Artcurial took over the mantle of official Retromobile auction host in 2011 and after several years of success, made a giant splash in 2015 when they offered the Baillon collection of barnfinds boosting results into the $50+ million range. Since then they have offered the Bardinon family 335S which fetched a new record price and despite a weak 2017 they looked forward to offering the Bardinon families Le Mans winning 250P although court action saw that lot withdrawn and the top lot was a 250GT Cabriolet Series I that was priced well above market and its failure to sell hurt both the sales results and its overall lustre.

Artcurial have pulled out all the stops to make their 2019 sale one of their most impressive yet. Leading the way is a 1939 Alfa Romeo 8C2900B Touring Berlinetta, 1 of 43 2.9s ever made and one of just 5 Touring Berlinetta. The 2.9 was developed from the contemporary 8C/35 as a barely disguised Grand Prix car with fully independent suspension in time to win the 1935 Mille Miglia and by 1937 was available in very limited quantities for the finest of Italian coachbuilders to clothe for the very wealthiest of clients. Touring was the most common of coachbuilders and they produced six short wheelbase spiders, seven or eight long wheelbase spiders, five Mille Miglia Spiders and five long wheelbase Berlinetta.
Artcurials example is the second of the five Berlinetta and was supplied to an unknown destination, most likely Italy where it was owned by a Count Ciano before making its way to the UK where it ended up in Dennis de Ferranti and Lord Ridleys collections. Jan Martens purchased #412024 in 1976 and had it restored by Tony Merrick, perhaps the foremost expert in these cars and it is offered in good, original condition with a lovely patina some 43 years later. Touring Berlinetta 2.9s have won Pebble Beach twice in the past decade and its entirely possible that #412024 could be restored to that level and make it the third or the lucky buyer could just drive the thing but whatever option is chosen this is potentially the last chance to buy a Touring Berlinetta, the rest being in museum type collections
As such the €16 – 22 million ($18.2 – 25.1 mil) estimate seems absolutely market, if not a little low, especially compared to the $19.8 million the Sam Mann Touring long wheelbase Spider fetched at RM Monterey in 2016 which had neither the provenance nor the mechanical purity of this example. Perhaps more than anything that was sold at Scottsdale, this single lot will be a measure of the market and will certainly be a test for the markets taste for the very finest of collectors cars. As with many true marquee lots this cars sale will also be a testament to Artcurials ability to actually sell cars at this level and while they have gotten two cars sold for $15 million or more in the past four years, the success of the sale itself will depend on #412024 selling.
Aside from the lovely Alfa, Artcurials highlights are lead by three fine racing cars and four private collections, the best of the racing cars is the 1931 Bugatti Type 51, #51-128. #51-128 was the second Type 51 produced, certainly the ultimate development of the Type 51 Grand Prix car and originally supplied to Marcel Lehoux who used it to win the Geneva GP in ’31 among other top results, it next passed to Louis Trintignant who used it rarely, Maurice Trintignant who was very successful in it both pre and post WW2 and even an uncompleted 1940s engine swap which meant it was saved the ignominy of destruction in post war scrap drives. A conservation style restoration apart, this Type 51 is surprisingly original, whereas most are confused mixes of components from various Bugs, #51-128 is said to retain its original chassis, rear axle, gearbox, a genuine Type 51 transmission (from Trintignants other 51), part original engine (the rest from another Type 51) etc. As such the estimate of €4 – 4.5 million ($4.6 – 5.1 mil.) seems a touch strong compared to the last two Type 51 sales at around the $3.5 – 4 million mark but this is a very pure example with a very good race history and is most deserving of its star status and a great price.
The second of the great racing cars is a 1957 Porsche 550A, #550-0126, this being one of the very last of the approx. 130 examples built. Delivered to Guatemala and raced by Hubert Wiese in mainly local events, its star turn came when Wiese and Juhan were joined by Porsche race team chief von Hanstein to compete in the 1958 Buenos Aires 1000km in ’58, a round of the Sports Car World Championship where they finished 10th. This car is claimed to have returned to France by the early 1960s and was recently restored in Monaco with a new body and ex Freisinger Type 547/2 engine and transmission. Type 550 prices have leveled off some and this car will be the fifth offered in the past six months so there is plenty of supply but is there much demand. As with RMs example, this car has replacement bodywork, engine and transaxle and as such isn’t perfect and perhaps needs to be compared as Le Mans versus Buenos Aires? Monterey proved that 550As are around the $4.4 – 4.9 million mark, for good, pure examples, anything less than pure matching numbers should be down around the $3s, anyway Artcurial have estimated this 550 at €3.8 – 4.8 mil. ($4.3 – 5.5 mil.) and good luck to them.
The third great racing car is the 1953 Maserati A6GCS, #2053, this being one of the 30 or so Fiandri Barchettas that were highly successful in the 2 litre series then popular in Europe. This example was supplied via Ducati Motors to Donald McKnought in the USA and he entered it for Sebring in ’54 where he and Eager retired. After a fairly rough life that included the ubiquitous Chev V8 replacement and racing through the 1960s, the car was finally saved by Frank Mandrano who purchased a new Italian built replica engine and a A6G production transmission and restored the car. After three further restorations, #2053 was offered twice in the early 2010s and both times failed to sell at the $2 million ask with most commentators noting the lack of original engine, even though original engine #2067 had been fitted during one of the three restorations. Now offered by Artcurial at a much higher estimate of €3.75 – 4.275 mil. ($4.3 – 5.1 mil.) it must be said that market for these lovely little racers is easily $5 – 10 mil. depending on race history but whatever Artcurials claims that engine replacements are typical, I don’t see bidder sentiment changing and perhaps $3 – 4 million would be the go to number. Good luck to Artcurial with this one.
