1931 Voisin Mylord Demi-Berline to Be Auctioned
text size: A- A+
The 1931 Voisin C20 “Mylord” Demi-Berline, known for being one of the most sensational classics from the 1930s, is recognized as a marvelous tribute to the design and engineering genius of Gabriel Voisin.
The car to be auctioned is powered by one of only five extraordinarily intricate Voisin 12-cylinder sleeve valve engines known to have been built, and the interior draws heavily from Gabriel Voisin’s aviation background with a various number of controls and exposed mechanical components.
“Having won Best of Show here earlier this year, the Voisin has established a permanent link with Amelia Island, and we are honored to present it as our cover lot at our inaugural Amelia Island auction.” says David Gooding in a release. “Launching an exciting start to our future in Florida, we are extremely excited to offer the exceptional 1931 Voisin Demi-Berline at Amelia, especially as it is the first time this remarkable automobile has been offered at auction.”
Gooding & Company’s 2010 Amelia Island Auction will be its second-ever auction in the state of Florida. To this point, David Gooding commented: “we conducted a great sale at Palm Beach in 2006 where we set a number of records and we have been looking for the right opportunity to return ever since.”
