Artcurial Offers Bart Rosman Collection at Rétromobile

At this year’s Rétromobile auction, Artcurial Motorcars will present a collection of top-level classics from well-known Dutch collector Bart Rosman. Rosman, a driver and mechanic, focused mainly on the Ferrari and Bugatti worlds — and his collection reflects that interest.

Three of his favorite cars will be offered in Paris at no reserve: a 1951 Ferrari 340 America Barchetta ex-1951 Le Mans 24 Hours, a 1929 Bugatti Type 35C that finished 4th in the 1929 Monaco GP and a 1931 Bugatti Type 43 Grand Sport “Prima Donna” that’s preserved in fantastic condition.

On top of that, the sale will also present a Bugatti Type 35 project that he started to build in the 1980s, along with hundreds of parts to support the marques that he loved.

The Ferrari is estimated at 5,000,000 to 8,000,000, while the 35C could bring between 2,500,000 and 3,500,000. The Grand Sport is thought to be worth between 1,200,000 and 1,600,000.

The auction takes place on February 3, 2023 at Salon Rétromobile at Paris Expo in the Porte de Versailles. Learn more here.
