Barrett-Jackson Launches Future Collector Car Show at Scottsdale 2023

Barrett-Jackson has announced that the Future Collector Car Show (FCCS) will be a part of the auction company’s flagship Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale for the first time on January 22, 2023. 

This one-day event, held on the Polo Field at WestWorld, will be a part of all the exciting action that Barrett-Jackson will bring to collector car enthusiasts this January during its entire nine-day event, January 21-29. 

FCCS is a family-friendly, concours-style event featuring vehicles that best represent the future of the collector car hobby, with the goal of celebrating the cars we love today and the future collectibles of tomorrow.

“Barrett-Jackson has long been a pioneer in the industry, championing its growth by creating family-friendly events for multiple generations to come together and enjoy this hobby with one another,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We are excited to bring the Future Collector Car Show to our iconic Scottsdale Auction and continue to engage the next generation of enthusiasts for years to come.”

At FCCS, spectators will enjoy a variety of vehicles ranging from highly modified custom builds to original and perfectly preserved rides, effectively creating an experience where generations of vehicle owners can find common ground in their love of future collectibles.

Continuing the blend of automotive culture and the world of fashion, FCCS at Barrett-Jackson will also feature an immersive and competitive fashion show produced by Luxe & City, awarding the winning stylist a cash prize. FCCS will also include additional elements, such as exhibitor displays and VIP offerings.

Prior to FCCS on January 22, concours-level 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, with exceptions for vehicles that have seen recent increases in collectibility. The FCCS team will be looking for quality vehicles, highly modified enthusiast builds, rare or low-production number cars and unique or uncommon vehicles. Every vehicle entered in the show qualifies for the coveted Best of Show trophy, with other award categories that include a People’s Choice award selected by spectators on-site.

The entire selection of awards include:

  • Best of Show
  • Best Preserved
  • Best Restored
  • Best Period-Correct Modifications
  • Best Purpose-Build Performance
  • Visionary Award
  • Elegance of Heritage
  • Best Electro-Mod
  • Rookie of the Year
  • People’s Choice

Best of Show winners in past years include a 1993 Mazda RX-7, a 2004 modified Subaru WRX STi and a 1998 Toyota Supra.

“At Barrett-Jackson, we continue to elevate the auction experience throughout all of our annual events,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “I’m particularly excited about bringing FCCS on board as part of our Scottsdale Auction because it further exemplifies our commitment and dedication to the collector car hobby, while ensuring its growth and popularity amongst the next generation of automotive enthusiasts.”

Hundreds of future collector cars will be a part of FCCS. Participation to display a vehicle at the event is by application only, and the deadline to apply is December 12, 2022. Admission to FCCS will provide access to the entire Barrett-Jackson event on Sunday, January 22, including access to auction cars on display, the vast Exhibitor Marketplace, sponsor displays, and Hot Laps and Thrill Rides on the Barrett-Jackson Performance Track.
