Ettore Bugatti would earn a reputation as a wonderfully talented chassis builder. His son, Jean, would earn an equally impressive reputation for the strikingly elegant bodies that graced his father's chassis. One of the best examples of Jean's artistic touch would be the Type 57 Ventoux.

The Ventoux body style was perhaps Jean Bugatti's most expressive and forward-thinking with its narrow nose, grand flowing fenders and steeply-raked windscreen. It seemed like the ultimate expression of what the future held for automotive design.

The first series of the Ventoux Coupe, which would be named after one of the peaks in Alps, would be introduced in 1934. One of the first series Ventoux-bodied Bugatti Type 57s would be chassis 57345.

Bugatti Type 57, chassis 57345, would be one of the Ventoux-bodied cars that would be completed without running boards and would be invoiced on March 14th, 1936. When completed, the car would be sent to Arnaud in Lyon, France for sale to the public.

Finished with the usual Ventoux touches of the flat, uncluttered wooden dash, simple steering wheel and the single-panel leather seats, 57345 would also have the 3.3-liter DOHC eight-cylinder engine with the single Stromberg carburetor helping to produce around 135bhp at 5,000rpm.

Unfortunately, the car's early history is relatively unknown but it would survive the Second World War and would eventually be sold in 1960 in Paris. From there, the Ventoux Type 57 would be bought by J.W. Harrison of Arlington, Virginia, and therefore, would make its way to the United States. Soon after arriving, the car would become registered with the American Bugatti Club.

The car would remain with Mr. Harrison until the early 1970s when it was purchased by David Uihlein. Uihlein would purchase the car and have it sit as part of some collection, however. Instead, 57345 would be a car regularly driven to and from different everyday events and would continue in this capacity well into the late 1990s.

Over the course of its life, the Type 57 Ventoux has been maintained and has undergone a number of necessary cosmetic and mechanical work. Finished in a Black and French Blue livery, the car is a striking thing to behold. Retaining its original motor, 57345 would appear to be highly original in a number of other ways, including its leather interior.

This period correct and highly desirable first series Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux would be offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale, Arizona in 2013. Appearing to be highly original and with its matching engine, this particular Type 57 Ventoux was drawing estimates of between $250,000 and $325,000 prior to auction.

Ask someone to describe a classic pre-war car and it wouldn't be at all surprising if the resulting characterization would look strikingly like a Type 57 Bugatti. Furthermore, show he or she the Ventoux and prepare to hear 'that's it!'

France is famous for many things, art being one of them. And, throughout the early part of the 20th century it was the home to some of the most distinctive and beautiful automobiles the world had ever seen. There was Delage, Talbot-Lago, Delahaye and many others, and yet, eclipsing them all would be a car manufacturer located in Molsheim by the name of Bugatti.

Bugatti's Type 57 chassis would become famous in the 1930s. It would serve as the foundation for many hand-built pieces of mechanical artwork. Chassis 57584 would be just such an example. This Ventoux would be completed in October of 1937 and would be fitted soon thereafter with its Ventoux coachwork.

Records indicate that this chassis was then taken to Paris where it served as the Bugatti demonstrator for the 1937 Paris Auto Show. The car would not been recorded as having been seen on display, and therefore, it is suggested the car was actually used as a practical demonstrator for potential clients.

Following the show, the car would return to the factory and would be used by none other than Pierre Veyron as a demonstrator car. Then, in February of 1938 the car would be registered with a Mr. Bierlein. Things would get a little muddled as a result of the Second World War, but, in 1950, the car would be found in Paris owned by an Albert Hervey. Hervey owned a couple of Type 57 Bugattis at the time and he would end up selling 57584 to American artist, Kenneth Hassrick. Hassrick would be in Europe at the time as a student, but he too would come to own a number of Type 57s.

