Though many reasons to make the pilgrimage to Scottsdale for the annual Barrett-Jackson Car Auction exist, we all know the main attraction will be the duPont REGISTRY booth. We make sure to have a wild variety of toys on display, here’s a tentative preview:
These heavy duty rigs are ready for the apocalypse thanks to a few tons of steel armor. With the Terradyne Gurkha RPV Civilian Edition, bad guys are going to need something more powerful than a .50 caliber Browning to get inside.
The well-known organization that houses the families of ill children always has a highly optioned Corvette with proceeds going to help those same children. Last year the Ronald McDonald House displayed their 1963 Split-Window Coupe, but this year the charity will arrive in a 2016 Corvette Z06 Convertible in stunning Laguna Blue. And yes, the supercar has the Z07 package which might look familiar as the option was featured on the Uncovered page in duPont REGISTRY’s July 2015 issue.
If customized Wranglers make you smile, we will have two potent examples from their team of master fabricators. The gray one on the left retains the original V6, and the Hot Rod next to it packs a 6.4 HEMI with side exhaust.
If you need the convenience and reliability of a 22 mpg from a twin turbo diesel V6 along with all the creature comforts of home, Airstream’s interpretation of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is your next RV. Our favorite feature allows us to use the 120v system along with their massive battery capacity to keep our booth electronics charged.
Wide Open Baja:
This all-inclusive weekend excursion begins at the San Diego Airport and culminates with blasting down the Baja Peninsula in a Subaru flat-four powered buggy.
Amphibians are common here in Florida, but for those who’ve never seen a boat that also happens to feature 8-wheel drive, Argo will have several new versions of their ATVs.
Still reading? Time to get the Scottsdale trip itinerary in order. The auction is shaping up to be one of the biggest of the year. Stay tuned to Autofluence for updates and a sneak peak at our booth.
