A collection of nine supercars has been consigned from a single collection for Artcurial Motorcars’ Le Mans Classic auction, scheduled for July 7 at the famed French racing circuit.

“This modern collection consists of largely limited edition cars, all presented at very attractive (estimated) prices,” Matthieu Lamoure, managing director of Artcurial Motorcars, was quoted in the auction house’s news release.
