These are going to heat things up in Arizona next month ...
Collectors have a fairly large but very impressive collection of cars in their sights, the Steve Todhunter Collection, which is up for auction at Mecum in Glendale, Arizona in March. It's always interesting to see what a car collector has accumulated that has accumulated further down the path. Sometimes we get a glimpse of these collections when they go up for auction. One thing we learn right away is that the man loves red cars. He also appreciates American muscles and European exotics, a mix that we find very good. But wait, there is so much more.

Of the many notable cars, there is a 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra FAM that was previously owned by none other than Paul Walker, a car we've covered before. Commissioned by Carroll Shelby in the late 1990s, it is a CSX1000 series car with a hand-rolled aluminum body made by AC Cars. There are only 14 of these things, so this isn't just your ordinary sequel model and the crown jewel in many collections.

Several other rare, valuable classic American muscle cars are in the collection, such as a 1969 Dodge Daytona with its distinctive nose cone and massive rear wing. Like the cobra, it is red with a white bumblebee stripe. While every Daytona is rare, this is said to be one of 92 4-speed cars on the Chrysler register and the only one with an option as it is. A pair of 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastbacks are also in the collection, enough to make Blue Oval fans salivate quickly.
Speaking of Ford, two modern Mustangs made the cut. One is a 2011 Shelby GT350, one of only 159 manufactured that year. It comes with the factory supercharger, a 6-speed manual gearbox, an A-pillar gauge package and a range of Shelby / Ford Racing parts like suspension, exhaust and 6-piston brakes. The other modern Ford is a 2009 Shelby GT500 Super Snake.
There's a modern day Mopar, a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon with only 793 miles on the clock and the yellow Splitter Guard still attached if you wonder.

When it comes to exotic Italians, Todhunter seems to have strongly favored Ferrari. Six of the lots are Ferraris, the model year of which extends from 1992 to 2018. Perhaps the rarest model is a 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta Pininfarina numbered 004 out of 448. With just 1,497 miles on the odometer, it looks essentially new. The Rosso Corsa over Beige scheme is absolutely classic. This car also has a gearshift lever, a Fiorano handling package, the original window sticker and a cover.

Not all exotic species are Italians in this collection. An exception is the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, which is of course in Fire Opel Red over black. The car is even rarer as it is 1 in 132 in the world and 1 in 5 with that specific shade. A 2006 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is an exotic American supercar that many appreciate but few have. At 1 in 14, it is even rarer than the SLS.
Apparently, before you think these are all of the cars Todhunter has amassed, this is just a selection from his larger collection. If these are the rides he can part with, we wonder what kinds of amazing rides are still in his garage.
If you're interested in the Steve Todhunter Collection, or just this year's Mecum's Glendale, Arizona auction, it's March 18-20, when the desert is still pretty pleasant.
