In keeping with their dedication to supporting local and national charities, Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, will auction off the 2017 Acura NSX VIN #001 as part of its 45th Anniversary Scottsdale Auction scheduled for January 23-31 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Acura’s first “built-to-order” supercar, the #001 offers customers the opportunity to customize everything from seating surface to wheel design and more. Customers will also have carbon options including roof and sports package among many other features. The #001 is one of the most anticipated vehicles in this year’s charity car lineup. The highest bidder will have the opportunity to fully customize their prized #001.
Barrett-Jackson has reportedly raised more than $84.6 million for charities both local and national. They plan to donate 100 percent of the final hammer price of the #001 to famed country star Zac Brown’s Camp Southern Ground as well as the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
Other highly anticipated vehicles for this year’s 45th Anniversary auction include the iconic Optimus Prime® and Bumblebee™ from the “Transformers™” movie franchise. The 1992 Peterbilt 379 features custom aluminum bumper and wheels—both mirror-finished—and tinted windows to give the allusions that Optimus Prime does, indeed drive himself. Bumblebee, the sleek, matte black 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS, is fully equipped with a fuel-injected V8 engine and overdrive manual transmission. Easily recognizable Bumblebee trademarks include the attention grabbing yellow spoiler and extra-wide Nitto tires encased in enormous carbon fiber flares.
Looking for other exclusives at the 45th Anniversary Auction? Barrett-Jackson will also be offering the 2015 Porsche Spyder Weissach. At just 918 units created and sold, the 918 Spyder caught the attention of many in 2013, but only a select few can call themselves owners of the e-hybrid hypercar. With the pairing of a 608hp 4.6 liter V8 and twin electric motors, which add 154hp to the rear and 125hp to the front, it’s no surprise that automobile enthusiasts are eager to get their hands on the combined 887hp supercar. Great excitement centers around this coveted Barrett-Jackson Salon Collection Offering. As if the incredible performance isn’t enough, Porsche pushed the limits, and then set the bar in creating a stunning, sustainable vehicle that retains the fun, fast features the car enthusiast craves.
