LAS VEGAS 2014 THURSDAY HIGHLIGHTS

From the moment the National Anthem was sung to the final hammer, day one of Barrett-Jackson’s 7th Annual Las Vegas Auction was full of rumbling V8s and sparkling chrome. A packed house of bidders and observers watched more than 220 vehicles cross the block, from the oldest (a 1911 Ford Model T Convertible) to the newest (a 2013 Special Construction Café Racer motorcycle), including interesting conversation pieces like a 2001 Husqvarna 125 motorcycle ridden by Vin Diesel in the film “XXX” and a 2000 Jaguar XK8 Custom Convertible painted in British colors to resemble the Austin Powers car. What were the coolest cars of the day? Here are some notable stand-outs:

BARRETT-JACKSON KICKS OFF 2014 LAS VEGAS AUCTION, BEACH-STYLE

If there’s one thing Barrett-Jackson knows, you don’t become The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions™ without taking care of valued customers. To show appreciation for the bidders, consignors, vendors, and many others who are instrumental in making the Las Vegas Auction the spectacular event it has become, Barrett-Jackson threw a fabulous opening-night invitation-only gala Wednesday night at the Mandalay Bay Beach. After being greeted by none other than “Elvis Presley” and two cars associated with the King of Rock ‘n Roll—the ’63 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe (Lot #767.1) made famous in the film “Viva Las Vegas” and the ’67 Cadillac Coupe de Ville often referred to as Elvis and Priscilla’s “Honeymoon Cadillac” (Lot #767)—the more than 1,400 guests headed beachside. Delicious food, live music from the band Soul Survivor, and opening remarks from Barrett-Jackson Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson and President Steve Davis proved to be a fitting kickoff to what promises to be a record-breaking 7th Annual Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction.

NASCAR LEGEND RICHARD PETTY TO AUCTION RACE CAR FOR CHARITY AT BARRETT-JACKSON

All proceeds benefit Paralyzed Veterans of America 

Seven-time NASCAR Champion and NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Richard Petty has visited victory lane countless times, but no victory will be as powerful as the one about to happen Thursday at the 7th Annual Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction. “The King” will auction an important part of his racing history, with all proceeds going to Paralyzed Veterans of America.

Crossing the block at about 5 p.m. in the presence of Petty himself will be the iconic Petty Blue and STP Day-Glo red Ford Fusion race car created in 2012 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the legendary racing collaboration of STP and Richard Petty Motorsports. The famed race car was piloted by NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Aric Almirola in the 2012 STP 400 at Kansas Speedway. It was his first year driving for Richard Petty Motorsports, and Almirola, who is now in the hunt for the 2014 NASCAR Spring Cup Championship, was thrilled to be following in Petty’s footsteps by driving a car sporting both the renowned #43 and the commemorative colors.

The 2012 Ford Fusion boasts a 358 ROUSH Yates engine with a dry sump oil system, 12:1 compression ratio, and over 700 hp and 500 ft/lbs of torque. It comes complete with roller cam valve train and 830cfm Holley carburetor. The STP livery is same classic design driven by during the ’90s. The race car is in track-ready condition with race brakes, transmission, rear gear, seat, safety belts and safety systems.

Just as Barrett-Jackson has a longtime commitment to philanthropy since their first car auction back in 1971, Richard Petty and Richard Petty Motorsports have a long history of supporting Paralyzed Veterans of America through Barrett-Jackson events, raising more than $355,000 for the charity over the years. During the past four years, Paralyzed Veterans of America has raised over $1 million to help continue the important work they do for disabled veterans and their families. Barrett-Jackson is proud to partner with Richard Petty Motorsports and the one-and-only Richard Petty for this worthy cause.
