A Bugatti Type 46 that sold at auction last spring in Florida for just over $1 million will be back on the block May 25 in Italy. The 1930 “Petit Royale”—as the Type 46 is called, because it looks like a smaller version of the massive Type 41 Royale—will be among roughly 40 collector cars offered during RM Auctions’ Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este sale ( in Cernobbio, Italy. Bugatti chassis number 46208 is equipped with its original engine and cloaked in a re-creation of the Superprofile coupe body designed by Jean Bugatti, the son of the company’s founder, Ettore Bugatti.
