“Following the government announcement requiring the closure of certain public places, the Automobiles sur les Champs sale organized by Artcurial Motorcars, scheduled for Sunday 1 November, has been postponed to a later date which will be announced in due course,” the French auction house has announced. 

We’d recently previewed the auction, which features a 65-car docket with barn-found vehicles and a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing.
