Classic Car Auctions In Arizona – Part 2

by Mike -

Here are my favorite cars at the Gooding auction in Arizona on January 20 & 21, 2012.

1971 Maserati Ghibli 4.9 SS Spyder

Estimate is $700,000 – $900,000

This is a very hefty estimate and certainly would be a world record. There is another Ghibli Spyder at RM for a much lower estimate.

Gooding says:

“*Likely the Finest Ghibli in Existence
*Exceedingly Rare as One of Just 11 European SS Versions
*Ordered New in Striking Colors with “All the Extras”
*Offered with Factory Hardtop and Fitted Luggage
*Well-Documented Example
*Exceptional Restoration to Factory Specifications
*An Important Maserati”

For this price a few tons of gold should be included.

1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso

Estimate is $750,000 – $900,000

This seems like a high estimate as well. I can remember these cars going for $500 to $600K not long ago – this one seems to be an exceptional example, however.

“*Certified by Ferrari Classiche
*Matching-Numbers Engine
*Exquisite Restoration by F40 Motorsports and Greg Jones
*Stunning Period Color Combination
*The Ultimate Evolution of the 250 GT with Timeless Pininfarina Design
*Documented by Ferrari Historian Marcel Massini”

Maybe the Ferrari Classiche certification is worth big bucks?

1958 BMW 507

Estimate is $900,000 – $1,200,000

Wow, I just pick the expensive cars, or maybe they are all expensive. This one is a real beauty with gorgeous lines.

A little detail work in the engine bay would not hurt.

1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV

Estimate is $1,200,000 – $1,400,000

I still do not understand why the SV model commands such a premium over the P400S and P400 models.