The Palace revolt was one of the most extraordinary events in corporate history, Ferrari losing their design, production and management heads as well as Phil Hills driving skills due to Mrs. Ferrari’s meddling. Count Volpi was one of Ferrari’s best clients and in 1961/2 purchased multiple Testa Rossa’s and racing GTs as well as Maserati’s and Porsches although he harboured ambitions to becoming a racing his own cars and established A.T.S. with Carlo Chiti as chief engineer and Phil Hill in the drivers seat. While the Formula 1 car took little time to hit the track, the sportscar took forever and it soon became clear that even the Counts fortune was not enough to compete with Ferrari and with little success in F1, even less with the sportscars and roadcar production taking an age the A.T.S. experiment petered out. That said the sportscar essentially foresaw the Ferrari 250LM although it beat that car to production by some months becoming the first mid engined “production” car ever produced.
While the A.T.S. was a dead end, Count Volpi continued to build the occasional car, especially for the Turin Show although all of them were pretty much unique and production never resumed in any significant way and apart from one 308V Coupe, none were ever sold. Artcurial are offering three Serenissima, two are merely interesting show cars, the Ghia GT Coupe and Agena GT but its the first that is a true star, the 1966 Spider. The only survivor of 2 Spiders built on the 308V platform, this car was raced at Le Mans in 1966 although it retired without any great result and returned to Count Volpi where it was used for some time before being stored. Looking something like a Targa Ferrari 250LM and featuring a highly advanced engine and transmission, this car like the other two is in totally original condition and while it isn’t a big name Italian car, perhaps that makes it more desirable if not as valuable. The €1.3 – 1.8 mil. ($1.48 – 2.05 mil.) estimate for this car seems entirely reasonable although its while the Ghia GT and Agena are sensibly valued at €400 – €600k ($456 – 684k).
The second collection on offer at Artcurial is the “Grey Collection” which consists of a Ferrari 275GTC, 250GT Lusso and Aston Martin DB4 Series IV SS. The first noted is one of three 275s which were built and supposedly fitted with some competition features although they otherwise remained stock standard steel bodied roadcars and were stamped GTC although there is some contention, Marcel Massini stating that they are nothing more than misstamped 275GTBs. #08465 was sold to France and owned by Michel Barthe until the current vendor purchased it, had it mechanically restored by Charles Pozzi and fitted six Weber 40s, a roll bar and other upgrades. The vendor also had Lecoq repaint the car in Grigio Ferro and apparently had it certified by Ferrari Classiche, whether or not the GTC moniker means diddly squat is unknown but the estimate of €2.3 – 2.6 mil.. ($2.6 – 2.96 mil.) is market correct for a condition 2 275GTB.
The other two cars are a Grigio Ferro Lusso that once lost its body after being stolen but was restored by Dino Ravani in Italy and Salvetti with a new engine block. While in excellent condition, this cars €900k – 1.3 mil. ($1.026 – 1.482 mil.) estimate is very low even for the depressed Lusso market but in line with a car that lacks many of its original components. Finally one of the rare DB4 SS is on offer, just 17 of these having been built with the 266bhp engine, noted to have been restored by Lecoq at some point. These cars are rare and one example surprised at Bonhams last year to sell for $1.3 million so the €900k – 1,1 mil. ($1.02 – 1.25 mil.) estimate is strong but if the car is condition 2 or better, market correct, otherwise its overpriced.
The third collection is August Thomassens three barnfind Bugatti’s. The first is a Type 40 that was partially rebuilt as a Grand Sport Roadster but never completed when it was put away in storage. As a project Bugatti 40 that wouldn’t take much to complete the €100 – 130k ($114 – 148k) estimate is bang on market. The second car is the one that is getting lots of publicity, the 1937 Bugatti Type 57 Graber Cabriolet, #57-500, with lovely Graber coachwork, this car has had just three owners, the last of whom stored it until its reveal in late 2018 and it remains in totally original condition. As with all Type 57s the value is dependent on the coachwork and this cars might not be the most glamorous or sporty but it will make a lovely concours and tour car once finished and the €400 – 600k ($456 – 694k) estimate seems reasonable indeed, it won’t surprise if it sells for much more than that. The third car is the 1932 Bugatti Type 49 Vanvooren Saloon estimated at €150 – 200k ($171 – 228k) which is a rather boring but highly usable Saloon on the trusty Type 49 platform, almost certainly market priced.
The final collection is the Marrel families car collection, mainly Voisin’s. These are by order of the French Ministry of Culture NOT allowed to leave France. Highlights are:
- 1929 Voisin C16 Hétérozygote” Ottin bodywork – Est. €90 – €130k ($103 – 148k), A rather staid saloon with some luxurious touches, market priced.
- 1928 Voisin C11 Cabriolet “Blue Waltz” body Simon Pralavorio – Est. €90 – 130k ($103 – 148k), a charming Cabriolet and again market priced.
- 1926 Voisin C3 The “Queen Mary” body Simon Pralavorio – Est. €70 – 100k ($80 – 114k). A rather sedate saloon with some class. Market priced.
- 1928 Voisin C11 “Jewel” Achard and Fontanel – Est. €60 – 90k ($68 – 103k). A standard saloon in partially restored condition, Market priced.
- 1929 Hispano-Suiza H6B Billeter and Cartier Cabriolet – Est. €150 – 200k ($171 – 228k). Fitted with a highly usable Transformable body by Billeter and Cartier, this is a majestic Hispano. Market correct.
- 1922 Voisin C3 Queen Alexandra – Est. €70 – 100k ($80 – 114k). A very early Voisin with a staid Saloon body, market correct.
- 1936 Panhard Dynamic X77 – Est. €50 – 80k ($57 – 91k). A full art deco Panhard in well preserved original condition. Possibly a bit above market for a Panhard.
Pre war highlights are:
