Gooding & Company Announces $212 Million in Total Sales in 2022

Gooding & Company Reflects on One of Its Most Successful Years to Date, Realizes over $212 Million in Sales across All Auctions


In 2022, the global auction house conducted its most successful Amelia Island Auction, presented its largest Pebble Beach catalogue to date, and concluded its second ever live auction in the UK.


International auction house Gooding & Company concludes its second most successful business year to date since its inception in 2003, posting an overall sales total surpassing $212 million realized from all 2022 auctions. With its most profitable Amelia Island Auction to date, its largest ever Pebble Beach Auctions offering, and its second live auction event in the UK, coupled with two Geared Online auctions, Gooding & Company sold a total of 597 lots, attaining an 87% sell-through rate for all vehicles auctioned, and an 89% sales rate for automobilia. The firm sold 55 cars valued over $1 million, signifying a staggering increase from the year prior. Additionally, the average price per car sold in 2022 was $695,375, a figure which also increased from the previous year.

Continuing its tradition of selling the most valuable cars at auction year after year, Gooding & Company sold three of 2022’s top automotive lots, led by the 1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C-SS Teardrop Coupe which achieved $13,425,000 at the firm’s record-setting Amelia Island Auction in March. Not only was the Talbot-Lago the most valuable car sold during the week, but it also set a new world record for all French automobiles ever sold at auction. Gooding & Company’s second top lot of the year was the elegant 1937 Bugatti 57SC Atalante, which sold for $10,345,000 as the star car of the Pebble Beach Auctions in August. Further, upon the firm’s return to the UK as the official auction sponsor and partner of the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court Palace, Gooding & Company sold its third top lot of the year, the 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione, for £7,762,500 at its London Auction in September. 

“We are incredibly pleased with our overall auction performance throughout 2022, as evidenced by metrics which indicate steady, targeted, and purposeful growth,” said Gooding & Company President and Founder, David Gooding. “By strategically tailoring our offerings for a select number of auction events throughout the year, we were able to witness unprecedented results, particularly at our Amelia Island, Pebble Beach, and London venues. The quality, historical significance, and rarity of the cars we bring to market provide a valuable hedge against greater economic fluctuations, and the prized collector vehicles featured on the Gooding & Company auction stage truly speak for themselves as they set records and reach new benchmarks with each passing year.”
