Catawiki, partenaire Rétromobile


The widespread belief is that only extremely wealthy people can own classic cars. Retromobile, in partnership with Catawiki – Europe’s leading online auction platform for buying and selling special items selected by experts – is breaking down this stereotype, with a collection of iconic cars on sale for less than €25,000 (including VAT) that enthusiasts will be able to acquire at the 45th edition of the show. This year, the exhibit-sale will have no fewer than 160 locations dedicated to the sale of classic vehicles worth under €25,000 over a 5000 m² surface area – that’s 50% more than last year! That will mean an even more diverse range of vehicles on sale and so greater choice for the 132,000 visitors to Rétromobile!

Classic cars for under €25,000: a dream that anybody can afford

For this year’s Retromobile from 5 to 9 February 2020 at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre, Catawiki will be lending the services of two of its best experts: Manuel Garriga, car and motorcycle journalist renowned for his contributions to many French specialist press publications (La Vie de l’Auto, Moto Légende, Nitro, Moto Revue Classic, and others) and Frederic Bortoloni, classic and sports car connoisseur, as well as being a collector himself. Every day at 3 PM, they will hold a walking tour, which will leave from the Catawiki stand (G076 in Hall 3). They will take visitors on a tour of the ten most iconic and interesting cars on sale in this hall dedicated to cars worth less than €25,000. During the tour, Catawiki’s experts will share key information about the history of these models, together with precious advice for unearthing jewels at classic car sales.

The 2020 Retromobile will also be an opportunity for classic car enthusiasts to take part in the “Catawiki Valuation Game”. They’ll have to use their smartphones to guess the price of each of the ten cars presented during the tour. Whoever’s estimate is closest to the actual price will be given a purchase coupon worth €1000 to spend on Catawiki’s online auction site. (The coupon will be valid for purchases of €5000)..
