Buyers spent a total of more than $116 million during the Annual Scottsdale Auction Week, with the priciest automobile, a rare 2006 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione, sold by auctioneer Gooding & Company for a cool $2,090,000.

The Ferrari FXX Evoluzione which sold at auction was one of only 30 ever made and previously belonged to supercar collector Benny Caiola, who passed away in April 2010. In fact, 11 of the cars owned by Caiola’s estate were up for auction last week in Scottsdale (all 11 by Gooding & Co.), including a 1999 Ferrari 333 SP (the last Le Mans Prototype Ferrari ever made), a McLaren Mercedes SLR Roadster, a 599 GTB Fiorano with the HGTE package, a Lamborghini Gillardo LP560-4, and a 2005 Maserati MC 12, in addition to the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione and several others. Gooding & Co. reports that the 11 cars sold for a collective $5,225,000.

The three biggest auctioneers at Scottsdale Auction Week are Barrett-Jackson, RM Auctions and Gooding & Co.  This year, Barrett-Jackson pulled in more than $66 million in sales, RM Auctions $30.6 million and Gooding & Co. — whose lots are historically, car for car, the most expensive — $34.98 million. With 121 lots sold by Gooding & Co. this year, that’s an average price of $289,000 paid per lot.
