Bugatti sold for €3.4 million
February 8th, 2009
The 1937 type 57S Atalante Bugatti car was gathering dust in a garage for 50 years before it was sold for amazing €3,417,500 in an auction in Paris.
This is a very special car. Only 17 of them were built and sold. One of the owners was Harold Carr, Newcastle doctor, who died recently and left this amazing car to his relatives. They listed the car in an auction in Paris with the following description:
“The new owner will have the pleasure of firing up [engine] 26S and hearing that turbine-like sound that so excited Earl Howe when he collected this car from Sorel in 1937. Once again [chassis] 57502, a true supercar with impeccable credentials, emerges to take its place on the world stage.”
What do you think? Is´t to much money for this car?
