World’s Most Coveted Supercars, Including Sammy Hagar’s 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari, 2018 Bugatti Chiron and 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder, Headed to Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ‒ January 9, 2024 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will offer some of the world’s most coveted supercars during the 2024 Scottsdale Auction, held January 20-28, 2024. Each of these supercars are masterpieces of automotive engineering, design and performance including Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar’s 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari (Lot #1385), one of the fastest production vehicles in the world, a 2018 Bugatti Chiron (Lot #1378) and a highly desirable 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder (Lot #1405) with only 1,534 actual miles.
“Some of the most sought-after supercars will cross our auction block in Scottsdale,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Many of these vehicles were produced in limited numbers, making them extremely difficult to obtain like Sammy’s LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 that make up two-thirds of the hypercar holy trinity. Each of these jaw-dropping vehicles represent the pinnacle of engineering and design of their time and will be an esteemed part of any collection.”
Custom designed by Hagar, the 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari (Lot #1385) features an elegant cream exterior, matching the color of a 1960s Ferrari that Hagar saw pictured on the wall at the Maranello factory during his visit in 2014. It is further enhanced by carbon-fiber and black accents that contribute to its visual appeal, capturing the essence of the Italian automotive artistry. With only 1,100 approximate miles, the LaFerrari boasts a remarkable hybrid powertrain, combining a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine with an electric motor. Together, the duo produces 949 horsepower, propelling the car from 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds and reaching a top speed of over 217 mph. The LaFerrari’s F1-inspired KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) ensures instant torque and lightning-fast acceleration, solidifying its track monster status. Included in the sale is a special replica model of the vehicle Hagar received as a gift from Ferrari.
The 2018 Bugatti Chiron (Lot #1378) is offered in an exposed blue and black carbon-fiber exterior over a blue interior featuring an abundance of carbon fiber and aluminum trim throughout.
