The Scottsdale Auction Week has just wrapped up its activities and has achieved its status as the most successful auction ever, pulling in $14.2 Million in final sales. Among those sales were some oldies, but goodies which brought in more than their fair share of benjamins.
“Scottsdale’s sunshine cast a warm glow over the Valley this week but the real heat emanated from our auction today with a fantastic crowd turnout and more than $14 Million in sales,” said President and founder David Gooding. “Collectors and enthusiasts will not want to miss the excitement tomorrow, when highlights such as our barnfind 1948 Tucker and Fiat 8V Supersonic are presented.”
On a vintage note, several significant and highly-original cars from the 1950s and 60s sold very well, including a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing that sold for $858,000, a 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB that sold for $797,500, and an unrestored 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra that sold for $610,500.
But one of the most impressive auctions was a 2006 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione which sold for an impressive $2.09 Million. This model is one of 30 FXX examples of Ferrari’s most advanced production car ever created. It is powered by a 6262 cc V12 engine that delivers 860 hp at 9500 rpm and is capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds, while top speed goes up to an impressive 249 mph.

Gooding and Company are preparing for an amazing auction event set to take place on Friday, January 21 2011 in Scottsdale. This event will lead to the auctioning off of many supercars belonging to the estate of renowned collector Benny Caiola. Although many supercars will be in attendance and hoping to be sold to a good home, the two most prized pieces will be the 2006 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione and a 2005 Maserati MC 12.
The 2006 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione is one of 30 FXX examples of Ferrari’s most advanced production car ever created. It is powered by a 6262 cc V12 engine that delivers 860 hp at 9500 rpm and is capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds, while top speed goes up to an impressive 249 mph.
The 2005 Maserati MC 12 was purchased direct from the factory and is vehicle number 31 of the 50 built. It is powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 engine that delivers an impressive 624 HP and can exceed 205mph at full throttle, sprinting from 0 to 60mph in just 3.8 seconds.
The two models are expected to be auctioned off for more than $4 million and join a long line of other supercars ready to take the auction plunge. The list of cars includes a 1995 Ferrari F50, a 2010 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano HGTE, a 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4, and a 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster.
