The Type 57 boasted a rare combination of style and performance that made it one of the most desirable Bugattis. It marked the final and most enduring legacy of Jean Bugatti, the eldest son of “Le Patron,” Ettore Bugatti.
The Type 57 Stelvio Cabriolet was powerful and beautiful, and appealed to the company’s discerning and elite clientele by skilfully exhibiting the firm’s renowned design and engineering prowess. The Type 57 reflected both the maturation of the Bugatti marque and that of Jean Bugatti himself, who talents were finally allowed to bloom fully with minimal interference from his father.
