The Bugatti Type57 S found after fifty years in a workshop in the United Kingdom certainly cannot be defined as just any car. Indeed, the director of the auction house Bonhams Sholto Gilbertson elected her “Definitive car of its timeSpeaking on CNN.

After all, this car has a particularity that makes it absolutely special. In addition to the fact that the machine was found in practically perfect condition, we must also take into account that, according to what Bonhams, this car features the Type 57G “Tank” competition chassis. In practice, it is one of just three models built with this frame and whose fate has been lost track. One has now come back to light and obviously this aspect makes the value of the car in question particularly high.

Taking into consideration the excellent condition in which it was found and the rarity of this model, the Bugatti Type57 S with the Type 57G “Tank” competition frame, it has a value that can even exceed seven million euros. Definitely astronomical figure for a car that is, however, historic and special.
