Alongside the vintage Bentley we reported on just over a week ago, Gooding & Co. of Santa Monica, California will auction off several award-winning coachbuilt Ferraris. On August 20 & 21 2011, Pebble Beach will see a 1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe by Pinin Farina, a 1953 Ferrari 375 America by Vignale, a 1950 Ferrari 195 Inter by Touring, a 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Coupe Aerodinamica by Pininfarina and a 1955 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta by Pinin Farina hit the auction blocks.
The first car is the 1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe (Chassis No. 0715 SA), one of only eight Series II 410 Superamericas built. An estimate is available on request for this car, notable as one of very few 1950’s cars to break the 150mph barrier. This car was first presented at the 1957 Paris Motorshow.
A 1953 Ferrari 375 America (Chassis No. 0337 AL) is also up for grabs. Originally displayed at the 1953 Torino Motor Show, it has taken home a Platinum Award from the FCA Nationals, as well as prestigious Enzo Ferrari and Best in Class awards from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Its estimate is $2 million – $2.4 million.
The 1950 Ferrari 195 Inter (Chassis No. 0081 S) first saw its public debut at the 1951 Torino Motor Show. This was the first 195 Inter built and one of only three built with the same bodywork. Its estimate is $900,000 – $1.2 million.
The fourth car is the 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Coupe Aerodinamica (Chassis No. 5021 SA). This car was presented at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show by Pininfarina. Its estimate is $1.2 million – $1.5 million.
The final car is a 1955 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta (Chassis No. 0429 GT). Again, this car was displayed by Pininfarina, this time at the 1956 Geneva Motor Show. This is a pre-production model with Ferrari Classiche certification. Its estimate is $650,000 – $800,000.
