Gooding & Company has announced that a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider Competizione will be available for auction at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August. The car is considered to be the most significant LWB California Spider ever built, so expect to see a very high price attached to this vehicle.
The California Spyder features a 508 D chassis, covered headlights, and the most powerful engine still fitted to a California Spider, a Tipo 168. These highlights are some of the main reasons this car has done so well in a number of events. It finished 5th overall at Sebring 12 Hours and has done well in the Bahamas Speed Week, many times with famous drivers including George Reed and Alan Connell behind the wheel.
The same auction will also feature a 1955 Maserati A6G/54 Berlinetta by Zagato, a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta SEFAC Hot Rod, and a 1971 Lamborghini Miura S that is being estimated at more than $600K. There will also be an auction by Mecum featuring a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Tour de France .
