LOT #758.1 – GABRIEL “FLUFFY” IGLESIAS’ 2015 CHEVROLET CAMARO TRANS AM BANDIT EDITION – NO RESERVE

LOT #758 – GABRIEL “FLUFFY” IGLESIAS’ 2018 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT DEMON – NO RESERVE

Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias is an American stand-up comedian and actor. Iglesias developed a strong sense of humor to deal with the obstacles he faced growing up as the youngest of six children, raised by a single mother in Long Beach, California.

Iglesias’s stand-up comedy is a mixture of sound effects and storytelling with parodies and characters that bring his experiences to life and paint vivid scenes for the audience. His animated comedy style has made him popular among fans of all ages around the world. Iglesias is one of the most watched comedians on YouTube with almost a billion views.

The comedian is one of the few to headline and sell-out Madison Square Garden in New York, Staples Center in Los Angeles, and Sydney Opera House in Australia. Iglesias also frequently performs in Las Vegas.

In addition to his jokes, Iglesias is known for his enormous Volkswagen Bus collection housed in Long Beach, within “The Fluffy Museum.” The museum was built to resemble the famous Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany.

While his collection is primarily composed of Volkswagens, the comedian also enjoys muscle cars, two of which will be offered with No Reserve at the 2022 Las Vegas Auction, June 30 – July 2 at the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The first muscle car on offer is a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, one of just 3,300 Demons produced worldwide.

With the Demon, Dodge wanted to create a 9-second quarter-mile car. Under normal circumstances, any other car capable of crossing 1320 feet in under ten seconds has traditionally either been a purpose-built drag machine or an exotic supercar. But the Demon is different.

The Demon is fully equipped with power steering and everyday comforts including air conditioning. What Dodge has done is nothing short of amazing. And naturally once the word was out, virtually each Demon found a buyer.

The car offered by Iglesias has a serialized dash plaque that indicates this is the sixth vehicle produced. Power comes from a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI SRT V8 engine, backed by an 8-speed automatic transmission. Demon branded Nitto tires keep it glued to the road and a Demon car cover offers protection when it is not flying down the freeway.

Additionally offered is a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Trans Am Bandit Edition. Introduced in 2015, the Trans Am Bandit Edition is a special build by Trans Am Depot to serve as a modern iteration of the famous Smokey and the Bandit 1977 Trans Am.

The exterior features the classic Black and Gold paint scheme with the famous screaming bird. Under the hood is a 6.2-liter V8 engine hooked to a 6-speed manual transmission. Unique features include sway bars for a steady ride and removable T-tops for that wind-in-your hair experience.

Katzkin seats in two-tone leather with Bandit logos on the headrests, gauge faces, center console, and matching floor mats can be found inside the car. Other interior highlights include a Hurst shifter and Kenwood head unit with navigation.

Production was limited to 77 vehicles, and each one features Burt Reynolds signature prominently across the dash. The car is #20 of 77 and includes the exclusive Bandit hat with case and gloves along with certification paperwork.

Both of these vehicles from Iglesias’ private collection have star power to spare. Catch them on the auction block in Las Vegas this summer.
