Custom Benz Diesel: 1934 Bugatti Type 59

I know this next car is a home-built creation, and we are supposed to shun these things for actual OEM-built machines…but this is rad. It has a great Bugatti aesthetic with a turbocharged Mercedes-Benz OM617 inline-5 diesel and an external brake lever. The asking price is a smidge on the high side, but I love the concept. Find this 1934 Bugatti Type 59 offered for $19,000 in Burbank, CA via faceblank bobsuruncle.
