Augment your autumn with Aguttes in Lyon

Aguttes’ annual Autumn Sale in Lyon has become something of an institution in the French collector car scene and the catalogue for this year’s edition demonstrates why. The 53-lot catalogue is studded with interesting classics and ‘youngtimers’ – we’ve selected our favourites…

The Aguttes Autumn Sale in 2019 is spearheaded by a spaceship-like 2005 Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster that’s had just two owners and shows 28,200km on the clock. What’s more, it’s believed to be one of as few as 20 examples fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox, which likely goes some way to validate its pre-sale estimate of 250,000–350,000 euros. At the sharp end of the catalogue, we were also taken with the 1966 Porsche 911 2.0 (est. 180,000–220,000). An early short-wheelbase example finished in the elegant shade of Polo Red, it has been comprehensively restored.

Elsewhere, we thought the rally-specification 1988 Lancia Delta Integrale (23,000–30,000), complete with nicely executed Alitalia livery, looked very good despite not being a factory-prepared car, particularly at its price point. We certainly wouldn’t turn our noses up at the 1994 Ferrari 456 GT, either, especially as it has the desirable manual gearbox fitted (45,000–55,000 euros). You can find our 10 favourites from Aguttes’ Autumn Sale 2019, poised to take place on 9 November in Lyon, listed below or, alternatively, browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market
