Among the 10 cars presented by Aguttes on Wheels, their collector's automobile department, are for example examples with very low mileage (a mild euphemism) such as a Rover Mini British Open Classic which has only 24 km or a Citroën 2CV Charleston from 1990 which also only displays 24 km. And in the family of incredible gems, Aguttes offers a collection of Porsches including one of the most authentic 911 3.0 RS from 1974 which took part in the 2017 Tour Auto driven by the five-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Derek Bell, a Porsche 356 C Carrera 2 from 1963 equipped with an extremely rare sunroof, or a Porsche 993 3.8 CUP “EVO RSR”. 


Youngtimers now popular with collectors of the new generation, a Lotus Elise S1 with only 3,665 km will be there as well as the most exclusive production Porsche since the 1990s with only 500 examples produced, a 997 GT2 RS delivered new in France in 2011.
The Automobilia department is not left out with no less than seven real treasures for collectors including an authentic Sir Lewis Hamilton helmet from the 2022 season, or a model of the Porsche 904 Carrera GTS born, like the 911 Type 901, under the brilliant pencil of Ferdinand Alexander “Bützi” Porsche, grandson of Ferdinand and son of Ferry. An exceptional model offered to its current owner by the factory.

 

Impossible to dissociate automobiles and timepieces, among the six lots offered by the Collectible Watches department are four emblematic Rolex Daytona chronographs, including a very rare reference 6263, as well as a very rare watch created by the Swiss watchmaker and artist Gerald Genta.


The Contemporary Art department offers five lots including three works by the sculptor-welder artist Fernando Costa, presented by the artist himself. Originally from Sarlat-la-Canéda in Dordogne, where he is still based, Fernando Costa signed the official Art Car for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2013, a car sold last year at auction by Aguttes! This self-taught artist who exhibits all over the world cuts, pieces then assembles and welds mainly road signs or street signs to create touching works, often colorful and joyful, between pop-art and street-art.
