Cartis, an unforgettable journey in a classic car


A collection of automotive masterpieces

The Cartis Classic Car experience offers much more than just a classic car rental. Created by renowned manufacturers such as Donald Healey, these works of art once transported the likes of Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Steve McQueen. Each car in the Cartis private collection has been carefully selected over the past fifteen years and stands testament to the exceptional automotive design and craftsmanship of the 1950s and 60s. Rent one of the cars in the Cartis collection and you will find yourself behind the wheel of a genuine masterpiece, all set for an exceptional journey.

Our collection

Your 100% digitally guided trip

Your car is equipped with a market-exclusive audio-guided GPS app. Our Cartis GPS app is a true technological marvel. Available offline, it guides you along your route, allowing you to fully savour every precious moment of your classic car journey. Staying off the beaten track, rent a Cartis classic car and set off for the scenic trails of the French countryside, all mapped out for you by the app. Much more than a simple GPS, the app notifies you of all the unmissable sights. Like your own personal tour guide, it gives you details about the next stop or hotel on your tour and tells you where to find the nearest petrol station on the way. Tailored to your needs, it guarantees a driving experience of total pleasure and leisure.

Your journey with Cartis: an eco-friendly approach

At Cartis we are committed to EcoTree to support biodiversity through the planting and renewal of French forests: We participate in the restoration of the wetland of Trinité Langonnet.

We offer you, when you take over your classic car, a tree managed sustainably by EcoTree in one of their forests. You thus become owner of your tree and make an environmental gesture which has sense!

l'Art Automobile 2021 - Château de Groussay

Où l'importance de préserver ⚜l'artisanat et l'héritage français ⚜ prend tout sa dimension ! La 2ème édition d'Art Automobile orchestrée par Jean-Marc THEVENET s'est déroulée le week-end dernier.

Elle a vu exposés des modèles aussi rares que cette Delage D8S de l'ancien Mahraja Yashwantrao Holkar d'Indore venue spécialement d'Inde pour l'occasion ou cette Facel Vega HK2, produite à 182 exemplaires.

Cette dernière est considérée à l'époque par la presse internationale comme la plus belle voiture française d’après guerre et comme le coupé à quatre places le plus rapide du monde.

Ces modèles sont la fierté de l'histoire de l'automobile française. Ils rentrent sans conteste dans le patrimoine français. La finesse de ces modèles (mascotte Lalique d'une pure beauté), la passion de ces artisans et de leurs propriétaires me font penser que ces pièces de collection, aujourd'hui en voie de disparition, supportent dignement la comparaison avec certaines oeuvres d'art sculpturales et picturales françaises.

Se pose alors la question de la préservation du savoir-français de ce secteur représenté aujourd'hui par 20 000 personnes travaillant au quotidien à la restauration, au maintien de cet héritage laissé par de véritables artistes de l'automobile français. C'est notamment grâce à des initiatives comme celles de Jean-Marc THEVENET mais aussi grâce au travail sans relâche des équipes de la Fédération Française des Véhicules d'Epoque que ce patrimoine artistique prendra pleinement sa place dans l'histoire de France.
