August 18 @ 8:00 am - August 19 @ 5:00 pm$50
Gooding & Company Auction is set to return to the esteemed Pebble Beach Monterey Car Week, where it will auction off over 170 highly collectible cars. This two-day event is scheduled for August 18th and 19th, 2023, at the Pebble Beach Parc du Concours.
In the previous year, Gooding & Company successfully sold 27 out of the 38 lots offered, setting a new record and amassing a total of $74.2 million in sales. The highest bid was for a 1937 Bugatti Type 57SC Atalante, which fetched $10.3 million. Other significant sales included a 1961 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupé Aerodinamico and a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, which sold for $6 million and $5.7 million respectively. The average price of the cars sold was $2.78 million.
This year, David Gooding, the President and Founder of Gooding & Company, expressed his enthusiasm about the record-breaking selection of vehicles that the company is set to offer at the upcoming Pebble Beach Auctions 2023. He highlighted the inclusion of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, a rare gem that has been preserved in its original, unrestored condition. Gooding noted that vehicles of this caliber are a rarity in the market, and their sale offers collectors a unique opportunity to own a piece of virtually untouched automotive history.
FEATURED VEHICLE I
The star attraction of the auction, the 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, is estimated to fetch between $9,000,000 and $11,000,000. But the auction isn’t just about this singular marvel. Gooding & Company is also set to present an exceedingly rare 2007 Maserati MC12 Versione Corsa, one of only 12 production examples ever built. The auction will also feature a beautifully restored 1953 Ferrari 212 Europa Coupe and a coveted 1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America, complete with a rare optional hardtop.
Adding to the excitement, David Brynan, Senior Specialist at Gooding & Company, highlighted the impressive array of Porsches that will be showcased at the upcoming Pebble Beach and London auctions. The offerings span from exotic 356 Carreras and Spyders to high-performance 911 variants, including the highly sought-after air-cooled models, the 964 Carrera RS 3.8, and the 993 GT2.
The 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, presented in a wonderfully preserved, unrestored condition, is undoubtedly the crown jewel of the Pebble Beach Auctions. However, Gooding & Company has also unveiled a range of additional prized Italian offerings, from 1950s competition cars to 1990s supercars. Interested parties are encouraged to visit the Gooding & Company website to view the entire catalogue online and register to bid for this much-anticipated sale.
FEATURED VEHICLE II
Another standout vehicle to grace the red carpet at Pebble Beach is the 1972 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV. This car, with its coachwork by Bertone, represents the pinnacle of the Miura line, being one of only 150 SVs ever built. This late-production European version comes with a split sump and air-conditioning. This Lamborghini stands out with its vibrant, one-off color scheme that includes “Tahitian Blue” with “Gold” accents and “White upholstery”.
The Lambo boasts an outstanding provenance having been sold in Italy for the first time. The car was only owned by just three private owners since new. During that time, it has undergone concours-quality restoration that was overseen by Italian Lamborghini specialist Cremonini Carrozzeria.
Altogether, Gooding will be featuring about 170 top-notch, highly collectible cars for sale in Pebble Beach. The cars were carefully curated for the Pebble Beach Gooding auction and are some of the highest-quality vehicles Gooding has ever displayed.
