Even if you aren’t bidding, Osenat’s Salon Epoqu’auto Sale on the 7th of November in Lyon would be well worth attending anyway, purely to gaze in awe at all the stunning metal going under the hammer. The 1976 Maserati Khamsin is an unusual treat with a design that would turn heads away from many Ferraris of it’s era, while the regal W111 Mercedes-Benz 250 SE practically wrote the book on how to properly execute a pillar-less coupe.
On the more affordable, but no less desirable end of the spectrum is the Alfa Romeo Giulia 1750 Veloce, which would surely be a quarter of a million euro car if it weren’t for the model’s sales success. The Peugeot 404 is another car that would offer a taste of the 60s Jetset lifestyle for a fraction of the cost of contemporary Italian sports cars, while still looking the part. Finally, the picture-perfect Fiat Dino Spider is a rare beauty that still has us questioning why it doesn’t have a prancing horse on the front. There’s plenty more to daydream about, however, so take a look at our top 10 choices below.
