Superb Collection Of Porsches And One Fine Ferrari Headline Artcurial’s New Automobiles en Scène Summer Sale
Artcurial Motorcars will be holding a new summer sale in Paris in the historic Théâtre du Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées this year. The inaugural promises 80 superb collector cars from some renowned private collections. The event will take place on 17 June and among the vehicles on offer will be a fully restored 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB from the collection of Jean-Pierre Slavic, valued at between 2 to 2,2-million euros ($2.2 to $2.4-million). Porsche fans will be very well catered for as well with nine highly collectible models from Zuffenhausen spanning the ’90s and 2000s.
This fine collection was put together over a 12-year period by well-known Porsche collector Eric Coicaud. Notable offerings include a 1993 964 RS 3.8 a 1997 993 GT2 and a pristine 2005 Carrera GT. The 993 GT2 is expected to fetch upwards of 1-million euros ($1.1-million) while a 1989 3.2-liter Speedster bookends the offerings with an estimate of between 125,000-175,000 euros ($140,000-$196,000).
The balance of the 80-strong line-up will be comprised of a variety of desirable automobiles from across the world including a 1974/5 Lancia Stratos, which at an estimate of 450,000-500,000 euros ($504,000-$560,000) should attract its fair share of interest. The sale is preceded by two days of viewing on the La Plus Belle Avenue du Monde, a stretch of road leading to the Arc de Triomphe, the perfect backdrop to showcase these iconic classics.
