A 1934 vintage Bugatti Type 59 Sport has sold at auction for a record-breaking £9.1 million. Thought to be the most expensive Bugatti ever to be sold at auction.
French racing driver René Dreyfus won the 1934 Belgium Grand Prix in the car, before selling it to King Leopold III of Belgium in 1938.
The car’s had many owners throughout its lifetime, but amazingly has been kept in it’s original condition.
We spotted this Teal Car in a local car park recently. Teal Cars are incredibly high-end replica’s, inspired by the original Bugatti. It’s easy to see why Teal Cars are so popular – not everyone has a cool £10m to spend on a classic car!
We always have our eyes peeled to spot classic on our travels. This week we spotted these delightful vehicles.
Firstly there’s this very intriguing Austin, we’d love to know more about her history, she looks like she’s had a wonderful life full of lovely road trips!
Our beady eyes also spotted this 1989 Jaguar sitting pretty in our carpark.
This unusual Teal car was also spotted this week. Inspired by Bugatti, these replicas don’t set you back £500,000 like a real 1920’s Bugatti would. Even if not quite the original, seeing one of these lurking in a local car park is still a treat for the eyes!
