These Gallic gems from Leclere Motorcars are filled with joie de vivre

If you’ve got a penchant for Gallic cars, you won’t want to miss Leclere Motorcars’ Vente de L’Aventure sale on 16 September in Hérimoncourt, France, which comprises an impressive and quirky collection of around 40 Citroëns, Peugeots, and other French fancies…

Each and every car in Leclere Motorcars’ Vente de L’Aventure sale, taking place on 16 September, embodies French joie de vivre, from the special and historically significant 1937 Simca 8 Gordini estimated at 700,000–800,000 euros to the rugged ex-Ari Vatanen 1991 Citroën ZX ‘Rallye-Raid’. We particularly love the road rally-prepared 1981 Peugeot 504 Coupé V6, with its of-the-era brown velour upholstery (est. 9,000–12,000 euros), and the 1973 Citroën DS 20 that was converted into a decouvrable or ‘semi-convertible’. A straight and true example of the iconic Goddess, the Massena Red beauty is estimated to fetch 55,000–75,000 euros.
