    The flamboyant owner of Au Faisan Dore Golden Pheasant , a specialist food store in Fribourg, Switzerland, Aellen had taken delivery of his exquisite new Bugatti Type 57 roadster only days before the show and beat 40 competitors to the prize.

    The Aellens were so proud of their win that they saved all their newspaper clippings. This original car was lower than the standard model, with raked steering column and gear lever and the handbrake repositioned. It had a higher rear axle ratio and a two-part dashboard with speedometer and tachometer at each end.

    The bodywork was striking — streamlined with a cut-down v-windshield and twin headrests streaming down to the tail. The bodywork was aluminum, finished in black with a yellow hood and colored flash leading down to the enclosed rear fenders. Aellen ordered a two-seater roadster, like the one built for Monsieur Montfort, which was the pseudonym of Prince Louis Napoleon, a descendant of Napoleon Bonaparte and a Bugatti racing driver.

    It had also been bodied by Worblaufen, for the Geneva Motor Show in March , but without the headrests and with a flat one-piece folding windshield, permitting a convertible top and side-screens to be fitted. It was developed by Jean Bugatti, and it simplified the Miller DOHC drive train that had been appropriated for the Types 50, 51 and 55, substituting a chain of gears at the rear of the engine to drive the camshafts.

    The car would, generally speaking, be bought in two series with four variations: They were Galibier four-door sedan , Ventoux two-door, four-seat coupe , Stelvio two-door, four-seat cabriolet , Atalante two-door, two-seat coupe and Aravis two-door, two-seat cabriolet.

    This, however, does not account for the various special T57s, including the numerous coachbuilders across Europe who created one-offs. It also does not account for the Grand Raid roadster, which was essentially a prototype that preceded the famous 57S. The offering of such a car is not only incredibly rare but tremendously important.

    Both of these rare books will walk an interested party through the development of the Type 57, particularly the prototype examples. Fritz Ramseier began as a master cartwright in Worblaufen, a suburb of Berne in His sons Hans, Ernst and Fritz Jr.

    At least 43 Worblaufen customs are known to exist, mostly in Switzerland. The Aellens kept their roadster until , when they sold it to Chassures Henri, a shoe company in Geneva. The car remained there for 30 years until , when a longstanding American collector and dealer acquired the car from Serre.

    At the time of its discovery, the car required extensive restoration as it had been involved in an accident in previous years that damaged the entire front end. The original sheet metal was removed, and every piece that was original, along with the original wood, was saved.
