The Auction

Gooding & Company is delighted to officially announce that the highly anticipated “Passion of a Lifetime” auction has been rescheduled for 5 September 2020. The company's first-ever sale outside of the US will take place during the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court Palace. This historic venue, once home to Henry VIII and the Tudor dynasty, will serve as an awe-inspiring setting to a landmark sale. The once-in-a-lifetime auction event will be staged in the palace’s elegant formal gardens, providing both telephone and absentee bids and foregoing the traditional live audience. Celebrated auctioneer Charlie Ross, who brings his charismatic British charm to every Gooding & Company live auction event, will be commanding the auction stage. These 15 extraordinary cars hail from one of the world's most revered private collections and represent the culmination of decades of research and dedication. The collector's meticulous passion for the very finest brings together the most coveted and valuable examples of European sports and racing automobiles of the 20th century.
