Italian Cars Protagonist at Gooding Pepple Beach Auctions
Fiat 8V Zagato in the top five
Gooding & Company announced five Italian consignments for its August 14th & 15th Pebble Beach Auctions 2010. Spanning two important decades of Italian automotive design, these include the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider Competizione, 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta SEFAC Hot Rod, Zagato-bodied 1954 Fiat 8V, 1955 Maserati A6G/54 Berlinetta with one-off coachwork by Zagato and a 1971 Lamborghini Miura S.
1954 Fiat 8V - Fiat unveiled its infamous 'Otto Vu' at the 1952 Geneva Motor Show. Its cutting-edge 2-litre V-8 engine technology and sophisticated lines soon led to the model’s lasting reputation as one of the most important Fiat sports cars ever built. One of 24 early examples, the 1954 Fiat 8V is an exciting and rare model sculpted by the prestigious carrozzeria Zagato. Intended for competition, this car was finished in Italian Racing Red livery with distinct features including the absence of air outlets and a thin aluminum strip on the hood scoop. With original engine and bodywork restoration completed by top European specialists, this two-time Mille Miglia participant is an ideal contender for today’s best rallies and tours. Gooding & Company estimates that this car will sell for $675,000–$750,000 at this year’s Pebble Beach Auction.
