green 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder. Powered by a mid-mounted 608 horsepower V8 engine, it is #891 of only 918 built worldwide. This Porche Spyder comes highly optioned with a front-lift system, stone guard, lightweight bucket seats, seat pad, cup holder, leather interior in Onyx Black with Acid Green piping, seat belts with Acid Green accents, carbon floor mats with Acid Green piping and other CXX Special Wishes options.

Previously owned by the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, Lot #1407 is a 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster representing one of just 132 produced for the U.S. market between 1997 and 1999. Ordered new by Trump and driven by the former president until he sold it in 2002, this Diablo was finished in Blue Le Mans and represents the only one in this color from 1997. This Diablo is powered by a mid-mounted 5.7-liter V12 engine that channels 492 hp at 7,000 rpm and 430 ft/lbs of torque through a 5-speed manual transmission and all-wheel-drive system. The Viscous Traction system redirects torque to the front wheels when needed, resulting in superior traction and enabling the car to rocket to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 202 mph.

A 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition (Lot #1380) is one of two 2012 LFA’s set to cross the auction block with No Reserve. Powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine producing 552hp, it is finished in orange over black and is one of just 25 Nürburgring editions for the U.S. market. Lot #1417.1 is an Absolutely Red 2012 Lexus LFA with just 182 actual miles. It is powered by a V10 engine producing 552hp and 354 ft/lbs. of torque and is equipped with a 6-speed Automated Sequential Gearbox (ASG) with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Limited to just 500 examples worldwide, this is one of only 156 produced for the U.S. market and included in the sale is the Lexus luggage with the car’s VIN engraved.

Two additional Ferraris crossing the block on Super Saturday include the 2017 F12 TDF (Lot #1386) and 2023 SF90 Stradale (Lot #1383). The F12 is powered by a

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.
