Artcurial are known for hosting periodic motorcar sales through their Paris HQ although these aren’t regular enough to be specifically tracked. The October 2019 sale is highlighted by a Fiat Otto Vu/ 8V, specifically a 1953 Rapi bodied coupe. Fiat decided to launch an upmarket sporty road/ racer in 1952 and Dante Giacosa developed a 105 – 130bhp 2 litre 70° V8 that would be mounted in a Rapi designed tubular chassis and fitted with Rapi coachwork although Vignale and Zagato bodied cars were soon available. Fiat believed that Ford had copyrighted the V8 so the car was named the 8V instead. 62 cars were built by Rapi, 28 to this design and just 13 are known to survive. This particular car was delivered to Turin but ended up in the UK in the early 1960s and passed to various owners before it was restored in 2000 and eventually passed to the vendor in 2009 who had it restored once more. Artcurial note that this 8V is in ideal condition and that it runs like clockwork. 8Vs are excellent cars but lacked the development of contemporary Maserati’s and Ferrari’s and remained unknown until recently. While the very best and prettiest examples are worth up to $2 million, Artcurials €1.1 – 1.3 mil. ($1.21 – 1.43 mil.) estimate is bang on for a car that is cool but ungainly.

Bugatti’s first car was the straight four Type 10 but they soon developed the 16 valve engine and a longer wheelbase for the Type 23 which became the first true production Bugatti. Artcurial are offering an example with Tandem Sport coachwork, a sporty but usable 2 seater in excellent mechanical condition which may be largely original. Regardless of its originality the estimate is very high compared to other Brescia at €550 – 650k ($605 – 715k). Value would likely be somewhere around the $400k mark.
