Gooding & Company's Saturday Pebble Beach Auction realizes more than $60 million  In the first of two nights, Gooding & Company's Saturday Pebble Beach Auction realizes more than $60 million

Gooding & Company, the official auction house of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance acclaimed for selling the world's most significant and valuable collector cars, sold more than $60 million in collector cars last night, at the first of its two Pebble Beach evening auctions. Sixty-one of the 68 lots available sold, a 90% sale rate, the most notable being the 1960 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider that set a world record for a LWB California Spider at $11,275,000.

'We had the most successful one-day sale in our Pebble Beach history yesterday with more than $60 million in sales and wonderful excitement surrounding the sale of Jay Leno's Fiat 500,' says David Gooding, President and Founder. 'It's incredible that yesterday's results do not yet take into account two of our star attractions, the von Krieger Special Roadster and Clark Gables's 1935 Duesenberg, which will be offered at our auction this evening following the Concours.'

One of last night's highlights was the sale of Jay Leno's Fiat 500 Prima Edizione benefitting the Fisher House Foundation. United States Secretary of Defense the Honorable Leon Panetta and Chief of Staff of the United States Army General Raymond Odierno joined Leno on stage to introduce the nationally praised four-star, non-profit organization that provides a wide range of services and support to the families of wounded American solders. The first-edition Fiat 500, valued between $25,000–$35,000 according to the auction estimate, realized a final price of $385,000 and attracted an additional $215,000 of charitable contributions, resulting in $600,000 of fundraising for the foundation.
