Barrett-Jackson to stage Future Collector Car Show Oct. 13

Renault R5 Turbo II

(June 19, 2024) SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. —  Barrett-Jackson will rev up the excitement of this year’s Scottsdale Fall Auction with the Future Collector Car Show (FCCS), a family friendly show dedicated to celebrating the passion and honoring the craftsmanship of the next generation of collector car enthusiasts. To be held Sunday, Oct. 13 at WestWorld of Scottsdale, this year’s Fall FCCS will feature over 200 collectible vehicles representing the future of the collector car hobby.

“The Future Collector Car Show was started in 2015 to honor and recognize the passion and vision of the next generation of car enthusiasts,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The 1985 Renault R5 Turbo II that took home the FCCS ‘Best of Show’ title during our January Scottsdale Auction, is just one example of the rare gems you’ll discover at the event. It’s truly a melting pot of multiple generations of enthusiasts who not only love their vehicles but want to share their passion with the rest of the community.”

The Renault R5 Turbo II, winner of the January 2024 “Best of Show” title, was one of only 200 special homologation models built in 1985. A unique find from the 1980s automotive scene, only 3,000 R5 Turbo IIs were built between 1983 and 1986, none of which were ever officially sold in the U.S.

Vehicles on display during this year’s FCCS will be from a wide range of makes and models, including original, restored and custom builds that all reflect Barrett-Jackson’s commitment to preserving the future of the hobby. It is an experience where guests from every generation find common ground in their love of future collectibles.

Prior to FCCS on Oct. 13, judges will hand-pick the top cars for each category from the applications submitted. The target year range for featured vehicles is 1980 to present day. The FCCS team will be looking for quality vehicles, highly modified enthusiast builds, rare or low-production number cars and unique or uncommon vehicles for the show.

Every vehicle entered qualifies for the coveted Best of Show trophy, as well as other categories that include a People’s Choice award selected by spectators on-site.
