Gooding & Co’s season-opener is for generations old and new

With just three auctions on its yearly schedule, Gooding & Company has had four months to prepare for its Scottsdale auction on 19–20 January 2018, and with a diverse offering — from the very first Bugatti Type 55 Roadster to a 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder — it’s used that time wisely…

Varied vehicles

No matter your metal of choice, Gooding & Company’s Scottsdale 2018 auction is sure to have your new ride for 2018. Spanning eight decades and over 35 different marques, the catalogue is as diverse as you’ll get. Pre-War enthusiasts will love the star car — the 1931 Bugatti Type 55 Roadster, which was the first of the model built, and as such, it has some features that haven’t been seen on any other Type 55, such as the Grand Prix-style hood with shortened louvers on the side and diagonal louvers cut into the top. For those who grew up in the heyday of the 1950s and ’60s, two of the eras’ most beloved icons are on offer — a 1968 Ferrari Dino 206 GT and a 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL ‘Gullwing’. While the youngtimers will enjoy the ’90s hero 1991 Lamborghini Diablo and such modern supercars as a 2015 McLaren P1 and a 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder. The entire catalogue for this auction can be found in the Classic Driver Market, while, alternatively, our top 10 cars are listed below.