The car would transfer from Hassrick to W. Hudson Mills shortly after Hassrick arrived back in the United States. While with Mills, 57584 would undergo restoration work. The entire car would be completely rebuilt. Unfortunately, following this restoration there would be a great deal of confusion as to the identity of this particular Bugatti. For years the car would be identified by the chassis plate that had been affixed, which happened to be 57664. This was not correct, but the situation would only be rectified here recently. So, for many years, 57584 would be known as another.

More than a couple of artists would come to own the Bugatti throughout the 1970s and '80s. Then, toward the end of the 1980s, the car would find its way back to Europe where it would remain for more than a few years. It would be during this time the car would be restored to concours quality by Ivan Dutton Ltd. located in Buckinghamshire, England. Work completed, the car would begin to make regular appearances at concours. Back in the United States and the property of Bruce Meyer, the 37 Ventoux would make an appearance at the 1998 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. This would be the first year of the Tour d'Elegance and the Bugatti would be one of those to make that inaugural trip up the coast.

Leaving Meyer's collection in 2007, the Bugatti would end up in the hands of Judge Joseph Cassini III. The Ventoux would take up residence in Cassini's impressive collection for almost half a decade before it passed to its current owner.

Legendary, the Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux draws admirers throughout the generations. This would be reflected heading into the 2015 RM Auctions event in Arizona. Scheduled to cross the block on Thursday, January 15th, the car was drawing estimates from between $800,000 and $1,000,000.

Coachwork: Vanvooren
Chassis Num: 75542
The original Bugatti Type 57 was designed by Jean Bugatti purely as a road-going vehicle, and it is the most celebrated of all non-racing Bugattis. Apart from the three famous Bugatti Atlantics, just three two-door 'factory' built bodies were available - the Ventoux, the Stelvio and the Atalante. The Type 57 could also be ordered with a Galibier four-door body. The Type 57C was introduced in 1937 and was powered by a 3.3-liter straight-eight engine with dual overhead camshafts, a Roots-type supercharger and Stromberg carburetors developing over 175 horsepower. A few European coachbuilders built extravagant and flowing bodies for the Type 57C, including Vanvooren of Paris, who built this convertible roadster body in 1937.

Chassis Num: 57617
Sold for $902,000 at 2014 RM Auctions.
This 1937 Bugatti Type 57C, serial number 57617, was built by Van Vooren and sold new to Monsieur Le Depute Jean Gapiaud of Paris. Originally constructed as cabriolet drop-head, it was modified by Van Vooren prior to delivery.

The car arrived at Van Vooren's shop on November 25th of 1937, to be dressed with a four-seater open body, which was built to design number 7495. The original owner was Jean Gapiand, the proprietor of a fence company and a local politician. Gapiand traded his Type 57 Ventoux, chassis number 57364, against the purchase of the new car, with the total cost being 70,000 French francs plus the value of the Ventoux. He took delivery of the completed car on January 31, 1938.

Gapiand sold this car in April of 1939, in favor of a 4.25-Litre Bentley. The Bugatti then moved to Paris, where it was registered as 2492 RM 7 until 1956. It was reported that the body and chassis were taken apart and hidden in Spain during World War II, and after the war, were brought back together.


Its first recorded post-war owner, Jean-Claude George, was a chemical engineer and sports car enthusiast who also owned a 300 SL Gullwing. During George's ownership, the car was serviced by Bugatti specialist Roger Teillac in Paris.

On April 9, 1956, George re-registered the Bugatti as 915 EV 75, due to his intention to sell it. It passed through two other known owners before being sold to Jean Serre, of Montebeliard, whose family handled many Bugattis during the 1950s and 1960s. Presumably, by this point, the original Vanvooren coachwork had been transferred to another chassis or lost, and the car emerged from the Serre hoard in the mid-1990s as a bare chassis. The car was brought to America in 1999 and into the care of Malcolm Pray. It was restored by Alan Taylor of Escondido, CA with the work being completed in 2006.

