Our 10 favourites from Aguttes’ Vente d’été collector car sale

On 1 July, Aguttes will offer a selection of automobilia and 34 collector cars at its Vente d’été sale in Lyon, ranging from 8,000 euros to over 200,000 euros. These are our favourites…

Spearheaded by a beautifully original ‘Carmine Red’ 1963 Citroën DS 19 Cabriolet (est. 180,000–220,000 euros), Aguttes Vente d’été sale takes place this Sunday in Lyon, France. The 34-lot automotive catalogue features collector cars for most tastes and budgets, from 1980s hot hatches such as the Renault R5 Turbo 2 (63,000–73,000 euros) and the rare Volkswagen Golf GTI Oettinger (35,000–45,000 euros) to a tidy looking Porsche 550 Spyder recreation built by Martin and Walker (60,000–70,000 euros) and an ultra-cool 1972 Citroën DS Break 21 Export. 

The latter is a rare American export fitted with the hydraulic transmission and would be an ideal car in which to ferry your friends and their surfboards to the beach. It’s estimated to fetch 25,000–35,000 euros. You can find our 10 favourites from the sale listed below or, alternatively, browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market
