Track-Spec C6 Z06

Lot #827 - This modified track-prepared, street-driven, lightweight Z06 Corvette is not for the faint of heart. This Z06 weighs 2,798 pounds with a Katech LS7 7.0-liter power plant that runs on E85 paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. This normally aspirated LS7 produces 622 dyno-proven rear wheel horsepower. It has a complete carbon-fiber body, other than doors and fascia. Extensive lightweight components were used in this no-expense-spared build; the strongest, lightest parts available were sourced. Titanium, aluminum and carbon-fiber components are used in abundance.

1964 Ford GT40 Recreation  

Lot #801 - This CAV GT Ford GT40 re-creation was manufactured by Auto Futura of Cape Town, South Africa, in 2007, before being shipped to the U.S. in 2008. Powered by an aluminum 427ci IR Roush V8 engine mated to a ZF 5-speed manual transaxle with a dog-leg first gear. Equipped with a forged crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, 8-stack fuel-injection system, aluminum cylinder heads, an 8-quart oil pan and "Bundle of Snakes" exhaust headers. Stopping is provided by Wilwood brake calipers with front and rear 300mm rotors. The bodywork of the CAV GT is constructed from a vinyl ester resin-based composite, and this example is finished in silver with white stripes.

Edelbrock Supercharged C6 Z06

Though not as wild as the previous two, this 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is by no means mild. Powered by an Edelbrock Supercharger V8, the LS7 now produces approximately 670 horsepower. For somebody looking for a modified car that’s still civil enough for daily driving, this understated Corvette might be the buy. This 9,935-mile example includes the Z51 Performance Package and a gray and tan interior and has been kept in a climate-controlled garage all its short life.

2004 Factory Five Type 65

Lot #448.1 - This Daytona replica is something any speed freak would love. The one owner/builder is a disabled Vietnam combat veteran in need of the therapeutic value of building his "Dream Car." Complete attention to detail with all new parts and custom designs, with 6,483 actual miles. This is an early generation one Factory Five GT65 coupe that was completed in 2004 (Serial # FFR5002CP). Powered by a professionally built high-performance Ford 347ci V8 DSS Stroker engine with Forged Flathead pistons, set at Zero Deck and backed by a TREMEC T600 5-speed manual transmission. For the best of old and new, this is the one.

1997 Porsche 993 Cabriolet

Lot #543 - This 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is finished in a classic Arctic Silver Metallic exterior with a black soft-top and black premium leather interior. Fully loaded with power windows, door locks and mirrors, air conditioning, premium stereo system, xenon headlights and upgraded 17-inch factory wheels.

To many, it’ll look like a basic 993 Cab, but it is far from factory. Underneath its standard exterior is a supercharged 3.6-liter making a little over 400 horsepower. With a six-speed ‘box and a low curb weight, it’s nearly a sleeper.

2006 Pontiac GTO

Lot #560 - For somebody who wants a meat-and-potatoes dragster with the manners needed to go from shop to shop, this 2006 Pontiac GTO fits the bill. This Goat is powered by a custom-built LSX 7.0-liter V8 engine mated to a T56 6-speed manual transmission and 3.73 posi-traction rear end. This car features a lot of performance upgrades, including forged-crank Eagle connecting rods, Tsunami 235/240 629/615 camshaft, CNC ported cylinder heads, custom exhaust, Nick Williams 102mm throttle body, 1000 lpm injectors, Hooker long-tube headers, 243 CNC heads, Holley Sniper intake, MSD ignition, McLeod twin-disc clutch, Zoom pressure plate, and a NOS kit.

2010 Custom Camaro SS

Lot #690 - Style, substance, and a double-dose of speed. Fitted with a retro-style 1969 front end, this 2010 Camaro SS is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine force-fed by Precision twin turbos. Fully loaded with sunroof, power and heated leather seats, integrated Kenwood navigation with CD and DVD player, Bluetooth, XM radio, and backup camera. Take a gander at this Camaro if you’re after  something that’ll turn heads and churn pavement.

1967 Pro-Touring Ford Mustang

Lot #747 - This 1967 Ford Mustang blends a classic shape with a modern motor that’s already proven itself in tuning circles. The engine is a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine mated to a T56 6-speed manual transmission—more than enough grunt to make a lightweight Mustang go reasonably quick in a straight line.

The other boxes have been ticked. The footwork has been upgraded with Heidts Mustang II front suspension, 4-link rear suspension with coilover shocks, and Wilwood disc brakes at each corner. Inside, all the modern amenities you’d expect from a newer car are there. Vintage Air, front runner power steering setup, Hurricane heat and air conditioning keep you comfy on long hauls. It’s got it all.

 

1998 Porsche RSR Brumos Tribute

Lot #759.1 - This Brumos-liveried 993 RSR Tribute is of the very last air-cooled uncomplicated, maintenance-free Porsche race cars. Commandeered in 2006 on an ultra-light composite body by a well-known Las Vegas PCA member, it became a winning full-fledged PCA race car.

It is powered by a Porsche 993 3.6-liter 3.6-liter engine with racing dry-sump. It features the Porsche G50 transmission with cooling system, ultralight 1998 Porsche 993 RSR composite AMR #6414211, double-winged with fiberglass bumpers and doors, chassis 83 911 SC, AP racing brakes, wheels, independent Bilstein coilovers with smart racing components, full roll cage that is SCCA/FIA-approved, a complete fire suppression system, ATL fuel cell and SCCA/FIA-required exterior engine kill-switch. A Cobra Sebring Pro FIA approved seat and Sparco Evo Plus-2 seat  with Simpson Racing belts are included. A new I/O Port driver's seat back brace secures the seat to the roll cage for ultimate safety.

1965 Shelby Cobra 427

Lot #3002 - Mean, lean, and very clean. The 1965 427 Cobra CSX 6000 series is a continuation of Shelby's history and storied pedigree. This car, CSX 6086, is powered by a Shelby Engine Company 482ci V8 built by Yates and factory-rated at 540 horsepower and 565 ft/lbs of torque. Power is routed through a manual transmission and put to the pavement via a Shelby Salisbury differential with a final drive ratio of 3.54:1. Completed by Speedway Classic Cars in Las Vegas, NV, CSX 6086 features a hand-laid Shelby fiberglass body finished in black with red LeMans stripes mounted atop a 4-inch diameter DOM steel frame.

Handling the power is a rack & pinion steering system as well as 4-wheel independent suspension with coilover shocks and dual A-arms. Braking power is handled by dual-piston Shelby calipers clamping down on 11-inch disc brakes hidden behind a set of original-style 15-inch aluminum wheels with stainless winged knock-offs. This is the show-stealer, folks. Let Christmas come twice this year with this devilishly handsome Cobra.

Book your tickets, pack a few short-sleeved shirts, and make your way to Scottsdale for a week of semi-balmy automotive bliss in the middle of winter. For more information on this event, follow this link and set your GPS to the following address.
