A special exhibition in Altlußheim, in the north of Baden, is devoted exclusively to the vehicles of the Bugatti Type 57. Ettore Bugatti’s son Jean had the vehicles developed in the years 1934-1939 at the French factory in Molsheim. Even then, his great sense of automotive design resulted in a great success of this series. Today, the Bugatti Type 57 is considered in professional circles therefore a milestone of a vehicle era, which again made headlines and helped to some fame of the Bugatti brand. Not only on civilian routes, the fastest street-legal car in the world was the T 57 TT. Also in Le Mans, Jean Bugatti could retract victory at the 24 hours race in the 1937 with the legendary T57 G (tank) for the first time.
The vintage “T57 Atlantic” of which only two original vehicles exist worldwide, is now considered to be the world’s most expensive car and comes from this last French series.
The most recent auction brought $40 million for the Bugatti Atlantic – a princely sum for an 80-year-old “car”.
Conducted by Foundation Board Member Horst Schultz a total of nine different models of the series T57 has been restored and reconstructed over the last five years t, so that a special collection could be build up, that is unique in Europe can only be seen in this form in Museum AUTOVISION in Altlußheim.
The exhibition goes into overtime and is presented until the end of 2016.
