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.' 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. Excellent examples of Duesenberg consistently bring in strong multi-million dollar sales such as the 1933 Disappearing-top Murphy Roadster that sold on Saturday for $2,695,000. Gooding & Company achieved 16 world records over the weekend: 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider (lot 30) at $8,250,000 A world record for a steel Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider at auction. 1959 Porsche 718 RSK (lot 112) at $3,135,000 A world record for a Porsche 718 RSK at auction. 1957 Maserati 150 GT Spider (lot 122) at $3,080,000 A world record for a Maserati 150 GT Spider. 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500 K Cabriolet A (lot 38) at $2,750,000 A world record for a Mercedes-Benz 500 K Cabriolet at auction. 1933 Duesenberg Model J Disappearing-Top Convertible Coupe (lot 116) at $2,695,000 A world record for a Duesenberg Model J Murphy Disappearing-Top Convertible Coupe at auction. 1938 Bugatti Type 57C Atalante (lot 25) at $2,035,000 A world record for a Bugatti Type 57C at auction. 2003 Ferrari Enzo (lot 45) at $1,485,000 A world record for a Ferrari Enzo at auction. 1995 Ferrari F50 (lot 8) at $1,375,000 A world record for a Ferrari F50 at auction. 1965 Shelby 289 Cobra (lot 135) at $1,320,000 A world record for a Shelby 289 Cobra at auction. 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Low-Roof Berlinetta (lot 139) at $836,000 A world record for a steel Ferrari 250 GT Low-Roof Berlinetta at auction. 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Roadster (lot 128) at $825,000 A world record for a Chevrolet Corvette L88 at auction. 1947 Cisitalia 202 SMM Spider Nuvolari (lot 16) at $650,000 A world record for a Cisitalia at auction. 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS (lot 14) at $506,000 A world record for a Ferrari Dino 246 GTS at auction. 1955 Porsche 356 Continental Cabriolet (lot 131) at $310,750 A world record for a Porsche 356 Continental Cabriolet at auction. 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale (lot 132) at $198,000 A world record for an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale at auction. 1963 Studebaker Avanti R2 (lot 9) at $74,800 A world record for a Studebaker Avanti R2 at auction.
