Bask in the Uniquely French Tastes of This French Collector Car Auction
Bring the francophone funk.
The French auto industry is the world’s oldest, and it has pioneered innumerable innovations. The steering wheel. The De Dion semi-independent suspension. The automatic transmission. They’re all from the same place that brought us Napoleon and impatient disdain. The French auto industry also has a rich history of producing very, very strange vehicles, a proud heritage it continues to this day. (I’m looking at you, Citroën Nemo Multispace.)
French enthusiasts also love other people’s weird cars, too, something on display at the Aguttes auction in Lyons this weekend. Here’s a handful of examples, ranging from the serious to the, uh, not so serious. All of them, however, are well off the beaten path.
