This year Gooding & Company upped the blue chip market by setting 16 world records at their Pebble Beach Auctions and achieving $106 million in total sales which includes their 10% buyer’s premium.
At $15,180,000 for the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider, Gooding set a new benchmark price. In earlier years BBC presenter Chris Evans was high criticized for buying a similar car in 2008 for €7,040,000, but now he looks all the wiser.
Gooding also sold one of the world’s best Countach LP400s for $1,870,000. That’s about a million more than any previous Countach.
The Ferrari 250GT in all varieties benefited at Gooding. Two Lussos sold for over 2-million each which is double the prices from last year. The 275 GTB is also nearly a 4 million dollar car in today’s market.
The title 1966 Ferrari 365 P Berlinetta Speciale, a fabled race car turned into a 3-seat road car, failed to meet it’s 25 million dollar reserve and when back home to the Chinetti family who have owned it almost continually since new.
