Bugatti T57 VuTotal by Labourdette 1936 What a delight for me having the pleasure to handle the sale of this totally original Bugatti! Why? Let me summarize the qualities of this Bugatti T57 for you in this way: - Sold new in 1936 as a Two-Light coach Ventoux body by carrosserie Bugatti and immediately modified by Labourdette in the spectacular VuTotal + numerous additional body-styling modifications. Signed on both doors with the Labourdette 'logo' which is a hand painted triangular flag. - Only 3 Bugatti T57 VuTotal were ever produced, which all 3 are totally different from styling. One in restored condition, chassis 57457, although with a different styling is exhibited at the Musée national de l'Automobile in Mulhouse. The second one, this one, in totally original but fully operational condition. The whereabouts of the 3-rd T57 VuTotal are not known. - Only 2 owners, beer-brewers in Alsace and friends of Ettore, before WWII. After WWII, a couple of owners who didn't drive the Bugatti amongst which in 1984 Mr. Francis Aldabe, who again didn't drive 57399 very much. Finally in 2006 my Brussels based customer bought the T57 VuTotal directly from a French collector. - From new this T57 has covered only 34.000 Km and is totally original! The engine was dismantled and completely overhauled by a Bugatti specialist. Everything still in standard measurements! - Original paint, leather, carpets, headlining, interior wood decoration panels, chrome, etc... - No play at all on doorhinges, rear axle & propshaft, steering, gear selection, etc... as could be expected on a 34.000 Km from new Bugatti. - Runs and drives perfectly. An amazing pleasure to experience the 'very close to new' condition on this Bugatti T57! This Bugatti T57 VuTotal comes with actual Belgian registration documents and a history file referring to the previous French owners.
