We would bid on these 10 cars at Gooding's Scottsdale sale
The friend your parents warned you about
Three for the price of one with our crowd favourite lot from the Gooding & Company auction. This Citroën SM land speed racer comes with its own SM custom pickup and specially constructed trailer. Roll up to Bonneville Salt Flats or Pendine Sands in confidence that you have won car of the show as you then drive off, chasing the sun at up to 200mph in this unique and slightly crazy SM that is, we think, still the world's fastest Citroën to this day.
As usual Gooding & Company are presenting a fine selection of classics for auction. The 1926 Bugatti Type 37 has been in the same ownership for 60 years and wears a glorious patina. With period racing success at Pau in 1927 where it placed third on the challenging street circuit, this is a slice of history waiting for it’s next chapter. With that Colombo V12 engine the 330 GTC remains a incredibly affordable way to enjoy classic Ferrari V12 motoring, the dark blue 1967 example is surely a great investment. Also catching our eye is the one of two, DB2/4 Drophead coupes bodied by Bertone. A real collectors' item that deserves to be shown off.
The Scandinavian scud
A twin-turbo V8 and three electric motors combine to give the Koenigsegg Regera 1500hp, all that power is transferred to the tarmac via the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system that removes the traditional gearbox. All this means that if you have the space you can propel the Regera from 0-400-0km/h in a face warping 22.87 seconds. With just 369 miles from its single ownership and a raft of options this is one of the pinnacles of modern hypercar production.
Two late ‘60s icons that can confidently roll down in to Monaco’s Casino Square or LA’s Venice Beach. The Meyers Manx and Mini Moke both represent freedom, in terms of design and as human beings. Driving enjoyment with friends doesn’t get much better than terrorising the local streets in one of these!
