A rare 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atlante Coupe was discovered in a UK garage and sold recently at auction for $4.4 million USD. The car was the star attraction at a rare auto auction in Paris. Only 17 copies of the rare vehicle were built.

The car was originally owned by Earl Howe, president of the British Racing Drivers Club and later sold passing through the hands of various owners until it was purchased by Dr. Harold Carr in 1955 and then parked in the garage in the early 1960's where it sat until Carr's death.

The car was found still sitting in the garage where Carr parked having not been run in nearly 50 years. Despite the need for a registration, the vehicle was bid to the $4.4 million figure.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
