For a few years before World War II started, Bugatti’s Molsheim factory only produced one model, the Bugatti Type 57. It came in various body types, of which the Atlantic is probably the most famous, but the production run was not very impressive (710 units in seven years).
Most of these cars received a coupe form, some came as sedans and even fewer were open-top vehicles. One of those very rare Type 57s is going to make an appearance at the upcoming Pebble Beach event. Boasting a coachwork by Gangloff of Colmar, the precious Stelvio Cabriolet is said to have been commissioned by the Pernod family and its over seven decades of life is very well documented. It still holds its original engine (a 3.2-liter inline-eight) and the four-speed transmission. It is estimated to sell for between $700,000 and $800,000.
