Gooding announced three consignments that represent Britain’s pre- and post-war automotive achievements: the first 1949 Jaguar XK120 Alloy imported to America, a 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Sedanca Drop Head Coupe by Gurney Nutting and a 1962 Lotus 23B vintage racer formerly owned by racing driver Brian Redman.
“We achieved great results and received a tremendous positive reaction following our 2010 Amelia Island Auction,” says David Gooding, President and founder of Gooding & Company. “Our team is thrilled to return to the enchanting Omni Amelia Island Plantation this March, when we will be bringing more of the world’s very best examples to auction.”
The inaugural Gooding & Company Amelia Island auction resulted in more than $16.14 Million in sales for 58 lots sold, setting world records for the weekend’s top-selling $2.75 Million 1931 Voisin Mylord Demi-Berline and the $1.705 Million 1961 Porsche RS61 Spyder purchased by the legendary Sir Stirling Moss.
