One more highlight from Pebble Beach which I must mention, was the auction put on by Gooding & Company. To be expected, the lot of cars was nothing short of spectacular and at the end of the day some very high numbers were met. In total 169 cars were sold at the auction, bringing in a total of $50,759,350. That comes out to an average of over $300,000 per car…..not too shabby. The cars that helped pad these numbers included 9 cars that brought in over $1 million each. Following are the top 10 highest sales:

  • 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider at $5,115,000 (Sunday Lot 135)
  • 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Drop Head Coupe at $4,180,000 (Sunday Lot 139)
  • 1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Roadster at $3,300,000 (Sunday Lot 130)
  • 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider at $2,750,000 (Saturday Lot 37)
  • 1953 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Drop Head Coupe at $1,650,000 (Saturday Lot 62)
  • 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial Series I at $1,540,000 (Sunday Lot 117)
