Celebrity Cars Go For Record Amounts At Pebble Beach

When you think of a Fiat 500 the last thing that comes to mind is six figures but when you’re auctioning Jay Leno’s Fiat at Pebble Beach anything can happen — and that’s exactly how it went. Jay Leno’s Fiat 500 Prima Edizione went for a record-breaking $385,000 — ten times it’s expected value.

Other celebrity cars at Pebble Beach included Steve McQueen’s 1968 Ford GT40 Gulf/Mirage Coupe that sold for $11,000,000, Andy Warhol’s 1955 Ferrari 857 Sport, George Clooney’s first-edition black Tesla Roadster, and the top-seller of the year, the legendary Baroness Von Krieger’s 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster that went for a whopping $11,770,000!

The First Celebrity Car Built by Hennessey Performance

John Hennessey was recently on The Smoking Tire podcast so I thought I would call in and ask who the first celebrity was that Hennessey built a car for. (Click here to listen to the full podcast)   Turns out it was none other than Jay Leno who had a Viper. I’m not sure exactly which Viper it was that Jay sent to Hennessey but I’m guessing it might have been this 1996 Viper GTS.

Also there is a great video after the jump of Leno Touring the Viper build factory while his car was being built and aside from a little less grey hair he looks about the same, t-shirt and all!
