The Bugatti Type 57 is an iconic car in the auto industry. Most cars of this type currently have resale prices of up to millions, even tens of millions of dollars. The Bugatti Type 57 Roadster Grand Raid Usine was the inspiration for the Hypercar Bugatti Mistral model.

The Type 57 Roadster Grand Raid Usine is the only model known to exist. Announced in October 1934, this car was designed to participate in various races. That’s why the body of the car is made from lightweight aluminum but is very firmly reinforced.

The car has a V-shaped windshield design, aerodynamic headrests and elongated fenders that add to the vehicle’s aerodynamics. The car was also structurally revised with the controls and seating position pushed back to the rear of the car compared to the normal Type 57.

Interestingly, the name Usine has never been used as an official Bugatti name. This car has a distinctive yellow-black paint color – Ettore Bugatti’s favorite color. This car was joined in Paris-Nice by Pierre Veyron, whose name was used for Bugatti’s famous Hypercar model. This classic racing car also won the Chavigny hill climb event in 1935 and this car is a real part of the history of the development of the automobile industry.

Bugatti President Christophe Piochon said: “The Bugatti Type 57 Roadster Grand Raid Usine is an exceptional Bugatti legacy in every aspect and embodies everything Bugatti stands for in the 21st century. engineered for performance and engineered with the highest standards of craftsmanship and luxury. This is a luxury sports car and the inspiration for modern Bugatti cars.”

Today, this iconic car is still kept in the Louwman Museum in The Hague. The museum was founded in 1934, at the same time this car model was launched in the past.
