Three stunning Ferraris have been added to the line-up of Gooding & Company's Pebble Beach sale.

First up is a remarkable find, a 1961 250 GT SWB California Spider with coachwork by Scaglietti. In addition to a well-documented history, the car comes complete with Ferrari Classiche 'Red Book' certification along with FIVA and ASI certification. 

Unlike many similar examples, chassis 3095 GT has remained unrestored and unseen at leading car shows, offering its new owner the pleasure of being the first to exhibit it. Offered at a public sale in the U.S for the first time since the 1960s, the car is expected to sell for $16-$18 million when it hits the auction block in California.

Next up is a rare 1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe, formerly owned by HRH Mohammad Shah Reza Pahlevi of Iran. Having passed to his wife Princess Soraya, née Soraya Esfandiari-Bakhtiari, in 1958, the car later made its way to the U.S and was awarded First in Class at the 1978 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Featuring coachwork by Pinin Farina, and finished in striking Metallic Grey, chassis 0717 SA has been fully-restored to its original glory and will be offered with an estimate of $5-$6 million. 

The final new addition to the Pebble Beach roster is a 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast, first unveiled at the 1964 Geneva Auto Salon and sold to a strictly limited clientele. Originally owned by Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, and formerly part of the famed Bardinon collection, the car has recently undergone a two-year, concourse-quality restoration and is estimated at $3-$4 million.

The Gooding & Company Pebble Beach sale takes place as part of the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California on August 15-16.
