Bugatti Type 57S Atalante: Auctioned for $4.4 Mio

Bugatti Type 57S Atalante
The barn-find Bugatti Type 57S Atalante which we have mentioned earlier has been auctioned off for $4.4 Mio.

The rare barn find 1937 Type 57S rolled across the Bonhams “Retromobile” auction block in Paris this weekend as scheduled, where it sold to a European collector for the equivalent of $4.4 million. While that may sound like a chunk of change – and certainly is by most standards, especially in this economy – it’s only half of the highest estimates placed on the Bugatti’s value upon discovery. You can bet that, after decades of neglect, its new owner will put in another hefty sum to have it restored to pristine quality before it starts hitting the concours circuit around the world.
