I was really excited to see what this Ferrari F40 built buy Gas Monkey Garage on the hit show Fast N Loud would go far and surprisingly, it went for a figure that I feel was accurate. I wouldn’t have been shocked if it went for crazy money since it is Barrett-Jackson but in my mind I didn’t think the car was really worth more than $650K.
More photos after the jump!

“570 horse power of brilliant Italian engineering + 260lbs of Samoan Black Silverback = another fine ride I don’t fit in. #Ferrari458 Why I’m a pick up truck man”

Barrett-Jackson will be kicking off it’s 2014 event starting today in Scottsdale Arizona. While we can expect the normal line-up of original high-dollar Mopars and muscle cars, Craig Jackson and the team at Barrett-Jackson have lined up quite the celebrity set of vehicles.
Lets start with Simon Cowell’s Bugatti Veyron. We’ve seen him a number of times in this vehicle and frankly speaking, I think he should be keeping this one. Unless he has a special variation Veyron on the way, I would hold on to this one. Perhaps we’ll see him bidding on his own car.
In keeping up with the all black motif, I’m very excited to see the Gas Monkey Ferrari F40 go across the block. Dennis Collins is no stranger to putting cars up for auction but based on the TV publicity from the TV show Fast N Loud, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see this thing take off!
Stay tuned for more celebrity car news from Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale!
