Chassis 57593 was originally bought by Col. Godfrey Giles in 1938, a big fan of Bugattis.
The latter having used to baptize his cars ... this copy bore the sweet name of "Suzanne".
His brother Eric designed the coachwork and Corsica did the construction. In 1939 57593 passed to Herman H Harjes who sold it in 1950 to W.A.L. Cook. During the mid 1950’s it crossed the Atlantic owned by A Erwin Goldschmidt and when he died in 1970 it went to Richard Paine who sold it to John Mozart in the mid 1980’s.

When delivered to Giles in 1938 this car was painted a light blue with brown ‘crocodile leather’ supplied by Connelly. It certainly have been ordinary leather imprinted with a crocodile texture, a common practice at the time.

This car may have been restored by John Mozart, but its soul has been left intact. The current dark blue paint fits better now than it did originally, it still reveals its hand built origins.
The new crocodile leather interior has been beautifully executed.
“Nothing is too beautiful. Nothing is too expensive.” So sayeth Ettore Bugatti.
