2015 Retromobile Show and Auctions report ...

This week, the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles hosted the 40th annual Retromobile show. One of the very best shows of its kind, Retromobile always attracts enthusiasts from all over the world. This is thanks to the event's unique charm that, despite some changes, has not been lost. Where else will you be able to see the world's only functioning King Tiger lined up alongside three Bugatti Royales? At this year's show, some of the special features included a display of Pegaso Z102s and a selection from the Lopresto Collection. In addition to the show, there were also three auctions in Paris during the week, from RM Auctions, Bonhams and Artcurial. The latter stole the show with the barn-find Baillon Collection. All lots were sold, often for many times the top estimate, and the sale was topped by the ex-Alain Delon 250 GT SWB California Spider, which set a new world record at EUR 16.3 million.
As always, we were in Paris to capture the event and the auctions. The result is this concise report illustrated by four galleries with a total of 450 shots!
In the coming days and weeks, we will take a closer look at some of the event's absolute stars.

If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
