This stunning Art Deco Bugatti which was hidden from the Nazis and perfectly preserved in a heated garage for 60 years is tipped to sell for a staggering £3 million.<br />
<br />
The 1938 Bugatti Type 57 is one of just three 'supercharged' examples with the unique streamlined Atalante bodywork made of feather-light aluminum.<br />
<br />
It was given centre-stage as the display car at the Paris Salon in the city's Grand Palais that year.<br />
<br />
When the Nazis invaded in 1939, it was hidden away until after the war when it was kept as a 'sleeping beauty' by an eccentric French recluse at his chateau for decades.
