One London dealer has assembled a startling collection for Rétromobile 2017

They say you can’t make everyone happy, but with such a variety of stock on display in Paris this year, Gregor Fisken and his team have a pretty good chance…

French fancies

Whether you have a penchant for racers, grand tourers, pre-War, or classic, the heady cocktail of first-class metal that Fiskens has brought to Porte de Versailles covers all bases in perfect style. As we have come to expect, Gregor Fisken’s love for pre-War performers is evident, with our pick being the 1931 Alfa Romeo 8C — a legendary vehicle in its own right, this particular example was a Mille Miglia regular and raced by Nuvolari in period. A pairing of British racers, the 1959 Lister Costin (the first to be powered by a Chevrolet engine) and the ugly duckling 1952 Aston Martin DB3 (one of just eight remaining), are sure to delight 1950s racing enthusiasts; while Formula 1 fans can worship at the flat-12 temple of the ex-Villeneuve 1978 US Grand Prix-winning 1978 Ferrari 312 T3.

On the road-car front, the 1965 Barcelona Motor Show Aston Martin DB5 in stunning Charcoal Grey, the ex-Saudi royal family 1975 Lamborghini LP400 Periscopia in fitting eye-popping Yellow, and the period-perfect Brown-over-Beige 1973 Ferrari Daytona Spyder with a scarcely believable 3,900 miles from new are highlights of a remarkable selection, which you can find listed in its entirety below.
