PALM BEACH, Fla. – April 2, 2018 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, is set to usher in a docket filled with extremely rare and exotic supercars during the 16th Annual Palm Beach Auction, April 12-15, 2018. One of the crown jewel supercars crossing the block is an extraordinary, restored ’72 Ferrari Dino 246 GT (Lot #722) with only 41,753 original miles. Modern supercars will also be a part of the auction action in Florida, including a 2012 Nürburgring Edition Lexus LFAs (Lot #724) that is one of only 50 made and will sell at No Reserve.
“Supercars, both classic and modern, ignite a passion inside all of us,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “They’ve come to represent the pinnacle of style and are something we all aspire to own. We’re excited that some of the best examples of supercars will cross our block in Palm Beach, including several rare models from the impressive South Florida Collection.”
Among the most anticipated of the modern-era supercars consigned for Palm Beach is a 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Custom Superleggera (Lot #725).