- 1926 Hispano-Suiza H6B Million Guiet Double Phaeton – Est. €450 – 550k ($513 – 627k). A gorgeous Million-Guiet Double Phaeton that was delivered to Argentina where it remained in the same family for five decades, restored at a cost of $500k between ’02 and ’12. Estimate is probably a touch too steep but still close to market correct.
- 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C1750GS Corsica Spider – Est. €900k – 1.4 mil. ($1.026 – 1.596 mil.), An original James Young DHC, raced in the UK, later fitted with Corsica coachwork pre ’50s, very well maintained with one owner since ’53, now on the patinated side of perfect but could be left in the current condition without worry. A great looking classic Alfa. With Zagato Spiders fetching between $2 – 4 mil depending on originality, this car may be a bit of a mishmash but it has its own history and is a comparative bargain.
- 1932 Voisin C14 – Est. €275 – 325k ($313 – 370k). A proper glamorous Voisin with Saloon coachwork, a remarkable original example. Market correct for the type.
- 1936 Mercedes-Benz 500K Cabriolet B – Est. €600 – 800k ($684 – 912k), A lovely big Mercedes with the elegant Cabriolet B coachwork, later owned by Donald Healey and others incl. Rolf Wagner. Mechanically restored by Reifen-Wagner, market correct pricing.
- 1936 Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic Rep. by Eric Koux – Est. €800k – 1.2 mil. ($912k – 1.368 mil.), 1 of a small series of Eric Koux produced Atlantic Replica, this one made for Hans Matti, restored rebuilt by Laurent Rondoni with original Type 57 parts on a new chassis, rarely used. Yes its an Atlantic but it is still a replica and as such, while the original is worth $60 – 70 million, this one is likely overpriced at around the million euro mark. It will be a true surprise if this tops 500 – 600k.
- 1937 Peugeot 402 Darl’mat Sport Roadster – Est. €300 – 400k ($342 – 456k), An unknown Darl’mat with gorgeous coachwork. Restored by Lecoq pre 1991, set up for racing and used at the Le Mans Classic. Likely market correct pricing but some certainty on provenance and originality of components needs clarification.
- 1938 Bugatti Type 57C Gangloff Cabriolet – Est. €800k – 1.2 mil. ($912k – 1.368 mil.) A beautiful example of a very fine supercharged cabriolet with glamorously sporty coachwork. Noted to have been restored 20+ years ago, this price is market for a car with coachwork such as this.
Mid century highlights include:
- 1947 Alfa Romeo 6C2500 Sport Touring Berlinetta – Est. €275 – 325k ($313 – 370k). A large and elegant Touring bodied 6C2500 Sport in charmingly original condition. Ideal for any event incl. the Mille Miglia, expensive though it is for a post war 6C2500 Sport.
- 1947 Alfa Romeo 6C2500SS Pininfarina Cabriolet – Est. €500 – 700k ($570 – 798k), supplied to Juhan Jaroslav in Czechoslovakia, later to USA and finally Europe, quite glamorous, ideal for anything and a more sporty platform than the Sport, restored to concours standard and market correct pricing although what harm the non matching engine will do to the value is hard to assess, perhaps a hundred k too expensive.
- 1949 Alfa Romeo 6C Plate Special – Est. €400 – 500k ($456 – 570k), A unique car built to a design by Plate and powered by a Alfa 6C2300GT engine. Fairly modern design despite its basis being a 1937 plan to build a modern racing car. Raced in Italy before export to the USA and later to the Murphy collection where it was restored over two decades. Sold via Bonhams in 2016 for $291k, this car hasn’t altered any so its not likely to be worth any more, seems at least 100k too expensive.
- 1953 Porsche 356 Pre A 1500 Cabriolet – Est. €230 – 270k ($262 – 308k), early Pre A Porsches are hot, hot, hot and prices of up to a million US$ have been seen, restored in the USA and Australia in good colours, it remains that Pre As are not powerful and not especially modern. Seems a little expensive.
- 1954 Panhard X86 Dolomites Pichon Parat – Est. €100 – 130k ($114 – 148k), a delightful little racer that competed in the ’54 Tour de France and later had some success in various rallies. Lightly modified and no doubt unique, this is a fun little car that will get invited to most events. Likely market correct.
- 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300S Cabriolet – Est. €380 – 430k ($433 – 490k), A US delivered Cabriolet, the elegant, more luxurious brethren of the Gullwing. Restored many years ago and still showing well. Market correct.
- 1958 Talbot Lago T14 Barquette America – Est. €140 – 180k ($160 – 205k), A rare BMW powered Talbot-Lago that was never completed and remained a rolling chaassis until the 1980s when the current Le Mans style coachwork was fitted, finished in 00s and just 3,000km from new. Hard to price but probably market for a fantasy car.
- 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster – Est. €1.1 – 1.3 mil. ($1.25 – 1.48 mil.), A very typical Roadster but for the second owner rallying it widely with some success at an International level. Restored in 2016 this car lacks for nothing and must be one of the best. As such the slightly strong estimate is not unreasonably high. In fact this car could even go higher and is one of my favourite cars of the sale.
- 1959 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark III Coupe – Est. €120 – 180k ($137 – 205k), A lovely RHD Coupe in great colours, restored decades ago and now showing a pleasant patina, this car is what an Aston should be and market priced.
- 1960 Maserati 3500GT Vignale Spider – Est. €600 – 700k ($684 – 798k), A US delivered Spider, fitted with a ZF 5 speed manual in the 1980s when restored in Red and Silver over Black. Four years ago these were hitting a million US$ and have since fallen back to these levels. Market correct if condition 3+ or better.
- 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster – Est. €170 – 230k ($194 – 262k), a US delivery like most E-Types, restored 5 years ago to exceptional condition. Market correct.
- 1963 Citroen ID19 Palm Beach Cabriolet – Est. €230 – 330k ($262 – 376k), 1 of just 32 examples, among the most stylish of the Chapron specials. Restored in the late 1990s. Very reasonably priced.
- 1963 Jaguar Mark II Tour de France – Est. €270 – 360k ($308 – 410k), A bog standard Mark II that was competition prepared for rallying and went on to win its class at the ’63 Tour de France with Bernard Consten at the wheel. Very well maintained and ideal for racing and rallying. Expensive for a Mark II but possibly market correct for a true historic racing car, otherwise expensive.
