This year in Scottsdale, Arizona, Barrett-Jackson was garnering as much attention as ever, selling off all manner of first-edition American muscle cars and Monster Garage monstrosities. But it was Gooding & Company that set the big records in its first year at Scottsdale, selling 64 cars for a total over $21 million. 90% went for more than their estimated values, and the average sale price was over $330k.

No fewer than seven cars sold for over $1 million each, including an Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 which brought $1.54 million, as well as a Packard Individual Custom Eight Convertible, a 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica and a Duesenberg Model J "Clear-Vision" Sedan.

The big news, however, was the yellow 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder. As we pointed out in preview of RM Auctions' upcoming event in Maranello, Ferrari only built 100 examples of the iconic 250 GT California Spyder – 50 long wheelbase and 50 short – making this a highly sought-after collector's item, and this example went for a staggering $3.3 million, setting the highest price paid at this year's Scottsdale auction-fest.
