Cars in the spotlight

Only a few days left before the opening of the highly anticipated Retromobile Show. As usual, the Aguttes on Wheels team will be pleased to welcome you on its stand, n° 0J21 in Hall 7.3, on which will take place a sharp, but also eclectic selection of six classic cars.

A collection is not meant to be frozen, like a sleeping museum, but should be seen as a living whole, evolving over time, like a child's growing toy box... Retromobile is a huge toy box! 

On our stand, we will present extraordinary cars, entrusted by six of our very good clients and friends. Pre-war enthusiasts will not be disappointed as the Bugatti Type 35 C, the star of our next Vente de Printemps on 27 March, will be on display alongside the unique surviving Omega-Six, an iconic roadster from the late 1920s with technology derived from a racy Hispano-Suiza with an incredible history and racing record in the hands of driver Hellé Nice. As we have a huge passion for sports and racing cars, the following four cars are eminently historic. First of all, a Lotus Eleven S2 which has the particularity of having raced in the 1959 Tour de France Automobile and one of the fifteen Maserati Barchetta produced by the Modena factory in 1993. It is the only one in the world to have been road registered! Certainly a must-have for any fan of the Trident brand. 

Last but not least, two Formula 1 cars from the 1990s will complete the podium, but not just any cars, as they were driven by two future World Champions... you can admire them on our stand and who knows, soon on the racetrack!
