Pebble Beach, 22nd August, 2022
Gooding & Company also offered several top of the line, ultra-desirable blue-chip classics, including an
incredibly well-preserved, unrestored 1961 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupé Aerodinamico
which sold for $6,000,000.
Porsches continued to constitute a significantly large portion of the auction house’s lineup, and several world
records were set with especially rare, important models. The top Porsche sale of the weekend was the 2007
Porsche RS Spyder Evo, which achieved $5,615,000 and set a new world record at auction for the model.
With an outstanding race record, including two outright wins and four class wins, this Penske Racing Spyder
sits among the most successful prototype racers in all of Porsche history.
Yet another significant competition Porsche to cross the auction block was a 1969 Porsche 908/02, which
set a new world record at auction for the 908 model by achieving $4,185,000. With a competition history
including races at Brands Hatch, Targa Florio, and Nürburgring, this factory-works Porsche 908/02
represented an important moment in time for the marque’s legacy as a competition powerhouse. In addition
to these tried-and-true racing Porsches, Gooding & Company sold a number of dual-purpose and road-going
examples, including a stunning 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight in Seeblau which set a
new world record at auction for the model by bringing in $2,425,000.
The incredibly low-mileage 1994 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport also set a new world record at auction for the
model, achieving $3,167,500. Other stellar supercar sales included the 2004 Ferrari Enzo, which sold for
$4,130,000, and a 1995 Ferrari F50 previously owned by heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson, which
sold for $4,625,000.

The auction house also had the honor of presenting cars from the collections of highly regarded, passionate
enthusiasts and collectors, including the late Tony Vincent, privateer legend William M. Wonder, and Rudy
“Mr. 993” Mancinas. The Tony Vincent Estate Collection of predominantly Classic Era offerings was led by
the sale of a 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Sport Cabriolet A, which sold for $3,085,000. The top sale of the
William M. Wonder Collection of motor sports icons was a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing,
which achieved $2,040,000. Further, 100% of offerings from the Rudy “Mr. 993” Mancinas Collection,
consisting of Porsches and BMWs, sold well, as evidenced by the top sale, a 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S
which achieved $168,000.
The company also sold a 1937 Bugatti Type 57C Ventoux from the Mark J. Smith Collection for
$940,000, as well as a pair of Rolls-Royce Phantoms from the William Maxwell Davis Estate: a 1933
Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Tourer, which sold for $456,000, and a 1937 Rolls-Royce
Phantom III Sedanca Coupe, which achieved $207,200. Additionally, the auction tent witnessed spirited
bidding with the presentation of the 1951 Hudson Hornet Two-Door Coupe specified as the real-life
iteration of the “Doc Hudson” character in Disney•Pixar’s Cars (2006), voiced by legendary actor Paul
Newman. The Hudson Hornet achieved $168,000 at the auction, and the consignor has pledged a portion of
the sale proceeds to Paul Newman’s SeriousFun Children’s Network.
