1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante to go on auction in February

One of the most unique and most anticipated antique car auctions will be held by Bonhams on February 7 in Paris.

1937 Bugatti Type 57S AtalanteThe story of this car is well documented on the web. Dr Harold Carr left an unmolested 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante to his nephews and nieces when he died in 2007. This is a truly unique car, 1 of the 17 ever made, and it is in an extremely good condition. The auction is anticipated to have one of the highest hammer prices ever paid for a car with the estimate up to £6 million ($8.6 million)

We will post the results once the auction concluded in February. A ’38 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante was recently sold for around $1,094,148 so if this 1 year older version fetches $8 million plus, that will be truly amazing.

    Hi, I'm James Knight of Bonhams, the gentleman who handled the sale of the car on behalf of the family. The T57S was bought by the perfect collector – from mainland Europe. He intends restoring the car mechanically – so that he can use and enjoy her – but leaving as much of the cosmetics as he possibly can, to preserve the originality.
