Gooding & Company also sold an $8 million Ferrari this weekend -- a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider was sold at its Scottsdale auction for $8,250,000.
Cars from Ferrari's 250 series tend to be a bit expensive nowadays -- in case you couldn't tell already -- like the Ferrari 250 GTO that sold for about $35 million last year.
As far as we can tell, these Ferrari roadsters were the two most-expensive cars sold at all the auctions that took place around the Valley this weekend.
