Gooding & Company will feature a quartet of motorsport legends at their 2012 Pebble Beach auction, to be held August 18th and 19th in Pebble Beach, California. The latest consignments include a 1928 Bentley 4 1/2 Litre Le Mans Sports “Bobtail” team car, the 1964 Ford GT40 Prototype 104, a 1955 Ferrari 857 Sport and a 1960 Porsche RS60 Spyder. The 2012 Gooding Pebble Beach auction will be the first time the Ford GT40, Ferrari 857S and Porsche RS60 have been presented for public sale.
“Never before have four racing legends with great originality been presented for public sale at the same auction,” says David Gooding, President and founder of Gooding & Company. “More so than ever before, our Pebble Beach Auctions mark an extremely significant time when collectors of the world’s rarest automobiles shift portions of their collections to make room for other important cars after many years of stewardship. This creates incredible opportunities for new ownership of these legends.”
The 2012 Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Auctions will take place on Saturday and Sunday, August 18 and 19 at the Pebble Beach Equestrian Center, located at the corner of Portola Road and Stevenson Drive. Preview days will start on Wednesday, August 15, and continue through Sunday, August 19. The auctions will commence at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auctions catalogues are available for $100 and admit two to the viewing and the auctions. General admission tickets to the viewing and auctions may be purchased on-site for $40.
