When it comes to auctions during the Monterey car week, the best is saved for last. Held in conjunction with the Pebble Beach Concours, the auction house Gooding & Company offered up an incredible selection of cars on both Saturday and Sunday night. By the time the last lot had crossed the block, two cars had sold for over $4 million including a 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Drop Head Coupe that went for $4,180,000 and a 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider that commanded $5,115,000.
Seven other cars passed the seven figure mark, including a 1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Roadster ($3,000,000), a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider ($2,750,000), and a very unique 1938 Bugatti Type 57C Special Coupe ($1,375,00) previously owned by Ettore Bugatti himself. More details about the auction can be found in the press release after the jump, and you can view complete auction results on Gooding's web site.
