On August 3-7, Gooding & Company will hold its first-ever online auction and making the event all the more intriguing is the fact that the vehicles sold won’t need to be purchased outright. Instead, shoppers will be able to lease them.
The most valuable car set to be auctioned off during the event will be a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose with a $3.25 million valuation. Putnam Leasing will offer it with a $650,000 down payment as well as a fee of $33,095 per month for 60 months plus tax. The 275 GTB Long Nose in question is quite a unique example thanks to its color scheme of Bianco over beige leather.
Another vehicle at the auction will be a 2003 Ferrari Enzo. With a $2.6 million valuation, it will be available with a $520,000 down payment and $25,689 per month for 60 months plus tax.
Two other desirable Ferraris will be offered with leasing, namely a 1995 F50 and a 1992 F40. The F50 being sold is one of only 55 U.S.-spec examples built and will be available for $25,689 per month for 60 months plus tax and a $520,000 down payment, the same as the Enzo. As for the F40, it is one of just 213 U.S.-spec models and, due to its lower valuation, has a leasing deal of $14,459 per month for 60 months plus tax and a $300,000 down payment.
Other vehicles being auctioned off include a 1938 Bugatti Type 57 Cabriolet ($16,049/Month for 60 months plus tax and a $220,000 down payment), a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing ($13,650/Month for 60 months plus tax and a $280,000 down payment), and a 1971 Porsche 911 ST Rally ($12,049/Month for 60 months plus tax and a $250,000 down payment.)
As with all leases, customers will be able to adjust the monthly payments depending on the down payment and lease duration.
