Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2017 Preview

By Allie Shriver December 08, 2016

Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale will be here before we know it! We are so excited to make our way to Scottsdale for a week of car bliss. Not only are we excited to see the auction, we’re excited to experience Barrett-Jackson unlike ever before. VIP hospitality is just the start, we’re really looking forward to the  behind-the-scenes tour!


On this tour, you see how the auction goes down, the stage, and how the cars are prepped on the staging lanes. Keep your eyes open, Craig Jackson loves to wander around during our tour.

While the behind-the-scenes tour is epic, we really can’t wait to see all of the cars. This year has a solid line up. Like most everyone, we have a few must-sees on our list. Let’s look at our top three cars this year!

1957 Jaguar Xk140 MC Roadster


Exterior Color    RED

Interior Color     BLACK

Cylinders              6

Engine Size         3.4L

Transmission      4-SPEED MANUAL

This is the dream car of James Bond enthusiasts. It exudes classic British charm and excellence in every way! This timeless beauty is 60 years old and has never looked better. Can’t you just see yourself driving down the Pacific Coast Highway with the wind in your hair like the star you truly are?


1969 Chevrolet Camaro Indy Pace Car Convertible


Exterior Color    WHITE/ORANGE

Interior Color     ORANGE

Cylinders              3

Engine Size         350CI

Transmission      4-SPEED AUTOMATIC

This Chevrolet is a must-have for any car collector. In February of 1969, Chevrolet announced that the public could order an Indy 500 Pace Car replica. There were only 3,675 units produced making this car a hard find. You can see it in all of its glory in Scottsdale.


2012 Hennessey Venom Gt Spyder "Steven Tyler's"


Exterior Color    BLACK

Interior Color     BLACK

Cylinders              8

Engine Size         427

Transmission      6-SPEED MANUAL

This car is sheer beauty. I mean, look at it–it’s gorgeous. This extremely rare Hennessey Venom GT Spyder comes from the personal collection of THE Steven Tyler. Only 12 Hennessey Venom GTs have ever been created and this is the first of the Spyder convertibles. Surprised this car is up for auction at all? Don’t be, 100% of the hammer price is going to Janie’s Fund, Steven Tyler’s initiative with “Youth Villages to bring hope and healing for many of our country’s most vulnerable girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect.”
