Gooding & Company are set to auction an outstanding array of Ferraris from the Tony Shooshani Collection.

Spanning five decades, the collection features everything from iconic 250 GTs of the 1960s to powerful poster cars of the 1990s. Shooshani's close ties to Ferrari have allowed him to acquire several rare examples, and to restore his Ferrari Classique-certified cars to their original factory build specifications.

“We are honored to have a part of one of the most esteemed Ferrari collections in North America from such an astute and refined collector,” said David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company. “These three supercars within the Shooshani Collection perfectly illustrate the evolution of Ferrari’s engineering and lineage, with all eight Ferraris possessing a noteworthy individual history.”

Leading the collection is the first Ferrari F50 ever seen by the public, when it made its debut at the Geneva Auto Museum in March 1995. One of just 349 ever built, and regarded as the most historically important F50 in the world, the modern-day supercar is valued at $2.5-$2.9 million.

Another 1990s icon is a 1990 Ferrari F40, described as "one of the most sought-after supercars of its generation". This Ferrari Classiche-certified example is one of only 213 F40s delivered to the United States, and is offered with low mileage and an estimate of $1.3-$1.6 million.

The collection also features a trio of vintage Ferraris from the 1960s: a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet estimated at $2-$2.3 million, an award-winning 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso priced at $2.3-$2.5 million, and a highly original 1969 Ferrari Dino 206 GT valued at $700,000-$800,000.

Further highlights from the collection include a 2003 Ferrari Enzo estimated at $2.4-$2.8 million; a 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi formerly owned by legendary racer A.J. Foyt, valued at $400,000-$475,000; and a 1988 Ferrari 328 GTS estimated at $125,000-$150,000.

The Gooding & Company Scottsdale Sale takes place at Scottsdale Fashion Square on Friday January 29.
