BARRETT-JACKSON LIVE will feature several outstanding supercars from the Palm Beach auction block, including NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick's gorgeous 2012 Ferrari 458 Spider. Powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine, this incredible car produces an astounding 562hp. The interior is well-appointed with navigation, automatic climate control and power-heated seats. As expected from a car of this caliber, nearly all interior surfaces are covered in leather and suede with red stitching to accent. With only 1,000 miles on the odometer, this Italian supercar is like new and looks magnificent. As with all of Hendrick's personal cars, no detail is overlooked when it comes to maintenance or upkeep.

Incredible one-of-a-kind custom cars will also be auctioned at No Reserve at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach. Headlining the custom cars docket is a breathtaking black 1967 Ford Mustang Custom Fastback. With a brand-new build, this beautiful Mustang has collected only a few hundred miles from break-in and fine-tuning. Featuring a Shelby 427 aluminum, big block V8, the engine was bored and stroked to 750hp. Other elements include 3×2 500cfm carburetors, aluminum air cleaner and an aluminum tri-power intake manifold.

Also highlighted in the Palm Beach custom docket is a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop. The Bel Air features a dual coilover suspension, complete with a 2013 LS3 engine with 480hp. Palm Beach will also be the next stop for a 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Custom. This special muscle car features an LS7 606hp engine and sports Daytona Blue with Speed Silver GT stripes livery. In addition, a 1948 Packard Super 8 Custom Convertible adds to the list of notable consignments to the 13th Annual Palm Beach Auction. The Packard is powered by a 454ci/450hp big block Chevy and a 700 R4 overdrive transmission. This classic custom features a Jaguar independent rear end with inboard disc brakes, Boyd wheels and Goodyear low-profile tires.