This Bugatti is powered by a 3.3-liter (198.8 cubic-inch) straight-eight engine, with dual overhead camshafts, a Roots Type supercharger, and Stromberg carburetors, developing 175 horsepower. The vehicle has a four-speed manual transmission, Rudge wire wheels with 18x5.50 inch tires, and a top speed of 120 mph.

Total production was 630.

The Bugatti Type 57 chassis with its 117.5-inch wheelbase and 170 horsepower straight 8-cylinder engine, lent itself to some of the most beautiful automobiles ever designed. It has won its class at Amelia Island, and Best of Show at both the Greenwich and Burn Foundation concours.

Chassis number 57617 has retained its original engine, number 16C, and supercharger, number 6S; while the gearbox, 38C, is from chassis number 57726, a supercharged Letourneur et Marchand Cabriolet. It is believed that the gearbox was exchanged in the 1950s, when the car was undergoing service in the Teillac garage.

The Bugatti Type 57 was displayed at the 1934 Paris Automobile Salon where it was a highlight of the event. The car was created as a replacement for the Type 49. The Type 57 was powered by a 3257cc engine that had a 72mm bore and a 100mm stroke. There was a multi-plate clutch and a four-speed manual gearbox. The car rode on semi-elliptic leaf springs in the front and quarter-ecliptics in the rear.

Improvements were made to the series during its lifespan, including hydraulic brakes in 1938. Sporting derivates included the 57S and the supercharged 57C.

From the factory, bodies came in the style of Ventoux, Galibier, and Atalante Coupes. Gangloff was tasked with creating the Stelvio Coupes. The Ventoux body style had two-doors and in 2+2 configuration. The interior was art-deco and the front had a raked windshield. The body was aerodynamic, and many of the features followed this form. The headlamps were built into the rounded, flowing fenders and there was a long and louvered bonnet.

This 1937 Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux Coupe is equipped with the desirable tachometer option. It is finished in two-tone tan and brown livery. Under the bonnet is a flexibly mounted engine, a feature introduced in 1936.

The car has been treated to a complete restoration, including the vehicles mechanical components. Though the restoration was done a while ago, it is still in excellent condition. The vehicle is very original with matching number components.

Bugatti Type 57 with chassis number 57614 was sold new on April 3rd of 1937 to Paul Pernod through an agent Montaigne as a Ventoux Coupe with engine number 429.

This car is a former Blackhawk Collection vehicle, and was once in the collection of noted Bugatti collector William B. Ruger. This car was offered for sale at the 2006 Bonhams & Butterfields auction held at the Quail Lodge in Carmel, California where it was estimated to sell between $265,000 - $300,000. At the conclusion of the auction, the car was left unsold.

After the 2006 Bonhams & Butterfield auction, the car was restored to its original livery, Oxblood with tan hides and matching Oxblood Wilton carpets. This was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $450,000 - $550,000. As the gavel feel, the lot was sold for a high bid of $412,500 including buyer's premium.

In 2008 the car returned to auction, this time to RM Auctions 'Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook' where it was estimated to sell for $475,000-$575,000. Bidding reached $390,000 but was not enough to satisfy the reserve. The car was left unsold.

Atalante Coupe
Coachwork: Gangloff
Ettore Bugatti was an Italian who lived nearly all his life in France. Raised by a family of artists, he was a greatly gifted and very proud man who was indifferent to any opinion, save his own.

The Type 57 was designed entirely by Ettore's son, Jean Bugatti. They were built from 1934 to 1940 and approximately 710 examples were completed. This car carries a straight-eight cylinder, double overhead cam engine producing 140 horsepower and producing a top speed of nearly 100 MPH. It was purchased, sight unseen from a French Dealer, Jean De Dobbeleer and has remained in the current owner's collection ever since.

It is a Type 57 Normale Atalante Coupe, of which 17 were produced. Robert Benoist, a driver on the Bugatti factory team, originally owned the car. In 1940, Benoist was a member of the French Resistance and made a famous high speed cross country escape from the Nazis in this car. He was later captured and executed.
Atalante Coupe
Coachwork: Gangloff
Chassis Num: 57641
Continually seeking ways to cheat the wind, French Designers developed a practical approach to aerodynamics in the 1930's. Crafted prior to the development of the wind tunnel and computer aided design, they accomplished their magic with the use of rounded edges, integrated fender lines, angled windscreens and lowered rooflines.

