Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Auctions His 1200 HP Hennessey Venom Spyder for Janie’s Fund

Scottsdale, ARIZ. (January 20, 2017) – In the past, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler used to sing “Janie’s got a gun,” but today he’s singing a different line, “Janie’s got a fund.”  Tyler’s Janie’s Fund “is dedicated to providing resources to help put the pieces back together again for abused girls.” Their goals are to bring awareness to the abuse and neglect of children and generate financial support to help the victims overcome the trauma and pain of the abuse they have suffered.

Steven Tyler’s 2012 Hennessee Venom GT Spyder

When Steven Tyler wants turn one of his rides into cash for Janie’s Fund, where does he bring it?  He brings it to Barrett-Jackson‘s 2017 Scottsdale collector car auction.

Tyler brought his 2012 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder to Barrett-Jackson for 2017’s auction week.  Drawing hundreds of fans on stage, the Venom GT Spyder rolled across the block on Friday night.  The 1,244 horsepower, 270 mph convertible sits so low, it could not be seen among the sea of fans on the block.

Craig Jackson drove the Hennessee Venom GT Spyder onto the auction block himself with Tyler riding shotgun.  The room erupted in cheer as Tyler got out to greet the crowd.

The bidding started and then stalled until Tyler sweetened the pot by throwing in a weeks stay at his house in Maui.  Towards the end of the bidding, Craig Jackson announced that the sale would also come with a guitar signed by all of the Aerosmith band members.  The Venom GT Spyder bid to $800,000 before the hammer dropped.  An anonymous buyer dropped another $50,000 onto the sales price.

100 percent of the profits of the sale will go directly to Janie’s Fund.
