When it comes to certain cars, sure, you can look for a machine that presents the nicest available materials and the best craftsmanship but even when faced with all the above, it can be incredibly hard to match up with a vehicle that has a story like this one. Because of the use of certain cars in history, it can be incredibly difficult to find another piece of automotive machinery that can find any way to stack up or compare to a vehicle like this Bugatti G tank, the only one to survive World War II in about most obscure of ways.

In this one, we take a look at the car with the help of tour guide, Rob Ferretti, as he explains it was just how valuable this car was to its owner as, in an attempt to keep Nazi fingers off of it, they decided to bury the machine during the war, sticking it in a tomb of sorts so that the opposition wouldn’t be able to steal it. It’s pretty crazy to think of this thing surviving underneath the surface of the earth for a period of time as a war was going on over top of it and the people who owned it were able to survive the war to eventually find the car once again and take it back up to breathe again int the post-war world.

If you follow along down the video below, you’ll get the entire rundown and with each word out of Rob’s mouth, this piece of automotive history becomes more and more impressive to us. In a day and age where Bugatti seems to be sitting on the namesake of the Veyron as their casual fans roll around in its glory, it’s pretty neat to see the history that existed before that car was even a thought in anybody’s head.
