1939 Bugatti Type 57C by Vanvooren. Original owner Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, the Prince of Persia and future Shah of Iran, received this striking supercharged Bugatti as a gift from the French government on the occasion of his first wedding. The dramatic body was constructed by Vanvooren of Paris in the style of Figoni & Falaschi, one of the most progressive coachbuilders of the day. Advanced features include fully skirted fenders, a top that conceals beneath a metal panel when down, and a windshield that can be lowered into the cowl by means of a hand crank mounted under the dashboard. The car received a complete restoration in 1983. Owner: Petersen Museum, Los Angeles, CA. At the 2012 Kirkland Concours d'Elegance, LeMayCarMuseum, Tacoma, Washington.
