Excellent quality and finish.  The Bugatti 57 C, No.1, Winner Le Mans 1939 J-P Wimille - P.Veyron Model Car in 1:18 Scale by Spark

The Bugatti Type 57C, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1939, is a significant and historic racing car. It's known for its exceptional performance and the victory it achieved at the prestigious endurance race.

In 1939, Bugatti entered two Type 57C Tank models in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a famous endurance race in France. These cars were specifically designed to have streamlined bodies and improved aerodynamics, which contributed to their success. Car number 1, driven by Jean-Pierre Wimille and Pierre Veyron, secured the victory for Bugatti, making it a memorable moment in the history of both the Bugatti brand and the Le Mans race.

Bugatti's win in 1939 was particularly notable because it occurred just before World War II, and racing activities were greatly affected by the war in the following years. This victory is a testament to the engineering and racing prowess of Bugatti during that era.
