Mercedes-Benz France offering 20 cars at Artcurial’s special auction

Half of the 40 cars on the docket for Artcurial's Mercedes-only auction in October are coming from the private collection of Mercedes-Benz France

Artcurial Motorcars will stage a Mercedes-only auction October 15, and not only will the sale be held at the Mercedes-Benz Center in Rueil Malmaison, Paris, but 20 of the 40 cars on the docket are coming from the private collection of Mercedes-Benz France.

“What an opportunity for an enthusiast to acquire a classic model from the manufacturer itself!” Matthieu Lamoure, Artcurial Motorcars’ managing director, said a news release.

“Organizing a unique sale with a marque as prestigious as Mercedes-Benz will give collectors the change to immerse themselves in the history of the automobile, an iconic marque synonymous with luxury, strength, elegance and performance.”

Cars on the docket range from a replica of the first three-wheeled 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen to a 300 SL Gullwing — and a roadster — and the 500 SL used in the television series Dallas, among others, Artcurial said.

    A new business model for Mercedes Benz? Is MB-France the test case.? Did they roll-off – to sit in Mercedes-Benz museums? No petroleum products added?
    Eight to ten + decades later. Have they now entered another market – The Arts Market? This is a different group of collectors where no unreasonable offer is refused.
