Discovered only months ago in a forgotten shed, the Baillon Collection of cars were said to have been rescued by Roger Ballion, a French transport magnate who intended to donate them all to a museum because of their classic design. This never came to pass and the vehicles were forgotten about, until they were discovered once again on his estate in rural France. Now, 59 of the cars worth selling were co-signed to the auctioneers at Artcurial who handled their sale during the classic car show “Retromobile” which took place this weekend in Paris. The highest ticket price of $18.5 million USD was awarded to a rare 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider with covered headlights, one of only 37 made. Another collector paid $2.2 million USD for the 1956 Maserati A6G bodied by Frua. The Ballion Collection brought in $28.5 million USD in sales, setting a total of 10 auction world records.
