A Collection Of Rusty Classic Cars Fetch £ 20 Million

February 13, 2015 / by / 0 Comment

This is amazing breaking news. A treasure trove of classic cars which was found rusting in garages for more than 50 years has sold for £20 million in a blink of an eye. According to news at the day’s attraction was from this dusty and an eye sore vintage Ferrari California Spyder, which cleaned the pockets of the buyers by going for £11.8 million all by its own.

This happened in Paris auction on 6th February, 2015 at the Retromobile show and sold by auctioneers Artcurial Motorcars. Crack your ribs from the telegraph authors of Sun Times here about the auction of these vintage cars and to echo their words; if you can speak another language other than English and own an old car, you are a lucky star, because your world becomes huge and richer. The joke is not much about the cars which were hidden beneath piles of newspapers in shoddy shelters, but the amount of cash the buyers were willing to cough out, that, highlighted the auction.

The sale of the trove was so crazy that the auctioneers had to call car specialists Matthiue Lamoure and Pierre Novikoff of Artcurial Motorcars auctioneers. Mr. Lamoure said something amazing here that these crazy discoveries don’t just happen, until you study the faculty of discovery in a higher educational institution to understand that a treasure trove does really exist. Some cars in this Paris auction were in great shape but others were in a poor state, but amazingly, the lowest car sold for £5,000 – now that is news.
