“Our 2023 Scottsdale docket has one of the finest selections of luxury supercars you’ll find with No Reserve,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Some incredible examples from marques such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche speak to the breadth and diversity of our offering at WestWorld in Scottsdale. With an entirely No Reserve docket, which can only be found at Barrett-Jackson, our Scottsdale Auction will truly have something for everyone.”

The 1989 Ferrari F40 (Lot #1405.1) is a one-off example finished in Nardo Gray. Featuring its matching-numbers engine and gearbox, it was originally constructed as an early non-cat, non-adjust F40 and was delivered new to Kroymans Automotive, an official Ferrari dealer in Holland. After three years in the Netherlands, this F40 was rebuilt for racing by Peter van Erp of Cavallino Tuning, including a repaint in yellow, and was raced extensively by David Hart, Michel Oprey, Mike Hezemans, Bert Ploeg and H.W. te Pas. Upon its acquisition by the current owner, the F40 was shipped to the Zanasi Group of Maranello, Italy, the official Ferrari factory paint shop for supercars, tailor-made and Icona editions, where it received a cosmetic restoration to its current livery. Today, its final available horsepower output is between 700hp and near 1,000hp based on the setup.

With less than 3,400 miles on the odometer, a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT (Lot #1405) finished in red and also selling with No Reserve, features the full complement of never-used fitted luggage. One of only 644 examples sold new to the United States during its entire three-year production from 2004-06, the Carrera GT remains one of the most desirable analog supercars.  

One of only 500 built worldwide, a 2021 Ferrari SF90 (Lot #1391) features both its exterior and interior finished in Rosso Corsa DS 322. Boasting its nearly 1,000-horsepower hybrid engine, this supercar launches to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. This SF90 crossing the block in Scottsdale is optioned with carbon racing seats and a front-end lift. Another modern and desirable Prancing Horse crossing the block with No Reserve is a 2022 Ferrari F8 Tributo (Lot #1404) finished in a stunning Blu Tour de France exterior and powered by its twin-turbocharged, 3.9-liter, 710-horsepower V8 engine.

A 2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ (Lot #1407) with just 1,090 actual miles is another Italian supercar sure to attract great interest from bidders in Scottsdale. The Aventador SVJ has a naturally aspirated V12 mid-engine, multipoint fuel-injection system and longitudinal engine alignment producing 760 horsepower. It utilizes a carbon-fiber monocoque design and is capable of reaching 0 to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, with a maximum top speed of 218 mph. The extraordinary color of this supercar is a custom, one-of-a-kind Christian Louboutin “Red Bottom” shoe color, as it was originally ordered by a former Miss Universe contestant, who has a passion for Lamborghini and fashion. A brand-new pair of Christian Louboutin shoes were sent to the Lamborghini factory for precise color-matching. Continuing the beautiful synergy between this Lamborghini and fashion, a new pair of “Red Bottoms” in the original box will accompany the sale of this supercar.

“The supercars on the Scottsdale docket are highly coveted by collectors worldwide, especially those with low production and low mileage, which can be very difficult to find,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Each one will be offered with No Reserve, and I look forward to watching what is certain to be high-powered bidding for the chance to own one of these exclusive pieces of automotive performance.”

Lot #1382 is a 2012 Lexus LFA powered by a V10 engine producing 552 hp and 354 ft/lbs of torque. Finished in its original ordered color of Steel Gray Metallic, this highly desirable Lexus LFA is one of 156 made for the USA market and is being offered with the Lexus luggage with the VIN engraved, the Lexus LFA watch in the original LFA box and a hardbound LFA book.

Two 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS models (Lot #1392 and Lot #1406), each with the Weissach package, will cross the Scottsdale auction block with No Reserve. The fastest and most powerful 911 sold to the public, each of these German performance vehicles feature a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged engine producing approximately 700 horsepower.
