Raymond Loewy’s ’72 Avanti goes to auction

A 1972 Studebaker Avanti II Coupé, formerly owned by the model’s designer Raymond Loewy, will be auctioned by Bonhams on May 11 in Monte Carlo.


Raymond Loewy purchased the Avanti II Coupé – which was designed by Loewy himself – directly from the Avanti Motor Corp. in 1972, and kept it until his death in 1986.
