Three classic Ferraris from a single collection are set to be the headline lots at Gooding & Company’s first ‘Geared online’ sale on 3-7 August.
The company’s online-only debut will permit bidding exclusively via the firm’s website and app, plus with all the lots held in a single facility, prospective buyers can arrange on-site viewings, too.
And with a $2.2-2.6m (c£1.7-2m) estimate, the 1995 Ferrari F50 pictured above is proof that there’s no change in the mouth-watering models available.
It’s one of 55 US-spec F50s and this V12-powered, Pininfarina-penned stunner is being sold with its factory hardtop box, luggage and toolkit.
And with the same estimate – and from the same enthusiast’s collection – the F50 is joined by a 2003 Ferrari Enzo.
It is being sold by the family of its first owner and finished in silver with a tan interior, it’s said to be in ‘impeccable’ condition.
The final Prancing Horse in this trio is the era-defining F40 and it’s estimated it will achieve $1.25-1.5m in August.
Again, this US-market example has been with the same family from new, plus it has covered just 4589 miles and is said to be in highly original condition.
Of course, it’s not all Ferraris, and although the full lot list is yet to be revealed, there is one more treat that has broken cover…
This 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 wears a bespoke Schwarzmetallic Brilliant paintjob with an also-unique Naturorange leather-trimmed interior.
First registered to Porsche, it’s been consigned to Gooding’s sale with its factory tools and books, and a chunky history file, and it is anticipated it will achieve $150-200,000.
“Gooding & Company is excited to introduce this new format of online only auctions starting this summer and continuing in the months to follow,” commented Gooding & Company President and Founder, David Gooding.
“For sellers, online auctions offer great flexibility in terms of timing and the ability to reach a truly global audience.”
Bidding opens at 9am (PDT) on 3 August and closes on 7 August at 12pm (PDT) – find out more here.