- 1970 Maserati Ghibli SS – Est. €160 – 220k ($182 – 251k), fitted with the 335bhp 4.9 litre engine. Restored recently and well maintained since, a rare and highly collectible example. Market correct.
- 1971 Porsche 916 Prototype Brutus – Est. €800k – 1.2 mil. ($912k – 1.368 mil.), A true Porsche Prototype for a car that was stillborn, 1 of 11 built with a 300bhp full competition spec engine. Full trick suspension. Restored by Drew Slaton and in concours winning condition. Impossible to price but likely a little on the expensive side for a car without race history, even if it is one of the coolest cars in the sale.
- 1973 Alpine A110 1800 Group 4 – Est. €300 – 500k ($342 – 570k), 1 of 5 works rally cars, ex. Monte Carlo Rally wjere it finished 2nd, winner of the Portuguese rally etc., later restored with a new body although original is included in sale. Market correct.
- 1974 Ferrari 365GT4/BB – Est. €250 – 320k ($285 – 365k), the 23rd example built, restored throughout since ’05, 2000km since. Estimate seems pretty low and this could be a real buy.
- 1974 Lamborghini Countach LP400 Periscopo – Est. €900k – 1.1 mil. ($1.026 – 1.25 mil.), the 15th Countach produced and unique in Silver over Tobacco leather. Delivered to Walter Wolf, freshly restored and totally correct. Market priced.
Modern highlights are:
- 1984 BMW 635CSi Group A – Est. €250 – 350k ($285 – 399k), A proper works prepared Group A car, raced in the ’85 and ’86 ETCC, restored since and fully compliant with current FIA regs. Market correct.
- 1993 Jaguar XJ220 – Est. €350 – 550k ($399 – 627k), the 42nd XJ220, delivered to France and presented in original condition with 1,248km from new. Overhauled by Don Law in ’16 at great cost. These were worth half the estimated value until recently and yet this estimate is now market correct, at the low estimate.
- 2006 Porsche Carrera GT – Est. €750 – 850k ($855 – 969k), Mileage is key with these cars and this estimate is market correct for any example with delivery mileage but expensive for the stated 2,000km from new.
- 2008 Ferrari 599GTB – Est. €300 – 400k ($342 – 456k), A stock standard, high mileage 599GTB only special because of a manual transmission. Freshly serviced. Even with the 6 speed manual, this seems like a lot of money.
- 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren ‘Stirling Moss’ – Est. €2.25 – 2.5 mil. ($2.56 – 2.85 mil.), the ultimate SLR, still crazy expensive despite the limited production. Market correct.
- 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake – Est. €800k – 1 mil. ($912k – 1.14 mil.), 1 of 99 shooting brakes. As new and difficult to value although standard Coupes are now closer to $800k than 1 mil. so perhaps $100k too expensive.
Affordable collectible highlights are:
- 1938 Fiat 2800 Pininfarina Limousine – Est. €20 – 50k ($23 – 57k), A fairly staid Fiat but still a glamorous car and offered ex Amedee Gordini and Schlumpf collections in totally original condition. Both market correct and cheap.
- 1969 Peugeot 504 Cabriolet – Est. €25 – 35k ($28 – 39k). Few post war Peugeots are rare and this is no exception, the first example produced and quite a cool little car. Market correct.
- 1961 Lamborghini Ercole Tracked Tractor – Est. €30 – 40k ($34 – 46k), A rather agricultural Lambo but plenty cool. Market priced.
- 1994 Mercedes-Benz 500E Limited – Est. €40 – 60k ($46 – 68k), 1 of just 500 made and ex Philippines, Japan, UK and Germany, market priced if not a little cheap.
- 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 – Est. €45 – 65k ($51 – 74k), highly original example in good condition. Market correct.
- 1971 Citroen SM – Est. €50 – 80k ($57 – 91k), a properly restored SM in cool colours. Market correct.
- 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 – Est. €50 – 80k ($57 – 91k), built by Reiter Engineering and raced in Asia, needs renewal of FIA approval. Market correct for a track toy.
- 1993 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 1 – Est. €55 – 85k ($63 – 97k), an excellent example of one of these road rockets. Seems a little cheap, some have sold for double this amount.
- 1991 Alfa Romeo SZ Coupe – Est. €65 – 85k ($74 – 97k), 1 of 1000 produced, highly sporty car in good condition, a future classic per chance. Market priced.
A great sale full of really fascinating collectors cars. While the relative merits of the sale will depend on the sale of the Alfa Romeo 2.9, it really is one to watch.
Artcurial returned to Paris for Retromobile with a stunning collection of collectors cars headed by one of five Alfa 8C 2.9 Touring Berlinetta and once again ruled the pack with a $44.668 million total gross. While that is certainly a fantastic result and took plenty of heavy lifting, it must be remembered that it is still well off the $53 and 61 million they grossed in 2015 and 2016 while the sell through was a very poor 68%. Also startling was the fact the 8C2.9, one of the best examples of the breed, fetched just €16.7 mil. ($19 million) and question whether a Monterey sale with Gooding or RM wouldn’t have seen the car fetch another few million.
Beyond the Alfa it was a mixed bag with poor results outweighing the good although leading the good was the stunning Serenissima which fetched a staggering €4.218 mil. ($4.8 mil.) or 134% over its estimate although that could be arguably still a good buy, it was truly that great a car. Other good results were the McLaren SLR Stirling Moss at €2.617 mil. ($2.98 mil), Alfa 6C1750GS Corsica at €977k ($1.113 mil.), Porsche 916 Brutus at €928k ($1.057 mil.), while the top seller was the Bugatti Type 40 project at €191k ($217k), fully 40% over estimate.
Poor sellers were topped by the Voisins which couldn’t be sold outside of France, surely a limiting marketing USP but included the Bugatti Type 57C Gangloff at €695k ($793k), Bugatti Type 51, 1957 Porsche 550A and 1953 Maserati A6GCS at €3.28 ($3.74 mil.), 2019 Aston Martin Zagato at an unknown amount, 1966 Ferrari 275GTC at €1.87 mil. ($2.15 mil.). All except perhaps the Ferrari were surely enough to get the sale completed and even if not should have been the basis for a negotiated sale but no and collectively were enough to stop the sale being one of the most successful ever.

