The Bugatti Type 57 was introduced in 1934 and continued in production until the outbreak of war in September of 1939. It was built at Bugatti's Molsheim factory. The Bugatti Type 57 grew in size and weight over its predecessor but its twin-camshaft engine provided higher horsepower rating and excellent performance. The vehicles were never regarded as suitable racers but rather luxurious sport tourers.

The 3257 cc (3-liter) engine was new featuring five-bearing camshafts. Helical gears drove the twin overhead camshafts. The single symmetrical casting provided hemispherical combustion chambers. The gearbox was also new and mounted directly to the engine by a conventional bell-housing containing a normal single-plate clutch.

Bugatti's chief designer was Joseph Walter and Jean Bugatti worked closely with him. The first vehicle to wear coachwork by Jean was in 1931 on the Type 55 Roadster. Prior to 1927 most, if not all, of the coachwork was outsourced to custom coachbuilders. From the early 1930's the coachbuilding process was brought in-house. The Type 57 was offered as a Galibier four-door saloon, Ventoux two-door coupe, and the Stelvio cabriolet. The Stelvio body-style was constructed by coachbuilders Gangloff of Colmar. If requested by clients, Bugatti did offer a rolling chassis which could be finished by custom coachbuilders of their choosing and constructed to their own tastes and requirements.

The 1936 Bugatti Type 57 Stelvio finished in two-tone blue and coachwork by Gangloff was offered for sale at the 2006 RM Auction in Monterey, CA where it was expected to sell between $450,000-$525,000. It's first owner, M. Soler, purchased the car in February of 1936. The 'B' on the back of the vehicle signifies its nationality for European roads.

It has been in the posession of several well known collections such as the DeDobbeleer, Gene Cesari and Juli Santo to name but a few.

Since new the vehicle has been treated to a body-off restoration. It has a gray leather interior with a wood dash and a full set of Jaeger gauges. The top is black cloth. At auction the vehicle was sold, netting $396,000.

In 2008, Type 57 Stelvio with coachwork by Gangloff returned to the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $500,000 - $600,000 and carried a reserve. A high bid of $325,000 was not enough to satisfy the vehicles reserve. The lot was left unsold.

In 2009, it was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island Auction presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $350,000-$450,000. The lot failed to sell after achieving a high bid of $240,000. Bidding had begun at $100,000, then increased by amounts of $20,000 until it reached $200,000. Bidding then rose by increments of $10,000 until it reached $230,000. From here, bidding increased by increments of $5,000, until it had reached its pinnacle of $240,000. The lot was not sold.
