This is money reported on one of the most incredible barn finds of all time, discovered in North Staffordshire, England. It's a rare, desirable pre-war Bugatti, and it appears to be in amazing condition despite its age and "barn find" status.

This Bugatti Type 57S from 1937 is one of the most sought-after Bugattis ever built. If you know anything about pre-war cars, then you know it really says something.
The "S" in the name stands for "Surbaissé", French for "lowered". Indeed, this sporty, low two-seater reminds us of a channeled hot rod - but far more classy.

The Bugatti Type 57S is powered by a 3.3-liter in-line 8 engine. In its day, this elegant roadster was one of the fastest cars in the world, with a top speed of around 115 mph. That was pretty impressive for the late 1930s.
Incredibly, the car shown here actually represents one of three lightweight factory chassis made in 1936. It could be the only one used as a road car.

Apparently, the previous owner of the car drove it until 1969, at which point the car was kept in a workshop until the owner's death. Now this rare machine, which seems to be in relatively good condition, is being auctioned.
This car is being sold by Bonhams as part of their Legends of the Road sale starting February 19th in London. The bid is expected to exceed $ 5 million.
