Couple of works of art have an indistinguishable level of persona from the Bugatti Type 57. In any case, while it might be the Atlantic that draws all the consideration, each 57 is an exceptional example unto itself. This one particularly.
One of just ten Grand Raid Roadsters to be assembled, this was one of only two that included custom coachwork – from its swoopy craftsmanship deco boards and secured wheels to its thunder situate – by Switzerland’s Carrosserie Worblaufen. The auto was finished without a moment to spare for the 1935 Concours d’Elegance at Montreux where it won initially prize.
After seven decades, after a far reaching rebuilding, it won second prize at the 2005 Pebble Beach concours, and now it’s backpedaling to Monterey where RM Auctions has it up for gets in August with pre-deal gauges setting its incentive at over $1 million. Investigate it in our high-determination exhibition.
