If you thought the recent discovery of 11 unused E34 BMW 5-series was the ultimate barn find, you may wish to take a look at this incredible assortment of vehicles.
It’s an 81-strong fleet of cars found in France which are now being auctioned off individually, and it’s a ridiculously eclectic mix. Perhaps you’d like a Citroen Rosalie van (above), or maybe a Lincoln Continental? On the auction page there is also a pair of Packards, a trio of Lancias and a few brands you’re unlikely to have even heard of.
Exotica rubs shoulders with the humdrum in the bizarre collection. At the high-end of the scale, there are cars like a P400 Lamborghini Miura with an estimate of €400,000 - €600,000 and a Jaguar E-Type with an upper estimate of €60,000, contrasted by a 1994 Peugeot 306 XND. We’re particularly fond of the Trabant, which is expected to go for around €100 -200.
The cheapest vehicles are listed with lower estimates of just €50, and there are plenty of random parts going for peanuts too. One highlight is a polycarbonate Ferrari GTO replica body which could go for as little as €300. You could always convince your boss that it’d make for a great office ornament…
The caveat here is the condition of the vehicles, which ranges from terrible to “that’s not a car, that’s just a pile of rust”. But still, the lots make for intriguing viewing. Take a look and let us know what stands out for you.
