Chassis: 55206
Completed in the first months of 1932, this early Type 55 was ordered new by prominent Bugatti customer Dr. Kocher, who resided in the south eastern part of France. He had the car clothed by Billeter & Cartier in Lyon. They created an elegant two-seater cabriolet body, finished in black with a green lining and matching interior. Passing through various hands, the one-off Cabriolet was eventually repainted in a two-tone blue. In recent years, the car was completely restored to its original configuration for its current Swiss owner. Chassis 55206 made its post-restoration debut at the Bugatti Club stand during the 2012 Retromobile.
