1925 Bugatti Brescia Lake Find Watercolour

1925 Bugatti Brescia Lake Find
A5 Watercolour

This is a watercolour sketch of the Lake Maggiore Bugatti. This rare 1925 Bugatti Brescia 22 Roadster was retrieved from Lake Maggiore in Switzerland in 2009 after being at the bottom of the lake for 70 years.
Earlier this year it fetched an incredible €260,500 at auction. "The winning bidder – a European collector representing the Peter Mullin Collection in California – will show the car in its present condition in his museum, whereas the underbidder – an American – had intended to restore the car.”
