Bugatti T57 "Atlantic Spider" 1934 Quite a few classic cars are considered by connoisseurs as masterpieces of design and technology. About 1, everybody agrees it is the TOP: the Bugatti T57 Atlantic! Only 3 Atlantics are known to exist. These live a sheltered life in very exclusive classic car collections, being shown from now and then at prestigeous 'concours d'elegance' contests such as the ones from Villa D'Este in Italy and Pebble Beach in California. It's impossible to consider buying one although recently Californian auction house Gooding & Company announced they sold the late Dr. Peter Willianson's Atlantic for a record sum rumoured to exceed $ 30 milion USD. This means the Bugatti T57 Atlantic is out of reach of normal human beings unless... you are as stubbern as classic car enthusiast Werner Oswald and ask the famous British coachbuilder Rod Jolley to convert a genuine T57 (chassis number: 57160), sold new in 1934 as a Galibier saloon, into your ultimate motoring fantasy: an Atlantic Spider. Due to the sophistication of this project it took several years (from 1985 until 1992) before the "Atlantic Spider" was finalised. As soon as my customer, a Brussels aristocrat and well known Bugatti collector who during many years owned the for King Leopold road converted Bugatti T59 Grand Prix, saw the article in the january 1993 Classic & Sportscar magazine featuring this Atlantic Spider in a 5 page article, he set off to England to buy this Bugatti from Werner Oswald. The "Atlantic Spider" slept nearly 20 years in his vast, heated classic car garage where, just for the pleasure of admiring his collection, the owner came by every day. Because of the owners old age this unique Type 57 "Atlantic Spider" now comes up for sale for the first time on the classic car market. Any Bugatti connoisseur would be very proud to add this in every sense absolutely unique Bugatti to his collection. Could this be you? This genuine Bugatti T57 still has a UK registration and her full history is confirmed in the Bugatti Club Registry for the BeNeLux.
