Bonhams’ banquet of big‑money Bugattis

A veritable banquet of Bugattis is being served up by Bonhams at its auction in Paris on 6th February during Retromobile. The seven pre-war classics – which together could be worth over £10 million – will be the undoubted stars of the sale in the French capital’s Grand Palais, where many of them were first unveiled 80 or more years ago.

Any pre-war Bugatti is special and the magnificent seven amply demonstrate why they hail from a golden age of French car-making. We have picked out our three favourites, a Bugatti for every occasion: a two-seat sports drophead, a two-seat coupe and a four-seat cabriolet.
