1935 Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux

One of the joys of living in Southern California is the random opportunity to see gorgeous cars – new and vintage – in the wild. We saw this 1935 Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux a few blocks from the Daily Mirror HQ. As far as we can determine, it lives at the Petersen Automotive Museum and was taken out for a few hours – we’re guessing at the San Marino Motor Classic.

    That is a Bugatti Type 57 that belongs to Bruce Meyer, who does happen to be the founding chairman (and current Vice Chairman) of the Petersen. It’s from his personal collection in Beverly Hills, and did indeed go to the San Marino Motor Classic today!
