Bonhams took over the Retromobile mantle from Christies and the first two years hosted the official Retromobile sale. These two years coincided with a renewed impetus in the Motoring department and they offered the Saoutchik bodied Mercedes that may be a frequent flier but is one of the most beautiful cars ever built and then the barn find Earl Howe Bugatti Type 57S Atalante and did spectacularly well for the period. A poor 2010 sale was followed by Artcurial becoming the official Retromobile sale hosts and Bonhams has since struggled to sustain any momentum, the sale becoming more of a boutique sale. Normally a place to buy quirky French exotica not seen anywhere else, 2020 sees Bonhams lift this sale into one that’s comparable with the best anywhere. It truly will be one to watch.

Bugatti had enormous success with the Type 35 Grand Prix and Type 43 sportscar but decided to develop an all new fast road car and with a new much stronger Type 47/54 chassis and the advanced supercharged 2.3 litre Straight 8 from the Type 51 had the basis of this new car. The Type 55 was the state of the art road car and more than a match for the Alfa Romeo 8C and Bentley Blower but perhaps lacked the road manners of the others. Bonhams Bugatti Type 55 has a unique story beginning with it being built as a standard 2.3 Litre Supersports for Bugatti team driver Guy Bouriat to enter for the 1932 Le Mans 24 Hours. Bouriat and Chiron were entered and were highly competitive. Unfortunately the Type 55 ran fifth for the first three hours before running out of fuel thanks to a holed fuel tank and being disqualified for refuelling before the minimum 30 laps. The second owner, Jacquees Dupuy, decided to have it rebodied by Figoni and noted it was capable of 125mph.

Dupuy soon entered the Type 55 in the Paris-Nice rally where he won before it passed through various French ownerships. The Type 55 was finally consigned to Gaston Docime in 1955 with its engine removed and remained there until 1962 when a British collector bought it to add to the other two Type 55s he already owned. AA Morse soon sold the Figoni bodied car and by the mid 1963 it was bought by Geoffrey St John for £750. St John restored the car using engine 26 from #55-223 and retained it until his passing and his estate is offering it at this auction. So that’s the good news, unfortunately the bad is that in mid 1994 Mr St. John was driving through France and was struck by a drunk driver which caused untold amounts of damage. St. John restored the Type 55 again and it is said to retain 90% of its original chassis and most of its original parts. Bugattis that survived the 1950s and 1960s were almost always subject to parting out and rebuilding without regard to originality and most Type 55s are also rebodied, re-engined or otherwise lacking. This Type 55 is no different and while the very best are $10 million propositions, I feel Bonhams €4 – 7 mil. ($4.4 – 7.7 mil.) estimate is bang on. Its understandable that someone might consider this Type 55 originality issues less important and bid the higher amount, if not the lower amount is nothing to sniff at.

Ferrari had dominated the sportscar racing world although Porsche were capable of the odd upset and Ford, Matra and others were planning their 1965/6 campaigns. Porsche were totally dominant in the sub 2 litre category and especially the newly popular hillclimb championships while Ferrari already had a new 65 degree V6 on the drawing board based on the engine developed for the Dino SP of the late 1950s. Ferrari announced their 1965 race programme including a new 168SP race car that was based on this engine and a scaled down tubular chassis based on the contemporary P2 series. The new 166SP as it was launched with the 1.6 litre v6 in 190bhp form and with incredibly light weight they were successful straight away. An improved 2 litre engine was fitted to create the 206SP mid year and with Scarfiotti at the wheel it took out the European Mountain Championship. Such was the success of the type that Ferrari announced a program to build 50 production cars to enable it to take part in the Group 4 championship. Ultimately Italian unions and internal machinations saw just 18 built and they were relegated to running in Group 6 with much more powerful cars and Ferrari put little effort into racing them after 1965 and their success became limited.

Bonhams are offering the 11th of the 18 cars on offer and was sold to wealthy Italian amateur Clemente Ravetto who entered it in Italian hillclimbs and the Monza 1000km where it was run by Ravetto/ di Giardinelli and retired with engine failure. Pietro Lo Piccolo purchased the car in 1968 and had it rebuilt into Spider form before entering it in the 1970 Targa Florio and further local races. Jess Pourret and Pierre Bardinon later owned the car before passing to Jack Setton in 1984 and has remained in totally original condition and basically unused since acquisition. Recent sales are few and far between but prices for the better examples had been in the $2.5 – 4 million range since 2007 and the market hasn’t moved that much. While this is a totally original example, it lacks the competition record of some and is in the less pretty Montagna form while it will require a big expense to get it ready to drive. As such I can’t imagine more than about the $3 million mark for this lovely 206SP.

Mercedes developed the 500k as their ultimate sportingly luxurious road car in the mid 1930s and made it available with multiple different coachwork styles. Arguably the finest was the Cabriolet A and Bonhams are offering an example of the 500K Cabriolet A that was originally sold to noted French actor Henri Garat. Recently restored to magnificent quality and with just three owners from new this is one of the best examples of the breed. The €1.5 – 2 mil. ($1.65 – 2.2 mil.) estimate is market correct for the quality.

