First Look: French Racing Cars, from Bugatti to Alpine-Renault

Launch Slideshow

France has been the spiritual home of auto racing since the world’s first Grand Prix race took place there in 1906. Despite garnering tremendous reception within enthusiast circles, French automobiles never managed to find their footing in mainstream appeal. Today, however, collectors have come to treasure the best of French sports and racing cars produced over the last century. Kicking off its 2018 European calendar, RM Sotheby’s fifth annual Paris auction will feature several French marques with unique charm and unmatched performance ethos – click ahead to see six of these gems. –Jake Auerbach
