Coys will offer more than 100 vehicles that it says have a combined value of 

€20 million ($23.75 million) at its sale in the Espace Fontvielle. 

“In the current market buyers are looking for quality and cars that will maintain and increase their value,” Chris Routledge of Coys was quoted in a news release. “So finding cars of the right quality and with interesting provenance is extremely important. We were able to provide €20 million worth of quality vehicles for our sale in Essen and we have done it again.”
