The auction of The Roger Baillon Collection was held three weeks ago at the Retromobile Salon in Paris, France. The collection of close to sixty automobiles was sold by Baillon’s grandchildren as the cars were found following as long as fifty years of storage in untouched condition. Parts of the sale have already been covered here, but we are sharing a dozen more new photos taken at the preview by Pavel Novitski of Novitsky Classics.
Articurial Motorcars, who auctioned the collection, choose to display the automobiles in an artistic manner in a darkened section of the hall. Each car was highlighted only by small floodlights at each corner and one white light inside. The effect was ghost-like and dramatic. We planned on waiting until now to share these images with you, but if you are new to the story you can look back at our extensive coverage of the Roger Baillon Collection here.
