Bugatti ‘Brescia’ triples estimate at Artcurial’s Paris sale

At Artcurial's Automobiles sur les Champs 8 sale in Paris, a Bugatti Type 13 ‘Brescia’ well exceeded its 150-250,000 euros estimate, fetching a staggering 834,400 euros...

Slow build

In beautifully original condition and boasting single-family ownership since 1953, the Bugatti mimicked the furore of the frenzied Baillon Collection sale when it crossed the block; head auctioneer Hervé Poulain took bids thick and fast before a gradual build to the final figure. A remarkable car at a remarkable price – that's what you call auction fever.
