First Gooding lots revealed for Amelia Island


To coincide with the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance's news of some of the Hollywood glamour-wagons due to appear at the event, Gooding & Co has revealed just a few of the lots already consigned for its companion auction at the Florida concours on 9 March.

Although hardly rivalling its Pebble Beach lot list (yet!), there is already a healthy smattering of sexy machinery lined up, with plenty more promised by the time of the sale.

Vying to be the star from the first batch disclosed are a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL 'Gullwing' (above, estimated at $700-900,000) and a 1953 Fiat Otto Vu Zagato (below, $750-900,000).

Also set to cross the block are a super-desirable 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 ($275-350,000) and a concours 1947 Ford Sportsman woodie with an intimidating guide price of $225-275,000.

Gooding & Co boss David Gooding said: "We’ve shared a few thrilling auction moments with our guests in Amelia Island in the past two years, with the record-breaking sales and bidding rallies over the 1931 Voisin Mylord Demi-Berline as well as post-war Ferrari 212 and Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Prototype. With this year’s early consignments in mind, I expect another exciting Amelia Island Auction ahead."
