In this undated image released by Bonhams, an extremely rare 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante, is seen in a garage in Gosforth, England, where it was found by relatives after the death of the owner, an elderly doctor who last used it around 1960. The Bugatti, one of only 17 ever made, is expected to draw a record price when it is auctioned in Paris next month. I have always dreamed of opening some forgotten relative's garage and finding such a thing. It may become the most expensive car sold at auction, perhaps more than 8.7 million. Wow.. "When Harold Carr's nephews and nieces inherited a dusty old lock-up garage from their eccentric uncle their expectations were low."
