DeTomaso Pantera Sale Will Support Neurological Foundation

By Staff Writer January 06, 2022


Barrett-Jackson announced that a 1973 DeTomaso Pantera will cross the auction block during their 2022 Scottsdale Auction to benefit Barrow Neurological Foundation and its upcoming Neuro Night fundraising event. Accompanying the mid-engine Italian sports car on Jan. 28, will be singer-songwriter and philanthropist Bret Michaels, who is partnering with Barrett-Jackson to help promote the work being done at Barrow Neurological Foundation. Emmy Award-winning actress Sharon Stone is also participating in the promotion of the charity vehicle’s sale as the Neuro Night Honoree and a member of the Board of Trustees of Barrow Neurological Foundation. 

“Helping raise funds and awareness for deserving charities has been a foundation of Barrett-Jackson dating back to the first-ever event held in 1967 that benefited the local Scottsdale library and community arts center,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Additionally, Sharon and Bret are longtime members of the Barrett-Jackson family and having them both help promote the sale of this Pantera will surely make this charity auction one to remember as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary at the Scottsdale Auction.”

This black 1973 DeTomaso Pantera (Lot #3004) was donated by Bill Pope and Bob Lavinia, co-owners of the vehicle, who were thrilled to be able to support Barrow Neurological Foundation through this charity auction at Barrett-Jackson. It is powered by a 351 Windsor V8 engine topped with a pair of ported and polished Yates aluminum cylinder heads and produces an estimated 665 horsepower. The Italian sports car also has a 2.5-inch dropped floor pan and a pair of custom seats riding on a set of one-off custom wheels.

“Every day, the innovative clinicians and scientists at Barrow Neurological Institute challenge accepted norms and constantly strive to find cures that will save lives,” said Katie Cobb, president of Barrow Neurological Foundation. “The generosity of our donors is the fuel for this success, and the donation of this spectacular sports car is just one example of their unprecedented commitment to raising funds to advance research and care for those suffering from the most challenging and debilitating neurological diseases.”
