Eight Ferraris from the collection of Tony Shooshani will be auctioned off at Gooding and Company’s Scottsdale Auction in January
Ahead of its Scottsdale Auction in January 2016, Gooding and Company has announced that it will be selling a substantial number of classic Ferraris from the Tony Shooshani collection. Consisting of eight special models, including an F40, F50 and Enzo, this outstanding selection of cars has been valued at more than $12m.
Shooshani is a well-known Beverly Hills-based Ferrari collector, with an exceptional garage of exotics – including a track-only 599XX EVO, one of only six Sergios as well as a LaFerrari, built to his own custom specification. Each of the Ferraris offered here is immaculately presented, and many have interesting back-stories.
The Ferrari F50 is a particularly special example, especially if you are a fan of interesting chassis numbers. This Classiche certified example was the last ever Ferrari to come with a five digit VIN, stamped as chassis 99999. Having been used for a lot of Ferrari’s promotional material, the car was then sold to Ferrari dealer Jacques Swaters. It has since covered just 1100miles, and is estimated to sell for $2,500,000-$2,900,000.
Up next is a fantastic-looking F40, which is a US-homologated model built in 1990. Offered with Ferrari Classiche certification and a mere 3600 miles on the clock it’s estimated to sell for $1,300,000-$1,600,000.
Completing the trio of supercar Ferraris is the 2003 Enzo, which is said to be ‘one of the best-ever offered for public auction’. With 2600 miles on the clock it’s yet another super-low mileage example, and is expected to fetch $2,400,000-$2,800,000.
There’s also a great selection of older classic models, including a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet ($2,000,000-$2,300,000), 1964 250 GT Lusso ($2,200,000-$2,500,000), 1969 Dino 206 GT ($700,000-$800,000), 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi ($400,000-$475,000), as well as the cheapest offering, a 1988 Ferrari 328 GTS ($125,000-$150,000).
David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company commented: ‘We are honored to have a part of one of the most esteemed Ferrari collections in North America from such an astute and refined collector. These three supercars within the Shooshani Collection perfectly illustrate the evolution of Ferrari’s engineering and lineage, with all eight Ferraris possessing a noteworthy individual history.’
