1933 Bugatti type 57 Galibier

The Bugatti Type 57 was presented to the Mondial de l'Automobile de Paris (Paris World Motor Show) in October 1933 as a successor for the Bugatti Type 49.  It was produced in a number of different bodies; the Galibier was the first.
It used a Bugatti Type 49 chassis, but its mechanics were more advanced with an 8-cylinder in line engine of 3.257 litres with a double overhead cam head producing 135 hp at 4500 rev/min (140 hp from 1935) for 155 km/h.
