Melansir CNN, seri mobil yang termasuk diburu kolektor mobil langka ini bakal dilelang oleh rumah lelang Bonhams. Pihak rumah lelang menyebut, mobil ini ditemukan di bengkel milik almarhum Bill Turnbull, pemilik sebelumnya yang berada di kawasan Staffordshire, Inggris.

Bugatti Type 57S sebenarnya merupakan hasil restorasi dari seorang insinyur bernama Bill Turnbull. Sebelumnya mobil ini telah mati selama 50 tahun dan baru hidup dan terawat lagi setelah dibeli Turnbull.

Melansir Zing, Bugatti Type 57S sendiri merupakan mobil yang produksinya dibatasi hanya 42 unit saja pada era 30-an. Bersama dengan Type 35 dan Type 57C Atlantic, Type 57S adalah salah satu garis ikonik Bugatti pada tahun 1930-an dengan sederet kemenangan Grand Prix.

Menariknya mobil ini begitu terawat dengan baik. Cat hitam pada eksterior dan krom tetap tampil berkilau meski telah berumur puluhan tahun. Yang menjadi ciri khas dari mobil ini adalah sasisnya, yakni sama dengan milik mobil balap Bugatti Works 57G Tank yang meraih penghargaan Grand Prix 1936.

Direktur Bonhams Sholto Gilbertson mengatakan, saat pertama kali dikembangkan, Bugatti Type 57S merupakan model paling canggih saat itu. Bahkan, seri ini disebut sebagai mobil tercepat dan paling eksklusif yang bisa dibeli saat itu.
