Bugatti T57 Stelvio 1936 RHD Classic car connoisseurs agree the lines of this Bugatti T57 Stelvio are of a timeless beauty. When I saw this Stelvio for the first time, those were indeed my thoughts! This T57 Stelvio with chassis 57440 was the 1936 Paris motorshow car being one of the attractions of the Bugatti stand. It is a very special model, coachbuilt by Gangloff, being in several aspects a little bit a-typique of the standard Stelvio. The lines of the boot and rear wings, the front wings and the hood lines are all different. In my opinion all together very elegant and homogene. After the Paris show this Stelvio was invoiced by the factory on October 17, 1936 to a Mr. Garnier. Amongst the successive owners this Bugatti was also owned by the noted English Bugatti historian Mr. Hugh Conway. Later in her life the T57 Stelvio resided in the USA where this Bugatti benefitted from a comprehensive mechanical restoration, along with new paint, chrome and top. The interior in dark tan leather still is the original upholstery, which has nicely aged and wears a lovely patina. The unique dark purple paintwork is nicely complemented by a subtle red pin striping elegantly complemented with polished aluminium disc wheel covers. The 3,3 liter 8 cylinder in line twin overhead cam engine, still featuring Bugatti's signature, develops 135 BHP which makes this comfortable open Bugatti the perfect long distance prestigeous touring car. Immobilised during several years in the collection of a now recently deceased German enthusiast, this Bugatti will need a little bit of recommission work before the car is ready for much more pleasure in the years to come.