The car was sold at Bruno Vendiesse’s, who then provided him with the radiator and grid. Leon Easter gives him an Alvis 12/70 engine. The chassis was then transported to the Ruphil garage, where the Rucheton siblings set to work, modifying, adapting, shortening and welding in order to bring the Special to life.

Built during the Second World War, the Fiat 2800 was an automobile possessing great quality and pageantry, with some models having their bodywork done in Landaulet. 624 units were produced from 1938 following Benito Mussolini’s request, who wanted a ceremonial car in order to compete against the big Mercedes of this German ally. These automobiles were ordered by kings, government leaders and other politicians.

At the beginning of 1948, he bought it from the French administration with the Lancia lorry which he will then transform into order to transport the Gordini racing cars. Its first registration was 1634-RM1 and was later changed to 9877DU75, which is still on the car. Gordini then sold to Fritz Schlumpf on 7 February 1969 for 1,000 French Francs.

The enthusiast will be able to choose between being able to do so or not.It is rare to find a Fiat 2800 on the market nowadays, not to mention the fact that this particular one has been Amedee Gordini’s personal car!

20 1939 Alfa Romeo 8C2900B Touring Berlinetta 412024 €16,000,000 €22,000,000 €16,745,600 $19,079,937 Mid Rosso over Nero leather. RHD. 1 of 5 produced. Unknown pre Count Ciano ’39, via Jack Bartlett, retained by Bartlett, Dennis de Ferranti, Ireland ’49, Lord Ridley, UK ’51, Nigel Mann, Jan Martens, Netherlands ’76, restored by Tony Merrick ’76. The black leather interior is also good, original condition, shiny and patinated. The masts have been changed to some extent during their lifetime but have not been dismantled. By dismantled, I mean separating the body from the body for restoration. It is a question that has been regularly looked after. Over the past 43 years, Jan Willem has accumulated a large number of spare parts for the 8C. In the mid-1980s, he decided to have the engine rebuilt. He gave this job to Tony Merrick, the best 2.9-liter specialist at that time. Worn over time, two cylinder heads and pistons were changed. Jan Willem sourced replacements from David Black, the great Alfa collector. Of course, all the original parts are kept and will be available for the new owner. The black leather was re-done at the end of the 1970s, when Lord Ridlett owned the car. It was then beige suede leather. During the test drive, the conversation revolved around the 2.9-liter. Jan Willem told me that he had used it every day for two years, at the start of the 1980s! And then, when we went back and forth, he went to find the original aluminum running boards, and then they would have been left when the factory left. He looked at me and said, with an expression full of emotion: “This is what makes the car so special, do not you think it complements its elegance beautifully?” Jan Willem Martens’ father was an avid collector of automobiles and sailing boats, who owned many Talbots and Bugatti. He had a discerning eye, and always preferred models that were un-restored and original. His philosophy was that a restoration was irreversible and caused the object’s soul and the original intentions of its creator to disappear. His son, Jan Willem, inherited this way of thinking. It is for this reason that its Alfa Romeo has been kept in the original, as original, as possible, in order not to alter the brand’s spirit. In short, you have understood, this Alfa Romeo 8C 2.9-liter has been treated, loved and loved all its life, having passed through the hands of owners who have taken great care of it. Jan Willem told me he is a passing watch on the baton, and is a simple custodian for this work of art. He would have loved to be a collector, who, in his turn, would continue its history. That way, it could be preserved for future generations, a century to date, which is one of the most revolutionary inventions of mankind: the Automobile.

