Top cars sell well for Gooding, RM Sotheby's on Day Three in Monterey

Gooding & Company joined the fray on day three in Monterey, while Mecum, Russo and Steele, and RM Sotheby’s closed out their events. So far, sales have amounted to $288M, which is $45M less than last year, and the sell-through rate is three points lower than in 2015. Given the recent shift in the market, setting realistic reserves has proven to be difficult—depending on the type of car, 65%-75% of cars were bid to realistic amounts.

Following in line with the previous day, nearly all of the top cars sold. RM Sotheby’s star car for the day—the 1939 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Lungo Spider—sold for an impressive $19.8M, establishing a new world record for a prewar car at public auction. Gooding inspired another amazing result for a Ferrari Cal Spider—this one a LWB Alloy car—at $18.15M, and also sold a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB comp car at $13.5M after it went unsold on the block.

A few of the big cars did miss, of course, including RM’s Cal Spider—also a LWB car—at $9.4M, RM’s Ferrari 268 SP race car at $12.5M, and Gooding’s Porsche 550A roadster at $4.2M. Even still, results thus far confirm that buyers at the upper reaches consider now to be a fine time to add to their collections.

Prewar cars and cars from the 2010s saw rising sell-through rates versus the first two days. At a model level, later Porsche 911s have sold low compared to their conditions, including 930s, 964s, and 993s. Early C through J series (1969-77) 911s, on the other hand, fared very well. C2 Corvettes recorded subpar prices, as have Mercedes-Benz 280SLs. Conversely, Ferrari Testarossas, Advanced Design Chevy pickups from 1947-55, and Maserati 3500GTs all realized strong prices relative to their conditions.

Gooding gets the spotlight all to itself on Sunday, as far as the auctions are concerned. Attendees from the nearby Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will walk over after Best In Show is announced, and settle in to watch how much excitement a 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB, a 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza, and a 1932 Bugatti Type 55 Roadster can generate.
