90-Year-Old Bugatti Sets a Record

Posted on July 14th, 2015 by Goldman Buyer

A 1925 Bugatti Type 13 “Brescia” was hidden in a garage in Oigny, France since 1966. It was recently auctioned at the “barnfind auction of the century” for $951,216. It was estimated to sell for somewhere between $165,000 and $275,000.

The auction at Artcurial Motorcars’ Automobiles sur les Champs took place in Paris and featured 60 rare, untouched cars. The collection in total fetched $28.5 million, with a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spider being the top lot (sold for $18.45 million).

The Type 13 Bugatti Brescia is the original model, and the company’s first road car. 475 were built, but less than 10 are believed to remain in existence. This particular car was original and in relatively good condition for being 90 years old. It sold for more than double the highest price ever paid for the model.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
