French carrossier Saoutchik clothed this T26 Record with a unique Coupe Chauffeur body. In a nod to the classic designs of the 1920s and 1930s, it features a removable roof panel for the driver's compartment. The design itself was thoroughly modern with cues also used by other Saoutchik bodies of the period. Almost two years in the making, it was built specifically for the 1950 Paris Auto Salon. Although the lavish machine won the Grand Prix du Salon, it did not find a new owner on the show floor. It was shown again in 1951 and later in the year was finally sold to its first private owner, Yvonne Bozdogan-Brawand from Switzerland. By 1976, the car was reported to be in the United States and at the time was already owned by James Karupka for nearly two decades. He would own the car through to 1989 and it changed hands several times before it was finally submitted to a complete restoration during the early 2010s. Not shown since the work was completed, chassis 100238 was consigned to the 2018 Bonhams Quail Lodge auction.
