Weekly auto agenda: RetroMobile Paris
Friday 22 January 2010
Retromobile begins in Paris on January 22, a collector car haven for those with enough money to bid and a fun day out for everybody else. The 102nd edition of the Chicago Auto Show opens in February, ahead of the start of the NASCAR season.
RetroMobile is known as the "Pebble Beach of Europe" (a reference to the prestigious classic car auction), and is expected to welcome over 120,000 visitors to the 35th year of the show. Auction highlights include a 1925 Bugatti Type 22 Brescia Roadster that has recently surfaced after 70 years at the bottom of Lake Maggiore.
