Barn exits, these cars forgotten for ages in barns or under sheds, the collectors’ world is crazy about them. They are often the reflection of a unique story. And to remember the Baillon collection dispersed in February 2015 by the Parisian auction house Artcurial on the occasion of the Retromobile show. Or a Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet exhumed from a Marseille box in 2013, still by Artcurial. The source of barn exits never seems to dry up. Thus, during its traditional autumn sale, on November 1, the Motorcars department of the Maison du Rond-point des Champs-Elysées will once again bring out of the shadows a car whose history has not ended. to fantasize. The vehicle in question is nothing less than an AC Bristol. The English sports roadster from the early 1960s.

The story of the copy for sale is worth telling. In its own right, the Englishwoman has known only two owners, two best friends, a certain Guerineau and Marcel Perier. This will undoubtedly make more than one smile, but the course of the acquisition of the AC Bristol from André Chardonnet, importer of the brand at the time, was part of a competition organized by the newspaper Ouest -France. Sales representative, Marcel Perier finds the answers and gives them to his friend, professor of physical sciences and chemistry in Rennes, who wins the first ten prizes using nominees. He hastened to resell all the lots to afford the object of his dreams: an AC Bristol ACE roadster equipped with front disc brakes and a sports steering wheel. In 1971, to thank his friend Marcel, the science teacher gave him the red racing car at a symbolic price. Marcel Perier has always kept it, using it very little. The roadster has only traveled 18,000 km since it left the factory. It has never been restored, just maintained and still has its original paint. Marcel Perier’s wife hardly appreciates convertible travel, the Bristol has spent most of her life in a shed, next to a dovecote, behind the vegetable garden of her family home in Laval. A complete file including the order form, the purchase invoice, numerous letters and maintenance operations accompanies the vehicle. This roadster is estimated between 300,000 and 500,000 euros.

The Hubert André collection. Artcurial

The “Automobiles sur les Champs” auction catalog also includes a fine selection of luxury and sports cars from all eras. This is how Artcurial was chosen to disperse the collection of Hubert André, a Parisian lover of curiosities, including a De Tomaso Pantera GTS from 1973, a fully restored first generation Range Rover V8 but also a Bond Bug tricycle. from 1973 with 1000cc Yamaha engine.

His life is a novel that he retraces in masterful prose. With his autobiography “In Search of the Light”, Oliver Stone signs perhaps his most successful work: the bumped up journey of a battered patriot, the success story chaotic of an American who rubbed shoulders with hell when he believed he was in paradise, the self-portrait of a tortured man, full of paradoxes, mirrors of the hopes and madness of a country he never ceased to question in his films.

Stone avoids nothing and puts everything into perspective: his happy childhood in post-war America, the shock of his parents’ divorce and the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, his engagement as a simple troufion in Vietnam at the time. that studies at Yale were offered to him, the unspeakable (and so well related) experience of the war, the painful return to real life, his detour through prison for having passed a little grass on the Mexican border , his 1970s as a galley in a country on the verge of implosion, drugs, easy sex and illusory loves, the discovery of his sterility, his recognition as a screenwriter (“Midnight Express”, “Scarface”, “the Year of the dragon ”), the circus of the show bizz, the work with Alan Parker, Brian de Palma and Michael Cimino, the abortive collaborations with Al Pacino, Jane Fonda or William Friedkin and his success, finally, as a director with“ Salvador ”and “Platoon”, nominated for the Oscars the same year.

Covid-19: Is the curfew effective in fighting the epidemic?

The French will soon have to deal with an additional rule to fight the Covid-19 epidemic. Emmanuel Macron confirmed, Wednesday, October 14, that anot curfew between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. would apply from Saturday, October 17, in Ile-de-France and in eight metropolises (Grenoble, Lille, Lyon, Aix-Marseille, Montpellier, Rouen, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse). The latter will last at least “four weeks”, but could be extended to six weeks with the agreement of parliamentarians.

How is this measure justified scientifically? Has it proven its effectiveness in breaking the chains of contamination? Here are some answers.

>> Covid-19: curfew, exceptional aid, self-tests … What to remember from Emmanuel Macron’s announcements

Little data is available on the effectiveness of the curfew in controlling an epidemic. Before the Covid-19 crisis, this measure had never been introduced for health reasons, recalls the historian Patrick Zylberman, quoted by The Parisian (paid item). However “what is called the curfew is a measure which is relevant”, assured Emmanuel Macron Wednesday evening, because it allows “the slowing down of social contacts”.

