One of a two type 57's we are selling; The cars are available individually or together as a pair.
The chassis was delivered in 1934 to Guidelam Ltd in Southampton. UK for the consideration of 60. 000 Francs
It was then shipped to Vanvooren to recieve a very elegant open body. The model was called Ventoux Tourist Trophy Torpedo.
Similar bodys were built for chassis 214 - 224 - 228 - 231 -244 and 414.
An all new aluminium body was built some years ago (replacing the original body) in the style of the T 57S Competition Torpedo Prototype with inch perfect dimensions taken from the original factory blueprints. The full restoration took an enormous amount of time & a vast sum of money; the equivalent of 500. 000+- Euros in today's money was spent. Many early Bugatti experts were involved and most parts were sourced new in Molsheim. The car Moved into the hands of the current owner more than a decade ago. The now elderly owner. a very well known Bugatti expert brought the car up to the concours condition we find it in today. The engine. chassis and aluminium bodywork were redone and detailed to perfection. The attention to detail is incredible. The owner has used the car regularly for himself touring in the southern parts of Europe.
This T57 drives & sounds like a Grand Prix Bugatti and the engine is very powerful. It pulls from low revs and is incredibly strong. Compared to other similar models. which are much heavier of course. it behaves a little like a Grand Prix Alfa Romeo 8c. Very very fast and precise. but also utterly stable & civilized.
The car is well known in Bugatti circles but was never on the open market. It starts at the button and needs nothing. A real opportunity for the . collector.
The car will be displayed on our stand at Technoclassica in Essen if a sales contract has not been entered into by the start of March.
