Artcurial catalogue extract :
"Lot 217:
This EB 112 is offered in the most superb condition, not a scrape or even the slightest scratch. The panels are perfectly aligned and the 17 inch wheels make a subtle reference to the Royale's wheels. The leather upholstery is uncreased and the stitching immaculate. Gildo Pallanca Pastor's intense desire to follow in Ettore Bugatti's footsteps comes through strongly and contributes strongly to the charm of this hand built car. Amazingly the car looks new, even though it was built out of 20 year old parts. It comes with its two original black leather suitcases and an umbrella with a handle in the shape of the rampant elephant, like the one sculpted by Rembrandt Bugatti to grace the bonnet of the Royale.
Gildo used the car while he still lived in Monaco and was sometimes spotted driving it in the Principality. The present owner bought it last year. The car starts on the button, drives perfectly and was driven under its own power to the recent Bugatti Festival in Molsheim. This car is a thoroughbred, there are only two of them and we all have to thank Gildo Pallanca Pastor for bringing them to life. It's a masterpiece by one of the greatest designers of the century, it's got one of the most famous names in the history of the automobile and it's got a powerful engine. Well, do you want any more superlatives ? I don't know where you could find more in any one car. "
