The 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic from the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, California, wins Best of Show honors at the fourth annual Arizona Concours d’Elegance at the Arizona Biltmore resort. The magnificent handbuilt car, with prominent rivets running along its fenders and down its spine, is owned by Peter and Merle Mullin and Rob and Melani Walton.
Warner Hall, a senior docent from the Mullin Automotive Museum and the Bugatti’s caretaker at the concours, stated “We didn’t want to count on anything, especially in a field (of cars) this fabulous. This is such an amazing event, and there are some really amazing cars here.”
The Atlantic had won the special class of Cars of Ettore and Jean Bugatti, which included eight spectacular examples of Bugatti artistry and performance, including three historic 1920s Grand Prix cars once raced by famous women drivers across Europe.
