Notice the special extra front grille?, If its the famous Bugatti built Gordon that would be a bargain!

Was just about to comment on that, can't see the point other than a bit of creative license.  ???

I presume that this is all done and dusted and the seller get a reasonable price as it did not seem to be on offer to anybody else?

The Latest - the owner thinks it's worth a fortune ! it should be at Beaulieu !! Simons mate saw  it behind a broken fence panel this week and i am sure it won't have improved at all . the two who were trying to buy it have given up

What an awful shame i really don't think it will last another winter - why do people do it ??? it really breaks my heart

Its a familiar story! If they want to be assured of it finding its correct market value why don't they just put it in auction rather than letting it rot?
