The Cartis Classic Car collection

AN ART COLLECTION IN MOTION

During your rental, we put at your disposal exceptional collector cars designed by great men of the automobile. Each of our classic cars reveals the know-how of the 50's and 60's where passion for design and performance competed. Each model is unique and not like any other. It is different in terms of aesthetics as well as driving sensations, from leather interiors to the smell of the luxury wood and the roar of the engine.

With each acquisition, we work on the restoration or repair of the model with renowned craftsmen, specialists in the maintenance and repair of classic cars. The craftsmen who work with us favor repairing rather than replacing original parts whenever possible in order to preserve the original patina that is the soul and history of Cartis vehicles. Our intention: to optimize the reliability of each car and improve our carbon footprint while preserving its original condition. We favor, among other things, the replacement of the existing ignition by an electronic ignition to reduce Co2 emissions. By renting a car from the Cartis collection, you are promoting the automotive art of the 1950s and 1960s.

THE ART OF LIVING OF THE 1950S AND 1960S

With the emergence of new artistic, musical, literary, pictorial and automotive design trends, the period of the 30 glorious years was a time of great creativity. The models of the Cartis collection are an integral part of these artistic trends of the 1950s and 1960s and contributed to the image of the personalities who drove and owned them. They are the symbol of elegance and glamour. They represent the desire for freedom, travel, discovery, with a touch of insouciance like that of icons such as Brigitte Bardot, with her tousled hair, her bare feet, her minimalist outfits, her nonchalant attitudes, her wild side, her unsubmissive nature walking barefoot in restaurants, or Françoise Sagan who said: "Insouciance is the only feeling that can inspire our life and not have arguments to defend ourselves".

Rent a car from the Cartis collection and discover the art of living in the 1950s and 1960s.
