Artcurial’s 1.2m-euro Monaco royal car collection sale, 26 July 2012

The pre-sale estimates at Artcurial’s Monaco sale of selected cars from the personal collection of HSH Prince Albert were torn up, as all 38 entries sold for a massive total of 1,180,000 euros.

The AMG-converted 1983 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC (estimate 15,000 - 25,000 euros), ordered new by Prince Rainier, achieved 117,600 euros, while a modest Fiat 500 more than doubled its estimate, selling for 26,300 euros.

Auctioneers Hervé Poulain and Matthieu Lamoure shared the rostrum, Lamoure commenting afterwards:

“The Monaco result rounds off an exceptional run of sales this year for Artcurial Motorcars. To date, in 2012, our sales have totalled 25 million euros.”
