Rare 1937 Bugatti Atlante Found in British Garage
January 3, 2009
The nephews and nieces of Dr. Harold Carr were excited to find a rare 1937 Bugatti Atlante in the garage of their recently deceased uncle. The car is amazing because it is only one of 17 in the world and hasn’t been seen in over 50 years. This is one of my favorite cars! The lines and curves are amazing! I can’t wait to see this car restored.
It seems to be a great few years for rare Bugatti garage finds. In May 2007 a 1938 Bugatti Atlante was found in a garage in New York City. This car was auctioned at Christie’s Auction House last year. I love this car and the photos from the New York Times in which the car is in the garage as it was discovered. This Bugatti had also been garaged for over 50 years out of sight.
Here are some more great photographs of Bugatti Atlantes and Atlantics.
