According to the Profile agency, a unique car was sold at the auction of the festival called Goodwood Revival – the 1935 Bugatti Type 57 Atalante Faux Cabriolet.
Its final cost was a record 1.5 million pounds. In total, only 3 such models were released, and the sold car is the only surviving instance in the world.
The unique car has a body painted in black and white. It is driven by a 3.3 liter engine. Such an engine allows the car to accelerate to 130 km / h. Despite his considerable age, the car has an original chassis, powerplant, gearbox and body.
In 1957, a rare car was purchased by an American collector, but then the car returned to Europe again. Its owner for a long time was Barry Burnett, a famous lover of collectible cars, who died in 2007. In addition, it is believed that the Type 57 Atalante Faux Cabriolet was ridden by the heroine of Sterwell de Ville from the painting “101 Dalmatians” and the cartoon of the same name.
