It’s not too late to make your bid in Bonhams' Paris sale

Taking place at the impressive Grand Palais during Rétromobile, Bonhams’ annual Paris sale is a sight to behold. This year, the auction has moved online, but the line-up of cars is still spectacular

From 3-10 March 2021, buyers have the opportunity to bid online on an eclectic selection of collector cars from all eras and brands at the Bonhams ‘Les Grandes Marques du Monde à Paris’ auction. And while estimate prices for some of the hero cars of the sale – the Carrosserie Touring Superleggera Sciàdipersia show car from the 2017 Geneva Motor Show or the ex-Vic Preston 1988 Lancia Delta Integrale 8V Group A rally car, for example – might easily exceed a quarter of a million euro, there’s plenty to choose from, even for more moderate budgets.

Some of our dream cars with a sub-100,000 euro estimate include a 1977 Ferrari GTB in ‘Medio Verde Metallica’ formerly owned by World Land Speed Record holder Don Vesco and an equally exciting 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione painted in ‘Giallo Ferrari’. 

If you’re in the market for a 50,000-80,000 euro classic, we suggest having a look at the 1973 Alfa Romeo Montreal (we’d buy it just for the yellow headlights) or the two-owner 1997 Ferrari 456 GT finished in Swaters Blue with a beige interior. Potential sub-50,000 euro entries include iconic cars such as a 1971 Citroën SM – one of the first 200 examples produced – a rally-prepped 1977 Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC and a 1972 Lancia Fulvia 1600 HF – a rather affordable ticket to road rallies such as Tour Auto. You can browse the full catalogue of the Bonhams ‘Les Grandes Marques du Monde à Paris’ auction in the Classic Driver Market.