Meticulous and passionate about his car, he worked tirelessly to improve it and make it more reliable. For reasons of personal taste, he also modified the design of the front wings. Farquhar clearly drew on his engineering skills to maintain that he knew inside out. This was undoubtedly why he was confident in his long contract with his wife, setting off without hesitation from Sweden and traveling to Rotterdam, Paris and Geneva. he actually came to the US in 1960 and back to Sweden in 1964. The Alfa Romeo on a boat in the Norwegian fjords, in front of the Royal Palace at The Hague, and the Château de Chantilly in France, as well as their tent camping. Some are in black and white, others in faded color and there are pictures taken during the 1970’s Farquhar’s two children squeezed into the rear spider. He was discreet in his career and only took part in meetings in Sweden. In May 1999, it did, however, feature on the cover of Klöverbladet, the Swedish Alfa Romeo Club magazine. It is a car full of charm, displaying its colorful past with pride, having never been restored and still well maintained. This automobile has lived life and is now looking for a new owner to appreciate this. Norman Farquhar died in 2013 and it is his family who are parting with the car, hoping that someone as passionate as he will take it on. Being rare, in remarkably original condition, complete with its original engine and a special history, this Alfa Romeo 1750 GS must be one of the most exceptional examples of its type. It offers an opportunity that rarely arises in the life of a collector.

It was decided not to straighten the frame as it was possible to replace the body. Defending the bow of the springs, diagonally, so that the car was balanced on the four wheels. The hollow front axle was not damaged. The steel bulkhead was out of shape, as if it had been crushed, to such an extent that it was not longer than that. There were small pieces of wood used to wedge the axle into position. The 1500 engine had lost the upper crankcase, and a wooden model, made by Pierre Dellieres replaced the missing piece. Through the assistance of Geoffrey Saint John, Lefranc had an upper crankcase of England, complete with crankshaft and pistons. During the reassembly, it was discovered that the 1500cc crankshaft had the number of 51128. According to Marc Defour, this engine part of Trintignant’s because. Maurice admitted to having a slow bugattist the crankcase and the shaft that was in 51128 at the time it was in the 1500cc configuration; and these shares were never returned to him. It is worth noting that an old box, probably the pre-war factory replacement, stamped 51128, was then fitted. The engine work by Defour allowed the original crankshaft and pistons, with the correct dimentions, to be kept. He installed new piston rings and pins, and had to remachine the bearing of the shaft case. The ignition set-up was the same for the 2.3 liter. Christian Pellerin (6), via Poulain le Fur to Jean-Claude Miloé (7). It has been maintained by the Novo garage.

The 1500cc engine block with cylinders and cylinders heads, with pistons, valves and parts previously fitted in this block. – The original small 1500cc supercharger (number 14) which was from 51157 – In a case is the original crankshaft ex-51157, number 31, which was fitted to 51128 when Maurice Trintignant raced in the 1500cc class with 51128 – The Cotal gearbox fitted in 1938 which was kept alive by Lefranc when he had the car restored. – The gearbox cap in the car before the adaptation of an electric starter. – A pair of lights, the car being electrically equiped for this use. In 1993, the excellent Michel Magnin refurbished the engine and a 2.3 liter crankshaft was installed, thus adding greater originality to 51128. It should be pointed out that almost 90 years after it left the factory, 51128 is presented in a remarkably authentic condition: The chassis frame number 705, the rear axle and other parts belong to the car from new. The coachwork is also in original condition, and conforms to the configuration of the Louis Trintignant’s car in photos taken at Peronne in 1933. The following are the components of the gearbox, strut suspension, cambox and pinion mounting at the front of the engine. original Bugatti parts. The continuous history of 51128, and the significant lot of spare parts, illustrating its glorious past, are a part of the race.

In 2005, a major service was carried out at 81,000km (50,300 miles) when the exhaust was completely overhauled. We made a road test of the car. The engine fired up immediately and ran perfectly. The car handled faultlessly, its suspension and running gear outstanding outstanding roadholding. This is a very fine example of the model, with the most beautiful paint finishes and the most attractive paintwork in British Racing Green, one of the most sought-after colors. It is inside the car, however, that the Aston’s ambiance can be fully appreciated. During its restoration – for which the photos are available on the file – the owner fortunately kept the original red leather interior, which has been taken on a marvelous patina. As you open the rear hatch, you will find two tailor-made leather suitcases, which are also beautifully patinated. It is just one of the first and last versions of the first DB. via Bonhams Paris ’10 $170k

Once completed, the car was delivered on June 15, 1949 at the Delage / Delahaye dealership on Franklin Roosevelt Avenue, in Paris. With the body number 3046, it was delivered in a gray-blue livery with gray upholstery, and equipped with a 3.5L 6S-103 engine, aspirated with three carburetors.

