The more, the list of previous owners is a summary of protagonists of the Bugatti make. Judge for yourself: - First owner: Bugatti Works Ettore Bugatti - Count de Boigne (brother in law of Ettore Bugatti. Count de Boigne was married to Ettores sister Lidia Bugatti). - John W. Shakespeare , who sold this Bugatti T57 with accident damage to the right front wing and radiator, together with 30 other Bugattis, including a Bugatti Royale, in 1964 to Fritz Schlumpf, woolen mill holdings owner in the Alsace region of France. - Fritz Schlumpf started to repair the accident damaged Bugatti Atalante with chassis n° 57618. Therefore he separated the body from the chassis. Unfortunately in 1977, disgrunted mill workers seized the factory buildings and discovered a remarkable site: a collection of 122 Bugatti's including the rolling Bugatti T57 chassis with n° 57618. - La Cité de l'Automobile, Musee National, Collection Schlumpf in Mulhouse - Bought from the Musée National de l'Automobile de Mulhouse by a French classic car colleague of mine in June 2014 and sold in January 2015 to us. - Marreyt Classics / Twin Cam bvba. Belgium - You...? This Bugatti T57 Atalante 2-nd series rolling chassis, correctly fitted with hydraulic brakes and telescopic rear shock absorbers, is totally correct and original and still carries her original chassis plates on the original fire-wall. Also the accident damaged radiator is still there. The rear axle has number 34C which belonged initially to chassis 57686 also a 1938 Atalante model sold to Mr. Noll in Germany but which came back to the Bugatti works just before WW II. The original 2-nd series incorporated headlamp accident-damaged Atalante body has been fitted in 1968 in Mulhouse to chassis 57386 which originally left the Bugatti factory with a seperate headlamp 1-st series Galibier 4-door saloon body. The original engine with N° 418 sits now in chassis ... We have been able to buy a correct Type 57 engine. We would very much like to give this rolling T57 chassis a new life which corresponds as much as possible to the car's former, famous Atalante provenance.
