In the garage littered with sand found vintage cars for a million dollarsDecember 31, 2018
The owner kept the cars from the 50s
The head of the auction house Artcurial Motorcars found three vintage Bugatti and one Citroen in a sandbagged garage. The preliminary cost of cars that no one touched since the 50s, is about a million dollars.
In the garage we managed to find Bugatti 57 Graber Cabriolet, Bugatti 49 Gangloff, Bugatti 40 and Citroen 5HP Trefle. The cars belonged to a Belgian sculptor who kept them for the sake of learning – he was not interested in driving. At the same time all the cars are in excellent condition.
According to Artcurial, for 57 Graber Cabriolet it will be possible to gain up to 600 thousand euros. And it will be the most expensive copy. Cars put up for auction Rétromobile, which will be held February 8 next year in Paris.
In the spring of this year, the owners of LBI Limited, a company specializing in the sale of collectible cars, found rare cars in one of the underground garages of Manhattan, which have been standing there for about 40 years. In the summer, a unique Jaguar XK140 with a bodywork by Giovanni Michelotti was discovered in the garage of a deceased Belgian collector of classic cars. It is believed that all were released two, a maximum of three such cars.
