Gooding & Company’s November 7-18 Geared Online | Bugattiana Automobilia will offer one of the world’s most significant collections of Bugatti-themed memorabilia from a distinguished Bugatti enthusiast and collector. The Monday-to-Friday online-only auction will present over 350 lots, including factory records, personal documents from Ettore and Jean Bugatti, and other significant items which have never before been seen or offered for public sale.
Significantly, all lots will be offered without reserve.
The catalog hails from a collector who has owned several Bugatti automobiles and has been collecting since joining the Bugatti Owners’ Club as a teenager in the 1950s. For decades, the consignor worked tirelessly to curate this historically important collection of Bugatti artifacts. One such effort included placing newspaper ads throughout the Alsace region of France—the very heart and soul of the Bugatti marque and legacy. As a result, the consignor met firsthand with the people who responded to the ads in order to not only acquire their memorabilia, but to also engage with their stories and personal experiences with the Bugatti marque and history. Thus, the offerings of Geared Online | Bugattiana Automobilia encapsulate over an entire century’s worth of all things Bugatti.
Following the launch of the online catalog on Monday, October 24, all lots will be available for online bidding via Gooding & Company’s website or mobile app starting Monday, November 7.
