Today, we continue our coverage of the Scottsdale auctions, by highlighting three lots from the Gooding sale. One of our favourite cars in the sale is a stellar example of the Porsche 914/6 GT. Built for the 1970 season, this was the competition version of the all-new 914/6. Although based on the production car, it was substantially lightened and featured a pure racing engine that was lifted from the 906 prototype. With class wins at Le Mans and Daytona, it was quite successful but all its accomplishments were overshadowed by the outright wins of the 917 during the same period. The rare, factory-built 914/6 GT on offer is the actual car driven to a class win in the 1970 Daytona 24 Hours.
Based on the $3.2-3.6 million estimates, the Ferrari F50 consigned is the most valuable car in the sale. If the ex-Benny Caiola machine manages to sell for anything near the estimate, it proves a great investment as the current custodian acquired the car nearly a decade ago at the 2011 Gooding Scottsdale auction for a mere $812,000.
Offered from the same collection is this Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona. One of just 121 examples built, it was sold new to the United States and was also briefly owned by movie director Sydney Pollack. Following quite an adventure in Mexico, chassis 14779 joined the consignor's stable in 2011.
