A weekend of fun & fast rides was punctuated with emotion & remembrance. In honor of the fallen and the first responders, #LasVegasStrong was seen on several of the high-profile auction lots. Barrett-Jackson President Steve Davis decided to part ways with his Shelby GT500 Super Snake, which hammered for $1,000,000. It was purchased by Paulette Carpoff, the COO of DC Solar. All of the proceeds from these cars totaled over $1.1 Million. One hundred percent of the sales price was given to the UNLV Foundation, with funds directed to the UNLV School of Medicine Department of Emergency Medicine Residency Program Fund.

Front and center was Vanderhall Motor Works, with two flavors of their new Venice. n the middle of the mix was the “veiled” car. We often use Barrett Jackson events as the location to unveil the latest exotic builds. We had Craig Jackson and our Publisher take the wraps off of the Starke Revolution Speedster. If you can imagine a classic Porsche 356 on a new 718 Boxster S chassis, this is the car for you. It was very well received by the crowd that gathered to see it unveiled!

As far as custom builds, the Fusion Motor Co. Mustang Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds always draws attention from the crowd.
