TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., July 15, 2022 – Motorlux, the reimagined McCall’s Motorworks, includes exclusive access to the first-ever Broad Arrow Group Monterey Jet Center Auction. All Motorlux ticket holders can preview the auction vehicles during the event on Wednesday, August 17. Lux Premium tickets also include admission to the auction (a $200 value) held on Thursday, August 18, providing access that is normally reserved for consigners, registered bidders and their guests.
“The Broad Arrow Group is thrilled to bring auction action to the Monterey Jet Center the day following – and in partnership with – this year’s Motorlux event,” said Kenneth Ahn, President, Hagerty Marketplace and CEO, Broad Arrow Group. “It is the perfect combination of people, place and passion – our clients and friends from around the world, an inspiring setting and an incredible offering of cars.”
Highlights from more than 90 auction vehicles include the personal Aston Martin DB5 of legendary actor and icon, Sir Sean Connery. The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 will be offered directly from the Connery family, who have committed to donating a significant portion of the sale proceeds to benefit the Sean Connery Philanthropy Fund.
Pre-war automobile enthusiasts will appreciate the unique and outstanding 1939 Mercedes-Benz 540K Spezial Roadster. As one of the true crown jewels of the Classic Era of motor cars, arguably no automobile symbolizes the pinnacle of design, engineering and construction among the Classic Era cars better than the supercharged Mercedes-Benz 540K Spezial Roadster. Incredibly rare, stunningly beautiful, a cherished centerpiece for collectors worldwide – chassis 408383 is the perfect representation of those enviable qualities.
Additional highlights include a 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring, one of 50 produced. The single-owner LFA is finished in orange and has only covered about 1,200 miles since delivery. Porsche fans will enjoy viewing the 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort and BMW aficionados will appreciate the 1981 BMW M1. Both rare and highly collectible German supercars represent the pinnacle of 1980s automotive engineering.
