The Tony Shooshani Collection of Ferraris will be offered for sale at the 2016 Gooding and Company Scottsdale auction, scheduled for January 29-30 in Scottsdale during Arizona Auction Week. Shooshani entries at Gooding’s annual two-day Scottsdale event range from 250 GTs of the 1960s to the supercars of the 1990s and 2000s.
“We are honored to have a part of one of the most esteemed Ferrari collections in North America from such an astute and refined collector,” stated David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company.“These three supercars within the Shooshani Collection perfectly illustrate the evolution of Ferrari’s engineering and lineage, with all eight Ferraris possessing a noteworthy individual history.”
California Ferrari collector Tony Shooshani has participated in numerous rallies with his favorite Ferrari, his 1985 288 GTO, as well as the Ferrari Corsa Cliente program in his Ferrari 599XX EVO. Shooshani’s relationship with Ferrari has provided him access to original build information on numerous Ferraris he has restored and certified with Ferrari Classique at the Ferrari factory in Maranello.
