Coupe
Chassis #: 57511
Engine # 17S
Sold for $7,920,000 at 2008 Gooding & Company.
Robert Eonnet, a member of the French ski team, a bobsledder, and a sportsman, ordered this car on November 4th of 1936. It was delivered on February 25th of 1937 and, at the time, was finished in two-tone blue with pigskin and beige cloth interior. The car was in Eonnet's care for only a short time; it was sold about a year later and from there, would pass through several owners during the 1930s and the 1940s. The ownership during this period is not known.

In April of 1951, the car was registered to Count Jacques Teste de Merian Roquevaire of Lyon in Paris. A little over a year later, it was acquired by Yves de la Motte Montgoubert, who sold it in the winter of 1952 to Jean Martin. Marin sold it to Bugatti dealer Jean de Dobbeleer in Brussels in 1957. The following year it was sold to Charles S. Hascall.

At some point in the cars history, it was upgraded to Type 57SC specifications at the factory by either Martin or de Dobeller, and prior to Hascall's acquisition.

Hascall, a US Navy doctor stationed in Yokosuka, Japan, had the 57SC shipped to him. While in his care, the car was painted red. When Hascall returned to the US, the car was came with him. It was serviced, repaired, and had an engine rebuild by Bunny Phillips, around the same time it was re-painted using a Rolls-Royce color scheme of 'smoke and sage' green. On June 29th of 1974, the car was sold through Bunny Phillips to Dr. Peter and Susan Williamson.

The body is number, which is stamped all over the car. It is a very original car that still has the same side window glass that was installed in Molsheim in 1937. The tan leather interior is gently wore and the paint has minor cracks at the stress points.

In 2008, this extremely rare Type 57SC Atalante Coupe was brought to the Gooding & Company auction held in Pebble Beach, CA. This was the highlight of the auction and is possibly the most original Type 57SC Atalante left in existence. It was sold for a staggering $7,920,000, including buyer's premium.
