A 1995 Ferrari F50 and a 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast are the two leading cars for the Gooding Scottsdale 2020 classic car auction.
The four most expensive cars on offer at the Gooding Scottsdale 2020 sale in Arizona, USA, are all Ferraris: the 1995 Ferrari F50 and 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast were top of the marque models while the 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS and 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/B Daytona Spider are cabriolet models that far exceed the values of the coupé versions. Further interesting cars on offer include a 1948 Tucker 48, a 1932 Hispano-Suiza J12 Dual Cowl Phaeton, and three Mercedes-Benz 300 SL models.

Top Ferraris at Gooding Scottsdale 2020
Five Ferraris on offer at the Gooding Scottsdale 2020 classic car auction have presale estimates exceeding a million dollars.
1995 Ferrari F50
The 1995 Ferrari F50 is one of only 55 produced to US-specification, out of a total 349 that were built of the model. The F50 on offer was originally owned by Benny Caiola, a well-known Ferrari collector. It had only two owners from new and has only 5,200 miles on the clock.
A prototype Ferrari F50 – the actual car that featured on many posters of the period – will be on offer during the same week at Worldwide Auctions. Gooding sold this prototype F50 post-hammer for $2.4 million at Scottsdale 2016.
1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast
The 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast is one of only 36 ever produced and considered the only one to have left the factory with black paint. It was powered by a five-liter V12 engine and had a top speed of near 170 mph. At the time, the 500 Superfast was double the price of a 275 GTB. A close relationship with Enzo Ferrari was needed to acquire one – a sales brochure was never printed. The 500 Superfast on offer was the 14th built but show some elements that were only introduced during later production.
1967 Ferrari 330 GTS
The 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS is one of only 99 built. It is presented in a striking Giallo Fly with black leather interior. The car was restored by Forza Motors of Monterey to platinum award-winning standards. Previous owners included Richard Rug Cunningham but the ownership history for the first decade of the 330 GTS is unknown.
A 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC offered in the same auction is expected to sell for around a third of the price of the 330 GTS.
1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider
The 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider is one of only 121 production examples built. It was once owned by two-time Oscar winner Sydney Pollack, and remains in its original livery of Argento Metallizzato over black leather interior. It has only 40,000 miles on the clock.
The 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta offered in the same auction is also expected to achieve only a third or less of the price of the more desirable Spider.
1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet
The 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet was the 68th of 200 examples built and amongst the rarest of roadgoing 250 GTs. It was delivered new to Mexican entrepreneur Alejo Peralta and the car spent most of its life in Mexico. The matching numbers car is currently finished in dark red over tan and comes with an unrestored original hardtop.
Many Series II Cabriolets sold at auction in recent years with current prices within the guidelines – a few $2 million results were achieved half a decade ago.
Early Classics at Gooding Scottsdale 2020
1948 Tucker 48
The 1948 Tucker 48 was one of the cars actually assembled at the factory rather than completed after production was halted. It is one of 12 cars (out of 51 examples built) finished in Waltz Blue Metallic.
This 1948 Tucker 48 has been driven only 6,200 miles since new and comes with a well-documented provenance.
In the past five years, at least eight Tucker 48s sold for over a million dollars at auction – only one broke the $2-million barrier: at Gooding Pebble Beach 2014.
1932 Hispano-Suiza J12 Dual Cowl Phaeton
The 1932 Hispano-Suiza J12 Dual Cowl Phaeton, chassis 13016, is the most exciting of several 1930s cars on offer at Gooding Scottsdale 2020. It is one of 120 J12 ever produced and one of believed 10 open versions to have survived. In 1954, Chassis 13016 was purchased by famed collector Briggs Cunningham and remained in his collection for 35 years.
From the same era is a 1936 Duesenberg Model JN Tourster – one of ten Model JNs ever built.
Mercedes Benz 300 SLs at Gooding Scottsdale 2020
1950s Mercedes Benz 300 SLs remain popular and in demand despite prices being weaker than a few years ago. A million-dollar dollar result is no longer almost a certainty and few offers approach two million.
At least six Mercedes Benz 300 SLs will be available at the Scottsdale 2020 sales. Gooding alone will offer three:
- The 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing had a single owner from 1962 to 2019. It is largely unknown in the collecting community. The Gullwing is a matching numbers example with 89,000 miles on the clock. It is largely original and unrestored.
- The 1958 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Roadster is a matching numbers example with only four previous owners.
- The 1961 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Roadster is a European-specification model in good running order and clearly priced to sell – barn finds sold for more a few years ago.
Other Million-Dollar Cars on Offer at Gooding Scottsdale 2020
The 1970 Porsche 914/6 GT is clearly aiming for a model record. It is one of only 16 customer cars built by the factory in 1970 and was originally owned and raced by Canadian racing driver Jacques Duval. Race highlights included first in class (7th overall) at the 1971 24 Hours of Daytona.
The 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 S is a European specification model with only 15,455 km on the clock. It was shown at amongst others Pebble Beach in 1996 and Quail Lodge in 2016. Further Murias are on offer at Bonhams and RM Sotheby’s during the same week.
The 2014 McLaren P1 is one of 375 models built. It has 2,200 miles on the clock. The first examples at auction fetched around $2 million but of late several struggled to attract bids much beyond a million.
The 2018 Ford GT is similarly priced to reflect less enthusiasm in the market than was shown for the first examples at auction. This car has only 100 miles on the clock. The 2017 model on offer at RM Sotheby’s Arizona 2020 is not really expected to reach a million dollar.