To justify the implementation of such a measure, the president notably used the example of Guyana, where the curfew was tested. according to variable modalities since spring. According to a study pre-published Monday, to which the Institut Pasteur contributed, and that Release relayed, it has reduced the rate of transmission of the virus by 36%. “Due to the curfew, we have benefited from a halving of the peak of intensive care hospitalizations”, Clara de Bort, director of the Guyana Regional Health Agency, also explained to franceinfo.

“Since deconfinement, we can clearly see that all the precautionary measures, such as wearing a mask, physical distancing, encouraging teleworking and banning large gatherings, are not obstacles but brakes to ‘epidemic”, add in Release Mircea Sofonea, lecturer in epidemiology of infectious diseases at the University of Montpellier (Hérault). “The R0 is currently between 1 and 1.3. We still need about half a point of decline to get the situation under control. “, she adds to justify the implementation of such a measure.

“Of course, in small towns this does not help and does not change anything, but there is no denying a certain nightlife in Paris, Madrid or Berlin”, also falls for 20 minutes Michaël Rochoy, general practitioner and head of clinic at the University of Lille (North). And the expert to indicate that“we know that we are twice as likely to be contaminated in restaurants or bars than elsewhere”.

Other specialists are more divided. “The problem is that we cannot establish a certain correlation [entre couvre-feu et réduction des contaminations] since the curfew was not the only measure imposed in Guyana to contain the virus “, underlines Michèle Legeas, teacher at the School of Advanced Studies in Public Health, specialist in the analysis and management of health risk situations, in 20 minutes.

Otherwise, “we do not really know when and how the transmission of the coronavirus takes place”, even if “we see today [qu’il] circulates a lot in France in the 15-45 age group“and that we “suppose this age group comes out at night”, she says.

Finally, if it makes it possible to limit the economic consequences on companies, the curfew does not replace the closure of the places which constitute the main clusters, underline experts. “It’s a lot in business, in universities and schools”, notes Nathan Peiffer-Smadja, infectious disease specialist at CHU Bichat, in Paris, on franceinfo.

Lcompanies outside healthcare establishments (25%), the school environment and university (21%) the extended family environment and public / private events temporarily bringing together people (17%) are thus the main foci of transmission outside nursing homes, underlines Public Health France, in its last weekly update of October 8. It would therefore have been necessary to insist more on “teleworking which is important because we see a lot of clusters in business”, valued Nathan Peiffer-Smadja.

Dacia Sandero, the low-cost sedan is recovering

NEW – Favorite model of individuals, the compact Dacia reveals its plastic while waiting to be fully revealed on September 29.


Above all, do not talk about low-cost vehicles. It is too pejorative and degrading. The Romanian brand Dacia, which has established itself on the market in the space of 15 years with an unrivaled and almost never imitated price / performance proposition, now prefers to use another language and speak of an essential automobile. A qualifier that Citroën has used a lot to praise the merits of its 2007 Cactus concept, comes from a minimum automobile that wanted to reinvent the four-wheeled genre by reducing the equipment to the essentials and the weight, one of the best ways to lower the price and comply with pollution control standards. This reasonable car never saw the light of day at PSA.


On the other hand, for 15 years, with strong biases, Dacia has flown from success to success. The Sandero has become the preferred model for French individuals. This commercial success testifies both to the pauperization of French society and to the desire of a large segment of motorists to consume at the right price. Some have often thought that Dacia sedans, by their style goes everywhere, addressed to those who do not like the automobile. The manufacturer of the Renault galaxy wants to change this image. The third generation of the Sandero is gaining in seduction as evidenced by the first press clichés. The proportions are those of the compact sedan but the lines appear more modern and the modeling of the forms more worked. With its more inclined windshield, its more elusive roofline, its widened tracks and its wheels perfectly filling the marked wheel arches and its grille incorporating a light signature in Y, the Sandero gains in personality. This is even truer with the Stepway version which has the full range of the perfect adventurer and adopts a specific ribbed and more rounded bonnet and specific fog light units.

The new Dacia Logan in the background is unrecognizable. Dacia

A new Logan has also been revealed. Unrecognizable, the notchback sedan, which adopts a modern style, will not be sold on the French market. Like the Sandero, it is based on a revamped version of the Clio and Captur’s CMF-B platform. This will allow the new Dacia sedans to access modern equipment and why not the E-Tech hybrid powertrain. The technical details as well as the interior of the new Sanderos will be revealed on September 29.
