Description

Offered publically for the first time since over 4 decades, COYS is particularly proud to present this very rare survivor of only a handful remaining Bugatti T 44 FIACRES today. A sister car is in the world renowned known Mullin museum in California.

Delivered new to French Bugatti dealership, Gaston Docime of Paris in 1930, this Bugatti came into the possession of a well-known collector and author of many Bugatti books, Mr Uwe Hucke, in the mid 1960`s. He kept the car until 1977 when he sold the car to Mr. Helmut Schellenberg, the well-known Bugatti racing driver of the 1930`s.

Mr. Schellenberg had the car professionally restored in Germany by the end of the 1970`s at German Bugatti specialist, Feierabend. He kept it until 2005, when it was sold to the now collector and vendor.

Indeed, most of its life, 1965 – 2005, chassis #441141 was in the hands of only two collectors, internationally known by any Bugatti enthusiast the world over.

The Bugatti is presented in excellent condition throughout, a thorough service and inspection was done prior to this sale and the car is described as to be on the button and drive wonderfully.

It is of course registered in the Bugatti register and comes with an ASC passport and German registration documents in the name of Helmut Schellenberg. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a wonderful Bugatti with the provenance to match.
