It is by road that the famous Coupe Napoleon, Ettore Bugatti's personal car, will make its entrance at the Saint-Cloud Elegance Competition.

The Coupe Napoleon is one of the seven Bugatti Royale chassis built between 1926 and 1933 and incontestably the most exclusive car in the world. Admiring its lines is a pleasure; seeing it in motion is a privilege.

The Coupe Napoleon will arrive in Paris the day before the "Saint-Cloud Concours d'Elegance" opens and will certainly be the crowning glory of the event. The Cite de l'Automobile (National Museum Schlumpf Collection ) which owns the Coupe Napoleon, thus joins the ranks of partners of the "Saint-Cloud Concours d'Elegance".

Artcurial, which has backed the "Saint-Cloud Concours d'Elegance" from the outset, will of course welcome the Coupe Napoleon when it graces Paris with its presence.

Pending this event, the team at the prestigious auction house is pleased to announce the first cars registered in the day's auction, scheduled during the "Saint-Cloud Concours d'Elegance": a 1958 Pegaso Z102 Touring, Bugatti Type 40 roadster with compressor, a 1934 two-seater Alfa Romeo A6C 2300 Spider, a 1913 Brasier 15hp limousine, an original saloon in perfect condition, and a first-hand Delage DM with bodywork by Autobineau.
