1913 Panhard X19 roadster to make $43,700 at Prince Albert auction?
A 1913 Panhard & Levassor X19 roadster is among 38 Prince Albert II of Monaco cars to auction
Paul Fraser Collectibles, Monday 25 June 2012
A 1913 Panhard & Levassor X19 roadster is one of several superb classic cars coming to auction from the collection of Prince Albert II of Monaco next month.
The oldest of the renowned French marques, Panhard & Levassor is famed for its luxury vehicles.
This specimen features a 10hp 2150cc four cylinder side valve engine and retains its original body, controls and wooden steering wheel.
It was previously owned by famed collector René Giordano.
"This Panhard will delight enthusiasts of pre-1914 cars, both in the aesthetic sense as well as its technicality. The engine's powerful enough to easily cruise in the streets or to participate in rallies," says the auction house.
It will be joined by a 1924 Panhard & Levassor X47 limousine Weymann at the July 26 auction in Monaco. It too has an estimate of €25,000-€35,000.
The prince has put 38 vehicles up for auction as part of a major reorganisation of his collection. Many of his most stunning pieces can be seen at the prince's car museum in the principality.
A 1925 Citroën 5 HP torpédo "Trèfle" Super-culasse will also star, with a €12,000-15,000 valuation.
For militaria collectors there will be three second world war Dodge army vehicles, including a 4x4 command car, which is expected to achieve €20,000-30,000.
