A 1925 Bugatti Brescia, recently discovered in a barn, will be sold at Artcurial’s Automobiles sur les Champs sale on 22 June
After it was discovered in a French barn, untouched for a period of more than 40 years, Artcurial will offer an extremely rare 1925 Bugatti Brescia at its June 22 Automobiles sur les Champs sale. Thought to be one of just 12 remaining examples, estimates place it at €150,000-€250,000.
Among the list of previous owners is well-known Bugatti enthusiasts Bernard Terrillon, before it was sold the current owner in 1953. While the family sold off three other Bugattis in the 1970s, it held onto this car.
The original Maron, Pot et Cie from Levallois-Perret body sits on the standard short-wheelbase chassis and represents a unique opportunity, as the car has never been restored and is 100 per cent present and correct.
Chassis 2628 will go under the hammer at the Paris based auction on June 22, along side a number of other rare and interesting classic cars.
