1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta

The headlining lot of Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auctions is this 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, notable for its remarkably original and well preserved condition. Unlike the vast majority of 250-series Ferraris, this example has never been restored, and remains in good working order. Chassis 3507 GT is finished in Grigio Metallizzatto (Metallic Gray) and retains its original beige leather upholstery, which possesses a fantastic, irreplaceable patina. With just four owners from new, this elegant and enticing SWB Berlinetta has only covered 53,000 km (33,000 miles) in its lifetime, and has never before been offered for public sale.

1933 Bugatti Type 55 Roadster

The precious few Jean Bugatti Roadsters that survive to this day are among the most exclusive road-going Bugattis, far more rare than even the Type 57S Atalante. This Type 55 Roadster, fashioned with Jean Bugatti’s famous coachwork, was exhibited on Henri Sagnier’s stand at the inaugural Foire d’Alger in Algiers upon completion and has since had an equally exciting and glamorous life. In 1986, it was prepared to join the world-class collection of Ralph Lauren, where it remained until 2003. In recent years, the Type 55 has been inspected by leading historians Pierre-Yves Laugier and Mark Morris, who both confirmed that the Roadster retains its original chassis frame, engine, gearbox, rear end, and coachwork. Its next owner will also be pleased to find that this car has a combined acceptance to two upcoming 1000 Miglia events, the Warm Up USA Event in November 2023, and the world-renowned 1000 Miglia in 2024, subject to registration and entry fee.

1936 Hispano-Suiza J12 Cabriolet

One of only ten original-bodied open J12s known to exist, this sporty Hispano-Suiza features desirable Jacques Saoutchik coachwork. Collector owned from the start, the J12 joined the stable of a highly regarded American collector and longtime Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® judge in 1985, remaining with him for the next 25 years. During this time, it underwent a complete mechanical rebuild to prepare it for high-speed touring, entrusted to prewar automotive specialist Rick Hamlin. Since then, the J12 has participated in Hispano-Suiza Society Rallies in Spain and California, as well as the Colorado Grand and CCCA CARavans. Acquired by the current owner in 2010, the J12 was thoroughly restored by California’s very best experts before being shown at Pebble Beach in 2013, where it won the Alec Ulmann trophy.

Never before offered for sale in the US, and yet to be exhibited on the international concours scene, this Miura comes to market just at the right time as the community celebrates the legendary Italian marque’s 60th anniversary.

Its provenance consists of only the most reputable collectors, including William E. “Chip” Connor II, Bruce “King Carrera” Jennings, and Dr. William Jackson. More recently, this RS60 was campaigned at Rennsport Reunion IV and Le Mans Classic, a testament to its lasting mechanical fitness. It comes to auction retaining its original Wendler-built aluminum coachwork and factory-delivered engine.
