Retromobile Paris still knows how to put on a great show. Arguably one of the best of its kind. There was a huge variety of machinery to gawk at including more Alfa Romeo 6 and 8C’s in one room than I’ve ever seen before, a myriad of Bugatti’s, ex-Le Man sports racers, Grand Prix cars, tractors and the most wonderful cross section of Tatra’s. There was everything to see and plenty of time to see it. The event covers five days from Wednesday to Sunday. If you were looking for hard to find parts for your pre-war Peugeot, Bugatti or Amilcar then you were in luck. There were a host of sellers with a huge selection parts.
The usual high end sellers were present as always with some fantastic consignments. Max Girardo impressed with an ex-Schumacher Ferrari F1 car from 2995 whilst Fisken’s brought the, perhaps more exciting, ex-Jacky Ickx Ferrari 312 B2 among other great cars. For the early Alfa Romeo fans the Lukas Huni stand had the most incredible selection of 6C and 8C models. For those who have not been I would highly recommend it. I enjoyed Retromobile Paris more than the UK offerings plus… it’s in Paris. Who doesn’t want to spend a weekend in Paris?
