Citroën to sell 65 of its heritage collection cars
Citroën is selling off vehicles and automobilia in preparation for a move from the famous Citroën Conservatoire
Citroën Heritage is selling off an unprecedented 65 vehicles and 90 items of automobilia from its Reserve Collection at the famous Citroën Conservatoire, in preparation for a move to the company's new heritage organisation, L’Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS.
The vehicles are estimated to sell between £800 and £18,000 and include a number of rare Sbarro Citroën prototypes, pre-war vehicles and modern classics. Many are marked as for restoration or recommissioning, and some – including two Mehari 4x4s – simply for spares.
At least 16 of the vehicles are either prototypes or full-scale models, the majority of them from the 1980s. One of the full-scale models is of the radical Xenia concept, designed by Trevor Fiore, and another is a cutaway of an XM created for motor show display.
The Citroëns have been assigned to French auction house Leclere-mdv for a sale that will take place on Saturday 10 December from 2pm CET at The Citroën Conservatoire, Aulnay-sous-Bois, north of Paris, with bidding also available by phone and online via a live stream on www.drouotlive.com. Pre-sale viewing will be on Saturday 9 December.
