Artcurial Auction in Paris: The top sellers

With a sales rate in excess of 90 per cent, Artcurial’s fifth ‘Automobiles sur les Champs’ auction in Paris was a great success. We take a look at the top-selling lots.

This year, the annual Paris auction was held at the Théâtre du Rond-Point (near the Champs-Elysées), as opposed to the French auction house’s headquarters that has traditionally housed the sale. A total of EUR 8.7 million was achieved at the sale, thanks in part to the many lots which smashed their estimates – as the following list shows.

Lot 212, 1938 Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux (Lecoq): EUR 523,400 (estimate EUR 250,000 - 350,000)
