Van Rijswijk Bugatti T49 Drophead Coupe #49570 1934
Van Rijswijk Bugatti T49 Drophead Coupe #49570 1934
8.0/10 rating (2 votes)


This is the last Type 49 constructed by the factory in 1933 and was sold new to Mr. Lagerweij by the Dutch Bugatti importer van Ramshorst. The bodywork was commissioned to Van Rijswijk coachbuilders in The Hague, who created this wonderful 3-position drophead coupe.

This car was presented at the 1934 edition of the RAI, Amsterdam Motor Show. The car remained in Holland all its life. The coachwork was slightly modified after the war.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
