Lancia Stratos clear winner at Artcurial sale


A Lancia Stratos Group 4 rally car sold for €360,000 at Artcurial’s Automobiles Sur Les Champs sale in Paris on 11 November.

Chassis number 391 competed in the Italian Rally Championship when new, and boasted a comprehensive competition history.

Other impressive results included an Aston Martin DB MkIII, which sold for €166,709 and a 1953 Arnolt Bristol 404 Roadster that was snapped up for €157,855.

It was a successful day for the French auction house, which recorded a sale rate of nearly 80% on the vehicles that crossed the block and nearly €3million in total sales.

Ferraris featured strongly and were topped by a 1972 Dino 246GTS (above) that cost its new owner €145,346, while a 365GTC/4 (below) made €83,395 and a glassfibre 1977 308GTB Vetroresina went for €58,377.

A Youngtimer 550M made €50,037, while its classic equivalent, a 365 GTB/4 Daytona failed to sell.

Cheaper, but no less exciting Italian alternatives could be found in the form of an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Coupé (€30,975), a Fiat 500 Giardiniera that sailed over its upper estimate to make €22,636, a Multipla variant (below) that earned €16,679 and a 2400 Dino Spider that sold for €45,272.

So will Artcurial, Osenat and the rest have to relocate their sales if the mad mayor of Paris bans all old cars from the city?
And Retromobile will have to move outside the city too?

hmmm, that's good question Chris, hard to tell for now.
