Revealed: the highest - and lowest - achievers at Gooding’s Scottsdale sale

There were more than 110 cars sold across the two-day Gooding & Co sale on 16-17 January, and according to the results published online nearly half of them went for less than their lower estimate. Around 88% sold for less than their higher estimate.

Best of the strong performers was a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso. One of only 30 Lussos built with a history documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini went for £1.2 million. |This was £200,000 above the lower estimate of £1 million.

Another car to exceed expectations by more than £200,000 was the Dodge Challenger sold by Jay Leno. It raised £237,000 for United Service Organisations (USO), a charity that provides programmes, services and live entertainment to US troops.

And a 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS offered from 45 years of single ownership beat its lower estimate by more than £160,000, selling for just over £1 million.

However, a pair of Ferraris was also the two cars sold furthest below estimate. A 1959 250 GT sold for just over £5 million, nearly £200,000 below the lower estimate, and a 1968 330 GTS went for just under £1.6 million, around £100,000 less than the estimate.