49 1949 Alfa Romeo 6C Plate Special P-002 €400,000 €500,000 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso over Nero. Marked with chassis number P-002, the ‘Alfa Romeo’ 6C Platé Special was built between 1948-49. Powered by a 1934 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 GT engine, breathing through 3 Side draft Weber carbs, seated in a chassis made to Platés design, in which oil flows through the chassis tubes, using a dry sump system with an oil reservoir in the rear. The chassis was designed with an interestingly engineered semi independent torsion bar suspension, using a modified front axle and rear differential from a 1934 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300. The chassis also utilized the patented Platé 360 degree brake shoe design in hydraulic form. These 3 major implementations of Platés ideas, the tube chassis flowing oil or coolant, torsion bar independent suspension, and the 360 degree brake design, were first mentioned in a letter written by Plate’ to Sig. G. Canestrini in October of 1937, where he states these ideas have been patented and implemented in a car he has built using a highly a modified Talbot 8C 1500 supercharged engine, covered in trapezoidal shaped body work. On September 16, 1948, a certificate of origin for chassis P-002 was issued. Just over 6 months later on March 28, 1949 the sale of P-002 to Luigi Platé was recorded, and nearly 7 months more had passed before P-002 was issued its first registration certificate with the Milan plate number MI136938. On July 22, 1951, P-002 was entered as #58 in the Susa-Moncenisio race, driven by Paolo Soprani. The result was a DNF, but there is a photo showing P-002 on the roadside during this race. On June 6, 1959 P-002 was sold to Nicholas Piccione of Brooklyn, NY. Piccione was issued insurance on June 18, 1959 at a cost of 34,000 Lire. According to a shipping document dated October 28, 1959, P-002 was scheduled to be shipped to Brooklyn, NY aboard the m/s Saturnia. The shipping document lists the car as an “Alfa Romeo Plate’ 2500, Chassis 002, Engine number 700174, and a weight of 1170 Kg. with a value of $480. It would appear that Mr. Piccione enjoyed a few months of driving time in Italy, before sending P-002 home to Brooklyn. On May 7, 1984, Mr. John Murphy purchased P-002 from “Wheels of Time” in Florida, whom had acquired P-002 from an estate sale in Atlanta, Ga. Mr. Murphy’s passion for Alfa Romeos had begun in the early 1980s, with the purchase of GTV-6 Balocco edition. You could say this was the start of what would become an exeptional collection of Alfa Romeo sports and racing cars, known as “Alfa Legends”. With the advisement of Paul Spruell, John and his wife Betty began collecting special examples; 5 GTA’s, a GTAM, a Guilietta Van once used as an Alfa U.S. factory service vehicle, a Tipo 33 Spider, 2 Montreals, a 2600SZ, a Sprint Speciale, and others. He carefully managed the restoration of his very special yellow TZ in preparation for its debut at the 1994 Pebble Beach Concours de Elegance, where it won its class, a very happy day for John, yet it seemed his greatest enjoyment came from sharing the honors with his wife Betty. Mr. Murphy purchased P-002 identifying it as something rare and special, subsequently enlisting the help of many Alfa Romeo experts to research the history of P-002, in order to proceed with a proper restoration. November of 1990 would be the start of over two decades worth of restoration work on P-002, with chassis and bodywork being performed by, Kleeves Co. of Kimball, Mi., and engine work beginning at R.A. Engel Co. of Goodells, Mi. It was deemed that the old aluminum bodywork was too fragile to restore, so a new one was constructed to match, but the old pieces were kept and remain with the car. In 2000, restoration work proceeded at Laidlaw Restorations of Angels Camp, Ca. In 2007, Symbolic Motor Cars continued the restoration, finishing in time for entry into the world-renowned 2011 Pebble Concours d’ Elegance, receiving its green ribbon for completing the Thursday morning driving tour. In 2004, P-002 was awarded 1st in class at the La Jolla Concours. P-002 has since continued its tour of prominent show fields, and was most recently shown at the 2015 Amelia Island Concours, where it was equally well received and enjoyed by the crowds, and completed the Eight Flags Road Tour. There has been much speculation as to the history of P-002 and its origins, and it is believed by some enthusiast that P-002 may actually be a lost Alfa “Corse” or ” Ala Spessa”, from the pre war era, bodied with a new look post war by Plate’. PROVA 1 is stamped on an inner fender, while 002 can be found stamped in other places on the frame and body structures. Steve Garland, who was involved early in the restoration process, states that the chassis appears to have been used with a different body previous to the current one, and remnants of the pre war 6C2300 cable brake system were left in place, including the rear cables tied up around the frame work. P-002 is offered with a large history file containing a significant amount of research carried out by noted Italian car expert, John de Boer. Included in the file are many lovely archival photos of this car, as well as ample history on Mr. Platé and Alfa Romeo’s of the era. This fascinating Italian sports car would be a great addition to any collection of pre or post war automobiles, and surely an easy invite to top collector car events around the globe. via Bonhams Quail ’16 $291k.