Bugatti rationalised their model range into one, the Type 57, and offered it in a wealth of different forms to compensate but in doing so created one of the greatest 1930s cars yet made. Bonhams are offering two of the finest examples, an Atalante and Stelvio, the Atalante is a former French car that ended up in Scotland where it was stored for 32 years from ’55. After being purchased by an American in 1987 this Atalante was restored to 100 point perfection before recently joining a UK collection. The second car was one of the beautiful DHC built by Gangloff and was displayed at the Paris Salon in 1939 before passing through three owners and is offered in highly original condition with just 47,000 km from new. The Atalante is estimated at €1.5 – 1.8 mil ($1.65 – 1.98 mil.), the Stelvio at €1.35 – 1.65 mil. ($1.485 – 1.815 mil.) and while the Atalante is market correct, the Stelvio is likely 100 – 200k too expensive. Stunning cars and more than worthy of the ask.

Invicta had been making quality cars for many years when the new Meadows 4.5 litre engine became available and they launched the S-Type Low chassis in 1930. Just 75 of these cars were built and all were tagged as being capable of 100mph which was plenty for a fast road car in the early 1930s. Bonhams example is S75, nicknamed Scout and offered with known history since 1938 and in very well loved original condition. That said only one Invicta has ever really exceeded $1 million and that was a car with Brooklands racing history. Bonhams has offered an estimate of €1.2 – 1.5 mil. ($1.32 – 1.65 mil.) but I would be surprised if this car gets to that number, perhaps $1.2 million would be more appropriate.

Mercedes Benz began their post war renaissance with the 300SL Gullwing and its replacement the 300SL Roadster continued to add to Mercedes reputation. The ultimate 300SL Roadsters are those with aluminium engine blocks and disc brakes, just 200 of which would be built between 1961 and 63. Bonhams have offered a €1.3 – 1.5 mil. ($1.43 – 1.65 mil.) estimate and but for the twenty year old restoration its totally worth the ask.

Bugatti had immense success with the 2 litre Type 35 but the new Voiturette regulations required a 1.5 engine and Bugatti developed a short stroke straight 8 to compete in the category. #4607 was run at the Grand Prix de Tourisme at Montlhery where Foresti used it to finish third. Bugatti entered five of these in the Voiturette class at the Italian GP at Monza where Foresti again drove it, to finish 7th. Two of these Type 39s were then sold via Colonel Sorel in the UK to Australia where they were raced with success through 1933 before suffering the indignity of a Ford V8 transplant. The old Bug would be raced through 1954 before being sold to Bob King who began a multi year rebuild to its original Monza spec. Two owners later this Type 39 represents a good example of a very rare Bugatti Grand Prix car and would be a cornerstone to any collection. While it isn’t 100% original it must be noted that its still more original than many Bugatti and is well worth Bonhams €1.05 – 1.4 mil. ($1.15 – 1.54 mil.) estimate.

Delage developed the D8 in the very late 1920s and a few years later debuted the replacement D8S with its 4 litre straight 8 and advanced chassis. The various D8s would go on to gain a reputation as one of the best 1930s classics bar none. Bonhams D8S was delivered to the UK after Chapron had bodied it and was eventually discovered in the USA where it remained before returning to Europe in 1994 and being restored to perfection. A rather elegant but not exciting Delage, this car is likely worth the low end of Bonhams €800k – 1.2 mil. ($880 – 1.32 mil.) estimate.

Wilfredo Ricart was hired by ENASA, a bus and truck maker, to create a new spanish sportscar in the early 1950s and as he had done at Alfa Romeo developed an incredibly complex vehicle that was light years ahead of anything Ferrari were then making. The Pegaso (Spanish for Pegasus) was never a big seller but remains a fascinating 1950s exotica. Bonhams example has rather unusual Enasa Cabriolet coachwork that is elegant if not particularly sporty but would be welcome at any driving or concours event. Based on other Pegaso sales Bonhams €800k – 1.2 mil. ($880k – 1.32 mil.) estimate is a touch steep but perhaps value at the low estimate.

Results

Bonhams were the only truly successful auction with their strongest Paris sale in five years. 64% of their 100 cars on offer sold including the 1931 Bugatti Type 55 at $5.05 mil. helping them to sell $21.37 mil worth, a touch less than Artcurials result but significantly higher on a per car sold basis. The strongest sellers were the 1943 BMW R75 Military Motorcycle Combination at €32k ($35k), 34% above its high estimate and 1931 Invicta S-Type Low Chassis Tourer at a huge €1.61 mil. ($1.775 mil.) or +7%. Mid estimate sellers were the 1934 Talbot 105 Tourer at €880k ($970k), 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K Cabriolet A at €1.61 mil. ($1.77 mil.) and the aformentioned 1931 Bugatti Type 55 Figoni DHC at €4.6 mil. ($5.05 mil.). Poor sellers were the 1993 Volkswagen Golf Mark I Cabriolet at €12k ($13k) or 53% below its low estimate, 1968 Porsche 911T at €32k, -43% and 1960 Austin-Healey Sprite Mark I Roadster at €15k ($16k) or -40%. It wasn’t all success at Bonhams with failures including the 1935 Delage D8S Chapron DHC at a reported high bid of €660k, 1925 Bugatti Type 39 at €820k, 1966 Ferrari 206SP at €2.85 mil., 1939 Bugatti Type 57C Stelvio at €1 mil. and 1938 Bugatti Type 57 Atalante at €1.3 mil. Bonhams really did a great job in Paris and they reaped the success with some great results.
