As every year, the Retromobile show hosts the now famous sale Artcurial, which usually offers very nice prizes. We remember in particular the very beautiful Alfa Romeo 8C of 1939, then sold for the tidy sum of 16.7 million euros in 2019. While the event will be postponed, due to the health crisis and the difficulty for foreign exhibitors to travel to France, the sale will also be postponed but will indeed take place, to the delight of visitors. collectors and the curious. And this year again, it is likely to be talked about, with a few exceptional batches.
A rich history
And among them, it is impossible not to mention the Audi A8 that belonged to Johnny Hallyday, obviously. This will indeed be offered at auction during the sale on March 18. Estimated at between €25 and €55,000, the German sedan spent no less than eight years in the hands of Jean-Philippe Smet, whose name is still written on the vehicle registration document. Driven by his driver, she then allowed him to drive between Paris and his villa La Savannah, located in Marnes-la-Coquette.
The car, which currently displays 192,000 kilometers on the odometer, is sold in very good overall condition, apart from a few small superficial scratches.
