The Bugatti Type 40 was introduced in 1926 as a successor to the Bugatti Brescia. Around 790 Type 40s were built, complete with a 3-valve, 1499cc engine, before the Type 40A was introduced in 1930. Most were supplied with factory bodies either as modest closed tourers or small open roadsters, and the first of the 42 roadsters to be completed was owned by Jean Bugatti himself.

This Type 40, with a factory-built Grand Sport body, was produced in May 1929 for the Bugatti agent in London, Colonel Sorel. After various owners in England, the car was imported to the United States in 1962. It underwent various modifications over time, but in 1979, its then owner, Henry Adamson in Lake Forest, Illinois, restored the car to its original configuration. Its current owner restored it to its original condition.
