« This auction has rounded off a year rich with records and emotions, the result of sales organised by a renowned team that has won the confidence of collectors. The 11th edition of this successful series of sales, that takes place in the heart of the French capital, paid tribute to the French Automobile, and in particular the Bugatti 35. With 75% of motor cars sold, we have shown that the collectors’ car market remains strong and sustainable.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2018 for an exceptional sale at the Retromobile Show ! »

 

 

Though fewer in number, French automobiles took centre stage in this sale, achieving some excellent results. The star was lot 18, the sublime 1925 Bugatti Type 35, a car with a rich history in competition. Formerly owned by the Swiss driver Jo Siffert, it was one of just two surviving Type 35 models to have been sold new in Italy. The auction house Artcurial once again demonstrated that rarity and provenance is key, achieving 1 438 900 € / 1 669 124 $, including premium for the Bugatti, well above the estimate of 1 000 000M – 1 350 000M € / 1,2M – 1,6M $).

Peugeot also enjoyed its moment of glory, highlighting French expertise in the early years of the automobile. The 1896 Peugeot Vis-à-Vis 3.3/4 HP (lot 17), the most powerful version of the model available, attracted much attention, fetching over three times its estimate and selling for 208 600 241 976 $ including premium. The 1908 Lion Peugeot 8HP Type VC Phaéton (lot 16) found a new owner for 46 500 € / 53 940 $, also well above its estimate of 20 000 – 30 000 € / 23 200 – 34 800 $.

Another star of the show was lot 70, the 1954 Bentley Continental Type R Mulliner, that changed hands for 814 100 € / 944 356 $ including premium. Just 209 examples of the Bentley Continental R were produced and in its day it was one of the most expensive cars in the world. Complete with well-documented history, it was no great surprise that this highly luxurious and stunning automobile found a new owner.

A few hours earlier in the day, the Artcurial Motorcars team had joined forces with the Patrouille de France (the French air force demonstration team) for a charity sale, in the presence of PAF Captain, Cyril Touzet. On the rostrum once again, Maître Poulain achieved a total of 74 190 € for three charities : the Cercle Sportif de l’Institution Nationales des Invalides, the Association Sourire à la vie and the Association Solidarité Défense. The 20 items donated by the Patrouille de France 2017 included the 9 pilots’ leather jackets, including that of the leader, Commander Christophe Dubois (lot 15), which sold for 9 000 €/ 10 440 $, nine times the estimate. Bids for a rare MSA Gallet Type LA-100 helmet (lot 7) started at 2 000 €, and flew to the final sale price of 21 000 €/ 24 360 $.
