A look at the inside of the event from the top down gives only a small sense of the scale of how large this is.
Bugatti T44 roadster by Thietart
This Bugatti T44 Roadster was made in 1930 by Thietart. These legendary Bugatti vehicles are known to sell for over $300,000, where for a long time many were common barn finds. Now and days, the T44 Bugatti is more likely found in a collection than a barn.
