The results from both the Bohnams and Artcurial auctions at Rétromobile proved interesting.  Not just to establish new market values for Citroëns but because of the number of Citroëns on offer.   48 alone on the block at Artcurial from the private collection André Trigano.   The quantity up for sale affected pricing…

Surprisingly a Méhari 4×4 fetched €50,064. and a 1968 ID 21 F Break a whopping €71,520, but Traction Avants and the earlier models were pretty much a steal!   One would have thought that rarity would command a guaranteed premium, but a 1935 Traction 7C  Coupé went for only €107,280.   And overall DS prices were low.

2CV Saharas continue to retain their investment value; In this case an original barn find 1961 Sahara selling for €172,840. Low mileage original condition late model 602cc 2CVs are going for a premium.  A 1990 2 CV6 Charleston sold for €38,144.  That price may have been buoyed by a 1974 2CV6 Charleston selling for $49,500 US at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Scottsdale AZ the week before.  It was a nicely restored example, (certainly not original), and its over value sale was probably because sale proceeds went to a charity.

We have updated both of the articles we published on the Rétromobile auctions where we listed all the Citroëns.  We now show the auction results.  You can view Bohnams here and Artcurial here.
