Sammy Hagar Ferrari and Barret Jacson Auction

At the beginning of 2024, the 1st part of the Barrett-Jackson auction took place. You might wonder, what is a Barrett-Jackson auction? It’s an event that everyone should visit at least once, even if you’re not initially interested in cars. It’s much more than just a display of boring cars; it’s a showcase of the most impressive and stylish vehicles from around the world. One notable highlight from the recent event was the auction of a Ferrari customized for Sammy Hagar. Over the past 50 years Barret Jacson Auction has evolved into world-class automotive lifestyle event where thousands of the world’s most sought-after, unique and valuable vehicles cross the block in front of a global audience – in person and on live national and international broadcasts.
Annually, Barrett-Jackson produces the World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Palm Beach, Florida. In total the auctions host hundreds of thousands of attendees, each of whom has the opportunity to experience auction at its best, capture the car of their dreams, mingle with celebrities, go on adrenaline-pumping thrill rides in the latest vehicles from top automakers and shop in the vast Exhibitor Marketplace. Additionally, millions of fans watch the action live, via Barrett-Jackson’s “All the Cars, All the Time” livestream.

More about Lot #5150

One-of-one custom 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari is hidden behind LOT #5150. The car was exclusively designed and built for Rock & Roll Hall of Sammy Hagar.

In those years, the customers of the Ferrari cars had huge freedom of choice in terms of the fabrics, leathers, woods, colors and finishes of their cars, resulting in genuinely one-off creations tailored minutely to their individual desires and tastes.

LaFerrari is finished in cream over a cream interior with carbon-fiber and black accents throughout. This combination achieves a cool and modern yet classic look, providing an elegant nuance that is sure to impress.

For those more familiar with the technical nuances of luxury cars, the following specifications might capture your interest. Sammy’s Ferrari is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine with an electric motor for a combined 949hp and 664 ft/lbs of torque. The rear-wheel-drive vehicle is capable of reaching 60 mph in under 3 seconds and reaches a top speed of over 217 mph. The LaFerrari is equipped with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) that was developed through Ferrari’s Formula 1 cars and provides bursts of extra power at the driver’s discretion. Other highlights include magnetorheological dampers and carbon-ceramic disc brakes.

Included with the sale of the LaFerrari is a special replica model of the vehicle Hagar received as a gift from Ferrari, in addition to a book of the build process and a display plaque signed by Hagar from when the vehicle was displayed at the Quail.

In short, it should be the ideal choice for those who purchase it. The car was priced at approximately $1.5 million, available only to the lucky 499 individuals selected to receive an allocation for this limited edition model. However, Hagar hopes his LaFerrari could fetch possibly triple that amount—or even more; the final sum remains to be seen.

XOUNTS: Ferrari in the World of Sound Systems

One more thing to be mentioned is that the interior of the car also boasts a Harman Kardon audio system with four speakers. Imagine cruising on a highway, for example from LA to Las Vegas, while enjoying this exceptional audio clarity.

Speaking of exceptional audio clarity, XOUNTS had the opportunity to be featured in the first part of the Barrett-Jackson auction by supporting the main Sammy Hagar Lot. Three of the XOUNTS Style Covers were specially developed for the auction, perfectly matching the colors of both the interior and exterior of a Ferrari. XOUNTS obelisk-shaped Sound Systems drew the attention of all attendees, standing out like a Ferrari in the world of sound systems. With its 360° Stereo Sound, unlimited connectivity, exchangeable Style Covers, and an integrated LED Light Show, XOUNTS made a significant impression.

In the middle of the auction, Sammy Hagar took the stage alongside Michael Anthony and electrified the audience further.

The Barrett-Jackson auction was the place that united fine cars, top-notch music, and, of course, the best sound technology—XOUNTS! It was the best of all worlds!
