PEBBLE BEACH, Calif., August 23, 2011

Gooding & Company, the official auction house of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, sold more than $78 million in collector cars at its Pebble Beach Auctions on Saturday and Sunday. A two-day sale of unprecedented results for the leading auction house, Gooding & Company achieved a $13.6 million increase from last year with 19 world records. The king of the Pebble Beach Auction Week was crowned on Saturday night when Gooding & Company sold the iconic 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa Prototype for an extraordinary $16.39 million, commanding the new worldwide record for a car sold at auction. Then on Sunday evening after the Concours d'Elegance when the sensational Whittell Coupe, a bespoke 1931 Duesenberg Model J, sold for $10.34 million, a new world record was established for a Duesenberg as well as an American car sold at auction.

"Overall our Pebble Beach Auctions this year were sensational, but the ultimate moments for me were when we broke through two major world records with the Ferrari Testa Rossa Prototype and the Whittell Coupe," says President and founder David Gooding. "The outstanding $78 million sale proves that the collector car market is alive and well, with considerable strength at the top." Joining Saturday's star Testa Rossa, other auction highlights include the sale of the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider at $3.355 million, the record-breaking $2.585 million sale of the Shelby Cobra 289 Factory Team Car and the sale of Bentley's oldest surviving production car, Chassis 3, the 1921 Bentley 3 Litre that sold for an impressive $962,500.   

Gooding & Company's Sunday auction realized more stellar results with the record-breaking $143,000 sale of Sheryl Crow's 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL benefitting the Joplin Schools Recovery Fund. The crowd attending enjoyed a special appearance by Sheryl Crow, who rode in the car as it was presented on stage, showing her full support by including the last limited-edition Sheryl Crow Signature Artists Gibson guitar, concert tickets and a photo opportunity with the new owner. 

Sunday auction highlights include the exceptional record-breaking 1927 Mercedes-Benz S-Type Sportwagen at $5.04 million, the 1956 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Pinin Farina Series II Coupe at $2.97 million, and an original "barn-find" 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Alloy at $1.54 million.
