For many who have attended the Pebble Beach Concours, this 1998 Best of Show winner, a 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Corsica Roadster owned by John Mozart, stands out. "SC" in this case is short for Supercharged.
The original 1938 owner was Col. G. M. Giles, a British Colonel who commissioned Corsica, a London custom coachbuilder, to build the body on Bugatti chassis 57593 (engine 41S). His brother Eric was responsible for the styling. John Mozart bought the car in the mid 1980s and a two year restoration with the assistance of Mike Hemus was eventually started. The amazing (and original) alligator interior (above left) which was replaced by a light leather at some point in the cars history, was duplicated. Reportedly John Mozart wasn't pleased with the turn signal lights but did not change them for the sake of authenticity.
