1935 Bugatti Type 35 Ventoux
The Ventoux body style was one of the purest of Jean Bugatti’s design concepts for the Type 57 series, owing much of its style to his dramatic Profilée design for the Type 50. In 1950 this car joined the private Dovaz Collection on a farm near Paris, where it sat in a barn, undisturbed, for almost four decades. The 1986 German photography book, “Sleeping Beauties,” publicized the discovery of the collection, creating unwanted attention for Dovaz who then moved the collection to another hidden location. This car was auctioned in 1993 and restored by Bugatti expert Andre Lecoq.
