Gooding & Company launches its very first online auction series ‘Geared Online’ With a Series of Classic Ferraris
Unveiling an exciting new platform for auctions to be held exclusively through a dedicated website and mobile bidding app, Gooding & Company launches its very first online auction series. Dubbed ‘Geared Online’, the series which aims to complement the company’s annual live auction events and offer a selection of reserve and no reserve lots, will be held from 26th to 30th October 2020. Housing all vehicles included in the online auction within one accessible setting, Geared Online is expected to provide unique features such as on-site inspections for interested bidders, direct engagement between buyers and sellers, and an array of classic builds including, the 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, 2005 Ferrari 575M, and a 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT.
Worth an estimated $1,400,000 – $1,800,000, the 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso is often regarded as a larger and more luxurious 250 GT Berlinetta. Designed by the Turinese coachbuilder Pininfarina, and bodied by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, the 250 GT Lusso sports palatial interiors of Amaranto over beige leather. Worthy of outings to Concours d’Elegance shows and Ferrari Club of America events, this 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso is amongst the last 350 examples built.
Characterized as a two-seat, two-door, grand tourer, the 2005 Ferrari 575M is essentially an updated 550 Maranello featuring minor styling changes from Pininfarina. Worth an estimated $275,000 – $350,000, this build’s redesigned interior and substantial mechanical improvements, include larger brake discs, improved weight distribution, refined aerodynamics, an adaptive suspension set-up, and an enlarged 5.75-liter V12 engine. Equipped with the coveted six-speed manual gearbox instead of the less desirable F1 paddle shifters, this classic find is finished in titanium over beige leather, with less than 10,000 miles clocked on its meter.
Produced by Ferrari and sold under the Dino marque, this 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT is part of a long lineage of V6 mid-engine sports cars which were prevalent throughout 1967 to 1974. Lauded by many for its intrinsic driving qualities and ground-breaking design, the Dino 246 was the first automobile manufactured by Ferrari in high numbers, ranking sixth on Sports Car International’s list of Top Sports Cars of the 1970s, and number seven on Motor Trend Classic’s Greatest Ferraris of all time. Showcasing seat-mounted headrests, relocated rear deck lid releases and door locks, short glove box doors, and shallow passenger footwells, this 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT is worth approximately $275,000 – $325,000, and presented in the classic colour combination of Rosso Corsa over beige leather.
