Classic Citroen cars sold at auction in 2012 with prices.


CITROENS GO UNDER THE HAMMER


Over A £1,000,000 Of Vintage & Classic Citroen’s At Auction In 2012


We have searched the globe for the best auction results for 2012 on a wide range of Citroen cars and commercial vehicles ranging from the 1920’s to the 1990’s.

Some of these never even made it into production and others that sold in there millions.All the Citroen’s we found are quite scarce on our roads today or in some cases they barely got to see the road at all.

We have found examples of Cabriolets, Décapotables, Estate cars, 4X4’s, Commercials and we even found a rare Kegresse Half Track dating from the 1920’s in an auction in Denmark. There are some cars just like new, as though they had just left the factory yesterday with a little more than delivery mileage on the clock. Ones that you would only have to dust of and put in your garage, to ones that would need a few years of blood sweat tears and £1,000’s restoring it back to its once forma glory.

I would say that the majority of Citroen’s that we found sold well and the odd one went through the auction roof, who would think that the humble 2CV could reach the giddy heights of nearly £90,000 in auction. Although this example had been the show car at the New York Car Show in 1965 and happened to be the rare twin engined Sahara 4X4 with just 6,000 km from new. It would have cost around £600 back in the day. 

At the other end of the scale we also found a rare Plastic Bodied Mehari that was marketed to beach communities in Hawaii, Florida and California which only realized a measly £142, but it did look like it had just been dug up. Studying all the auction prices realized and the percentages of cars sold I would suggest that a lot more investors have been taking more of a keen interest in proceedings which has driven prices even further upwards.

The only disappointment was the Heuliez sale back in July where a number of prototypes and concept Citroen’s came under the hammer most of which failed to reach their estimated value. Where else could you ever get the opportunity to buy such rare models like a 1994 ZX Cabriolet, 1998 AX Estate, 1996 Xantia 4X4 Estate and examples of the very rare 1970 M35 Rotary engined Coupe or a 1971 SM Espace neither of which found runaway bidders.

We took a keen interest in auctions in the United States where there was no absence of buyers with very deep pockets. A lot of investors across the globe have begun to understand that Classic cars are a viable alternative investment. HAGI Historic Automobile Group International is an independent investment research house with expertise in the rare classic motorcar sector. They said that last year classic car prices not only beat returns on equities, but managed to out perform gold as well! With the housing market practically stalled, the stock market pretty much stagnated and with Classic car prices up in some segments by as much as 20% on 2011  it's not surprising there has been renewed interest in alternative investments in a more physical assets such as classic car.
