Gooding & Company has signed on as a founding sponsor of the inaugural Audrain’s Newport Concours & Motor Week, a four-day multi-faceted event that takes place October 3-6, hosted by the Audrain Automobile Museum in Newport, Rhode Island.

As part of its presence at Newport, Gooding will display four collector cars available for private sale, which will be shown throughout the event at the Concours Village at the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

The cars are a 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Three-Position Drophead Coupe, 1972 Porsche 911 2.4 T Targa, 1973 Alpine A110 1600S and a 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera RS.

The high-end festival, which focuses on motorsport and driving history from the early days to the present, is chaired by comedian car guy Jay Leno, while the Sunday, October 6, concours d’elegance will be headed by well-known classic car expert and author Donald Osborne.  Among the shows, tours and gatherings is a concert by music superstar John Legend.

The rare and exceptional vintage and modern vehicles on display will include 12 cars from the General Motors Heritage Division, including such famed show cars as the 1938 Buick Y-Job, the 1954 Corsair Concept and the 2003 Cadillac Sixteen.
