Celebrity appearances at Barrett-Jackson 2022

It's not just famous collector cars that will make special appearances at Barrett-Jackson this year. Pitbull and Bret Michaels will be involved with the 2022 auction.

Michaels, front man of the band Poison, will sell his 2007 Bentley Continental GT (Lot #3003.1) on Friday, Jan. 28, and a portion of the proceeds will go to his nonprofit, the Life Rocks Foundation.

"This Bentley has been one of my favorite vehicles and I look forward to seeing it cross the auction block for a great cause," Michaels said in a statement.

He will also be on hand for the auction of a 1973 De Tomaso Pantera (Lot #3004) on Friday, which will benefit the Barrow Neurological Foundation.

According to Barrett-Jackson's website, "Once Pitbull puts his personal touches on the vehicle, it will surely be one of the most customized and unique vehicles Karma has ever built."
