The #V06, powered by Pennzoil Synthetics, packs a 600 horsepower punch from a Lingenfelter Performance Built LS7.
The Volvo will cross the auction block during Scottsdale Auction Week at Barrett-Jackson, the world’s greatest collector car auction on Friday, Jan. 17 at Charity Lot Number #3005 at approximately 7:30 p.m. All of the proceeds will benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund which offers financial assistance to students pursuing an automotive career.
The team has shown that #TheProofIsInThePennzoil by campaigning the #V06 in a variety of events before it crosses the Barrett-Jackson auction block this month. The awards started with the Golden Ticket to the Ultimate Street Car Invitational at the SEMA Show where it hit the track in an Autocross, Hot Lap Challenge and Speed Stop. Afterwards, the #V06 tackled the Las Vegas streets in a Road Rally to winning the Show-N-Shine Award for Best Non-Domestic at LSFest West where the Volvo Drag Raced, maneuvered a Road Course, Autocrossed and completed the infamous 3S Challenge. The Volvo was also featured in the blockbuster franchise “Fast & Furious” in the recent “Hobbs and Shaw” movie.

“Shell and Pennzoil are proud to be a part of such an inspiring build with Jeff Allen and the Flat 12 crew,” said Patty Lanning, Vice President, North America Marketing, Shell Lubricants. “It’s been an incredible journey for the V06, from its debut at the Shell ‘Pioneering Performance’ experience at the 2018 SEMA Show, to stops at automotive events across the country and finally rolling across the block this evening.
