We’d raise our paddles for these cars from Osenat in Fontainebleau

On 15 June, The French auction house Osenat will return to Fontainebleau for The June Auction, a fascinating sale comprising some 60 young and old collector cars including, rather fittingly, two very desirable pre-War Bugattis. These are our favourites…

Osenat has assembled a fantastic and diverse selection of collector cars for its annual auction in Fontainebleau, near Paris, taking place on 15 June. The 60-lot catalogue is spearheaded by two pre-War Bugattis – a unique Graber-bodied Type 57 Coupé from 1937 (est. 350,000–450,000 euros) and a Belgian yellow Type 35B owned by its current owner since 2005 (400,000–600,000 euros) – and a competition 1983 Chevrolet Camaro with Le Mans, Sebring, and Daytona history, estimated at 400,000–600,000 euros. 

Elsewhere, our attention was caught by the black-and-gold 1985 Lotus Esprit S3 Turbo, what looks to be a fantastic example of Giugiaro’s wedge-shaped British sports car (30,000–40,000 euros), the Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 that participated in the 1987 Paris-Dakar among numerous other events (10,000–15,000 euros), and the beautifully original, matching-numbers 1952 Jaguar XK120 OTS (80,000–120,000 euros). You can find our 10 favourites from the sale listed below or, alternatively, browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market
