    Part of the annual Arizona automobile auction week, the Gooding & Company Scottsdale Auction (www.goodingco.com) will take place January 20 and 21. As of mid-October, highlights of the sale included a rare 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV with a presale estimated value of $1.2 million to $1.4 million and a 1930 Duesenberg Model J Disappearing Top Convertible Coupe that could be worth $1.6 million to $2.2 million. The Miura is one of only 150 SV versions that Lamborghini produced. The Duesenberg contains nearly all of its original, matching-number parts (it left the factory with a standard engine but was later supercharged).
