A Facel collection and other rare wonders at the next Aguttes sale
We’ve already taken a closer look at the Jean Brandenburg Collection, a trio of tantalising historic racing cars that will be offered by Aguttes at The Spring Sale on 15 March, but now it’s time to cast an eye to the rest of the catalogue. In addition to the number of exciting affordable classics such as the 1972 Fiat Dino Spider and the 1969 Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato, we think the stars of the show are the magnificent Facel Vegas.
Glorious Gallic gems, these handsome saloons were once the preserve of the world’s Jet Set. Of the collection, which ranges from a 1964 Facellia in ‘barn-find’ condition (est. 6,000–10,000 euros) to a brilliant blue 1962 Facel II (290,000–340,000 euros), our pick is the charming Facellia Cabriolet from 1961. A rare Series 1 example, the dinky drop-top looks to be in fantastic condition and treads just the right line between elegance and exuberance. It’s estimated at a reasonable 40,000–50,000 euros. You can find our 10 favourites from The Spring Sale by Aguttes, taking place on 15 March 2020 in Paris, listed below. Alternatively, you can browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market.
