SOME hidden treasures from the Citroen stable will be going under the hammer next month as the French car maker has a clear out of its historic car collection.
The company is moving the Reserve Collection from its museum to a new home near Paris where it is part of the recently opened L`Aventure Peugeot Citroen DS heritage centre.
In preparation for the move, 65 vehicles and 90 items of automobilia will be sold at auction on December 10.
The vehicles are estimated to sell for between £800 and £18,000 and include a number of rare Sbarro Citroen prototypes, pre-war vehicles and modern classics.
Details will be revealed when the catalogue for the sale by Leclere-mdv is published on November 20.
A Citroen spokesman said: "Due to the unique nature of this sale, L`Aventure Peugeot Citroen DS is ensuring that collectors of the Citroen marque across the world will be able to take part in the auction."
He said that L`Aventure Peugeot Citroen DS was dedicated to continuing the heritage of the Citroen brand and all successful bidders will be invited to become members of The Association which administers the collections of all three PSA brands.
