Artcurial Motorcars – Artcurial Motorcars presents The W Collection: From Stockholm to Monaco, one of the most important private cars collections in Europe, which will be auctioned on the 9th of May 2024 in Monaco, ahead of the Grand Prix Historique. This exceptional collection of 44 rare classic cars recounts the passion of a Swedish aesthete driven by a profound love of cars and aesthetics. The collector has decided to sell his collection, with no reserve price.

The story of this collection begins over half a century ago, with a young man of humble origins who lived in the colorful landscapes of his native Stockholm. At the time, Sweden was one of the world’s leading importers of prestige sports cars, and his passion for automobiles was born as he encountered some of the world’s most exclusive cars. He was not only behind the development 
of a famous international clothing brand in Europe, but also a passionate car enthusiast. He laid the first stones of what will become The W Collection: From Stockholm to Monaco with an initial Swedish acquisition, symbolizing his taste for rarity and excellence: an elegant Volvo P1800 S, which will be exhibited during the sale in tribute to his early days.

The W Collection: From Stockholm to Monaco stands out not only for the precision in selecting 
these timeless pieces but also for their exceptional condition, whether they are restored or in their 
original state. These rare cars, some of which have received awards at elegance competitions, encapsulate a lifetime of passion and receive immense care and attention. The collector has exclusively worked with the best workshops for the restoration of his precious pieces – Italian 
craftsmen for Ferrari and German for Porsche and Mercedes.
