Very Rare 1925 Bugatti Type 22 Brescia Roadster Brought Back To The Surface After Laying AT THE BOTTOM OF A LAKE For 73 Years!!!

There are a couple of reasons why somebody would throw a car in the lake, but this reason we find most interesting. The owner threw in the water this 1925 Bugatti Type 22 Brescia Roadster, because he didn’t want to pay the tax bill.

The tax bill was larger than the total money that the car was worth, so he thought better to destroy it than to own it. As the journalists write, this car, the 1925 Bugatti Type 22 Brescia Roadster was owned by the legendary driver Rene Dreyfus, but he lost it in a drunken poker game late in the night.

The car was won by the playboy, Adolbert Bode, who after winning the car in the poker game, wanted to go home with it. But the customs at the border of Switzerland required that duty fees should be paid for the import, but he didn’t have any money in his pocket, so he left the car at the border so the customs officers will dispose of it.

They decided to roll it in the lake, that’s where this story for the 1925 Bugatti Type 22 Brescia Roadster ends.

However, in July, 2009 the car was lifted from the lake and put up for auction. The winner at the auction was a museum where the car was placed for display.
