The star of next year's sale is likely to be a Ferrari 275P, chassis number #0816, owned by Pierre Bardinon, which won the Le Mans 24 hour race in 1964 with Jean Guichet and Nino Vaccarella at the wheel. This was the eighth and final win for the Ferrari team at Le Mans. Following the win, the car was sold and shipped to the USA where it continued to be driven in races for several years.



While the full auction catalog is expected to be finalized by mid-December, a selection of models have already been revealed, including a 1939 Bugatti 57C Atalante coupé; several Porsche cars, including a 904 GTS from the collection of Jean-Claude Miloé; around 10 models from the Volante Collection, many with bodywork by Vanvooren; as well as an historic collection of Citroën DS cars with bodywork by Chapron.
