It’s not everyday that a $2.7 million (estimate) car comes across the block, but here at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, it’s perhaps less unusual. That particular car is, unsurprisingly, a Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, one of the rarest and most desirable of the prancing horses. But the Gooding auction is not just a one-trick pony – as the official auction house of the Concours, they will be auctioning off 169 cars worth millions of dollars in what should be one of the most incredible auctions this year. We were on hand at the pre-auction viewing to give you a backstage look at all of the lust-able cars on display. Our mega-gallery below should give you an idea of what is crossing the block … also check out Gooding’s auction preview page for more information about the cars up for auction.
There was by far too much to see to be able to comment on it all, but we were especially fond of the Ghia turbine car concept car from 1955, the Streamline X “Gilda.” Fitted with the actual functioning turbine engine that it never had making the auto show rounds, it is conservatively estimated to bring a cool million dollars when it goes under the hammer. Ghia was well represented actually – see if you can spot the Dual-Ghias in the huge gallery below.
