Gooding Pebble Beach Auction 2011 – Ferrari Consignments

Gooding & Company will feature five coachbuilt Ferraris at its 2011 Pebble Beach Auctions, scheduled for August 20-21 in Pebble Beach, California.

The bespoke Ferraris span the first 15 years of Ferrari’s production history, with each premiering as show models at Europe’s leading motor shows: 1950 Ferrari 195 Inter by Touring, 1953 Ferrari 375 America by Vignale, 1955 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta by Pinin Farina, 1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe by Pinin Farina and a 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Coupe Aerodinamica by Pininfarina.

“We are delighted to present more than 15 collector-quality Ferraris at our Pebble Beach Auctions this year,” says President and founder David Gooding. “These ultra-rare, low-production Ferraris, such as the ‘50s- and ‘60s-era show cars we’re offering, will continue to hold their value and reward those with a passion for the best.”

The headliine Ferraris join Gooding & Company’s previously announced Pebble Beach Auction highlights, including the Whittell Coupe, a 1931 Duesenberg Model J; Bentley’s Chassis 3, a 1921 Bentley 3 Litre; and a 1931 Brough Superior SS80, formerly owned by Steve McQueen and Von Dutch.
