BUGATTI has been at the pinnacle of the automotive industry for over 110 years, creating the world’s most powerful and luxurious automobiles from its home in Molsheim, France. Every car crafted since the company was founded by Ettore Bugatti in 1909 is praised for its comfort, drivability, design, technology and reliability and desired by automotive connoisseurs from around the world. In the 1920s the French brand became known for its racing successes mainly with the flagship models Type 13 and Type 35 and their derivatives. Parallel to the racing successes the brand’s portfolio broadened under the influence of Ettore Bugatti’s eldest son Jean – an exceptionally gifted designer – to elegant touring cars. His most distinguished coach-built bodyworks were the Type 41 Royale and the Type 57 SC Atlantic, which belong to the most expensive classic cars in the world.
