Artcurial, the Paris-based auction house, is again expanding its presence in Monaco, this time with a biannual auction of prestigious cars.

The first Artcurial Motorcars will take place on July 2, with more than 100 vehicles going under the hammer at the Grimaldi Forum. The event will alternate with the Le Mans Classic.

Artcurial currently holds auctions in the Principality in January and July, centred on jewellery and watches.

However, this will not be the first time Artcurial is involved in selling top-end cars in Monaco. In 2012, the auction house sold a number of vehicles from the Prince’s collection, and then in 2014 sold two cars that previously belonged to Maria Callas, among others, at a sale at the Hermitage.

Among the cars being offered this July will be a Ferrari F355 that once belonged to Jean-Paul Belmondo and a Porsche RSR that was previously owned by Johnny Halliday. The catalogue will be available by the end of May.

While Paris remains the centre of Artcurial’s focus, the sale in Monaco is an attempt to capture a new market, the company says.
