“Our Northeast Auction docket will feature an incredible selection of exotics that are certain to amp up the excitement on the auction floor,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “From the latest Ferrari off the assembly line to the Lamborghini Countach that hung on every kid’s wall in the ’80s, we’ll have something that everyone can relate to at the auction. These exotics are not only aspirational, but inspirational ‒ and I’m sure they’ll ignite a great deal of excitement during our Northeast Auction.”
Among the exotics at the 2017 Northeast Auction is a 1988 Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole (Lot #688) originally owned by legendary engineering technician and collector Joe Nastasi.
