British coach-builder Corsica clothed eight Type 57 S Bugattis, and this is the second of two fitted with a four-seater tourer body. It was delivered as a rolling chassis to the London Bugatti agent on March 8, 1937. It was then dispatched to Corsica Coachworks for the body to be fitted. Once completed, it was delivered to its first owner, Maurice Fox-Pitt Lubbock, in London. Lubbock was a close friend of Jean Bugatti and regularly used the four-seater Bugatti. Sadly, he forced to sell the Type 57 S after a decade of ownership as he became the president of Rolls-Royce. During his ownership, Lubbock had a Roots-type supercharger fitted, upgrading the car to Type 57 SC specifications. The next custodian only owned the car for a few years, and it was sold to the United States in 1950. One of the next owners was Walter Stocklin, who had the car fitted with a Grand Prix style body. Fortunately, the Corsica body had survived and long time owner Judge John North finally reunited the original chassis and four-seater tourer coach-work in 1998. Shortly thereafter, it was sold and then first passed to General William Lyons and then the Blackhawk Collection. The most recent custodian consigned the rare Bugatti to headline the 2019 RM Sotheby's Amelia Island sale.
