Gooding Scottsdale 2015 – Auction Results

The Gooding and Company Scottsdale 2015 Auction was held January 16-17 nearby the Scottsdale Fashion Square in Scottsdale, Arizona, resulting in more than $51,516,600 in total sales and a 90 percent sell-through rate. A total of eleven cars sold above $1,000,000 at Gooding’s 8th annual Arizona Auction Week sale and 25 set new auction records.

David Gooding, President and Founder of Gooding and Company, said, “With nearly a quarter of our lots setting new world auction records and 11 cars selling over $1 million this year’s Scottsdale Auctions proved to be a very strong sale all around. We are proud of the 90% sales rate achieved as it exemplifies our company’s ability to meet the market’s ever-shifting demands and trends while also maintaining our mission to present the highest quality examples to buyers around the world.”

The top result at the Gooding Scottsdale 2015 Auction went to the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, the 14th California Spider sold at a Gooding & Company Auction. Offered from the Jack Castor estate for public sale for the first time, this California Spider sold for $7,700,000.

Additional high points included a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso that sold for $1,925,000, a 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupe Aerodinamico that made $4,070,000, a 1966 Porsche 906 Carrera 6 that brought $1,980,000 and an original, low-mileage 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra for $1,155,000.

A highlight of Gooding’s 2015 Scottsdale auction was a charity lot presentation from car collector and comedian Jay Leno, USO President J.D. Crouch II, and 36th Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army General George Casey. Leno’s personal 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 generated $565,625 in contributions to the USO. The auctioneer dropped the hammer at $360,000 for the winning bidder, and that contribution was supported by over $200,000 in additional donations from other bidders and auction attendees.
