Bugatti T57 S Atalante
A story about the 1937 Bugatti T57 S Atalante is crazy. This car was part of a private collection in England. The owner had numerous cars and was a prominent member of the classic car community. But this Bugatti was in hiding and no one knew it existed. Even his family had no clue that he owned the cars. However, after his death, they found one of the 17 Bugattis made in a shack in amazing original condition (via Auto Blog).
As one of the finest pre-war brands, Bugattis always fetch high prices at auctions. But the 57S Atalante, a gorgeous coupe powered by a straight-eight engine and covered with a beautiful body, is a true collector’s dream. This one found a new buyer for over $8.5 million. It could probably fetch a bit more if sold again. The wealthy customers held Bugatti’s exclusivity, performance, and unique engineering aspect in high regard, hence its extreme prices.
