Boosted by the continuing success of previous years, Rétromobile was held this year in pavillion 1, 2 & 3, the largest and most prestigious hall at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre in Paris. More space for exhibitors, more comfort for visitors, more reasons to buy, to dream, to find out information and to admire new and old products at the countless booths.

The Cavallino Classic began a new cruising class this year, meant for drivers who want to go fast on a track, but who aren't interested in full bore unlimited speeds. It proved very succesful because of its earnest but relaxed pace, and you could take passengers, always popular.

Peter Singhof, Alvin Acevedo


We speak often of barn finds, but how about out of a ravine. That was the fate of the Ferrari 250 GT Boano, s/n 0529 GT, until saved by enthusiasts in South America. It was brought back to the USA where an extensive multi-year restoration brought it back to concours perfection.

With six auctions over several days in January of 2017 in Arizona, the end results could have been predictable - no really big Ferraris so no really big sale to report. Rather, it was a flood of mid-range Ferraris that took the floor, and it all came down to how well the car ws prepared and how good the auctioneer was.
