Gooding and Company is claiming it made the biggest sale of the Scottsdale auction week with a 2006 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione that rung the bell at $2,090,000.
The 860hp supercar is one of just 30 built and retailed new for north of $2 million. Its 6.3-liter V-12 is based on the engine used in the Enzo, but is larger, and the car tips the scales at a feathery 2,546 pounds. The car was one of 11 Ferrari supercars and prototypes from the estate of real estate mogul Bemmy Caiola. Caiola’s collection brought a total of $5,225,000.
The number two spot at Gooding went to another stunning Italian, a 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic that sold for $1,705,000. The car was the first of 15 8V Supersonics, with just 17,000 miles on the odometer and one owner for more than 55 years. The Fiat’s pre-auction estimate was $1.1 – $1.4 million, which it easily exceeded.
Gooding’s two-day sale, January 21-22, raked in a total of $34.9 million. There were 129 lots presented, and 121 sold, for a sell-through rate of 94 percent and an average price paid of $289,000. Gooding sold 100 percent of 72 lots auctioned in its Saturday event – a first for the auction house.
According to David Gooding, president and founder, “strong 2011 auction sales will result from an increasing demand for original, preservation-class quality cars. Mint condition models are equally in demand these days as we saw in the strong final sales of the 1937 MG SA Tourer and 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB Alloy Long Nose,” pristine examples that sold for $209,000 and $1,430,000, respectively.
