In a few weeks, the Monterey 2022 auctions will officially begin. So far, we’ve detailed some great automotive examples to grab. However, as the proverb says, “good things come to those who wait.” So, for those who can keep their bids this month, a 1936 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante is the prize.
With only 17 supposedly built at the time, serious car collectors would be crazy to pass up the chance to own one. From every angle, this silhouette exudes pure art deco beauty. Its sales organization is RM Sotheby’s. They are offering it as one of the lots for the St. Their Moritz on September 9.
Insiders revealed the car will share the stage with other equally desirable classics. There’s a black 1957 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL and a 1965 silver Aston Martin DB Vantage in need of a new owner. However, the star of the show will still be the 1936 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante.
Its design was written by Jean Bugatti, son of the brand of the same name. In addition to the impressive curves, this machine also has a powertrain that is ahead of its time.
A 160-horsepower 3.3-liter inline engine powered the 1936 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante with a top speed of 120 mph. The two-tone paint scheme adorns the exterior of this classic car.
Gloss black covers most of the surface, while a French red curve runs down the side of the 1936 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante. Chrome accents add a dash of silver to the mix. Meanwhile, the coupe’s cabin shows off wood elements on the dashboard and steering wheel. RM Sotheby’s has yet to share more information about the shock.
