A 1925 Bugatti Type 22 Brescia that spent 70 years at the bottom of a lake in Italy has found a new home in California. Though looking more than a tad weary from the years of neglect, its haunting beauty still shines through at the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxford where it finds a permanent home.

The Museum celebrated its grand opening April 15 and exhibits both restored and unrestored European marques. (See related article).

Below are photos from the Mullin Automotive Museum photo archives showing recovery efforts of the Bugatti and the current Museum display.
