Artcurial Motorcars and Mercedes-Benz France have announced a single-marque auction this fall that will include 20 vehicles from the collection of Mercedes-Benz France. Around 40 other cars wearing three-pointed stars will be on the docket.

“Following several highly successful single marque sales, it is exciting for Artcurial Motorcars to be joining forces with an automotive pioneer such as Mercedes-Benz,” Matthiew Lemoure, managing director of Artcurial Motorcars, said in a news release.

“The Mercedes-Benz France collection is a glorious reflection of over 135 years of history and we are delighted to entrust this heritage to connoisseurs and enthusiasts of our marque,” added Marc Langenbrinck, president of Mercedes-Benz France.

The sale will be held October 15 with a preview the previous day. Both events will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Centre in Paris.

Artcurial is still accepting vehicles for the sale and will announce the docket at a later date.