The Bugatti Type 57 was an entirely new design under the direction of Le Patron's talented son, Jean Bugatti. Production began in 1934 and continued until 1940. Apart from the later Aravis cabriolet, the Atalante was the rarest style of standard coachwork fitted to the Type 57; only 37 examples were produced between 1937 and 1939.

This car is a 57C 'Atalante' (Series 2) and was delivered to the Joussy Family of Paris on May 1st of 1937. The Joussy family shoed the car at multiple Concours events, and hill climbs and they participated in the Corsica Trials multiple times between 1938 and 1958. The coachwork is Gangloff and it features the 'roll back top', golfing compartment and fitted luggage. The car's straight eight cylinder engine is supercharged and produces approximately 210 horsepower.

The car was sold to Slumberger Collection in 1959 and spent almost 50 years in their private garage in Paris before being acquired by the current owner.
Atalante Coupe
Designer: Jean Bugatti
Powered by an advanced 3.3-liter twin-cam straight-eight engine, the Type 57 Bugatti was a fast, comfortable touring car. The supercharged version, known as the Type 57C, was introduced in 1937 and built for two years. Ettore Bugatti's son Jean significantly influenced Type 57 coachwork and was responsible for designing some of the most elegant Type 57s produced, including the rakish Atalante coupe.

The Bugatti Type 57 was both beautiful and powerful and provided cash-flow for the Bugatti Company during a difficult economical time in history. It was introduced in 1934 and quickly grew a reputation for low noise and vibration from the engine. The engine is a 3.3-liter engine capable of producing 135 horsepower. There were four-bodystyles offered and their names were in honor of the Alps mountain peaks, the Galibier, Stelvio and Ventoux. The Ventoux body style had seating for four and two doors. Its design, such as raked windshield, was borrowed heavily from the Type 50. All of the Ventoux bodystyles were created in-house, by Jean Bugatti. Most of the Stelvio bodystyles were outsourced to custom coachbuilders.

A second series was introduced in 1936 and featured a redesigned chassis which accommodated a more flexible engine mounting system.

The 1937 Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux was offered for sale at the 2006 RM Auction in Monterey, CA where it was estimated to sell between $400,000-$500,000. Since new, it has been treated to a body-off restoration to concours quality. The work was done by Ivan Dutton Ltd of England for the cost of $450,000. It was shown at the 1998 Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance and was awarded the first ever 'Elegance in Motion Trophy' by the judges.

On auction day the vehicle was sold for $467,500 including buyer's premium.

It was later brought to the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $450,000 - $550,00. The lot was sold for $528,000 including buyer's premium.

Many manufacturers during this time produced multi-purpose vehicles that could be driven to a race track, raced, and then driven home. The Bugatti Type 57, however, was solely a road-going vehicle and is considered the most celebrated of all non-racing Bugattis. Even though the Type 57 was strictly a road-going vehicle, a racing version was created for the 1937 24-Hours of Le Mans race. This vehicle, based on the Type 57S chassis and named the 57G, won the race. A supercharged version was created for the 1939 Le Mans race and also was victorious. This is the legacy of the Bugatti heritage and the quality and innovative designs that were truly masterpieces in all respects.

In 1934, the Type 57C entered the scene, a project headed by Jean Bugatti, the son of Ettore Bugatti. The vehicle centered around refinement while focusing on the values that had made Bugatti successful.

Three 'factory' bodies were available and consisted of the Ventoux, a two-window and four window version, the Stelvio, and the Atalante. All of the Atalante bodies were produced and all were done in-house. The Atalante was named after peaks in the Alps and is one of the most exclusive bodystyles ever produced by Bugatti.

