A 1969 Lamborghini Miura S that formed the central exhibit on Osenat’s stand at Rétromobile earlier in the year finally went under the hammer in Fontainebleau on 27 May, bringing a well-deserved €844,500 (estimate €700,000 – 1,000,000) after the original auction, slated for March, was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak in France.
Other exotica changing hands included a 2008 Lamborghini Murciélago LP640-4 Roadster, last serviced in 2019 with 41,106km on the clock, at a mid-estimate €206,400 and a 1979 Ferrari 512 BB, owned by the vendor since 2003, at €144,000 (estimate €150,000 – 200,000).
The sale also featured a collection of seven pre-war Packards, with a second-series 1917 Twin Six Runabout claiming the top honours, selling for €165,600 (estimate €150,000 – 200,000).
Strong results included a 1954 Ford Comète Monte-Carlo, restored after the consignor’s purchase in 1990, which smashed its €30,000 – 40,000 guide, making €52,800; a recently restored 1960 Lancia Flaminia Cabriolet did likewise, raising €116,400 (estimate €80,000 – 100,000); and a 78,900-km 1983 Renault 5 Turbo 2 fetched €72,600 (estimate €55,000 – 65,000).
Osenat posted a €2.5 million sale total and an 80% sell-through rate.
