Lot 56 - 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB s_n 08921 Est. $2,750,000 - $3,250,000 - Sold $3,080,000

 

Santa Monica, 11th August, 2020 

Gooding & Company, the auction house revered for selling the world’s most desirable and prized collector cars, garnered $14,497,443 at its inaugural Geared Online auction on August 7th. The auction house achieved a 71% sales rate from 55 of 77 lots sold, with five vehicles selling over $1 million.

Gooding & Company delivered a diverse lineup of collector cars, from prewar masterpieces to modern supercars, as well as a carefully curated selection of automobilia for the five-day online-only sale. Ferraris stole the show, taking home the top five sales of the Geared Online auction. Easily the most exciting car of the sale, the 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose, saw bidding placed up until the very last minute, before ultimately selling for $3,080,000, a new record for the most valuable car sold online. A timeless American classic, the 1934 Duesenberg Model J Town Car, made a splash on the final day of bidding when it reached a final sale price of $1,012,000. A trio of Ferrari supercars from a private collection each performed exceptionally well, with all three rounding out the top five highest sales. The impeccable 2003 Ferrari Enzo sold for $2,354,000, the 1995 Ferrari F50 achieved $2,134,000, and a striking 1992 Ferrari F40 realized $1,628,000.

The company’s offering of automobilia did not disappoint, with several lots smashing their pre-auction estimate. Luigi Chinetti’s North American Racing Team sign sold for $51,250, surely completing its new owner’s garage or workshop. Additionally, a rare 1950s Ferrari factory perpetual calendar found its new home after reaching a final sale price of $17,500.

“Our first ever online only sale was a great success for both our clients and the company. Additionally, the introduction of automobilia into our lineup proved to be incredibly successful,” states David Gooding, President and Founder of Gooding & Company. “The demand of quality cars has not faded during such uncertain times, and we are thrilled to provide Geared Online to the world. As we look ahead to our next online only sale in October, we invite collectors and enthusiasts to contact us today to find out how they can be a part of future Geared Online auctions.”
