This well documented car chassis 46293, still fitted with its original engine (no. 157) was the 18th of 35 cars to leave the factory at Molsheim in 1930.

The chassis was ordered on the 4th April 1930 by a provincial Dutch Bugatti agent approximately 35 miles south east of Amsterdam.

The first owner commissioned Dutch coachbuilders Veth and Son (Veth et Zoon) of Arnhem to produce a faux cabriolet in the style of his previous model.

At the request of a very good customer Alpine Eagle sourced and took delivery of this magnificent motorcar. Soon after delivery Alpine Eagle were commissioned to carry out a total and most comprehensive restoration.

Upon completion in April 2010 the car was exhibited at the Bugatti owners’ club “La Vie en Bleu” event at which it won the Concours in supreme style.

At the Bugatti Garden Party in 2011 the car was also rewarded with a second Concours winning trophy.
