Prestige automobile auctions return to Monaco

 - 02/07/2020

Now that lockdown is coming to a close, major auction houses are beginning to bring their wares to market. A case in point is Artcurial Motorcars, which has announced a sale of prestige automobiles in Monaco on July 21, 2020.

The high-profile event is set to go ahead at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo in the principality on the French Riviera. Although the full catalogue for the sale has yet to be released, details of two exceptional automobiles that are due to go under the hammer have already been announced.

The first of these is a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster with an estimated price tag of 800,000 to one million euros. The second is a 1939 Bugatti Type 57 cabriolet Vanvooren estimated at 600,000 to 800,000 euros, which will be presented without a reserve price.

The automobiles that are up for sale will be on display from July 18 to 21, 2020 at the Monaco Top Cars Collection museum (which houses the automobile collection amassed by Prince Rainier III). The sale will begin on Tuesday, July 21 at 5 PM.
