SPICE OF LIFE: Barrett-Jackson Unveils Flying Marlin Collection


Lot #183 – 1959 Studebaker Scotsman Pickup will sell without reserve at our 2022 Scottsdale auction.

The diversity inherent in the collector car hobby extends to all types of motorized vehicles. While each one is different, they all share one important thing in common: they are all someone’s favorite. On offer at the 2022 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, All No Reserve, is the Flying Marlin Collection, a collection of 14 incredible vehicles ready to make their mark this January.

“We celebrate the diversity of styles and designs in the collector car hobby,” said Barrett-Jackson President and CEO Craig Jackson. “Each collector is a different person with different tastes and expectations, and recognizing this diversity is why Barrett-Jackson has remained the world’s largest collector car auction for more than 50 years.”

The Flying Marlin collection brings to the fold the pinnacle of driving excitement, a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder 2019. It is impossible not to feel the emotion that this brave bull possesses; flat black Nero Nemesis paint captures the surrounding light, while wedge-shaped shapes and contours capture the imagination. No one does dramatic styling better than Lamborghini. The Huracán Performante was designed by the most capable engineers and honored by the most intelligent drivers. The coupé version went on to set eight lap records and claim the fastest lap time for a production car at the Nürburgring. The Spyder features all the unbridled performance of the coupe, without the roof. The sonorous serenades of 640 horsepower from the 5.2-liter V10 and the click, crackle and pop of the exhaust add up to a wonderful rhythm section. The raging bull can accelerate to 60 mph in less than three seconds, thanks to its all-wheel drive system and features Lamborghini’s patented ALA active aerodynamic system.

From the cutting edge of Lamborghini to its humble beginnings, the Flying Marlin Collection is also pleased to offer a Lamborghini 1R tractor from 1966 signed by the only authorized Lamborghini tractor restoration company, Garage 961, and signed on the engine cover by Fabio Lamborghini.
