About this deal
Our first glimpse of this car came from readers who alerted us – more than once – to an ad that appeared in Hot Rod Magazine in July, 1960. You can see this ad below – a nicely built fiberglass sports car – futuristic in design: Mottram, James. "Interview: Francis Ford Coppola on the film he couldn't refuse".

Schumacher, Michael. Francis Ford Coppola: A Filmmaker's Life. New York: Three Rivers Press, 1999. ISBN 0-609-80677-7. What a fantastically original design – futuristic in nature with design features that make it look more like a concept car than a sports car. I had to find out more – and you know me gang….I did.
Boy, what a frustrating film to watch....even though it is very good and has been a part of my collection for a number of years now. Still, it's hard to see the good guy, the little guy, beaten up by the big guys. Here's one story where Goliath beats David. As mentioned, it's maddening to watch at times, to hear lies and false charges brought against a man who had the right ideas about car safety and engineering and was way ahead of his time.

Well, the funniest was Marc Newson, the industrial designer, who has this incredible, all-original 1933 Bugatti Type 59. When I interviewed him, he was in Greece, and he said, “Listen, the car is outside London being stored. You can go anytime and shoot it.” So I fly to London, organize a taxi service to schlep me out to the farm where it was stored … and nobody told them I was coming. The owner of the farm had broken his arm, and this Bugatti was buried in the garage, surrounded by all these other priceless cars. I said, “We gotta get the Bugatti out of here!”
