Gooding & Company's 2013 Scottsdale Auctions Realize $52.5 Million, up 31% from 2012  • Gooding & Company breaks an Arizona auction week record selling the 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider for $8.25 million

• Seven cars sell above the $2 million mark and 12 cars sell above $1 million

• Sixteen World Records Realized for Best-of-Category Cars Sold

SCOTTSDALE, Az. (January 20, 2013) —Gooding & Company, the auction house acclaimed for selling the world's most significant and valuable collector cars, realized $52.5 million at its annual Scottsdale Auctions this weekend. The auction house sold 101 of 104 lots, resulting in a 97% sales rate and an impressive average price of $519,727 per car sold. With a 31% increase from last year's Scottsdale Auctions, these superb results demonstrate the increasing international demand for the rare, best-of-category collector cars that Gooding & Company specializes in bringing to market.

'With our significantly higher total for fewer cars sold at this year's Scottsdale Auctions, the 2013 season looks brighter than ever for the high-end collector car market,' says David Gooding, President and founder of Gooding & Company. 'In line with this market strength, we also continue to develop and improve as a company. The Gooding & Company team is proud to continue providing the best quality service and presentation possible.'

Gooding & Company's 2013 Scottsdale Auctions Realize $52.5 Million, up 31% from 2012  The top-selling lot of the week, Friday's $8.25 million 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, broke records for both a steel LWB California Spider and is the most valuable car ever sold in Arizona auction week's history. Its sale marks the sixth consecutive year the auction house achieved the top-selling lot during January's annual auction week. In addition, Gooding & Company sold six of the top 10 most valuable cars of all the houses this week.

Power of Preservation and Limited Ownership

All original, low-mileage preservation cars with limited-ownership history brought extraordinary results, sometimes doubling estimates for the best models. Examples include a 1956 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America that sold for $803,000 (estimate of $400,000 - $450,000), a 1965 Shelby 289 Cobra that sold for $1,320,000 (estimate of $850,000 - $1,100,000), and a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 Sc Cabriolet that sold for $825,000, doubling its estimate of $400,000 - $450,000. New owners of these rare, time-capsule cars are among very few in the world who can say they own cars of equal authenticity.

American Top Sales

On Saturday, the powerful and exceptionally well-documented 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Roadster sold for $825,000, setting a new record for the model and raising the bar for American collector enthusiasts' ultimate big-block engine icon. Also, a 1941 Packard Custom Super-8 One-Eighty Sport Brougham sold well at $176,000 without reserve, surpassing its high estimate.
