1937 Bugatti Type 57SC Sports Tourer
Sale Price: $9,735,000
Auction: Bonhams, Amelia Island
Not often does a supercharged Bugatti Type 57S come up for sale, and this one stands out further with its unique coachwork by Vanden Plas. According to the auction house, this car is “One of the greatest and most collectible cars of the pre-war era.” With a supercharged V8 under the hood, the Type 57SC can hit 120 mph — quite impressive for the 1930s. Bonhams refers to the Type 57S as being “virtually a Grand Prix car in touring car guise.” This example is the most valuable Type 57SC ever sold at auction.
