Gooding & Co. wheel out the big guns for Pebble Beach

If there was ever an event in which an auction house should pull out all the stops, it’s Monterey Car Week. And Gooding & Co. has done just that, with a catalogue featuring some of the most iconic, desirable, and rare vehicles around…

For most, the talking point of the sale will likely be the 1970 Porsche 917K — the star of Steve McQueen’s Le Mans and estimated between 13 and 16 million US dollars — but there are plenty of superstar consignments set to cross the block at Pebble Beach. For motorsport fans, pulses are sure to quick at the sight of two radiant red racers: a 1964 Porsche 904 with continuous provenance, singular identity, and the desirable Type 587/3 engine (est. 1.5–1.8m US dollars) and an ex-Derek Bell and Jacky Ickx 1974 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 TT 12 in to-die-for Campari colours (est. 2.4– 2.8m US dollars). Zagato is well represented by two design deities, a 1954 Fiat 8 V Elaborata (est 1.4–1.8m US dollars), one of just four believed to exist today, as well as the holy grail for many design fans — a 1956 Maserati A6G/54 in exquisite restored condition and has been previously displayed at The Quail (est. 4–5m US dollars). With countless other top-class vehicles on offer, you can find 10 particularly blue-chip listings below, or browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market.
