Artcurial Motorcars currently ranks as the leader in this speciality in continental Europe. Artcurial Motorcars has repeatedly managed the sale of exceptional collections, such as the Roger Baillon Collection in 2015, whose extraordinary history resonated throughout the international media with its Sleeping Beauties, including the discovery of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider, which sold for €16.4m. At Rétromobile 2016, Artcurial Motorcars set a new world record for a car at auction with the Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti from the Pierre Bardinon collection selling for €32m.

Artcurial Motorcars was born in 2010 from the historic heritage of the house’s automotive department, then headed by auctioneer and racing driver Hervé Poulain, and the arrival of a new team led by Matthieu Lamoure, assisted by Pierre Novikoff, specialist and deputy director since 2016. This trio has relaunched the department by giving it an international dimension and organising sales at key events such as the Rétromobile Show and Le Mans Classic.

Over the years, Artcurial Motorcars has expanded its teams with the arrival of Anne-Claire Mandine, director in charge of customer relations, Sandra Fournet, and Sophie Peyrache, in charge of the Automobilia and Aeronautics departments.