The Type 57 could also be ordered with Galibier four-door bodies. Ealier versions of the Galibier bodies had suicide-opening front doors with no pillar. Later versions had suicide-opening front doors and rear doors hung in the traditional fashion. The front and rear doors would share a common pillar.

Jean designed an indepenent front suspension to aide in the handling of the vehicle. This was not popular with Ettore Bugatti and had the traditional Bugatti front axle installed.

A 3.3 liter, twin-cam, straight-eight engine was used to power this vehicle. Even with the heavy saloon bodies, the engine could propel the vehicle to a speed of around 95 mph. A Roots-type supercharger was later added and the vehicle was given the designation 57C. The supercharger was quiet and provided between three to four pounds of boost pressure. The addition of the supercharger increased the horsepower rating to 175.

The Type 57S version was a 'sportier' version of the Type 57. The chassis was shorter, with the rear axle running through the frame. A slightly tuned engine with higher compression and a dry sump lubrication helped increase the performance of the car. The front and rear axles received de Ram shock aborbers, replacing the Hartford Friction dampers.

The Type 57SC was a combination of the 57C and 57S. The engine produced between 200 and 220 horsepower.

On August 11, 1939 while testing a Type 57C tank-bodied racer near Molsheim, Jean Bugatti was killed. This was the same day as the start of the 2nd World War, which inevitably meant that the race Jean was preparing the vehicle for would never be run.

Ettore Arco Isidoro Bugatti was born in Milan, Italy in 1881. His father, Carlo, was a furniture designer of some fame. The father's brother, Rembrandt, was a gifted sculptor of animals. When he was old enough, Ettore attended the Brera Academy of Art where he studied sculpture. Soon, he turned his attention to mechanical endeavors.

The first Bugatti motor car was built in 1899 though the first vehicle to bear his name was the Type 13 of 1910. Power came from a four-cylinder, eight-valve engine. The 1913 the radiators became more rounded and in the shape of a horse shoe.

The company's first eight-cylinder engine production car was introduced in 1922 and dubbed the Type 30. The engine had a single overhead camshaft and displaced two liters. The car had a drum brakes, solid axles and leaf springs on all four corners.

The Type 35 in all sequences, the A, B, C, and T, were some of Bugatti's early examples that made the marque famous. The Type 57 introduced in 1934 and continued in production until 1940. They were powered by a 3257cc straight-eight engine with double overhead camshafts that produced between 130 and 140 horsepower. There were four road-going versions of the 57 and these were the Type 57, Type 57C, Type 57S, and Type 57SC. The Type 57C was a supercharged version while the Type 57S was a sporty version based on a short and lower wheelbase. The Type 57SC was a combination of the 57S and 57C. A variety of body-styles were offered throughout the years.

The engine rested in a ladder-type frame and matted to a four-speed manual gearbox. The front had a tubular axle with the suspension comprised of longitudinally mounted semi-elliptic leaf springs. The rear axle was suspended in place by a pair of quarter-elliptic leaf springs. The early versions of the vehicle had cable-operated drums on all four wheels. Later versions were upgraded with Lockheed hydraulic brakes with twin master cylinder, which first appeared in 1938.

The Type 57 and its variants were intended for road going use. However, many made their way onto the racing circuit. Lord Howe drove a Type 57 to a third place finish in the 1935 Tourist Trophy. A Type 57G won the Monthlhery and Reims race in 1936. In 1937, Jean-Pierre Wimille and Robert Benoist drove a Bugatti to victory at LeMans.

Many of the cars were clothed by prominent coachbuilders such as Figoni, Van Vooren, Corsica, and James Young. Most of the chassis were bodied by the factory with coachwork in the style of Jean Buggatti. The catalog bodies included two versions of the Ventoux Coupe, the Galibier four-door sedan, the Stelvio cabriolet, Atalante, and Atlantic. The Atlantic and Atalante were constructed in two-door coupe configuration. Gangloff, a Swiss coachbuilder, was tasked with clothing most of the factory bodies.
