A rare 1937 Bugatti Type 57SC Atalante Coupe sold for $7.92 million at Gooding & Co.’s auto auction during the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California over the weekend
With its streamlined styling, low-slung chassis and supercharged engine, the Type 57SC Atalante is one of the most desirable Bugattis.
It was designed by Jean Bugatti as a two-seater sports coupe and became the rarest of the four different body styles offered at Carrosorie Bugatti : only seven were manufactured.
The Bugatti Type 57 was solely a road-going vehicle and is considered the most celebrated of all non-racing Bugattis.
Though It is the highest price ever paid for an automobile at auction in the U.S.A.
A few months ago, British radio host, Chris Evans, set the world record for the highest price ever paid for a vintage car, when he paid $10,894,900 for a 1961 Ferrari California Spyder at RM Auction’s second annual “Ferrari Leggenda e Passione” auction in Maranello, Italy.
