A beautiful example of 1930’s era French car design, this Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux turned many a head at the 10 Concours of America. Another Bugatti, a much rarer Type 57 SC Atlante won best in show, but it was all black and much less fun to look at than this wild yellow and black Bug (I know, cars snobs are rolling their eyes right now). In fact, the Bugatti Atlante that won used to be a 2-tone yellow, which was 100x cooler than the all-black it is now…. sometimes there is a good reason that a car does not have the original paint job.
Either way, this Type 57 Ventoux was my favorite Bugatti at the show. It was very “Cruella DeVille.”
Enjoy the pics!
