Long-Lost Bugatti Brescia emerges from Lake Maggiore
Finding an old Bugatti in a barn is one thing. Finding one at the bottom of a lake is another matter entirely. But that's exactly what happened nearly half a century ago when divers came across a sunken Bugatti in Lake Maggiore in northern Italy. But despite the find, the sunken treasure was left there for decades. Research was conducted by historians familiar with the marque, and it was determined to be one of three 1925 Bugatti Type 13 Brescias ordered for Switzerland but abandoned when duty on the car's importation wasn't paid. And this past weekend, divers finally raised the long lost car from its watery grave. Although the car is evidently heavily rusted, it will be auctioned off to benefit the fight against youth violence on part of the Damiano Tamagni Foundation.
