The world’s finest vehicles meet once a year at the Concorso d’Eleganza by Lake Como, Italy. But even among the best in the world, there can be only one winner, and this year the honor was bestowed upon a Bugatti Type 57S Vanvooren Cabriolet. It was one of four Bugatti vehicles on display and, as well as winning its class, it was also named ‘Best of Show’.

In 2013, a Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic from 1938 was awarded the coveted honor of being ‘Best of Show’. Owned by the designer Ralph Lauren, the vehicle is one of only two original Atlantics still in existence. Just four vehicles were built, one of which is infamously lost and another of which was restored after being involved in a serious accident. In recent years, the juries were also won over by Bugatti’s Type 57S Sports Tourer from 1937 and a Type 59 Grand Prix from 1934.

Bugatti took the jury and the public by surprise three years ago with the one-off La Voiture Noire. The ultimate grand tourer references Jean Bugatti’s lost Type 57SC Atlantic and brings art deco design into the 21st century. Bugatti won in the ‘Concept Cars and Prototypes’ category with La Voiture Noire in 2019.
