Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas

On Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017, Barrett-Jackson will be auctioning off a rare 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake. All proceeds from the sale to go to a special fund that supports Las Vegas first responders and others affected by the recent tragedy. The car is set to be auctioned off during the 10th Annual Las Vegas Auction at the Mandalay Bay Resort at 1:30 PM PT.

The Super Snake, donated by Barrett-Jackson president Steve Davis from his personal collection, is a 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake 40th Anniversary Edition. It will be auctioned off during the Barrett-Jackson LIVE broadcast on Discovery Channel.

The car was originally owned by former Ford Motor Company CEO Mark Fields and was documented to be the seventh built that year. Not only was it one of the first Shelby GT500s to be built since the 1970 model year, it was transformed by Shelby Automobiles (now Shelby American) in Las Vegas into a Super Snake edition car under the watchful eye of Carroll Shelby himself, who signed a special book documenting the car.

The over-600-horsepower muscle car was recorded as the 11th Super Snake manufactured that year. The Shelby also received the coveted 40th anniversary option, with commemorative badges, upgraded brakes, new suspension and many other enhancements.

“All of us at Barrett-Jackson are overwhelmed with grief and sorrow for the victims and their families,” said Davis. “As stories continue to unfold, we’re in awe of the first responders and the miraculous effort they put forth to illustrate once again what makes our country and our people special. We truly feel that we’re part of the Las Vegas community, and I couldn’t think of a better way to show support than giving something from my personal collection, which is also so close to my heart. This is really an incredible car with a great story behind it, and I’m honored to sell it at Barrett-Jackson to help the great men and women who risked their lives to help save others.”