First registered in 1939, it was 69 in August 1953, while to form license plate mentions to Mr. Limbach in Lyon. Period photographs confirm the car’s specification at this time. The car was then bought in 1973 by an enthusiast from the Saône et Loire department and underwent its first refurbishment, at which time the long-range driving lights integrated into the front wings were removed and its light-colored paintwork replaced by a dark green finish . The car was then registered 8864 QN 71, the number with which it appears in Olivier de Serres’ book devoted to the Traction Avant. We have received confirmation that it is already fitted with 4-speed gearbox and inlet manifold with twin carburetors which it retains today. The current owner’s husband bought the car in 1979; it has remained since then in the same family and has completed restoration has just been completed. The bodywork was fully restored by Prestige Auto and a file of photographs confirming the quality of the work carried out. The engine was reconditioned and the 4-speed gearbox overhauled. The running gear has also been restored and replaced. The upholstery, carpets and hoods received the same attention. The care taken with this restoration shows off to the best possible effect which is much bigger than the bodies fitted to the wide-bodied 11 Large models. Only three Convertible Clabot have been identified today, of which this is the only one based on an 11 Lightweight. This is so an exceptional car, whether in terms of its rarity, the quality of its construction or its known, documented history. It’s truly a collector’s item!

Originally conceived as a small, light and efficient roadster, the Dyna Junior was designed to be “a young car within the reach of young people”. This delightful Dyna Junior joins the Mikli collection in 2009. This is an interesting convertible version, powered by the 850cc engine (X87). It is distinguished from the roadster by its exterior door handles, its sliding windows and its reduced lateral windshields. When it was purchased, it had benefited from a restoration of the bodywork, the running gear, the electrical circuit and the upholstery. Then, the engine and gearbox were completely restored by Pari Ter Automobile in Nanterre for an amount of nearly € 10,000, as can be seen by the invoices. The bodywork is sound, and the upholstery in dark red faux leather, the dashboard and the steering wheel give the Spartan interior a luxurious touch.

It didn’t finish the event, but on 28-29 May 1955, with Garoni and Collin behind the wheel, it won the ” Sports ” class in the 5th International Rally in Aix-en-Provence. In 1957, the car was acquired by André Brunel. It was registered 525 GF 06, and prepared by Lucien Chanchou, the renowned driver and Panhard dealer, who had a garage in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon. Following an accident, the car changed appearance somewhat, in particular at the front : the air intake and the grille were enlarged slightly, with lateral ribs appearing between the headlights and the foglamps. During this restoration, an air intake was added to the bonnet, and once the work was finished, the car was painted iridescent blue. In 1964, André Brunel sold the Dolomites to Pierre Dellière, founder of the museum in Orgon. In 1974 it passed in to the hands of Mr Vila, in Vaucluse. Repainted yellow, it was given a wide central black band and registered 163 NF 84. The next owner was the dealer Henri Lalanne who advertised the Dolomites for sale in various specialist magazines.

54 1953 Renault Fregate Ondine Ghia Cabriolet 24 34 085 €80,000 €100,000 N/R Not sold Not sold N/A Metallic Teal over Beige. Here’s a car that may well be unique. The first version of this convertible was unveiled by Renault at the Paris Motor Show in 1953. Built in steel, on the base of the Amiral, the car was shown with luxurious equipment, including radio, leather seats and fitted luggage… its beautiful design was the work of Luigi Segre, the design director who left his mark in the history of the famous coachbuilder Ghia. This model met with much acclaim, but the high price of the car signaled the end of its future at the end of the show. However, this project did not completely disappear into oblivion, as in 1957 three polyester models were presented in the Renault workshops. Their numbers were: 741, 742 and 743. The last two, and the model exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1953, seem to have disappeared, since many years of research have failed to trace them. The one that seems to have survived is 741, the car we are offering. According to the record books at Régie Renault, this car was delivered to the Garage Rey on 15 April 1957. The garage then sold the car on June 20 of the same year to an owner in the French Alps. From 1957, we have no records on the car till it reappeared in January 1968, still in same region, when it belonged to a Mr. Marcel Giron, who remembers that this car was used by Edith Piaf before he acquired it. The file provided by the current owner gives a list of five names who confirm that this car would have indeed been made available to the famous singer for advertising purposes during the period between 1953 and mid-1957. History records that the Régie Renault had actually resorted to such practices. Another of these convertibles had been entrusted to Mr Jacques Goddet, director of the Tour de France cycling race, in 1955, and was placed at the head of the advertising caravan and admired by millions of people. Therefore, it is possible that a star of the fame of Edith Piaf, and who loved convertibles may well have been entrusted with the model 741 ET. The history of our Fregate Cabriolet continues from 1969 to 2008 with six successive owners, including Philippe Charbonneaux’s Musée de Reims, where it remained, without being restored, till 1992. It was sold in 1993 to a Mr. Robardey, who undertook a comprehensive restoration over four years. The current owner bought this car in July 2008 and continued to care for it. What we have here is a historic car: beyond the fact that the car may have crossed paths with Edith Piaf, it is a piece from a great coachbuilder, and what is more, being made out of polyester, it is probably unique. It will have its special place in the most beautiful and the most prestigious of concours d’elegances. via Artcurial Paris ’16 $87k.
