Gooding & Co offers a flock of Ferraris at its next Pebble Beach Auction
This 1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe will be among the unmissable autos for sale
Gooding & Company, the official auctioneer of the world-renowned Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is selling five award-winning, coachbuilt Ferraris at its esteemed Pebble Beach Auctions on August 20 & 21.
Spanning the first 15 years of Ferrari's production history, each of these examples premiered as show models at Europe's leading motor shows: a 1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe by Pinin Farina, a 1953 Ferrari 375 America by Vignale and a 1950 Ferrari 195 Inter by Touring.
A 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Coupe Aerodinamica by Pininfarina and a 1955 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta will also appear.
Gooding & Co expects that the sales will continue its track record of setting a number of Ferrari world-auction records and achieving top sales.
Recent noteworthy Ferrari sales include a 1951 Ferrari 212 Export Cabriolet that sold earlier this year for $1.87 million at the 2011 Amelia Island Auction, and a 2006 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione that sold for $2.09 million at the firm's 2011 Scottsdale Auctions.
"We are delighted to present more than 15 collector-quality Ferraris at our Pebble Beach Auctions this year," said 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."
1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe, Chassis No. 0715 SA
The short wheelbase 410 SA, Ferrari's last Lampredi-engined car, was one of the only cars in the 1950s capable of reaching speeds well in excess of 150 mph.
One of only eight Series II 410 Superamericas built, this 410 SA was first introduced at the 1957 Paris Auto Show, handsomely finished in black with natural leather interior. It was sold new to an American buyer and later acquired by the famous oil magnate H.L. Hunt.
It has been enjoyed by the same family since 1969 and will be presented at auction for the first time ever.
With original paint and less than 19,000 miles, 0715 SA is one of the finest surviving coachbuilt Ferraris in existence and has earned prestigious Preservation Class honours at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Ferrari Nationals and Concorso Italiano.
Interested buyers can request the car's estimate. Watch this space for more news on Gooding & Co's upcoming sale.
