Low-mileage supercars for sale – including 100-mile 918 Spyder!
Pagani, Porsche, McLaren, Lexus, Ferrari and Lamborghini to be offered by Gooding & Co at Scottsdale. How haven't they been driven more!
Gooding & Company is to offer a line-up of low-mileage supercars from Pagani, Porsche, McLaren, Lexus, Ferrari and Lamborghini at its annual two-day Scottsdale auctions in Arizona, USA on 19-20 January, 2018.
Incredibly, several of the cars in question have covered just a few hundred miles, adding to their value but begging the question of whether buyers will take advantage of the cars' near-unused condition or mothball them as perfect examples of their type.
It's interesting too that Gooding & Company is becoming the market expert in these nearly-new collector cars, gradually increasing the proportion of such cars in its sales over the last few years. For Scottsdale, still predominantly a muscle car arena, Gooding's offerings are likely to produce a stir – and strong prices. The supercars in the sale include the following:
2014 Pagani Huayra
This 2014 Pagani Huayra, powered by an AMG twin-turbo V-12 engine, can exceeed 230mph, and accelerate to 60mph in 2.8 seconds. It's number 87 of the 100 Huayras produced and is believed to be the only one in existence that was special-ordered in Carbonio Rosso, an exposed red carbonfibre body. It's covered fewer than 1000 miles and comes with original tools, manuals, and custom-order fitted luggage. It's estimated at $2,200,000-2,600,000.
2015 Porsche 918 Spyder
The Porsche 918 Spyder is capable of 214mph, a 0-60mph time of 2.6 seconds, produces 887bhp and 944lb ft of torque, but – thanks to its hybrid powertrain – can achieve 75mpg. It held the Nürburgring production car lap record for four years with a time of 6:57.00. Porsche made available just 918 examples, which sold out six months before the final car was built in June 2015. The car to be offered at Scottsdale is in a one-off colour scheme of Guards Red over a Garnet interior, highlighted by optional carbonfibre and Porsche 'special wishes' features. Incredibly, it has clocked up fewer than 100 miles since new, and comes with its original delivery accessories. Estimate for the Spyder is $1,800,000-2,200,000.
2015 McLaren P1
For its flagship P1, McLaren designed a new hybrid powertrain. Just 375 were built, and this bespoke example, finished in Special Carbon Black livery has travelled fewer than 1700 miles since new. Goodings estimate its sale price at $1,800,000-2,200,000.
2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package
The LFA is Lexus’ first supercar, capable of 202mph and a 0-60mph of 3.7 seconds. Just 500 were built, and this one is number 498. It's also one of only 50 examples equipped with the Nürburgring Package, a track-focused option that delivers an increase in engine power, a recalibrated transmission for quicker gearshifts, and a revised suspension. Its paint colour in officially named Whitest White and the interior is finished in red and white upholstery. It's covered fewer than 60 miles from new. Estimate on the LFA is $900,000-1,200,000.
Other supercars in the sale
- 2004 Porsche Carrera GT (estimate: $650,000-800,000), delivered new to actor and comedian Tim Allen, 2900 miles from new.
- 2009 Ferrari 599GTB Fiorano (estimate: $500,000-600,000) in rare manual-gearbox specification, with under 5000 miles from new.
- 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 650-4 Roadster (estimate: $375,000-450,000), the 49th of only 50 examples built, and fewer than 200 miles from new.
- 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia (estimate: $275,000-325,000), approximately 400 original miles from new, and thought to be the the lowest mileage example in existence.
'Each model represented here had a very limited production run and were sold out immediately after hitting the marketplace,' says David Gooding, president of Gooding & Company. 'What truly sets these particular examples apart from other elite supercars are the individually tailored, special-order features, limited mileage, and well-documented history.'
