Gooding & Company, the distinguished auction house for collector cars, realised more than $26.9 million at its annual Amelia Island sale in Florida last week.

The auction was led by the top selling 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, sold for $3.3 million, and the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet, which fetched just over $2 million.

Out of the 85 cars offered during the high profile auction, an impressive seven sold for values in excess of $1 million.

David Gooding, President and Founder of Gooding & Company, said: “Gooding & Company was proud to continue our established reputation of presenting rare, best of category cars, such as the impeccable 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, confirming Ferrari demand continues to dominate the market.

“Limited production sports and racing cars also performed extremely well, highlighting the widespread demand for modern collectibles that resonate with a new generation of collectors.”

Other notable highlights includes the sale of a 1974 Hector Rebaque-Café Mexicano 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR ($1.2 million) and the exclusive 1996 Porsche 993 GT2 ($973,500) – two highly limited production examples of the iconic Porsche 911 series.
