Santa Monica, Calif. (November 6, 2019) – Gooding & Company, the auction house acclaimed for selling some of the world’s most significant and valuable collector cars, is proud to reveal a striking roster of desirable and highly original Italian-designed automobiles ready to meet their new owners at Gooding & Company’s 2020 auctions in Arizona.
“The 60s and 70s were unmistakably Ferrari’s golden years in producing racing championships as well as favorably drivable road cars,” notes David Brynan, Senior Specialist at Gooding & Company. “Each of these examples is a fantastic representation of the era’s GT style that Ferrari enthusiasts are always on the hunt for to add to their collection.”
1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast (Estimate: $2,500,000 – $3,000,000) At the Geneva Motor Show in 1964, Ferrari debuted the all-new 500 Superfast – the successor to the 400 Superamerica aimed at the company’s most elite clientele. Powered by a massive five-liter V-12, the Superfast lived up to its name, with a top speed approaching 170 mph. The car’s elegant Pininfarina coachwork features a large glass greenhouse, refined lines, and a Kamm tail to complement its racing bloodline. The interior contains spacious and adjustable seats, an expansive luggage platform, and a beautiful wood-grain dashboard with myriad instruments. This car, chassis 6305 SF, is the only one of the 36 500 Superfasts delivered in black. It was sold new in Italy and belonged to several notable collectors throughout the years. The vehicle settled in America where it underwent a complete engine rebuild by award-winning vintage Ferrari restorer Motion Products Inc. This matching-numbers 500 Superfast is one of the most desired coachbuilt models and comes with Ferrari Classiche Red Book certification. Considered to be the embodiment of a mid-century Italian gran turismo, 6305 is a fantastic example worthy of any Ferrari collector’s consideration.
1967 Ferrari 330 GTS (Estimate: $2,200,000 – $2,500,000) The Ferrari 330 GTS is certainly defined by its rarity, with only 99 examples built between 1966 and 1968. The 330 GTS was equipped with a powerful, four-liter V-12, five-speed transaxle, four-wheel disc brakes, and its bodywork was reminiscent of the exclusive 500 Superfast. This Pininfarina-bodied Spider, chassis 10111, recently underwent a multiyear restoration and is presented in striking Giallo Fly with black leather interior. This Platinum Award-winning 330 GTS is among the finest restored examples of this revered model and offers an extraordinary combination of beauty and performance.
1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS (Estimate: $325,000 – $400,000) The Ferrari Dino, regarded by many as one of the most striking and appealing automobiles ever imagined by Ferrari, was a car designed for the road with the DNA of a racecar. With less than 1,300 built between 1972 and 1974, the 246 GTS introduced a lift-off roof, power windows, and air conditioning, making it more desirable than its 246 GT precursors. Offered in the attractive color combination of Bianco Polo Park over black leather and showing just under 21,000 miles from new, chassis 05534 is an exceptional example.
