SANTA MONICA, Calif. (December 9, 2016) – Gooding & Company, the auction house acclaimed for selling the world's most significant and valuable collector cars, is honored to announce exceptional performance cars from Ferrari, American Motors, and Lancia at its 10th annual two-day Scottsdale Auctions on January 20 and 21, 2017. Gooding & Company welcomes enthusiasts and collectors to experience these automotive achievements from legendary designers including ItalDesign, Pininfarina and Bertone.

'Produced in very limited numbers, these striking cars are special to me for their groundbreaking design and impressive performance, which make them exhilarating to drive and highly collectible,' notes David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company.

1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose Alloy

(Estimate: $2,900,000-$3,200,000)

Designed by Pininfarina with coachwork by Scaglietti, the Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose Alloy is the ultimate road-going 275 GTB Ferrari. Scaglietti built just 205 examples with the desirable long nose body style, of which only 80 were the lightweight aluminum variants. The alloy-bodied 275 GTB presented here, chassis 08117, was completed in late 1965 and finished in the elegant color scheme of Grigio Argento Metallizzato (silver) over a black leather interior. The car was restored by Italian specialists Brandoli, Sauro and Luppi, who upgraded the engine from its original three-carburetor setup to the more desirable six-carburetor arrangement for enhanced performance. Offered for sale in the US for the first time in over 15 years, this superb 1960s berlinetta has been Ferrari Classiche certified and presents a great opportunity for the discerning collector.

1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast

(Estimate: $2,800,000-$3,200,000)

Introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in March 1964, the Ferrari 500 Superfast was the ultimate offering to the marque's wealthiest clients. Only 36 examples were built and the price matched the exclusivity, as the 500 Superfast was nearly double the price of any other Ferrari the company offered in the 1960s. Equipped with a 5.0-liter V-12 producing 400hp, this sleek missile was capable of nearly 175 mph, yet was also very comfortable for long-distance touring. The stunning Series I 500 Superfast offered here, chassis 5989 SF, is an original left-hand drive car and only the seventh example built. Sold new in California, beautifully restored by leading West Coast specialists, and Ferrari Classiche certified, this stunning 500 Superfast is a unique opportunity for the true connoisseur of the finest classic cars. These cars are rarely offered at public auction, and today, as when new, they remain one of Ferrari's finest bespoke Gran Tourers.

    1969 American Motors AMX/3

    (Estimate: $900,000-$1,300,000)

    In 1968, American Motors sought to focus on more performance-based products that could better compete with foreign competition and infuse excitement in the brand. Richard 'Dick' Teague, the head of design at AMC, was tasked with designing a mid-engine sports car, which resulted in the AMX/3 program. The program collaborated with other firms, which included BMW, ItalDesign and Bizzarrini to assist with the engineering and design elements of the AMX/3. This example is known as the Monza car, due to the aerodynamic development that Bizzarrini put it through at the racetrack in 1970, testing that resulted in a top speed of 170 mph. After an extensive concours-quality restoration, this AMX/3 won First in Class at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance®, in the featured Bizzarrini class. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of American automotive history.

    1975 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale

    (Estimate: $500,000-$600,000)

    The Lancia Stratos was built with one mission in mind, to win World Rally Championship titles. With a chassis and engine from the Ferrari Dino and a striking design by Bertone, the Stratos looked like nothing else the world had ever seen and went on to win three consecutive titles. The road-going version of the famed rally car, such as the example presented here, chassis 001948, was completed at Bertone's Grugliasco works in 1974 and painted in the rare Azzuro (Blue) livery. This particular car was once part of Peter Kaus's famed Rosso Bianco Collection in Germany. Only 492 examples were produced, and this Stradale example is one of the best Lancia Stratos ever offered for public sale. It has undergone a recent comprehensive cosmetic and mechanical restoration and ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
