Gooding announced low mileage supercars including a Pagani Huayra, Porsche 918, McLaren P1 and Lexus LFA for its Scottsdale 2018 classic car auction.
Several nearly new, low-mileage mileage hypercars will be available at the Gooding Scottsdale 2018 classic car auction in January 2018. The 2014 Pagani Huayra (Estimate: $2,200,000-$2,600,000) is one of 100 ever produced and has driven less than 1,000 miles. The 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder (Estimate: $1,800,000-$2,200,000) is more common but the car on offer has covered less than 100 miles. The 2015 McLaren P1 (Estimate: $1,800,000-$2,200,000) is one of only 375 examples built and has covered 1,700 miles. The 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package (Estimate: $900,000-$1,200,000) is one of 500 and has been driven only 60 miles. Blue-chip classics, including a 1931 Bugatti Type 55 Roadster (estimate $4,000,000-$5,000,000) will also be on offer.
Gooding Scottsdale 2018 Classic Car Auction
Gooding & Co will hold its 11th annual Scottsdale classic car auction on January 19 & 20, 2018, at the Scottsdale Fashion Square, in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.
In 2017, Gooding gained $33.4 million at the Scottsdale auction by selling 106 of the 126 lots on offer – a good 84% sell-through rate. The top result in 2017 was $3.3 million – a new model record for a 1925 Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix. In 2016, Gooding grossed $43 million from 113 cars and in 2015 it achieved $51.5 million from 126 cars on offer.
Supercars at Gooding Scottsdale 2018 Sale
Gooding & Company announced an array of low-mileage supercars from Pagani, Porsche, McLaren, Lexus, Ferrari and Lamborghini for the annual two-day Scottsdale Auctions 2018. These bespoke, top-of-the-line exotics offer the utmost in design, engineering, and performance from legendary marques – all the more a pity that nobody seems to actually drive these high-performance cars.
“Each model represented here had a very limited production run and were sold out immediately after hitting the marketplace,” says David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company. “What truly sets these particular examples apart from other elite supercars are the individually tailored, special-order features, limited mileage, and well-documented history.”
2014 Pagani Huayra
The 2014 Pagani Huayra (Estimate: $2,200,000-$2,600,000) is one of the ultimate supercars ever produced. The follow-up to the legendary Pagani Zonda, this lightweight exotic is powered by an AMG twin-turbo V-12 engine, capable of speeds over 230 mph, and can accelerate to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. As beautiful as it is fast, the Huayra is considered by many to be a contemporary masterpiece of automotive design and engineering, featuring intricate details and a handsomely finished interior.
The Pagani on offer at Gooding Scottsdale 2018 is no. 87 of the 100 Huayras produced and is believed to be the only one in existence that was special-ordered in Carbonio Rosso, an exposed red carbon fiber body. This unique Huayra has traveled less than 1,000 miles and is presented with its original tools, manuals, and custom-order fitted luggage.
At least two Pagani Huayaras have sold for more than $2 million in the past two years.
2015 Porsche 918 Spyder
The Porsche 918 Spyder (Estimate: $1,800,000-$2,200,000) is about numbers, mind-blowing numbers. This supercar is capable of 214 mph, can sprint to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds, produces 887 hp and 944 lbs./ft. of torque, and somehow manages to achieve 75 MPG from its hybrid powertrain. Due to all this performance technology, the 918 Spyder held the Nürburgring production car lap record for four years with a time of 6:57.00. Porsche offered just 918 examples of this flagship model and six months before the final car was built in June 2015, the 918 Spyder had sold out.
The Porsche 918 on offer at Gooding Scottsdale 2018 offers a stunning one-of-one color scheme of Guards Red over a Garnet interior, highlighted by optional carbon fiber and Porsche “special wishes” features. Even more surprising, this 918 Spyder has traveled less than 100 miles since new and is offered with its original delivery accessories.
At least six Porsche 918 Spyders have been sold at auction with results ranging from $1,622,500 to $1,842,500. Most were low mileage cars but not below 100 miles.
2015 McLaren P1
McLaren set out to build the best driver’s car in the world when it began development on the flagship P1. The company wanted to infuse Formula 1 technology with everyday usability. McLaren designed a new hybrid powertrain; it did not alternate between gas and electric power, but sought to minimize the inefficiencies in the gas motor. McLaren also pursued a beautifully sculpted design that followed the philosophy of form shaped by function. Inspired by efficient forms found in marine life and utilizing aerodynamics from McLaren’s Formula 1 cars, the P1 established a new design language for the company’s product range moving forward.
The bespoke 2015 McLaren P1 (Estimate: $1,800,000-$2,200,000) at Gooding Scottsdale 2018 is one of only 375 examples built, is finished in a striking Special Carbon Black livery, and has traveled less than 1,700 miles since new, making this a special opportunity to acquire a low-mile example.
At least six McLaren P1s have been sold at auction with results ranging from $1,925,000 at Gooding Pebble Beach 2015 to $2,392,500 at Gooding Amelia Island 2017.
2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package
Lexus’ first supercar, the LFA, was the product of almost a decade of development and engineering. Using state-of-the-art materials and an engine derived from Formula 1 racing, the Lexus LFA is blisteringly fast: it can hit a top speed of 202 mph and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. The LFA is not only a driver-focused car, but also offers all the comforts of a modern luxury grand tourer.
The 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package (Estimate: $900,000-$1,200,000) on offer at Gooding Scottsdale 2018 was the 498th of the 500 LFA models produced. In addition, this example is one of only 50 examples equipped with the Nürburgring Package, a track-focused option that delivers an increase in engine power, a recalibrated transmission for quicker shift points, and a revised racetrack-inspired sport suspension. This brilliant exotic, finished in Whitest White with attractive red and white upholstery, has less than 60 miles from new and may be the only remaining delivery-mile example in existence.
More Super Sports Cars at Gooding Scottsdale 2018
Gooding will also offer several super sports cars that are expected to achieve below a million dollar at Scottsdale 2018. A few of these, generally with more mileage than the cars listed above but still with very low mileage for a used car include:
- The 2004 Porsche Carrera GT (Estimate: $650,000-$800,000), delivered new to actor and comedian Tim Allen has covered less than 2,900 miles from new.
- The 2009 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano (Estimate: $500,000-$600,000), is a rare manual-gearbox example with less than 5,000 miles from new.
- The 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 650-4 Roadster (Estimate: $375,000-$450,000), is the 49th of only 50 examples built and has covered less than 200 miles from new.
- The 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia (Estimate: $275,000-$325,000), has covered only approximately 400 miles from new making it possibly the lowest mileage example in existence.
Blue-chip classics, including a 1931 Bugatti Type 55 Roadster (estimate $4,000,000-$5,000,000) will also be on offer at Gooding Scottsdale 2018.
