Artcurial Motorcars returned to the Principality a year after its last Monegasque sale, for an auction of collectors’ cars on 19 July 2021. The sale, which realised 6 556 652 € including premium, took place at the Hôtel Hermitage in Monaco. Led by the dynamic duo of Matthieu Lamoure, auctioneer, and specialist Pierre Novikoff, bidding was spirited in the room, on the telephone and via the internet.
Before the sale, Artcurial Motorcars held three days of viewing, with all the cars displayed either in the Fontvieille marquee or the Musée de la Collection de SAS le Prince de Monaco.
Considered to be one of the first supercars, the iconic Lamborghini Miura P400, a star of the sale, sold for 977 400 € to join a Monegasque collection. The lovely 1965 Aston Martin DB5, preserved in original but non-running condition by its one owner of the last 42 years, changed hands for 506 600€. Presented in Silver Birch Metallic, this iconic Aston Martin will turn heads once more in the hands of its lucky new owner.
Another desirable model, the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Touring, one of only 16 examples delivered in aubergine, changed hands for 484 000€.
The Ferrari 512 BB that belonged to the French singer Christophe sold for 168 000€, to the sound of his hit ‘Aline’, sung by Matthieu Lamoure in homage to its illustrious owner.
Amongst rally cars, the sole Peugeot 205 T16 to be liveried in the blue and white Pioneer colours, and the last example of 200 built, fetched 274 200€.
Of the more modern cars on offer, the Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet, one of just 99 examples of this luxurious and exclusive model boasting a V12 6.5-litre 630 bhp engine, found a new owner for 646 100 €.
Finally, a 1966 Fiat Jungla, the perfect Riviera beach car, will continue to enjoy life in the Monegasque sunshine ! It sold for €28 600.
“In a difficult context, we are delighted to have succeeded in holding a physical sale of high quality automobiles, with public viewing of all 120 lots, in which collectors have distinguished themselves with passion and panache.”
Matthieu Lamoure, Managing Director, Artcurial Motorcars
