Barrett-Jackson will kick off 2017 with a world-class Gala and star-studded docket during its 46th Annual Scottsdale Auction, Jan. 14-22, 2017, at WestWorld of Scottsdale. The Scottsdale Auction docket is taking shape with early highlights, such as Steven Tyler’s personal 2012 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder selling for charity and the 1960 Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle (CERV) 1 used by Zora Arkus-Duntov in his advancements of the Corvette in the 1960s.
Tyler’s rare supercar is the fifth of only 12 Hennessey Venom GTs ever created and first of the Spyder convertibles. In March 2016, it recorded a top speed of 265.6 mph, making it the world’s fastest convertible sports car. It will cross the auction block at No Reserve, with 100 percent of the hammer price benefiting the charity Janie’s Fund.
The historic CERV 1 belonging to the “Father of the Corvette,” Zora Arkus-Duntov, has served as his personal testbed for what became the Chevrolet Corvette in the 1960s.
