Bugatti Veyron's great-great-grandfather...

Autoblog has this exciting post up today about the "barn find" of the decade. for those of you not aware of what that is, it is the discovery of a classic car that had been thought long destroyed or gone literally found in a barn.

in this case, an original 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante. there were only 17 of these cars made. so, it's really a rare find. it's also in it's original form never having been restored in any way. you can read the entire story here - Barn Find of the Decade: 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante. make sure you check out the full gallery of photos.

after looking at the photo below, try to guess how much this car may be worth. remember, it's great-great-grandson, the Bugatti Veyron, starts at $1.6 million.

ready? the initial guess is that it will go at auction for at least $8.8 Million!
