One of the most coveted and advanced cars at the time, the 1931 Bugatti Type 55 Roadster was a sensational pre-war luxury vehicle meant to appeal to Bugatti’s top clients. Upon first glance, its sleek and beautiful body makes itself known – under which lies the same chassis featured in Type 45 and Type 47 Grand Prix race cars.

Next to this high-performance chassis, under the hood here is twin overhead cam supercharged V8 boasting 130bhp and first debuted at the Paris Art Show during its production year. Much later, and after two refined owners, Type 55 was brought back to life via a marque specialist in 2012. Later going on to win French Cup at The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance afterward. Amazingly enough, it still retains that original chassis and matching numbers engine – making this one sought-after ride with a valuation of over $4 million.
