Artcurial’s 9-million-euro Le Mans Classic sale
Top-selling car was the 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB (below), estimated at 1,300,000 euros and selling for 1,540,200 euros. The ex-factory 1991 Peugeot 905 Le Mans car sold for 654,700 euros.
Those in the know tipped the for-restoration, very original 1965 Alfa Romeo GTA to do well. My goodness, it certainly did, selling for an estimate-busting 128,700 euros.
Another ‘barn-find’, the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina Coupé doubled its 100,000-euro pre-sale guide, selling for 210,900 euros.
Once again it proves that original, unrestored, unmolested cars from the best marques are the top tip right now.
