A collection of 30 vintage cars and youngtimers for auction on Benzin
Notice to all the barn-raising and fine mechanical enthusiasts: Benzin is proud to offer you the CYA collection for sale. An eclectic collection, both exciting and passionate that Arthur and Philippe, the owners, have chosen to entrust to Benzin. Among the thirty or so vehicles on offer, there is something for all tastes and all budgets: from the sympathetic Hillman Minx MK8 to be restored to the exceptional BMW M3 GT e36, the range of vehicles is as wide as it gets!
A family history
Between Philippe and his nephew Arthur, the passion for cars is a family affair. For Arthur it started with a small pedal car and continued later, once he had his license, with life-size toys. His first car? A R8 Gordini with which he drove more than 150.000 km through France and Europe and whose engine he had to replace no less than seven times. Arthur decided 4 years ago with the help of his uncle Philippe, a great collector of beautiful cars, to make his passion his profession.
An atypical collection
Over the years, these two car enthusiasts have acquired an impressive collection of cars and vans of all types and in all states. A single watchword in their collection: the passion of the beautiful mechanics and the rarity. Arthur confides to us that he takes as much pleasure in driving his M3 GT as his Peugeot J7.
