At Retromobile in 2016, Artcurial Motorcars set a new world record for a car at auction with the Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti from the Pierre Bardinon collection sold for €32M.
Artcurial Motorcars was created in 2010 from the historical legacy of Artcurial’s automotive department, then headed by auctioneer and race car driver Maître Hervé Poulain, and the arrival of a new team led by Matthew Lamoure, assisted by specialist Pierre Novikoff who later became assistant director in 2016, Iris Hummel, Director of Operations and Administration, and Antoine Mahé, specialist.
Together, they revitalize the department with an international dimension and the organisation of auctions during important events for collectors from around the world, such as the Salon Retromobile or Le Mans Classic.
Artcurial Motorcars has progressively strengthened its ranks by welcoming Anne-Claire Mandine, administrator, Sophie Peyrache, head of the Automobilia, Maritime and Aeronautical department, Benjamin Arnaud, specialist, and Sandra Fournet, junior administrator.
